Few birds fascinate us as much as the hummingbird. They open our eyes to the wonder of the world and inspire us to open our hearts to loved ones and friends. As we sought inspiration for our AltaVita community for seniors, we walked the grounds prior to construction. Hummingbirds were abundant, and the adoption of this colorful, energetic, long-living, Colorado bird, with its tenacity and elusiveness, seemed fitting.
As we age, frailties may emerge, yet the tenacity of the human spirit endures. Throughout our grounds, we will foster this relationship with our hummingbird neighbors, to delight our residents and remind us that life is rich and every personal connection has meaning.
