PILLARS OF SUCCESSFUL ENCORES

The ELP is built on five basic pillars. These pillars are Mental, Physical, Service, Social, and Spiritual. A foundational principle of the ELP is that the Bible and modern science on aging teach that if seniors are active and growing in each of the five basic areas they will be happier, healthier, will live longer, and be more productive in their encore years.
