Wellness Philosophy


An approach to wellness that helps you thrive

At Rockbridge Oaks, our wellness philosophy is focused on empowering a way of life that ensures your body is active, your relationships are strong, your mind is challenged and your spiritual needs are met. This philosophy, called Salus by Solvere, offers programs that emphasize your physical, social, intellectual and spiritual dimensions to help you thrive and assist you in achieving your personal goals. Customized, one-on-one programs provide meaningful opportunities to help you build relationships with others and grow connections through positive social environments.

SALUS (SAL-us), noun. Latin for “well-being.”

Salus is our trademark wellness philosophy that focuses on your potential to achieve your personal goals through engagement and connection. This philosophy will be integrated throughout the Rockbridge Oaks assisted living and memory care community and woven into the array of services and amenities offered. Here, you will find an abundance of programs and ways to connect that will help sustain or improve your health and well-being. Through our signature Salus programs, you, your family and the Rockbridge team are all encouraged to use your unique talents and professional skills.

The Four Components Of Wellness

Salus is a comprehensive approach that concentrates on the Four Components of Wellness — each one a critical element for creating a path to meaningful senior living. To age successfully requires a physically active and mentally stimulating lifestyle, strong social engagement, an environment that supports your unique goals and — perhaps most importantly — a sense of purpose and meaning. Salus equips you with the tools you need to meet these goals.

Strengthening existing connections with family and friends and developing new relationships to stay connected to the community.


Stimulating minds through participation in lifelong learning initiatives and challenging, creative programs.


Continuing the lifelong search for purpose and meaning through faith-based involvement, volunteerism, acts of service, and enjoying meaningful pastimes.


Living a healthy lifestyle through physical exercise and proper nutrition to stay strong and flexible, limiting the risk of disease and disability.
