MONUMENT, Colo. — Jackson Creek Senior Living has named Annie Pai to lead the community as wellness director, a central role that oversees health and wellness services throughout the community. Pai has more than 15 years’ experience working as a director at multiple senior communities throughout Colorado and she previously oversaw the memory care services at Jackson Creek.
As wellness director, Pai intends to continue Jackson Creek’s mission of providing personalized care that addresses residents’ complete health needs. She plans to maintain initiatives for individual assessments, onsite health and wellness services, and coordinated care with outside medical providers. Jackson Creek Senior Living offers independent living, assisted living and memory care residences.
Pai has held multiple roles in senior care with a focus on strengthening communication and working closely with families. “I feel like communication gives people peace of mind,” she said. She said she believes families and residents benefit from more open lines of communication, both with their community and each other, and she hopes to introduce this philosophy into future wellness initiatives. “It’s rewarding to be the voice for them and make sure they’ve got the advocacy that they need.”
She previously worked for Valpak of Southern Colorado, Sunrise Senior Living and Silver Key Senior Services, all located in Colorado. In addition to community relations and supervisory roles for assisted living and memory care communities, Pai is a registered nurse with experience in patient care and clinical settings.
Pai began her senior living management career as the Director of Residential Services for Silver Key Senior Services, a volunteer and outreach program for seniors based in Colorado Springs.
In addition to attending the University of Evansville in Indiana, Pai has a Professional Advancement Certificate in Gerontology and Reiki Master Teacher training.
