7 Details to Consider When Picking an Assisted Living Community

People sometimes require extra assistance with managing the daily tasks in their lives, and The Retreat at Sunny Vista assisted living is there to provide this kind of specialized senior living care.

The caregivers at our Colorado Springs campus work to provide residents the support they need and the independence they cherish. We know there are plenty of issues to weigh when finding a new assisted living program, so we’ve come up with a list of some things to consider in helping guide your search.

The details to consider when picking an assisted living community

1. Casual and Fine Dining

We are proud of the fact that Sunny Vista offers a certified executive chef who caters to our residents’ tastes and nutritional needs by crafting healthy cuisine using local and organic ingredients. We offer a full dining experience at our Pike’s Peak restaurant. There’s also Culebra Café for a more casual dining experience, and there are lots of culinary choices here to satisfy each resident’s palette.

2. Lifestyle-enriching amenities

From visits to our full-service salon and spa, to movies shown at our on-campus theater, Sunny Vista residents enjoy a wide range of amenities. There’s also concierge service, field trips, social hours, housekeeping, our own library, and much more.

3. Spacious apartments with modern finishes

Our one- and two-bedroom assisted living apartments come with open floor plans that have been designed with the comfort and needs of our residents in mind. The apartments feature large walk-in showers, plenty of closet space, and deluxe kitchenettes. The homes are appointed with modern fixtures and can be tailored to each resident’s unique tastes.

We treasure the peace of mind that comes with knowing each resident at Sunny Vista lives in a safe and secure home that’s part of a community equipped with a 24-hour emergency call system. Our staff is always available to respond to any need.

5. A dedicated caregiving team

We like to say at Sunny Vista that our highly qualified team is fiercely dedicated to every resident we serve. Our round-the-clock nursing staff brings a gentle bedside manner, a depth of experience, and a sincere desire to see each resident succeed. We help residents with medication management and daily tasks like grooming and getting dressed for the day, and we allow them to have as much independence as possible.

 6. A Rocky Mountain campus

Sunny Vista has stunning views of Pikes Peak. Visitors come from far and wide to see the summit, one of the highest in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. But residents here can see it right from their own community. We’re nestled on a campus where people can lounge on their outdoor patios and stroll along walking paths.

7. Programs that nurture healthy living

We nourish every aspect of our resident’s lives to support their physical, emotional, social, intellectual, spiritual, and environmental wellness. Sunny Vista offers a state-of-the-art fitness center, physical therapy gym, educational classes, lectures as well as resident-run programs and activities for the whole community.
