Nine Core Elements
Nine Core Elements
Inspīr Carnegie Hill delivers a transformative senior living experience that exceeds every dimension of senior care. The residence was purposefully designed to promote health and wellness as well as harmony and connectedness for residents, families, and staff. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer sweeping cityscape views and ample natural light. Wood finishing, stone accents, and lush gardens keep residents close to nature. And the culinary delights from our kitchens spark the senses and rekindle memories. We curate an environment and lifestyle that supports a philosophy of vibrant, intentional living and meaningful connection based on nine core elements:
People who are actively engaged lead a better life. That’s why we tap into our residents’ interests and abilities to keep them as stimulated as possible—both in the building and in the city—every single day.
We all need a sense of purpose in life. We help our residents find and keep that sense of purpose throughout their journey by promoting opportunities for them to engage in meaningful activities—including programs highlighting resident-facilitated teaching and intergenerational learning.
Movement + Mobility
Our bodies are designed to move. And so, we offer daily programs that keep our residents in motion naturally and purposefully. We empower residents to stay mobile, in both the building and the city.
Art + Music
Art and music are universal languages. They energize the senses, tap into faded memories, and invigorate the soul. We infuse art and music into our environments, and regularly use them as therapeutic tools.
People who are connected to faith-based communities and social networks feel better and live longer. We keep our residents connected through community-based partnerships, cultural programming and outings, on-site faith-based services, and technology solutions.
Maintaining loving relationships with family is critical for good mental health. We encourage family involvement, and we help spouses, adult children, grandchildren, and extended relatives stay connected to our residents.
Caring for the brain is important at any age. We believe that what’s good for the brain is also good for the body, mind, and soul. We offer lifelong learning classes, cognitively stimulating activities, brain-healthy foods, and fitness classes to keep the neurons active and to maximize brain function.
Connecting to nature is elemental. Our common spaces are lush with plants and beautiful gardens. Our floor-to-ceiling windows fill the interior of the building with natural light. Nature also means nutrition. And so, we use whole foods, vegetarian diets, and natural ingredients to promote health. We curate culinary offerings that incorporate plant-based protein sources along with fresh, locally sourced vegetables and herbs.
Dau Voire says, “Laughter is, and will always be, the best form of therapy.” And we agree, which is why we incorporate a little humor into everything we do. And we partner with organizations like Hilarity for Charity to spread Alzheimer’s awareness to younger generations around the world.
