Dear Friends at AltaVita,
Thank you for remembering Hugh in July when he was hospitalized and me this fall when I had a knee replacement. More than half the flowers you sent me are still quite perky.
I am so grateful to all of you for the caring and professional atmosphere you all have created at AltaVita. You have been an answer to my prayers. Hugh & I love all of you.

To anyone looking for a place for someone they love in a “memory care environment”, please check out AltaVita first!
I found AltaVita when I was desperately looking for a place for my mother, who had just been through 6 nightmarish months. AltaVita had just opened 2 days before my mother was released from the hospital, and it has been a godsend. When I first went in the building, I felt so relieved, I felt this was going to be the place. (and I had looked at ALL of the possible facilities between Boulder and Broomfield!)
My mother has improved so much over the past 6 months since she has been there. I have found my mother again! She is happy and unafraid, at peace, and enjoys the place very much.
The building itself is a first in Colorado, the way it is set up, and the staff is incredible. They are all so caring and kind, from Dr. Long to the care-givers to the maintenance men. The food is delicious, well-planned, and the life enrichment director and her assistant are top notch. Bingo? Not at all…so many different activities… like Bocce Ball, yes, you read that right… in the hall, and everyone has a good time! Each person is encouraged to participate however they can. My mother loves the exercise classes and never misses them. Their concerts are a joy to watch. I just can’t say enough good things about this place! And I am so relieved to know that my mother is safe. Any little details that come up are taken care of ASAP and my mother knows she has “ears” that listen to her.
I could go on and on, but if I can be of any further assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach me.

Dear AltaVita Staff and Friends,
We would like to express a heartfelt thank you for the caring and compassionate care that our mother, Joy, received during her year and a half at AltaVita Memory Care. Your patient, kind and professional staff made our mother’s time at AltaVita comfortable, secure, memorable and enjoyable.
Looking back, we feel so grateful that Joy was able to enjoy the many fun activities at AltaVita including choir/concerts, dancing, poetry, games including bocce ball, movies, art, holiday celebrations, parties, outings, and so much more. We never thought that we would find such an active, supportive and appropriate community for her vibrant spirit.
More important, we finally experienced “peace in our hearts” once our mother settled into AltaVita and connected with her new-found friends and community. At times she could sure be a handful, and you all truly accepted here for who she was, and brought out a light in her that we hadn’t seen for years.
We will always appreciate and remember the gracious and compassionate care that our mother and family received during her difficult final days.
With gratitude and love,
— Ann P., Cyndy S., Pam T., John H. and David H., Joy’s Children
I’ve worked at other facilities and AltaVita is my favorite; the center is intelligently designed, the staff is diverse, experienced, friendly and accommodating, and there is a vitality and openness to new ideas and experiences that is enlivening.

Working here at AltaVita is so fulfilling. This community offers so much to its staff and Residents both! My life is enriched by being a part of these Resident’s lives, and I hope to enrich their lives in the same way! I love the opportunity to make a difference everyday I’m here at AltaVita!

Working at AltaVita has been a great opportunity. It’s a place where you continue to educate yourself and a potential to grow, learning how to take care of our Residents with dementia can be challenging but we all come together as a team and care for them and love them just like we do our own families. The Directors and Nursing Staff and caregivers are the most caring team that you can have as well as the other staff in the different departments. I have been at Alta Vita for over three years now and enjoy coming each day to see our Residents, take care of, and love them. To me AltaVita is the best place for your loved ones who suffer with Alzheimer’s and dementia.

I’ve been in the healthcare field for 15 years working in various types of agencies, assisted living communities, and residential homes. After finding employment with AltaVita Memory Care I can truly say I’m finally at a place of work where I enjoy going to 5 days a week. I enjoy the staff, the management team, and most all the Residents. I hope to make AltaVita my last stop. Thank you AltaVita.
