Independent Living Opening Soon
It’s official, the opening of our Colorado Springs senior living community’s Independent Living neighborhood is scheduled for mid-July. Our team is excited to welcome this new addition to our complex featuring luxury one and two bedroom apartment options as a part of our continuum of care. The 143,000+ square-foot building will feature 111 units as well as a wide variety of luxury living amenities and services.
Our goal is to ultimately create a Life in Harmony™ for seniors so that they can continue to enjoy life to the fullest, whatever their capabilities. Being able to seamlessly transition from Independent Living to Assisted or Memory Care is important to the care we provide and just one of the many ways we focus on creating a Life in Harmony™. Our Executive Director, Terry LaMantia, recently sat down with The Gazette, to share more insight into the opening and what future residents can expect.

In our assisted living neighborhood, Melody Living welcomes small pets like cats and dogs with open arms. These pets make the move into a senior living community a lot more comfortable for many residents with fur babies. Having a pet in a new environment can create a sense of peace, familiarity, and duty. Pets also are great for residents who may live alone as that little extra sense of company can make all of the difference in their day.
It’s hard to know exactly when the time is right to move into an assisted living community because everyone’s needs and circumstances are different and unique to them. However, there are a few indicators that might help you and your loved one determine when the time is right.
One factor to consider involves physical changes that become more noticeable. Does your loved one struggle to complete daily chores on their own? Are household maintenance tasks piling up and becoming more difficult to manage? Has your loved one recently experienced an injury that limits their physical ability to comfortably get around? All of these are important factors to consider when moving into an assisted living community.
