Assisted Living

Assisted Living at Ralston Creek Neighborhood is designed for seniors who wish to maintain their independent lifestyle, but may need some additional assistance.

Professional, trained and certified staff are available to meet scheduled and unscheduled needs.

Memory Care

If you’re caring for a mother, father, husband, or wife with memory loss, you’ve probably noticed that their personality changes day to day, hour to hour, or even minute to minute. We don’t believe in “good days” or “bad days” when it comes to caring for those with memory loss. Our Memory Care program focuses on meeting a person where they are intellectually and emotionally at each point throughout the day.

Respite Care

For a lot of caregivers, taking care of their mom and dad is a full-time job. The idea of going out of town for a weekend or an unexpected short-term change in care needs, like doctor’s orders after being discharged from the hospital, are serious stressors for caregivers who already feel worn thin. If you’re a caregiver who needs some extra help for a few weeks or days, respite care might be the perfect fit.

Thank you to the Greatest Generation for all of your sacrifices; we are beyond grateful.D Day Eve, 75 years ago tonight.

Tonight, as you lay in bed recalling the events of the day, the wins and the losses and wonder what tomorrow will bring and as you drift into that place between here and there, let yourself imagine it is 75 years ago tonight. It is the evening of June 5th, 1944 and you are aboard one of 5,000 ships crossing the English Channel bound for a 6:30am invasion of Normandy. Soon you will be part of one of the largest invasion forces in history, and you will never be the same.

What you will see in the morning will haunt your dreams as you re-live night, after night, the chaos and carnage of the D Day landings at Normandy. All night you waited aboard ships in the English Channel, unable to sleep, filled with nervous anxiety as you prepared for the worst, with no idea how bad the worst would truly be. In the morning, as your LST finally makes its move for the shore, the German assault on the landing craft begins and it is likely you will see the first of your unit killed before you even get off the craft. Those Americans that were killed in action numbered 2499, lost before they got off the landing craft, drowned under the weight of their own equipment, others before they cleared the beaches.

June 6, 2019, is the 75th anniversary of the D Day invasion at Normandy. At least 67 Colorado veterans were part of the invasion and we know of at least 10 who were killed that morning. When you're at the Colorado Freedom Memorial look for Leslie Riley who jumped with the 101st Airborne as part of the 1am drop behind enemy lines and may have been the first Colorado veteran killed in action on D Day. Bless them all.

Here are those we have confirmed died on D Day from Colorado...
