The Well•Spring Group is turning the spotlight on a full range of services for seniors – both inside and outside the walls of its well-known retirement community, Well•Spring in Greensboro.
“As we approach the 25th anniversary of our award-winning retirement community, many people know us as that wonderful place,” said Stephen P. Fleming, president and CEO of The Well•Spring Group. “But today Well•Spring encompasses not only one of the finest life plan communities in the country but also offers a full range of services for older adults that can be delivered at home as well as throughout Greensboro.”
The company has branded its home and community-based service line as “Well•Spring Solutions,” a name that combines the Well•Spring brand with what many older adults are seeking – a solution to their unique situation.
“Oftentimes older adults experience an unexpected incident that can dramatically affect their life and those of their loved ones,” Fleming said. “These moments are emotional and confusing for them and their families, who may have never experienced such a situation.”
To provide greater ease at such times, a new, streamlined approach has been designed, Just1Navigator, through which new clients can contact Well•Spring and begin the process of identifying the right solution for them. The program features a social worker who can be reached via phone. The Navigator will meet with the adult in need of service and/or their caregiver – at no charge – to assess the person’s situation, living environment and the caregiver’s abilities in order to recommend a strategy for addressing the new needs. Strategies may include home care, adult day care, medication management, and independent or assisted living.
“Of course, we will make the person aware of Well•Spring’s particular services, but if for any reason one of our offerings is not the ideal fit, the Navigator will provide information about optional resources in the area,” said Chip Cromartie, executive director of Well•Spring Solutions. “The Just1Navigator program is designed to make typically challenging situations easier to deal with and provide a recommended strategy for moving forward.”
With an average of 10,000 adults turning 65 every day and 75 million baby boomers about to retire, additional types of support are a critical need. Fleming said. “The United States is on the verge of a challenging time in caring for older adults, and we need to position ourselves to respond to these dramatic shifts.”
Well•Spring Solutions and additional long-range plans by The Well•Spring Group are intended to do just that.
The life plan community also is positioning for a robust future. Having launched the new Greenway Villas complex across the street, construction is well under way on a $30-million addition to the central campus. This project will add nearly three times the space for dining and a 320-seat theater, a new lounge, art studios, a woodworking shop and more. “Once completed in 2018, we will be able to bring many cultural experiences directly to our residents,” said Alan Tutterow, executive director of Well•Spring, A Life Plan Community.
In addition, The Well•Spring Group in June assumed management of The Village at Brookwood, a life plan community in Burlington, owned by Cone Health.
