Eaton Senior Communities offers annual REACH (Residents Engaging in Authentic Conversations on Health) interviews to all residents, using a proprietary questionnaire, to identify resident needs, provide linkages to services, collect data for program improvement and research projects, and collaborate with residents to create a Wellness Plan for the next year.
Individual Wellness Coaching is offered, at no cost, through a partnership with Metropolitan State University of Denver. Each semester, MSU interns practice their coaching skills while Eaton residents benefit from this one-on-one support to reach their health and wellness goals.
Eaton’s Wellness Program provides an atmosphere of encouragement with an emphasis on keeping residents healthy and in charge of their own well-being.
Eaton Senior Communities partners with Legacy Healthcare Services to ensure each resident has support to maintain the highest levels of function and independence. Legacy leads two exercise classes each week, evaluates residents referred to them after falls, and offers personal training in the Fitness Center.

Visits to residents (on- and off-site) provide individual support.
