J.Roger Call Administrator

Roger Call - Administrator at Forest Ridge
 
For over forty years I have been involved in the nursing home / retirement service sector. I didn’t intend on this being my career path. However, from the moment I first went to work in a nursing facility, to be able to go to college, I knew I had found my life’s calling.

My career has included individual and multi-site management consisting of all aspects of providing services to seniors. During the course of my career, I have developed a personal mission of, “Giving to those who gave us life.” In our culture nursing homes are often seen as a social “taboo.” I wanted to be involved in helping to change the industry.

The desire to help change the perception of skilled nursing facilities is what guides and motivates the team at Forest Ridge. For our team, our residents come first!
 
 
Jamie Hutchins, Director of Nursing at Forest Ridge Senior Living, began pursuing an education in nursing after being a homemaker and home educating her 4 children. With the support of her family, Jamie graduated from nursing school with honors in the top 10% of her class. Jamie began working in Colorado Springs at a skilled nursing facility as a charge nurse and then became a primary care nurse for a hospice organization. When Forest Ridge Senior Living opened, Jamie was among the first group of nurses hired. Jamie came on full time as MDS Coordinator in June of 2016 and accepted the position of Director of Nursing in May of 2017.

Through her work at Forest Ridge Senior Living, Jamie desires to honor the Lord by serving others — the residents, their families, and the Forest Ridge staff. This desire is summed up in a statement often heard among the management at Forest Ridge Senior Living — “Compassionate Care with Heart.” When Jamie is not working, you will find her exploring the beauty of Colorado with her husband or spending time with her children and grandchildren.

Christi Conner - Business office Manager at Forest Ridge
 
Twenty-nine years ago I walked into a Skilled Nursing Facility for the first time to apply for a job as a nurse assistant. This simple step opened my world to my life’s career and passion.

Throughout the years I have moved from direct nursing care to the financial aspect. I am an active member of Colorado Health Care Association (CHCA) and serve on a Medicaid Provider Committee. I have overseen 26 Colorado facilities as their Medicaid manager while working with residents, families and the counties to understand the Medicaid application process. I have overseen the Business Office functions for multiple facilities and been the helping hand to those looking for answers. And now, I am happy to provide all this knowledge and support to my own local community as I walk the residents, families and others through the insurance maze.
