If you’re searching for the term Senior Center Colorado Springs, you must be looking for a place to live for yourself or an older loved one. It can also be assumed that you may not know your options available. This article will give you a brief description of the three categories of facilities that can be regarded as senior centers and also some information on our facility in particular and why you should consider us.
When looking for a senior center in Colorado Springs, your options fall into three categories: Independent living facilities, assisted living facilities and skilled nursing facilities. There are similarities of each and also some definite differences. Basically, though, they increase in need and care as you move along the list in order.
Independent living facilities are just as the name suggests, centers for adults over 65, but are very self-sufficient. They are still healthy enough to take care of themselves, but want the community of others their same age. If you’ve never been to one, imagine an apartment complex with a club house, events, parties and other social things, but only for older adults. The differences are that the entire place is wheelchair accessible. That’s it. There’s not much else. Other than being senior friendly, there is no healthcare provided or care staff on call.
Assisted living facilities are a step farther in the care spectrum. Like independent living facilities, sometimes they are also apartment style complexes. More often, when larger complexes, they just have interior facing doors. That means long hallways more like a hotel. They still have separate rooms and a lot of similar activities and options. The difference is that they are for folks that need a little more care and can’t get along without help. Assisted living facilities are staffed with 24 hour care givers to help their residents with activities of daily living.
Skilled nursing facilities, sometimes known as nursing homes take the concept even farther. They provide a registered nurse on duty 24/7. They sometimes also provide rehabilitation services. These facilities are for folks who definitely require medical care for many of their needs.
Constant Care of Colorado Springs is an assisted living facility (ALF). The main thing that sets us apart from many other ALF’s is, instead of a large facility, we opted instead for a smaller, more family-like approach. Our residence is a small, quiet and comfortable home in one of our cities beautiful neighborhood. We’d love to show you just how nice it can be for you. We are a great option for a Senior Center Colorado Springs.
My Mother who suffers from dementia has been in Constant Care for a few months and I am thrilled to have found such a gorgeous home and compassionate atmosphere for her. After caring for her myself for several years, I know what it takes to provide an attentive and loving home and Constant Care is just that. Jeff, owner and manager, is 100% on top of her health and medication issues and has developed a special connection with her that keeps her laughing all the time. The 5 other residents and sweet caregivers are incredibly welcoming when I visit and already feel like family. I thank God every day for Jeff and the Constant Care team that is allowing my Mom to age with dignity and grace.
So far, this is definitely my number 1 pick in my search for a facility. First of all, the big corporate assisted living places I visited were too sterile and I had a feeling the residents there were far too lonely. Constant Care was a lovely home with a family vibe. I would live there myself. No one would get lost in the shuffle there. The staff seemed incredibly caring and genuinely involved. It made the residents to love living there. Even my mom would love the place.
Our commitment is to always provide the appropriate services to families for their loved one’s care, mindful of their budget capabilities and needs.
Our caregivers are experienced, caring and compassionate. We bring expert care and family-style community to our residents 24/7.
