As individuals age, the decision to transition to assisted living becomes a significant consideration for many families. Columbine Health Systems, the leader in senior care in Northern Colorado, offers guidance and support to help families navigate this important decision.

What is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is more than just a helping hand; it's about promoting overall well-being and independence through personalized care. Residents at Columbine's three assisted living centers - Columbine Commons in Windsor, CO, Lakeview Commons in Loveland, CO, and New Mercer Commons in Fort Collins, CO - enjoy a vibrant lifestyle with opportunities for socialization, engagement, and personal growth.

When to Consider Assisted Living

For those considering assisted living, signs that it may be the right choice include difficulty with activities of daily living (ADLs), social isolation, safety concerns, and caregiver burnout. Assisted living provides the necessary support to maintain independence while ensuring safety and well-being.

Visit Potential Communities

When making the decision, it's essential to research and visit potential communities to ensure they meet your needs and expectations. Columbine Health Systems' assisted living facilities have been recognized as NoCo Style's “Best of NoCo,” reflecting our commitment to excellence in senior care. With a full continuum of care services available, including patio homes, independent living, skilled nursing, memory care, therapy services, infusion therapy, home care, non-medical care, medical equipment, pharmacy, chaplains, and transportation, Columbine offers comprehensive support for every stage of aging.
