Castle Peak Memory Care Now Open

May 15, 2018

We are pleased and excited to announce that Castle Peak has opened its memory care neighborhood in our health care center.

The neighborhood is designed to provide a secure, comforting and therapeutic environment for older adults with a dementia diagnosis. Our focus is on maximizing residents’ abilities and offering meaningful connections and engaging activities.

Memory care neighborhoods are meant to serve those who require a secure environment and need specialized programming. Staff is trained to provide person-centered care that addresses the unique needs of residents. Before someone is admitted to the community, an assessment is conducted to determine a prospective resident’s needs. Results of the assessment are then shared with family members, so they can make informed decisions regarding their loved one residing in our secure memory care environment. It’s also important to note that we accept Medicaid and most long-term care insurance policies as payment.

Since opening our doors in October, 2016, our goal was to serve 100 people at Castle Peak in the first year. That goal was achieved by the middle of August in 2017. Sixty-seven jobs were created in the first year of operation. Medicare/Medicaid certifications were received in the second quarter of the year and sixty individuals received short-term rehabilitation at Castle Peak and returned home.

We have received numerous comments from employees, residents and families who say they appreciate having Castle Peak in the community. We are fortunate to be in a community that has embraced us with open arms and has given so much to allow this to become part of the valley,” says Director of Nursing Renee Micaletti.

John and Jay Glaser and their sister Betsy Nevin state that their mother Barbara Miller Glaser has flourished, regaining her ability to have meaningful interpersonal interactions with the personal attention she received at Castle Peak for the past five months.

Centrally located in Eagle, Colorado, Castle Peak Senior Life and Rehabilitation offers well-appointed residences, reassuring services, exceptional amenities and health care to support residents into the future. Living options include assisted living, memory care, rehabilitation and skilled nursing. If you know someone who would benefit from a vibrant setting where each resident’s experience is valued, we hope you’ll consider letting them know about Castle Peak.
