Home 2 Stay
Rehospitalization after an injury or illness and frequent acute care emergency room visits create enormous stress on Assisted Living residents, their families, and the outside health care providers that serve them. As an MBK community, Cottonwood Creek boasts a far lower rehospitalization rate than the national average, thanks to our dedication to relationship-based care and our unique Home 2 Stay program. Home 2 Stay is modeled on the Interact philosophy, which promotes interaction to reduce acute care transfers to the hospital. What exactly does this entail? Our care teams incorporate person-first care to stay alert to small changes in health status and intervene with appropriate and proactive care to promote sustainable recovery for our residents. Essentially, our care model lets us get to know our residents well enough to be attuned to their needs as they change. This deep attention gives our residents a feeling of confidence, knowing they are home to stay, and relieves some of the stresses felt by families and outside health care systems.
Promoting Sustainable Recovery at MBK

- Timely response to changes in resident health status
- 24/7 RN consultant available to assess health status and recommend appropriate changes to care
- Clear and precise communication and collaboration with outside health care professionals and hospital staff before, during, and after hospitalization
- Coordination of discharge from hospital and follow up to assess recovery status and wellness
