This fall, a momentous occasion was celebrated throughout Eagle County: the opening of an extended care community called Castle Peak, owned by the nonprofit Augustana Care. The new care community will serve approximately 110 people annually through assisted living, memory care, rehabilitation and skilled nursing. Augustana Care’s Castle Peak is here because generous donors joined Eagle County and Augustana Care to make it possible.
Without Augustana Care’s Castle Peak, older adults and others in need of extended care would have to leave Eagle County, which would lose their talents, generosity and insights. An economic loss of approximately $43 million would also occur if suitable care was not available.
Those losses have now been averted with the opening of Augustana Care’s Castle Peak. Family members tell us they feel Castle Peak is an incredible gift to the community. They are impressed by the dedication of staff members and grateful their loved ones can receive the care they need in our beautiful valley.
To help ensure Augustana Care’s Castle Peak gets off to a strong start, financial support is needed and Colorado Gives provides an excellent opportunity to provide that support.
As new staff members arrive at Augustana Care’s Castle Peak community, they need training and support to provide the quality care local residents deserve and expect. Specialized training for memory care is also needed to help those with conditions like Alzheimer’s. In addition, donations help provide essential programs and services that enhance the quality of residents’ lives.
Colorado Gives Day is December 6, but you can schedule your donation as early as November 1. To learn more about how you can support Augustana Care’s Castle Peak community, visit: www.coloradogives.org/augustanacare.
