Senator Cheri Jahn to Visit WestLake Care Community

WestLake Care Community is proud to host Senator Cheri Jahn from Senate District 20 on Wednesday, September 12th. A long-time advocate for Colorado Seniors, Senator Jahn will be meeting with residents, families, and staff to discuss current issues that directly affect residents in long-term care communities.

This event will feature resident’s stories recorded through the Digital Storytelling Project with the Colorado Coalition for Culture Change as well as a video highlighting “Mission Moments” at WestLake Care Community. A tour of the community and description of care partnership changes at WestLake Care Community will be provided by neighborhood ambassadors.

Located in the WestLake neighborhood in Lakewood, Colorado, WestLake Care Community is a caring community that offers both rehabilitation services and long term care. Recent progressive changes have been implemented in this community, which strives to shift from the traditional institutional model of nursing care to one that is founded on relationships. At the heart of this is the implementation of “Care Partnerships,” a unique concept focusing on the entire Care Partner Team: residents, families, staff and collaborative health professionals

“The staff at WestLake Care Community is excited about these changes and the positive effect they will have on our Care Partners and community,” Ruth Minnema, Westlake’s Nursing Home Administrator.   “These changes truly reflect our mission statement: Our Home is a Place Where Relationships Matter.”

WestLake Care Community is privately owned and locally operated by Denver-based Colavria Hospitality, which offers management services for skilled nursing, rehabilitation, assisted living and independent living communities. Colavria provides comprehensive management services to communities in Clinical Services, Accounting, Operations, Human Resources and Culture Change.
