This continuum care senior community provides comprehensive care services to older adults, accommodating their evolving health and lifestyle needs. This model integrates various levels of care within a single community, offering a seamless transition between independent living, assisted living, and skilled nursing care. Residents can age in place, minimizing the disruptions often associated with relocating to different facilities as their health conditions change.
Moving is one of life’s most stressful events, regardless of an individual’s age or life situation. For older adults, moving can affect physical, mental, and emotional well-being and add confusion and stress to their later years. Disrupted routines and the hassle of packing and unpacking all of one’s personal belongings—and possibly downsizing—are just a few factors contributing to the enormous amount of effort that goes into a major move.
For seniors moving out of their long-time homes to take up residence in independent living communities, these normal stressors are often compounded by feelings of sadness and apprehension. They may also wonder if the move is temporary or if they will need to move again to obtain additional levels of care as they grow older.
The good news is that it is possible to move to independent living and have your new home adjust to meet your needs as they change—so all you’ll have to do is move once. Casey’s Pond, beautifully located at the foot of a majestic mountain range in Steamboat Springs, offers older adults several options as they settle into the next chapter of their lives.
A continuum senior care community offers a comprehensive approach to meeting the evolving needs of its residents, providing a range of services from independent living to inclusive memory care at all levels. One significant benefit is the seamless transition between different levels of care within the same community. Residents can start with assisted living and easily move to rehabilitation or skilled nursing as their health requirements change—without changing the location of their home. This environment facilitates the development of lasting friendships, reduces feelings of isolation, and encourages participation in various activities, maintaining a sense of purpose and fulfillment.
Senior rehabilitation is a specialized form of healthcare designed to help older adults recover from physical or cognitive impairments and regain their independence. It is a comprehensive approach that addresses the unique needs and challenges seniors face as they go through the rehabilitation process.
Common reasons for senior rehabilitation include the following:
Senior rehabilitation programs are typically tailored to the individual’s specific needs, considering their medical history, current health status, and personal goals. Rehabilitation may include a combination of physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and other interventions.
Casey’s Pond offers residents dually certified apartments. This means that a person can move into an apartment as an independent living resident—and stay there, even if their needs change. Residents can add assisted living services to their apartment, so they do not have to move. Not all of the apartments at Casey’s Pond are set up to be dually certified, so there is limited availability. Older adults interested in this arrangement—truly moving just once!—should reach out sooner rather than later as there is a waiting list for these apartments.
There are two primary ways for residents to begin enjoying life at Casey’s Pond: the Choice plan and the Advantage plan.
This option offers a flexible, month-to-month type rental. Residents pay a small, one-time community fee then pay monthly. Residents who take advantage of this plan have access to all services and amenities—including higher levels of care as needed for the prevailing market rate. There are two distinct neighborhoods under this plan: efficiency apartments with a kitchenette and larger luxury apartments with more space and fully equipped kitchens. Because of the flexibility of this plan, it is the more expensive option of the two.
With the Advantage plan, new residents pay a one-time refundable entrance fee and ongoing monthly fees, choosing from three different types of contracts. The initial entrance fee means residents can feel secure, knowing they are guaranteed they can stay in place for the rest of their lives—even if they outlive their financial assets and need additional health care. One receives discounted monthly fees at all levels of living, with the most significant savings in independent living. One has priority access to higher levels of living.
Keep in mind that as a non-profit senior living community, our financial decisions are mission-driven rather than profit-driven, prioritizing resident well-being over profits. Any profit realized by the community is reinvested into the community to benefit the residents. This can result in a focus on enhanced services, better staffing ratios, and improved communities.
Casey’s Pond Inclusive memory care is a specialized approach in providing support and services at every stage of senior living. Whether residents are in Independent Living, Assisted Living, or Skilled Nursing, they have access to specialized programs that cater to their unique needs. Our approach embraces diversity and ensures equal access to care for all individuals, regardless of their background, culture, or identity.
We emphasize personalized care plans that address each individual’s specific challenges and preferences, fostering a supportive and respectful atmosphere. Incorporating inclusivity into memory care practices aims to enhance the overall well-being, dignity, and quality of life for individuals living with memory-related conditions while promoting a more compassionate and equitable caregiving experience.
