Gunnison Valley Health Senior Care Center

Making huge strides in the health and wellness of the senior community in Colorado's Gunnison Valley and beyond.

The Senior Care Center at Gunnison Valley Health is a new 52,000-square-foot building offering a modern and “social experience” for up to 50 individuals in need of assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing. The center was planned to embrace the “neighborhood” concept trending in the senior living industry. This philosophy emphasizes the creation of “neighborhoods” where 15-18 people are organized together to create a community-like setting. Almost every resident has a private room oriented around a common area for dining, living, and gatherings. The nurse stations were carefully integrated into the common area to create a better synergy between staff and residents. Lastly, the kitchen was designed to become the central hub for activity while giving access to caregivers.

The site is organized to provide each “neighborhood” a connection to the campus commons space. This area contains the core amenities for the residents, including physical therapy, a salon, activity rooms, and administrative services. The intent of this area is to provide a destination for residents to leave their “neighborhood” and have an “outing” within the community.
