Springpoint’s Innovative Wellness Initiative Boosts Health and Engagement in Affordable Housing Communities

Springpoint and Parker Health Group are implementing the Affordable Housing Wellness Initiative in additional affordable housing communities.

In 2021, Springpoint partnered with Parker Health Group to create the dynamic Affordable Housing Wellness Initiative, which focuses on residents’ physical, intellectual, emotional, and social needs. The 3-year initiative was designed as a pilot program with hopes of expanding to all 19 Springpoint affordable housing communities in New Jersey. Up through 2023, programming was offered at The Gables at West Windsor, Hidden Brook at Franklin, Watchung Terrace at Middlesex, and Wheaton Pointe at East Windsor.

In 2024, Parker Health Group agreed to continue the partnership with Springpoint and reinvest in the initiative due to its ongoing success. With additional funding support from Parker, the LivWell programming will now be offered at four additional Springpoint affordable housing communities: The Crossroads at Howell, The Oaks at Toms River, Portland Pointe, and Stafford by the Bay.

Residents participating in the program have access to LivWell programming designed to keep them healthy, motivated, and focused on living their best lives. Over 135 Springpoint affordable housing residents are enrolled in the program. At least 74% of participants are getting the recommended 150 minutes of exercise per week and steadily improving their fitness assessment scores.

When a resident signs up for the LivWell program, they undergo a comprehensive initial assessment, including a Lifestyle Questionnaire, a Healthy History questionnaire, and a senior fitness test. LivWell staff members use the data from this assessment to deliver evidenced-based programming that engages the individual and improves health and wellness outcomes. The offerings include exercise programs, brain health classes, and additional health education. Participants are reassessed at the six month and one-year marks to monitor improvements in their balance, strength, and agility. 

The LivWell program is an asset to residents and Springpoint is thrilled to bring this transformative initiative to additional affordable housing communities. This expansion highlights Springpoint’s commitment to providing exceptional services and innovative programs that enrich and inspire those we serve by creating exceptional experiences.
