Care Philosophy at Hillcrest of Loveland in Loveland, Colorado

Care Philosophy

Home 2 Stay

At Hillcrest of Loveland and throughout MBK senior living communities, residents experience a significantly lower rehospitalization rate than the national average. Readmission to the hospital and repeated emergency room visits after an injury, illness, or surgery can have an enormous negative impact on residents and their families. It also puts additional stress on outside health care providers. Home 2 Stay is a signature program of our Loveland, CO, community, and our way of helping residents avoid rehospitalization whenever possible. Modeled on the Interact philosophy, or Interactions to Reduce Acute Transfers, Home 2 Stay echoes our practice of person-first, relationship-based care. Our care team pays close attention to residents after a return from an initial hospital stay to monitor even small changes in health status. By staying on top of these incremental shifts, we can intercede with an adjustment in care to head off readmission. Outside health providers trust that their patients are getting the support they need to get better, and residents are at ease knowing they are home to stay.

Supporting Strength & Wellness

Rehospitalization is stressful for residents, families, and outside health care systems, and can set your or your loved one back in recovery. MBK is one of the first senior living companies to address the problem of repeated hospital readmissions and emergency room visits, and actively seek solutions for how to avoid them when feasible. Home 2 Stay uses a variety of techniques to stay a step ahead of negative shifts in health status, encourage recovery, and prevent rehospitalization when possible:

  • Timely detection of and response to resident health status changes
  • 24/7 RN consultant available to review status and recommend appropriate care changes
  • Collaboration of care with hospitals and outside professionals before, during, and after hospitalization
  • Discharge coordination and post-hospital follow-up to monitor health status and quality of life
