MONUMENT, Colo. — Jackson Creek Senior Living, located at 16601 Jackson Creek Parkway, hosted a grand opening celebration on Dec. 12 and 300 prospective and current residents, project partners and members of the Monument business community attended to mark this milestone. Jackson Creek offers independent living, assisted living and memory care apartments in a variety of floorplans. Residents began moving into the community in November.
The event included a ribbon-cutting ceremony and remarks from the senior living community’s owners, Rob Oldach, also owner of CSI Construction of Colorado Springs, and John Raycraft, as well as property managers Jay Moskowitz and John Brammeier of WellAge Senior Communities, and Tri-Lakes Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Terri Hayes, among others.
Jackson Creek Senior Living was designed to meet the growing need for senior housing and health care in northern El Paso County. The community is owned by local companies who shared a vision for senior living in Monument that would be unique to the local community and not a template reproduced in other markets.
“We are excited to have Jackson Creek join this community,” Hayes said. “They will fill an important need for quality senior housing and services and create 78 jobs in the community.”
The community is managed by WellAge Senior Communities, a senior care management company located in Lakewood. The project architect is Kephart Architects of Denver, and the interior designer is Lizabeth Jones Interior Design, a Boulder-based firm specializing in senior living environments.
“We’re excited to open this new community to seniors and their families,” said Executive Director Al Fritts. “Our goal is to be a resource for seniors in northern El Paso county and provide quality living arrangements and comprehensive wellness and health services that will help seniors to live and age well.”
Amenities at Jackson Creek Senior Living include three dining venues ranging from a bistro café to a table service restaurant; housekeeping and laundry services; wellness programs and social activities; nursing staff scheduled 24/7; medication management; fitness center and therapy space; onsite medical and professional clinics; a massage room; a theater/chapel space for community presentations and gatherings; a library, internet café and game room; an onsite general store; a complimentary dog wash; gardens, courtyards, walking paths and barbecue areas.
Jackson Creek Senior Living is also equipped with the latest technologies to keep residents connected, engaged and secure, and the community boasts an in-house radio station that residents will run.
Just east of I-25 and a short drive from historic downtown Monument, Jackson Creek Senior Living is conveniently located near restaurants, major grocery stores, pharmacies, banks, medical services and retail shopping. The community sits across from the Tri-Lakes YMCA and is near some of the area’s top attractions, including Garden of the Gods, Manitou Springs, the Air Force Academy, Pikes Peak, Cheyenne Mountain State Park and the Palmer Lake Recreation Area.
