March 2016

March, March, March!

Spring is coming and the cold is fading! Both CCAL Staff and residents are indeed thankful for that. We are ready to venture outside more, plant some seedlings, take some day trips together and enjoy the sunshine!

We are offering some fun events for our residents and welcoming some great entertainers to our homes this month.
March itself is a wonderful month. It is the end of the first quarter of a new year, it heralds the change in season and holds many fun, special holidays such as Easter and St. Patrick’s Day!
We look forward to the coming months, continuing in our efforts to enrich our residents’ lives as well as help educate our staff, families and our communities. We enjoy working with volunteers who also endeavor to provide the best possible atmosphere in each of our homes.Remember you can stay current with the latest CCAL news by following us on Facebook.

March Spotlight: We are a Colorado Non-Profit

You may not know this, but Castle Country Assisted Living is a non-profit organization. By definition non-profit means: Not existing or done for the purpose of making a profit.

If we were to take that definition at face value, some people might think it means we budget only for day to day expenses to care for our residents. While that is essentially true, there is a caveat to it. In order to be a successful, dependable organization that will exist for many more years, we must plan for the future of our residents and staff. We have to plan ahead for building maintenance and repairs, increases in wages, ongoing training and benefits for our employees, as well as expenses outside of our control such as rising utility costs and increased expenditures related to changes in state and federal regulations.

Non-profit also means that any additional income gets put right back into the company. These monies are used for the repair and updating of our homes, for the services and entertainment we provide for our residents, as well as the training, benefits and pay for our staff. Our organization is run by a volunteer board of community minded professionals who are sharing their expertise with us. We are a local company that employs local people to help serve our homes. It is a delicate balance to keep the service for our residents affordable while maintaining their quality of life and environment at a high standard.

At the heart of the matter is that Castle Country was started for a very simple reason. We came into existence because there was a need for assisted living at a time when there were none in Douglas County. The founders of this organization felt called to meet that need. They made the company a non-profit 501-C3. This means that this company belongs to no one person. We belong to the community. The founders simply wanted to provide an affordable home-like place for the older people in the area, and allow them to age in place within their own community. We have now grown to three locations, two in Castle Rock and one in Parker. We employ close to 50 Colorado residents and house nearly 60 people between our three homes. Castle Country Assisted Living is a place where our caregivers and can share their time, hearts and lives with the people who come to live here. That is the vision and mission of our non-profit.We are here because we care! We enjoy what we do! We are not ‘in it for the money’ but, because everything takes money, we will be doing some fundraising this year. Please be on the lookout for some special invitations and events that we hope will help us with our mission and allow us to contribute even more to our residents and provide even more support to the families that are part of our homes. We encourage you to learn more about our company and invite you to call or visit our website (www.castlecountryassistedliving.org) for more information. Better yet, volunteer at one of our homes!
