We were excited to be featured in Grand Junction’s The Business Times, on July 31, 2017. Phil Castle wrote the article Senior community combines design and technology to “elevate” assisted living. Here’s an excerpt:
Sarah Winnefeld leads an impromptu tour through the large, two-story building under construction near where Horizon Drive slants into Seventh Street in Grand Junction.
As workers around her hang drywall and paint, Winnefeld walks and talks, pointing out sights along the way. There’s the large reception area at the entrance and nearby dining and community rooms. Hallways lead to apartments with high ceilings that create a sense of spaciousness. Upstairs, more one- and two-bedroom apartments come in an assortment of sizes and layouts. But there are other amenities as well, among them a fitness center, conference room and community room. That’s not to mention the courtyard around which the building wraps.
Winnefeld said it takes a bit of imagination to envision what the completed building will look like, but less as work progresses on Cappella of Grand Junction, an assisted living and memory support facility scheduled to open near the end of September.
Winnefeld, executive director of Cappella, said she’s excited about the building, but even more so about the services and resources that will be offered there and, ultimately, the differences it all will make in the lives of residents. “It’s going to be a beautiful facility, but it’s more about the passion and culture.”
