Partnering with Home Health Providers to Support Aging in Place

Our lifestyle at Jackson Creek Senior Living is centered on fostering wellness from every angle: Social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual and physical. We offer different classes, programs and activities to help our residents feel healthy and fulfilled. Plus, our person-centered approach to wellness is designed to support each individual on their aging journey with ample opportunities to stay active and engaged.

As part of our wellness-focused lifestyle, we partner with other resources in our community that also serve adults ages 62 and older—this allows us to provide truly comprehensive care and support for everyone who calls Jackson Creek home. Bridges Community Home Health is one of our close partners, offering a range of health services that let our residents more successfully age in place.

Our community was designed with dedicated rehabilitation and physical therapy spaces, making it an ideal place to host home health providers who can help residents build strength and heal as quickly and steadily as possible. Bridges offers all residents a complimentary health screening when they first move in to identify individual needs and develop personalized care plans that help all members of our community age well.

“A lot of what we do once we identify a person’s needs is provide education to help them stay active and well,” Regional Director of Bridges Home Health Clinical Business Development Lane Pont said. “We look out for residents who have had frequent falls or may be used to living in a smaller space because living here they may experience a change in their level of activity, so endurance may be an issue. We also look at ways to build endurance and strength through fall prevention and therapy techniques.”

In addition to initial assessments, Bridges staff hold educational seminars about a variety of senior health topics and evidence-based senior fitness classes. They also work with top specialists along the Front Range to help residents connect with any additional care they may need.

“We help people with cognitive- issues like Parkinson’s, dementia and Alzheimer’s; we have specialists that can provide support,” Pont explained. “We also have social workers who can help find additional resources or coordinate non-medical services. For residents with hard to manage long-term diagnoses, we can have a care partner come and support them.”

For residents who need support but don’t qualify for home health services, Bridges offers outpatient services to help them stay on track with their treatment or recovery plans.

“It is a very nice way to help transition people through the continuum, so they can stay happy, healthy and independent. With that continuity of care, Jackson Creek really helps residents age in place,” Pont added.

Wellness is a top priority at Jackson Creek—our entire community is designed and staffed to support all facets of health and happiness for our residents and their loved ones. Our staff uses individualized programs that focus on wellness, not illness. Our independent living, assisted living and memory care apartments offer opportunities to build friendships and explore new hobbies, with the peace of mind that our 24/7 staff is available to provide additional support if it’s ever needed.
