Off the Hill: Castle Peak offers care for senior citizens

By Tricia Swenson | Off the Hill
In the Eagle Valley, age is more of a feeling and an attitude instead of a number, but when the time comes, it is nice to know there is now a facility that can keep us here longer with the care we need. That place is Castle Peak Senior Community, nestled in downtown Eagle Ranch. Operated by Augustana Care, a non-profit organization that provides housing, health care and community-based services to older generations and others in need, Castle Peak Senior Community helps residents live the lives that most inspire them with the conveniences, services, health and personal care needed to maintain the highest level of independence. Castle Peak has 20 different apartments with floor plans consisting of two-bedroom, one-bedroom and studio floor plans. There are four types of living options at Castle Peak. • Assisted Living helps those who need a little extra help. A range of health and personal care services. Care staff is on site 24 hours each day and licensed nurses are available at the adjacent skilled nursing center. • Rehabilitation Care provides a short-term solution with skilled nursing care after illness or hospitalization due to surgery. • Memory Care is specifically designed for those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia or memory loss. • Long-term skilled nursing care offers a compassionate environment for those with needs that are more complex. Monica McCarroll, Director of Marketing at Castle Peak Senior Community, said the response has been wonderful. “The community has been very supportive, we’re filling up just as fast as we expected.” With the valley growing and aging, this new amenity fits in with fostering a fullness of life that makes the community whole. The location is close to the movie theater, restaurants, walking paths and Brush Creek Elementary School “We have a great inter-generational program with the school. The kids will come over and play cards with them, do a craft project or even sing and play piano for them, it’s great to see the joy from both age groups,” said McCarroll.
