Person-Centered Care


Person-Centered Care (PCC) is the common thread running throughout all of ERS’s communities. It’s about caring for residents as individuals and respecting their beliefs, values and needs.

Life at Blanchester is something special. You feel that sense of warmth and community even before you walk in the door. And once inside, you see it at every turn – the friendly staff and residents, beautiful decor, landscaping and personal touches that make it home.


As an approach to health, wellness looks beyond the biomedical model and integrates six dimensions of wellness. Healthy living becomes an individual responsibility.

Attitude is as important as exercise, and progress must be measured against individual potential rather than a standard medical norm. Instead of asking, “what’s wrong?” the idea is to probe for “what’s right,” and to build a roster of activities around an individual’s passions and talents.

At Blanchester, our goal is to help older adults make the right choices to remain healthy and independent. By creating individualized wellness programs for our residents and staff, we have chosen to be the innovative leader in creating an environment that enriches the body, mind and spirit.

Six Dimensions of Wellness

The Wellness Team at Blanchester incorporates the six dimensions of wellness into our daily lives:

  • Physical: Activities for cardiovascular, flexibility, muscular strengthening and endurance (i.e., yoga, weight training and running); knowledge of nutrition, medical self-care and appropriate use of the medical system
  • Social: Creation and maintenance of healthy relationships with others and nature
  • Emotional: Awareness and acceptance of feelings and the ability to manage feelings and behaviors (i.e., how you feel about yourself and your ability to cope with stress)
  • Intellectual: Encouraging individuals to expand their knowledge and skills through a variety of resources and cultural activities
  • Vocational: Determining and achieving personal and occupational interests through meaningful activities (i.e., volunteer work, learning a trade or pursuing a hobby)
  • Spiritual: Seeking meaning and purpose in human existence, including developing a strong sense of personal values and ethics
