Service Coordination Coming to Homeport Communities

3/1/2017 | Recent News

As part of its laser focus on meeting the needs of its residents, Central Ohio affordable housing provider Homeport has partnered with National Church Residences to provide enhanced service coordination in its senior communities.

“Homeport is passionate about ensuring that its senior residents are healthy, financially stable and can age in place,” said Homeport President & CEO Bruce Luecke. “Our new partnership with National Church Residences exemplifies the comprehensive support we aim to provide our residents.”

The relationship between Homeport and National Church Residences begins March 1 and will support roughly 250 seniors of Homeport’s Eastway Village and Eastway Court in Whitehall, Elim Manor on the East Side of Columbus, and Fieldstone Court on the city’s South Side. Homeport’s Hamilton Crossing, 64 one and two bedroom apartments in Whitehall, will also be served by National Church Residences when that community for seniors opens in the fall.

As part of the organization’s “Home for Life” initiative, National Church Residences’ Service Coordinators will engage Homeport residents and assess their needs to live independently. Preferred providers such as nurses will come on site to complete routine health screenings.

“National Church Residences has distinguished itself not only in providing first-rate services but is known for providing the kind of critical outcome data we need to make sure we are meeting our goals of opportunity, security and dignity for our residents -- particularly our seniors,” said Alex Romstedt, Homeport’s Director of Resident Services.

“We could not be more excited to expand our mission,” said Terry Allton, National Church Residences’ Senior Vice President of Home and Community Services. “This program will allow us to serve more seniors living in their own homes in these communities.”
