Experience the Sterling Way to Maintain Optimal Wellness

It takes determination to actively engage in a wellness program on a consistent basis, but the benefits are substantial and well-documented. Having the Sterling Way Wellness Center on campus eliminates a huge impediment to exercising on a consistent basis.  Our 7,500 sq. ft. center with its indoor heated therapeutic saltwater pool and complete suite of exercise equipment and space enable our residents, with the help of our trained staff, to receive those benefits of better health and wellbeing. 

Our residents who are dealing with chronic conditions when they move to Sterling Estates, in many cases, receive positive results in pain management and improvement in conditions by such engagement. Below we have outlined some of the chronic conditions many experience and how our wellness programs beginning with an agreed-upon Personal Wellness Plan can help mitigate them.

There’s nothing more important to us at Sterling than the health and well-being of our residents. With over 25 years of experience in caring for seniors, we believe our Sterling Way wellness programs are very effective if followed, in improving your physical and mental well-being. The Sterling staff is fully committed to helping residents maintain their wellness by providing support, counsel, and professionally designed testing and training programs that help them meet or exceed their wellness goals.
