As we grow older, our needs naturally begin to change. Basic tasks and maintenance around the home can start to become more and more difficult, and more dangerous for us to do. Thankfully, there are plenty of options available to seniors living in the Parker, Colorado area.
Advantages of a Continuing Care Community
The Lakewood Continuing Care Center offers local seniors independent living options that allow them to stay as active as they always have been, while also providing a multitude of activities curated especially for them and their age group. We are not a retirement home, but rather, a specialized continuing care facility that allows its residents to seamlessly transition within our community as they transition through life.The Lakewood Continuing Care Center offers local seniors independent living options that allow them to stay as active as they always have been, while also providing a multitude of activities curated especially for them and their age group.

Fun, Engaging Activities
By participating in our programs, residents can find an enhanced sense of joy and purpose in their day-to-day life. There have been several separate studies conducted to prove that regularly engaging in various activities can help to improve both physical and mental function in aging adults. This is achieved by combining exercise, social interaction, and mental stimulation together in even the simplest of actions.
At Lakewood Continuing Care, some of the services we offer to residents include:
- Outdoor walks
- Screenings of classic movies
- Multiple types of enjoyable therapies such as music therapy, art therapy, and pet therapy
- Bingo, puzzles, and other table games
- A consistent schedule of show times each day for programs like Wheel of Fortune and Trading Spaces
- Age-appropriate exercises that may be performed while sitting
- Bull’s eye bag toss games
- Environment-enriching additions such as classical music and aromatherapy
We Have Everything You Need
This kind of community is meant to address all the needs of an individual during the later years of their life. Many of our residents are able to live independently in their own apartments, while others require partial or complete assistance from our continuing care specialists.
Rather than needing to relocate to a variety of different facilities throughout their elder years, our residents are able to continue living in the same continuing care community. This provides an immeasurable amount of emotional comfort, as residents are able to remain in the same environment surrounded by familiar faces and friends. Because of this, we often recommend that our continuing care community members begin their stay with us when they are generally healthy so that they are able to take full advantage of all the incredible benefits our continuing care facility has to offer.
Providing As Much Independence As Possible
Our continuing care providers are always focused on encouraging all residents to be as engaged and active as possible. Daily activities are a vital component of sustaining and promoting physical and mental health, which is why our continuing care community provides a variety of different programs for residents to participate in.
We constantly strive to increase the level of independence for each and every one of our residents. Even if individuals are not able to complete all tasks on their own, our dedicated continuing care providers are always available to offer their support in making everyday activities possible for our community members.
Safe and Secure Continuing Care Facilities
Personal safety is a major concern for many of the older individuals we work with here at Lakewood. It is often very difficult for people to give up certain activities in their life, primarily because they feel it would be like also giving up a piece of their independence. However, at a certain point individuals need to realize that their bodies are simply no longer able to handle specific situations without putting themselves in harm’s way.
Our entire continuing care facility is equipped to assist individuals with a range of abilities and personal needs. We promote the formation and maintenance of a comforting environment that limits any potential for injury that may be incurred by one of our residents. This not only helps to provide you with peace of mind but can also offer the same kind of comfort to your family and other loved ones.
Requesting Additional Continuing Care Community Information
There are, of course, a variety of different details that our continuing care managers will need to discuss with you and your loved ones prior to joining our continuing care community. No matter what questions you have, we are here to answer them to the absolute best of our abilities.
