SPECIAL THANKS to our hosts of the 2020 Family Training classes:
Belleview Heights Alzheimer’s Senior Care Center – 303-690-0700
We offer our residents a new way of living in a memory home. We offer heat lamps in the rooms located near the shower, as we understand that some dementias make it hard for a person to maintain the body heat. We offer shelving units without door closer so that the person with memory loss can easily locate and identify clothing. We have placed sensors in the resident’s rooms so we know when they rise from their beds and enter the bath. This function serves two purposes; it alerts the nurse station that they are up and moving which allows them to check on the person and ensure their safety, and it allows the person to sleep all night with no disruption unless needed.
Our highly-trained staff works with residents to understand their need for normalcy and respects their need to be bathed and groomed when and how it is appropriate for the person. Activities of daily living options can be tailored to fit the person with memory loss, and how the perceive their reality. Breakfast can be attended in appropriate pajamas, as well as a cocktail for dinner if approved by a physician’s order. The attention to family member’s needs are equally embraced by the staff, to ensure that their wants and needs are met, as well as assisting them to understand the way developing education opportunities help to create peace and acceptance of the ever changing and progressive nature of memory loss.
We offer a continuum of care with our trained nursing staff and on call doctor visits, which brings peace of mind to families and residents who need extra assistance with other issues of health.
Our residents have access to a wide variety of amenities and programming options to keep them active and engaged in daily life, including arts and crafts classes, movie nights, and many chances for family and holiday celebrations. Belleview Heights Alzheimer’s Special Care Center brings together the very best Alzheimer’s care in Aurora, CO, with our Meaningful Moments® program paired with our active and engaged staff members.
On June 1, 2014, Curt and Holly Foust became the new owners of the Home Instead Senior Care in the North Denver Metro Area. Curt is a third generation Denverite who graduated from University of Colorado-Boulder with a B.S. in International Marketing (1991) and from Pepperdine University School of Law in Malibu, California (1994). For the past 20 years, he has been practicing law as corporate counsel in private practice and for two Denver-based companies. Most recently, Curt served as General Counsel and Senior Vice President of W.J. Bradley, LLC, managing six departments and providing strategic business and legal advice to senior executives and staff. Prior to W.J. Bradley, Curt served 13 years as Vice President and Assistant General Counsel for Janus Capital Group Inc., a global investment management firm focused on helping individuals achieve their financial goals.
Holly was raised on the east coast but has called Denver home for the past two decades. After graduating from The Ohio State University with a B.A. in English, she began a teaching career as a middle school English teacher in Miami, Florida and later in Littleton, Colorado. Her professional career also includes positions as both the Coalitions Director and Volunteer Coordinator for former Colorado Governor Bill Owens’ 2002 campaign where she organized and motivated a large group of volunteers and community members. Most recently, Holly has been busy raising their two young children and heading up several school-wide events.
Together, Holly and Curt share a strong desire to serve and meet the needs of a growing senior population who want to age gracefully by maintaining their dignity and independence. They have personally experienced the need for compassionate, quality in-home care with their own family members. To be part of a business that helps other families like theirs is the heart of why they are so enthusiastic about the opportunity to own and operate a business that cares for and assists with the needs of today’s seniors.
Our Retirement Campus
Springwood was founded by an Arvada businessman who wanted to give back to the community he loved. “Our original vision was a continuum of care retirement community where residents could either live independently or with as much support as they needed,” says Denver local and original developer Steve Elken.
Springwood Retirement Campus provides five senior housing options in one community. This includes 28 cottage-style homes and a 40-unit apartment complex for retirement living, 122 full-service apartments for independent living, 65 assisted living residences, and 28 private apartments in our memory care center.
Since the beginning, the founders of Springwood imagined a vibrant community where older adults could flourish. With supportive resources and engaging programs, every senior can live an active, independent life with us. With assisted living and memory care available, we provide a continuum of care for our residents as they age, so they can easily transition from one level of care to the next.
Led by Pat Gallinger, our experienced staff is committed to providing quality care and exceptional service for both our residents and their guests. From individual activity directors and resident managers to our housekeeping department and creative culinary team, we provide the best, most comprehensive care for seniors in a comfortable and welcoming setting.
