Quality, Trained Staff
Documentation + Accountability =
Positive Outcomes with RecTrackerTM
Everything we do is documented in our proprietary web-based system called RecTrackerTM and forms an Electronic Health Record (EHR). You can access your Client Summary page anytime to view assessment results, activity details, and data that tracks progress on goals.
The first step is to get to know your, or your loved one’s strengths, interests and goals. Background information is gathered through interviews, conversations and observations. We learn about physical and mental health, what barriers exist, and previous life activities and interests. You can compare graphed assessment data over time to see longer-term trends.
As a JTR client, authorized family member or health professional, you will receive by email detailed reports for every therapeutic recreation session. Each session report accounts for how every minute was used and what benefits were realized. These reports can be copied to out-of-town family members, so everyone can be kept up to date. If your family member lives in a care facility, with your permission we send copies of the reports to the staff there, as well, so everyone involved with the care of your family member can do so in an informed way.
JTR sponsors The Jackson Therapeutic Recreation Scholarship in the Mohawk College Recreation Therapy program. The Jackson Therapeutic Recreation Scholarship recognizes excellence in field work during internships. The recipient is given a $500 cash award. We are very proud to have this relationship with Mohawk College and work with that institution to promote excellence for the future of the Recreation Therapy profession.
Once again, thank you and Katherine for the wonderful work you do. It is so needed in the community and I cannot think what people would do without your services.
Without doubt, your Recreational Therapists provided the best “quality” time during his stay in long-term care. They provided activities at a personal level that would be impossible for the institution to provide.
Your service is a blessing and needed in the community. The quality of your RTs is amazing. You must have an outstanding screening process and have very high standards. I have peace of mind knowing Elizabeth is visiting and engaging mom in activities that she knows mom will enjoy. Thank you for improving my mother’s quality of life with your service. With great thanks!
I just wanted to say that my mother has gained a lot more confidence in herself and is taking on small tasks again at home that she was not able to do for a very long time. I attribute this to Lorraine. She has helped my mom a lot and my mother really enjoys talking and spending time with her. My sister and I are very pleased with her progress … we just wanted to let you know and please pass on a big Thank You to Lorraine. It means a lot to our family.
Just read (the therapist’s) session notes from her last visit. Wonderful to read! We are so thankful for the superb input of (the therapist) and her approach with our mom. Please pass on to her thanks from the whole family.
Thanks again for all you have done thus far. It is wonderful to see Dad hopeful again!!
Please pass my compliments to my mother’s therapist. I’ve been reading her reports over the past few months and am really pleased with how she is engaging my mother. She seems to have set up a very good rapport with her and seems to know exactly how to engage her, even on days when my mother does not want to initially engage. I wanted to let you know how pleased I am.
Thank you so much and to all who spent time with our brother for the creative interaction and the support that was given to him. I certainly would highly recommend the services of Jackson Therapeutic Recreation to people who would have this kind of a need. Thank you once again for all your help.
The help, support and kindness you provided to my mother was very appreciated. Even though my mother was in a long-term care facility where “everything” was provided, she (we) needed the service your company provides. The Recreation Therapists were wonderful to my mother; I can recommend your agency wholeheartedly. Thank you.
Good morning Matt! I am very pleased with our therapist. She is doing a wonderful job, please thank her for me! I have seen a dramatic difference with my mom this month and it is all thanks to her. I can’t wait to see how she progresses with increasing cognitive stimulation. Amazing service your company provides.
The therapist was wonderful to my dad. Your services and her Thursday visits provided relief to us one day a week and we felt he was in good hands. Thank you.
We have been using their services for four years for a family member in a nursing home. The quality of service in any such organization is the responsibility of the president. Matt Jackson is available and approachable. He has dealt with any issues we have had immediately and to our satisfaction. Our family member thrived on his weekly outings to the mall, the park or the pet store. Each session was followed by a written report describing in detail where they had been and what they had done. Our family would not hesitate to recommend this service and its president, Matt Jackson, to anyone.
We all wish to thank you for your continuing care of our mother (and mother-in-law). We are so pleased with all the reports and the way our mother is relating to the therapist’s visits. Please extend our sincere appreciation to the therapist. We are very well aware that dealing with our mother can pose some serious challenges and we are delighted with the attention and concern which the therapist is obviously providing. With all of us so far away and our visits to the nursing home so few and far between, your services give us confidence that our mother is receiving regular visits from a caring person. Thank you all!!
Carol, Gord and Dale C.
Matt, we would like to thank you for the excellent services that your company has provided to our parents over the years. Your staff provided excellent stimulation for both of our parents. The positive effect on both of them was noticeable and very much appreciated. The long-term care staff also commented on the positive impact of your staff visits on Mom and Dad. Their professional work was sensitive and conscientious and it provided us great peace of mind. Thank you so much.
I travel overseas for extended periods of time. Although my dad was in an excellent long-term care facility, I worried about his having one-on-one time. The young woman sent to us from Jackson Therapeutic Recreation was amazing. She engaged my father in current events, read to him, found interest in his interests. He looked forward to her visits immensely. I was more than pleased. I was very grateful.
Hi Matt. I am pleased with what I read in the RTs notes especially the cognitive stimulation parts. This is one bill I don’t mind paying.
Health Professionals say…
Courtney is an inspiration and breath of fresh air. She has a true passion for Therapeutic Recreation, but most importantly the well-being of her clients. She is innovative, eager, and ambitious in everything that she does. Our residents have an increased quality of life as a result of the service that she provides. I strongly recommend Jackson Therapeutic Recreation.
Katie H., Director of Resident & Family Services, King Nursing Home
Our Recreation therapist from Jackson Therapeutic Recreation is Phenomenal. She started working with a client who was in late stages of dementia. It is very meaningful for our residents to have this personal one on one time at that stage of the disease. Another client that she works with did not come out into the common areas before. Now with Amanda’s help she does and she stays and participates in conversation with others. Jackson Therapeutic helps us fulfill our goals as a facility which is to make clients and families happy.
Lisa Meyers, Health & Wellness Manager, Retirement Community
Knowing there is a resident benefiting from a one-to-one visit from Jackson Services makes it feel like we have another staff member. The Jackson Services staff becomes part of the interdisciplinary team by meshing their goals for the resident with ours, and the open communication and documentation from Jackson Services make achieving a goal much easier. Having JSI at our facility has been a positive experience for the resident, family members and the recreation department staff. We would recommend that all long term care facilities utilize this beneficial service.
