Learn more about her story and how our PrimeFit wellness program plays an integral role in the health and wellness of residents.

Before Elsa Cox was a resident at Fairwinds – Ivey Ranch senior living in Oceanview, she suffered a fall and injured her right side. The injury kept her from driving for three months. Since moving to Fairwinds – Ivey Ranch, she has been taking exercise classes, focusing on her physical health. She believes this focus has helped her recovery. In fact, one of her doctors recently noted that her bone scan had improved and was in better condition than a previous scan two years ago.
