Rocky Mountain Assisted Living founder David Lewis is a compassionate visionary. With decades of experience in the home care field, David moved to Colorado from Southern California in 2007 and recognized the need for a different senior care model in the Denver area.
David spent time listening to the concerns, needs, and desires of seniors and their adult children. He found a common theme echoing among them: seniors wanted to remain home and maintain their independence and autonomy, yet they required extensive assistance with activities of daily living and 24-hour supervision. Adding to the challenge of this balance were the exorbitant costs of hiring an in-home care provider—something that many families who David met with simply could not afford.
Drawing from a childhood example that had made a significant impression on him, David set out to create a care model inspired by the experience of his late grandmother, Jessie. Jessie spent 9 years of her life in a small board and care home in Thousand Oaks, California, where she received personalized care in an intimate home-like setting. Her meals where home cooked, the care staff was attentive and, most importantly, she was happy.
David determined this small home-like setting was the next best thing for seniors needing 24-hour care, outside a nursing home or medical facility. This is when Rocky Mountain Assisted Living was created—a community of 10-16 bed residential style care homes that offers services and amenities found in much larger corporate companies, but provided by a family owned and operated business, cutting out constant management turnover and lack of personal connection.
David was grateful that his grandmother, Jessie, had a place to call home where she received wonderful care. He and the rest of our team at Rocky Mountain Assisted Living are proud to provide the same level of quality care and attention to your loved one.
