Aging in Place Can be Challenging in Routt County - Casey's Pond

Aging in Place Can be Challenging in Routt County – As Published by Steamboat Pilot


Posted: October 13, 2021

The Steamboat Pilot recently wrote an article about the challenges of aging in place in Routt County and how options for affordable and attainable housing is becoming increasingly limited.

Even when local seniors make the often gut-wrenching decision to relocate and give up their own homes, housing choices in affordable, assisted living locations are slim. Routt County is home to one facility providing a multi-level, progressive continuum of care, Casey’s Pond, which offers four levels: independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and rehab, and memory support. Casey’s Pond is the only such facility within a 150-mile radius, according to Melissa Lahay, marketing director, and currently has a waiting list for the three levels of services beyond independent living.“We’ve seen an increase in people moving into care neighborhoods. Older adults have declined through the pandemic, those living in their own homes and in communities, due to isolation and decreased movement,” Lahay noted, adding most of the residents at Casey’s Pond have family members who live in Routt County.
