How Sunny Vista Enriches Residents’ Lives with Individual Care

The Living Center, Long-Term Care Colorado Springs

Here at The Living Center at Sunny Vista, we tend to the long term care medical and personal needs of residents who need some help managing the day-to-day tasks in their lives.

We customize our long-term services to each resident’s unique needs in a Colorado Springs community offering support, activities, and a comfortable home. The Living Center promotes the independence of each member of our community as our care team provides residents rehabilitative and health care services to help them stay active.

We are very proud that our dedication in caring for seniors was recognized this year when Sunny Vista and The Living Center won the 2022 Pinnacle Customer Experience Award. That honor is given to providers who achieve best-in-class customer satisfaction and is based on feedback from residents and their families.

How Does The Living Center Enrich The Life Of Your Loved One? With Individual Care

At The Living Center, our staff is there to help every member of our community with their daily tasks. Our caring staff is also well-versed in caring for residents who are living with the medical conditions that older adults face.

Our rehabilitation and skilled nursing staff work with our outside healthcare partners to provide the kind of individualized care that ensures every member of The Living Center community stays on the road to recovery.

Residents of Sunny Vista can get either long-term care and short-term rehab, depending on their needs. Long-term care is designed for individuals who have chronic illnesses, disabilities, or functional limitations that make it difficult for them to live independently. The goal of long-term care is to provide ongoing support and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing, dressing, eating, and mobility. It focuses on maintaining the person’s quality of life and providing a supportive environment for their long-term needs.

Short-term rehab, also known as rehabilitative care or subacute care, is a more focused and intensive form of care aimed at helping individuals recover from an illness, injury, surgery, or hospital stay. The goal of short-term rehab is to restore the person’s physical, cognitive, and functional abilities to a level where they can safely return home or transition to a lower level of care. Short-term rehab usually ranges from a few days to several weeks, depending on the individual’s condition and their progress toward recovery.

What is The Living Center and what does it offer?

The Living Center is a community of 116 private rooms providing all the comforts of home as well as safety features offering peace of mind. Each of our private suites has non-slip tile in the showers, bathrooms offering wheelchair access, built-in wardrobes, landline telephones, individual climate control for heating and air conditioning, cable television, free Wi-Fi, and large windows offering expansive views. Residents can enjoy their free time in a secure and maintenance-free home that’s tended to by our housekeeping staff and monitored by a round-the-clock emergency call system.

Our community also provides the opportunity for residents to enjoy the company of their neighbors. Residents here meet and socialize in our dining area over meals that include omelets, salads, sandwiches, and burgers that made to each resident’s personal taste. Outside normal dining hours, resident snack on cottage cheese, Jell-O, fruits, and cookies that they can request right from their room.

Residents here relax outdoors on patios and walking paths on a campus that features captivating views of Pikes Peak. There are life-enrichment opportunities to keep everyone busy at The Living Center, including painting, exercise classes, as well as weekly van trips to concerts and other events. We have our own theater, a library, a full-service salon and spa, a state-of-the-art fitness center, concierge services, and other amenities to help every member of our community live this chapter of their life to the fullest.

What does it mean to be a nonprofit community?

Operating as a nonprofit organization means that any revenue after operating expenses, generated by the facility, are reinvested into the organization to improve services, enhance the living environment, or expand the range of assistance provided. Nonprofits are often exempt from certain taxes and may also benefit from grants and donations from individuals, foundations, or government agencies, which can further support their mission.
