‘The Gables at Guilford’ Becomes ‘Solstice Senior Living at Guilford’
GUILFORD, Conn. (Nov. 27, 2017) – Local senior living community The Gables at Guilford is under new management and today announces a new name: Solstice Senior Living at Guilford. The announcement results from a recently launched, national joint venture, Solstice Senior Living, between the property’s ownership group, NorthStar Healthcare Income, Inc., (NHI) and Integral Senior Living, a premier provider of senior living management services nationally.
“Living and working at Guilford will only get better as we introduce new activities and culinary programs,” said Dale Cordle, Executive Director of Solstice Senior Living at Guilford. “So, aside from getting used to a new name, residents, associates, family members and community friends should not expect any disruption in their day-to-day experiences.” 
Solstice Senior Living has assumed management of 32 NHI-owned independent living communities nationally. Each community will be rebranded under the Solstice umbrella, with Integral Senior Living (ISL) providing its industry-leading management expertise and NHI maintaining business and real estate ownership of each property.
Gerald “Gerry” Jackson has been named Solstice’s senior vice president. Jackson has more than 30 years of experience in senior living, assisted living and behavioral health, including leadership roles in training, operations, and program and staff development.
“Solstice will create value for our residents by optimizing operations and programming, with the goal of taking our residents’ experience to a new level,” Jackson said.
Activity and culinary offerings are widely recognized as key factors in seniors’ selection of an independent living community, and Solstice’s goal of enhancing these services exemplifies the venture’s ability to combine management best practices with purposeful resident engagement to support community utilization and retention.
Solstice Senior Living at Guilford, and all other Solstice communities, will now feature ISL’s trademark Vibrant Life™ activity program as well as a newly developed culinary program, Elevate. Vibrant Life focuses on seven core components, ranging from inspiration and wellness to adventure and community connections. The program promotes joyful experiences, meaningful endeavors, and abundant opportunities to connect residents with family, friends and the Guilford community.
Elevate will provide Solstice residents with flexible and changing culinary options. The new program will be complemented by monthly “Food for Thought” meetings, which have proved successful at other ISL communities in engaging residents in culinary and menu-related decisions.
Solstice Senior Living at Guilford is located at 201 Granite Road, Guilford, CT 06437. Visit for more information.
