It has been quite a journey since the onset of COVID-19. An invisible threat that has changed our lives significantly. Thankfully, we had telephones, video chat, and facetime options during that time that helped tremendously. We appreciate your cooperation and patience in the last several months.  Although the mask mandate has relaxed there are still visitation restrictions in Senior care settings per  the State of Colorado governor’s office and the Colorado Dept of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE).  As always we closely monitor changes for the county and state rules to ensure we are always doing what is best for our residents, families and staff.
