Catharine’s Quality of Life residential homes create a small family atmosphere in which our resident family members don’t passively observe life – they actively live it. Our daily routine provides a familiar structure that offers comfort and security to each person and minimizes their anxiety and stress. Residents are involved in numerous small-group, daily activities designed to meet their individualized needs and provide mental, physical and social stimulation. Our 2-3 daytime staff focuses on each of our resident’s remaining strengths and interacts with them in a variety of family-oriented activities. Thus we successfully implement our innovative “activity-based” Alzheimer’s care which enriches the quality of life of each of our residents.
We are different - With more staff per resident than any home or facility in Colorado, our 2-3 staff ensures that each of our residents receives ample individualized attention on a daily basis.
