Casey’s Pond, a non-profit senior living community, managed by Cappella Living Solutions, embedded in the heart of Steamboat, exudes energy, genuine warmth, and a nurturing atmosphere. Recently, a spotlight was shone on this exceptional community as it was featured in the Steamboat Pilot & Today. The local news media of Steamboat Springs had an enriching conversation with our new Executive Director Jeanine Woosley, to discuss the transformative changes taking place within our continuing care community. With a focus on occupancy growth, the addition of new dedicated staff members, and the fluidity provided within skilled nursing to provide rehabilitative and short-term stays.
Casey’s Pond, alongside its 125 residents, anticipates commemorating its 10th-year anniversary in October, with an array of engaging and fun activities. Committed to continually elevating the standard for senior living, taking great pride in its achievements, and embracing a promising and bright future ahead.
At the entrance to Casey’s Pond nonprofit senior living community, a resident is tending to the flower beds and another resident just finished a walk with her Australian shepherd. Inside the bistro, both independent and assisted living residents are talking and having lunch in groups of three or four, eating dishes such as a citrus salad with grilled salmon. Other residents are sitting outside in the sunshine on the patio by the namesake pond.
An overall boost of fresh energy is apparent this summer at Casey’s Pond at the corner of South Lincoln Avenue and Walton Creek Road in Steamboat Springs. “There is an energy and enthusiasm that we haven’t had in a long time, primarily because of the pandemic,” said Chuck Parsons, chairman of the board of directors. “Those were tough years for all of us.”
That energy is welcomed by residents and staff after the struggles and deaths during the COVID-19 pandemic. Fresh highlights for Casey’s Pond this year include a new Executive Director, Director of Nursing, Community Life Director, and integrated living policy for memory care residents and an influx of independent living residents.
