Sometimes, people use “nursing home” as a general reference to any place where members of the senior community live. However, this is definitely not accurate, there are very specific differences between a nursing home and an assisted living community.
Jen Lennon from KKTV 11 Connect speaks with Chris Pogar, the Director of Sales and Marketing at The Retreat at Sunny Vista. We are still accepting new residents during COVID19 while maintaining mandatory guidelines. We are also doing live virtual tours.
The Retreat at Sunny Vista in Colorado Springs is excited and honored to be recognized by the Colorado Springs Gazette with the Gold award for best retirement community in it's annual Best of the Springs review.

COVID-19 has led to a lot of restrictions for our residents including visitations and group activities. At the Retreat we have continued to get creative and find ways to keep our residents active, healthy and engaged. Our Life Enrichment Director, Pamela Cooper, was interviewed by KKTV recently to share the many great things still happening in our assisted living and memory support community.
If you have a loved one living with dementia, be it your spouse, your parent or even a neighbor, we consider you to be living with dementia too. We view dementia as a whole community disease.
The Retreat at Sunny Vista’s skilled and experienced staff understands the unique needs of those living with memory impairment. Our Rhythms Dementia Philosophy and Program recognize that dementia changes the way a person experiences the world around them, our job is to create environments where each person can navigate the world successfully and create worlds where life is worth living. It can be a daunting task if you are trying to navigate the dementia journey alone. We are here to help with personalized care and services that celebrate your loved one, because we know supportive family and friends are an integral part of the care team.
