Let us save one for you!
We believe, that to enjoy a good life, the human needs of security, significance and community must be met. At The Aspen, we seek to provide each of our residents with the freedom from danger, fear and anxiety; to ensure each of our residents feels their own intrinsic worth and importance; and to provide a place of togetherness and warmth where our residents belong. Everything we do is focused on meeting these needs for our residents.
We provide a comfortable and safe environment for our residents. We take away the fear and anxiety of not being able to accomplish some of the tasks of daily life like cooking, cleaning, laundry, bathing, remembering medications, etc. However, when safety (e.g. using a walker) conflicts with independence, we will provide counsel and let the resident make the decision they feel is right for them. This is your home, not ours, and we are here to assist when asked.
"We take away the fear and anxiety of not being able to accomplish some of the tasks of daily life."
"We believe our significance comes from our sense of importance, our achievements, the respect we are granted."
We believe each of our resident’s lives should have meaning and significance. We are not providing a place where we intend to “warehouse and entertain.” We believe our significance comes from our sense of importance, our achievements, the respect we are granted, feelings of being special, wanted and needed and that each of us is unique. We will strive to foster these feelings in our residents in everything we do; from the simple everyday interactions to special opportunities to explore passions.
We intend for our residents to engage in the community of The Aspen. We believe that to get the most out of life, our residents will be out in our beautiful common areas and engaged with each other and with us. There, we can cultivate a feeling of togetherness, unity, warmth, and love.
This extends to the broader communities in which we are located. We want to make connections in the community not only for the benefit of the residents, but also for the difference and positive impact our residents can make.

"From the time of our childhood and adolescence, we seek independence... Residents can make choices for themselves."
We all cherish our independence. From the time of our childhood and adolescence, we seek independence. While our residents have come to us for some assistance in their daily lives, we don’t believe they need to or should give up their individuality and independence. Residents can make choices for themselves. When they go to bed, when they get up, when they eat, what they eat are examples of the choices our residents make. We want to conform to your desires not ask you to conform to an institutional schedule. This is your home after all.
Engagement, Growth, & Contribution
We want our residents to continue to have new experiences where they may feel challenged and excited. We want to provide opportunities for our residents to continue to learn and grow.
We believe the observation of Leslie Wall is what our residents desire. We strive to provide these opportunities in the everyday lives of our residents as well as providing special opportunities to contribute.
"Food is one of the most important parts of living a good life."
We all look forward to meals and food is one of the most important parts of living a good life. In food, we can find excitement and adventure as well as a sense of well-being and comfort. We provide not only exciting, chef-designed cuisine but also simply good food that is comforting and pleasing. Balancing these options will be a resident choice meeting the needs and desires of each individual.
