We are aware that the Colorado Attorney General’s office filed criminal negligence charges against three care partners in connection with the death of a resident earlier this summer.
While we cannot share details regarding this resident’s passing, we do want you to know that we immediately reported the circumstances surrounding the resident’s passing to the appropriate regulatory agencies and launched our own internal investigation. Additionally, we have cooperated with the Colorado Attorney General’s investigation of this matter.
Our internal investigation resulted in the dismissal of two team members, who were subsequently charged by the Colorado Attorney General. The third team member is now on investigatory leave.
We are very saddened by the passing of this beloved resident, and we continue to send our sincerest sympathy to this resident’s family and friends.
At this time, we cannot make any other further comments as we focus on the support of residents, team members, and families and honor the right to privacy of all involved during this process.
We care for each other. It is one of our most deeply held values as a community, and the ideal we strive for in our daily work in creating a wonderful community where older adults share in making a home.
