Evening's Porch Assisted Living is a grand assisted living community in Bayfield, Colorado. It is within exciting Archuleta County which is part of the Centennial State.
Evening’s Porch Assisted Living is a warm, welcoming, and active senior community. Our small, 16-bed senior home offers a very personal approach to care. We nurture independence and emphasize a high quality of life in every way possible, including organic meals, therapeutic activities, and cutting edge care techniques.
The staff at Evening’s Porch is a special group. The individuals who work with our residents are genuinely engaged with the people who live here. They let our residents know there is always someone available to assist them, to listen to them, and to truly hear their needs and concerns. And with our outstanding staff retention, it’s like an extended family.
At Evening’s Porch, we understand that the loss of independence can sometimes be a powerful blow. The decision to transition to assisted living can be difficult for individuals and families. We also know that life in assisted living can be happy and fulfilling, and we work diligently to make sure our residents have every opportunity to enjoy a home-like atmosphere where they feel nurtured and respected.
We are committed to hiring the best quality staff, and we treat them well. We know that by paying a living wage, providing regular training, and offering opportunity for advancement, our staff retention is much higher than many other facilities. And when caregivers are consistent, residents feel more comfortable and confident in their surroundings.
Our residents enjoy staying busy here at our home, as well as in the community. We have daily opportunities for our residents to be involved in events like exercise, discussion groups, Bingo, crafts, and much more. Excursions to local museums, restaurants, and even the Sky Ute casino keep our residents active and engaged so they can live life to the fullest.
Many of our activities are based on request. We may go shopping, to a parade, or fishing, depending on what our residents ask to do. Our 14-passenger bus allows us to schedule outings as we wish, rather than trying to schedule public transportation. Family members are always welcome to join us at our destination or here at the facility.
