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

Working with Memory Care Patient

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.

To residents, families, and employees of RCN:

An employee of RCN has recently tested positive for COVID-19. The employee showed no symptoms but went for testing out of precaution. They are in self isolation and will be retested per protocol. As of this writing, no other employees or residents are symptomatic.

Out of precaution, we will test all residents and employees this Wednesday and Thursday, September 23 and 24. The testing results are normally available within 72 hours.
Please continue to be diligent about mask wearing, whether in or out of our building.

Some have asked about indoor visitation. Jefferson County continues to report community spread that would warrant visitors to present proof of a negative test before visitation. In addition, RCN must not have an outbreak - which is two or more confirmed positive. Hopefully the one employee is an isolated case.

The stylists from PS Salon are awaiting test results. As soon as those results are back and dependent on this week’s testing results, the salon will reopen.

Thank you,
Mary Besson, ED

Thanks for the update. Stay safe, all!

Dear Residents, Families, and Employees of RCN:
As you may know, the Governor has drafted, and the CO Dept of Health has posted a draft for indoor visits in residential care facilities. Comments to the draft may be submitted by end of business today.
The guidance contains stipulations such as baseline testing of residents and employees, visitors must provide proof of a negative test within 24 hours of the visit, and limits to the degree of community spread. The indoor visits would be limited to those age 18 and older.
This guidance includes service providers such as salon professionals. They must be tested weekly along with other requirements.
We will await final guidance as I am certain there will be many comments regarding the draft.
In other news…
Please check our website and Facebook page for pictures and stories of happenings at RCN.
We held an employee appreciation party this week to say “thank you” to all our employees who have gone above and beyond not knowing how long this uncertainty will be part of their lives and the lives of our residents.
It’s nice to see so many families here visiting on the porch and as always, we appreciate your cooperation with distancing and mask wearing.
Random percentage sample testing of employees continues each week. We are always thankful to receive negative results.
Please continue to reach out to Michelle for facetime calls if you have not already.
Mary Besson, ED

I do have to admit this is a beautiful place, I love it here especially prior to the Chinese virus. It is the best assisted living facility I have ever been in. Some lovely people also.

Doesn’t sound very promising. The residents I have talked to are not encouraged. It’s been six months. We have had zero cases. Give us some freedom and personal choice. How about some outdoors activities. Co has done well and needs to open up.

We received a donation of 2000 masks made in Taiwan, by Taiwanese Chambers of Commerce of North America. A huge thank you to Christine Yamasaki, daughter of resident Yosh Nakayama for the referral! ... See MoreSee Less
