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 nursing staff are ready to help meet scheduled and unscheduled needs. Enjoy the nurturing care of a nursing home in the comfort of senior apartments.

Memory Care

If you’re caring for an elderly mother, father, husband, or wife with memory loss due to Alzheimer’s or dementia, 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 Alzheimer’s assistance 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 aging 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.

A Visit With Grandma

It was a beautiful August day. Jean Perry was anxiously awaiting the arrival of her granddaughter. At age 19, Emma was able to drive to see her grandmother in her assisted living community. Ever since she had obtained her drivers license, she would make the trip to the community every Friday after school. And now...

Brain Games

What’s going on? An elderly friend kept asking. “I am forgetful. I lost my keys. I can’t remember if I took my medications today. Is this a sign of something terrible?” If you are still at a young age, you might be thinking this sounds a lot like your life. Not a big deal. But for someone in their senior years, there is always the nagging thought that it could signal something more significant. Perhaps dementia or Alzheimer’s disease slowly catching up? It is important to have the proper health care professionals involved to ensure that nothing is missed. In the meantime, it’s important to keep mentally vital. There are so many ways to keep an engaged and active mind. Here are some activities that may keep you or a senior family member interested and mentally stimulated.

Ralston Creek Neighborhood Assisted Living & Memory Care
July 29, 2021

To all Residents, Families and Friends, and Employees of RCN: 
Updates to the mitigation guidance from CDPHE has indicated the recent emergence of the Delta variant in certain parts of Colorado warrants enhanced infection control measures to ensure resident safety.  Such measures are now being implemented for unvaccinated staff and/or residents.  
Beginning August 9, 2021, all unvaccinated or partially vaccinated employees will have to test for Covid-19 using a rapid molecular or antigen test (point of care test or POC) at the beginning of each shift.   
It takes 15 minutes to receive the results of the rapid test.  If an employee tests positive on the rapid test, they immediately need to take a PCR test (the tests we do each week for surveillance) to be sent to the state lab and leave work until those results have returned.  This same testing applies to unvaccinated or partially vaccinated residents who have left the community overnight.  
If one positive individual is identified during testing, we begin outbreak testing of every resident and employee regardless of vaccination status.  Indoor visitation must also be stopped immediately.  
Additionally, providers of health care or ancillary non-medical services for residents of the facility must provide proof of vaccination, participate in our surveillance testing, or provide a copy of a negative test in the last 7 days AND complete a rapid test prior to entering the facility.  
We have the supplies for the rapid tests and will provide more information regarding the logistics of this new testing requirement next week.    
The mask requirements have not changed in that masks are still required for all unvaccinated or partially vaccinated persons in the building.  
Please see me, call, or email with questions.  
Thank you,
Mary Besson, RCN Executive Director
