Testimonials From Our Residents' Families

  • It was such a wonderful evening for everyone.  I will cherish these memories forever.  I can’t believe my mother is 100 years old – she is very strong.  I want to thank you and everyone else from Applewood who helped in this spectacular  celebration.  It meant the world to me and my mother.  The pictures are so wonderful and I will add them to my special album of memories with my mother.  Thank you so much.

  • Friends at Applewood, I wanted to say thank you so much for taking such wonderful care of my dad, Dwayne.  I still remember meeting Cheryl  for the first time and sitting on the bench to explain our family story.  I knew immediately that Applewood was the place for him.  It was a difficult transition for him and me, but I knew he was in the best possible place.  Your staff was so caring and compassionate. They treated him as though he was family. During his last few hours, Ed and Buffy went beyond any expectations . I am so thankful .  Even though her shift was over, Buffy sat with me with me until my sister got there.  That meant so much to me.  Ed was there on a moments notice.  Our family will never forget the kindness you gave to our dad and us.

  • I just wanted to thank everyone at Applewood Our House for their great service and for the loving support you gave my dad for the short time he was with you.  Everyone treated him with love and respect.  He touched many of your hearts and I really appreciate all you did. His service was wonderful. The military played taps and we received a flag.  We played Alan Jackson’s “Remember When” and “Amazing Glace”. Everyone lite a sparkler because my dad loved the 4th of July and the kids rang bells in celebration.  It was all very nice, I think he would of been proud. We will miss him dearly but he will always be in our hearts. Thank you again.   Love,

Applewood Our House - Assisted Living Colorado

Assisted living Colorado from Applewood Our House provides an enjoyable alternative way for seniors to live independently as they age. While at the same time, our residents also feel a part of a family in a safe environment. We offer individual attention and allow families to decorate their loved one’s room to give it a familiar arrangement.

Assisted Living and Dementia Care

Applewood Our House Assistant Living

Seniors are living much longer than they did in recent years. Even though they need support, many of them still want to be active. Many families cannot provide long-term care and need professional assistance.

We provide assisted living in a way that still gives seniors dignity and respect. We also help preserve as much independence as possible, while keeping our residents secure. We do everything possible to to make our houses feel like their homes.


Memory Care

It sometimes seems as if those suffering from the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia are living in their own seperate worlds. That means that our staff is always up to the task to help overcome these barriers and help our residents regain awareness to memories that is seems they have lost.

Memory care is about elderly people whose lives are suddenly characterized by a sense of emptiness, loss, and despair. It is our job to help them express those memories that are often repeated, and to help them often remember other parts of their past that they have forgotten.

We use many years of experience to help extract a wide range of positive memories from our residents. Simples objects, such as their favorite photos, personal favorite clothes, or music can help trigger positive memories.

Once that happens, the relationship between residents and our staff quickly changes. Memory care is beneficial and vital to seniors who have dementia.

Most people with dementia begin suffering short term memory loss. However, their long term memory usually remains intact. That’s why it is good to talk about their youth and other earlier times in their lives, because they will usually remember them quite vividly.

Memory care for seniors with dementia is challenging, but at the same time it is very rewarding. Our motto at Applewood Our House is “Where new memories begin.” Those memories begin the minute our residents walk into our facilities for the first time.
