At Tessera of Brandon our wellness philosophy is a way of life that ensures your mind and body stay healthy, engaged and active.
This philosophy, called Salus™ by Solvere, is powered by Masterpiece Living®, a holistic wellness platform on which all programming for the community is based. Designed to enhance and customize the community-wide successful aging initiative, Masterpiece Living is based on twelve years of research and the studies outlined in the book, Successful Aging, and Dr. Robert L. Kahn, one of the authors, is on the program’s advisory board.

SALUS (SAL-us), noun. Latin for “well-being.”
Salus is our trademark wellness philosophy that focuses on each resident’s potential to achieve his or her personal goals through engagement and connection. In addition to the services and amenities of the community, the Salus philosophy is integrated throughout Tessera of Brandon. Residents will find no shortage of activities, programs and ways to connect with others to sustain or improve their health and well-being. Residents, their families and Tessera of Brandon staff alike are encouraged to use their unique talents and professional skills through our signature Salus programs.
The Salus wellness philosophy centers on holistic care, maintaining and improving what is commonly referred to as the four components of wellness:
1. Physical: Engaging in self-care through both activity and proper nutrition
2. Social: Strengthening and developing existing and new relationships — both with people and pets
3. Intellectual: Performing creative, stimulating activities to re-ignite memories and preserve cognition
4. Spiritual: Reserving time to connect with one’s personal beliefs
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, powered by Masterpiece Living, equips residents with the tools they need to meet these goals.
