OPRS is the largest provider of continuing care retirement communities in Ohio and is recognized nationally as a model for continuing care. OPRS owns 11 retirement communities, including Llanfair Retirement Community and seven home and community-based services divisions known as Senior Independence.
Llanfair has received grants from a fund of the Cambridge Charitable Foundation towards their Supportive Care Unit, Biodex Balance System and Supported Ambulation system.
The Biodex Balance System is being used to help combat the high incidence of falls in the senior population. Falls often lead to increased hospitalizations, emergency room visits, and nursing home placements. The Biodex Balance System provides the precise balance assessment and rehabilitation exercises that can help reduce risk of subsequent falls. This system allows participants and Llanfair's staff to design individualized plans of care. Llanfair believes this system will prevent a significant number of falls, as well as provide the rehabilitation necessary for participants to return to independent living.
