The Retreat at Harbor Cove and The Retreat at Palisade are our two Grand Junction, Colorado assisted living facilities. We also own the Retreat at Highlands, which offers assisted living in Wheat Ridge, Colorado.
Assisted living provides personal care support services such as meals, medication management, help in bathing and dressing, personal hygiene assistance, and even help with managing one's finances. What assisted living is not is a nursing home or locked-down facility. Our residents are free to come and go as they choose, and we encourage visits from family and friends. Many of our residents lead independent lives and need only minor assistance in day-to-day living, while many need an additional level of care. What all of our residents have in common is the need for housing in an environment that is caring, safe, and respectful.
Our residents come from all walks of life and backgrounds. All require unique levels of assistance and that is where our personalized care plans come into play. In this way we make senior living a comfortable experience for all. If you have questions about assisted senior living and what we offer at the retreats, please do not hesitate to contact us!
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can I move in right away? A: There is a lot of information that we need provided to us or gathered by us before we can allow a new resident to move in. This process may take several weeks or a little as a few days depending on cooperation from you and communication from relevant physicians. Q: Do you provide transportation to and from medical appointments? A: In general, it is not within our scope of services to transport residents to appointments. However, for private-pay residents, we will make an effort to accommodate such requests. Medicaid residents can often qualify for transportation benefits through the state. Q: Do you provide basic furniture or televisions? Cable? Phone? A: For Medicaid residents, we are required to provide a standard twin-sized bed and a dresser. The Retreats do not furnish television sets, but we do provide a basic cable package. There is a phone in the lobby of each house for resident use. Private phones and upgraded cable must be provided at the resident’s expense. Q: Do you provide move-in / move-out services? A: No. It is the responsibility of the resident to arrange for personal belongings to be moved on or off the premises. Q: Can I have a mini-fridge, microwave, or coffee pot in my room? A: Yes, provided the resident demonstrates the ability to operate such items safely. Keep in mind that we provide three meals a day, snacks, and drinks in our dining areas and it is our preference that residents do not cook or eat in their rooms. Q: Do The Retreats provide room service for meals? A: As a general policy we do not deliver meals to individual rooms. However, if a resident is temporarily ill or otherwise confined to their room, then we can accommodate. Q: Do The Retreats allow pets? A: All pets will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. We, however, discourage the bringing of pets for sanitary and health reasons. Q: Will the caregivers inject insulin or other medications? A: No. Our caregivers cannot directly inject with needles or prick skin to check blood sugar levels. Q: How many staff do you have on hand at night? A: At any time, 24/7, there will always be an awake, certified staff member on duty. The Retreats employs QMAP personnel but does not employ nurses or doctors. Q: What is the procedure / policy for providing medication and Depends? A: Please bring all medication currently in your possession upon move-in. Going forward, we can have your medication delivered to The Retreats and manage refills, though we do not cover the cost of any medication. The Retreats does not purchase Depends for residents, though they are often donated to us and we will provide them when able.
