There is a wealth of research on the relationship between financial stress and how it uniquely impacts the physical and mental health of senior citizens. With the commercialization of senior care, finding an affordable, highly-individualized person-centered residence is at odds with what is increasingly becoming the institutional warehousing of seniors for profit.
Whitcomb Terrace is different; it was created as a not-for-profit entity to give our residents and their family members peace of mind about their physical and emotional wellbeing, which very much includes financial peace of mind. We understand your concerns about the costs of retirement and the need to conserve your “nest egg.” You want to outlive your resources and have something to pass on to your children, grandchildren and any charities you may support. Our virtually all-inclusive fee means you don’t have to worry about getting hit with extra charges, or “service level” fees that penalize the aging process, for the help you need to maintain your independence.
As part of Aspen Valley Hospital’s Network of Care, Whitcomb Terrace is the only not-for-profit senior living community in the Roaring Fork Valley. We benefit from many shared operating costs, and these savings are reflected in our pricing. Our high staff-to-resident ratio of caring professionals provide companionship and keep an eye out—catching the small changes—while providing the intervention to keep our residents safe. The high quality of care and reasonable pricing make Whitcomb Terrace an attractively affordable option, even when there is a chronic condition that requires long-term care to maintain independence.
