When looking for the right retirement community, pricing is one of the biggest factors for most people. When looking at the overall fees for a community, you want to be sure you get what you pay for and don’t end up with any hidden fees.
Here at our Colorado Springs assisted living and memory care facility, we value Financial Wellness as one of the 8 Dimensions of Wellness that we implement into our community’s philosophy of care. Melody Living strives to create ease with one simple monthly service fee and care levels that ensure residents are only paying for the services they need or want.
Gardening to some may seem like a lost art form, or even something that has long since phased out of the modern list of popular hobbies. For those that have kept their love for gardening alive or want to try it out for the first time, living arrangements may make it difficult or near impossible to take part in this outdoor pastime.
Gardening has a multitude of benefits for the earth as well as the gardener, such as increasing physical activity, creating a more positive environment, and bettering one’s mental health.
KKTV sat down with our Memory Care Director, Carrie Richards, to talk about the best choices for memory care in Colorado Springs. Carrie has worked in memory care her entire career and has chosen to put her skills to good use with Melody Living’s Colorado Springs retirement community.
One of the biggest assets that Melody Living memory care utilizes, is our partnership with Paxxon Healthcare Services. Paxxon Provides on-site occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy. By providing on-site care, Paxxon has the ability to evaluate residents at any point so that concerns can be quickly and efficiently addressed to ensure quality health and effective care for residents.
Melody Living’s June Brunch & Bingo was a huge hit in our independent living community! We were so excited to bring in more than 80 people to enjoy a few rounds of Bingo with amazing prizes and a delicious brunch made by our in-house gourmet chef.
Each month, we work to put on events such as our Brunch & Bingo to foster wellness in our community. Melody Living focuses on the 8 Dimensions of Wellness, and events such as this help nourish our residents’ Social and Emotional Wellness with fun interactive games and some friendly competition.
Recently, Melody Living’s independent living community welcomed retired NASA astronaut, James F. Reilly, to share his story and talk about all things space. James had a distinguished 13-year career where he flew three spaceflight missions and conducted five spacewalks which totaled more than 856 hours in space.
He was excited to share his experience with our Colorado Springs senior living community during his talk here and we loved welcoming others from the local community as our special guests.
