We are honored to have so many supporters of our community and to be included in the Best of Colorado Springs.
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.
News of the first fatalities in the US from coronavirus in a Washington State skilled nursing community is understandably causing concern. We care about the wellbeing of residents and team members in The Retreat at Sunny Vista and want to keep you informed on all we are doing to mitigate the impact this virus has on residents and team members.
We were saddened to hear that over 100 residents will be forced to relocate now that Union Printers Home in Colorado Springs is being shut down. Choosing the right senior living community can be difficult. We have put together a list of 21 questions to evaluate a senior living community. It might aid the seniors or their families in their search.
Extending an Invitation
We would also like to extend an invitation to those residents that are being displaced from their homes and their families to consider The Retreat at Sunny Vista. We offer exceptional living options.
