  • What are the general guidelines for assisted living communities mandated by the state?

    Some of the oversight we provide is in place to keep our residents safe and to comply with regulations from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. For example, Assisted Living residents are required to eat a minimum of two meals per day in the common dining area, comply with state mandates surrounding medications, and report to their caregiver if leaving the facility. While each facility has different protocols surrounding these items, all Assisted Living facilities follow these guidelines to stay in good standing.

    Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the Assisted Living Dining Room daily.

    Yes, arrangements can be made if you are unable to eat in the dining room due to illness.
  • How often does the staff check in on me?

    Each resident receives a minimum of 5 contacts a day with Kavod Staff.
  • Will I lose my independence if I move into Assisted Living?

    Not at all! Assisted Living services are designed to help residents with Activities of Daily Living (or ADL’s), such as housekeeping, laundry, and meal preparation. Providing assistance in these areas allows our residents to be more independent and choose to spend time on activities they enjoy.
  • Do you have two bedroom apartments?

    No. Our apartments consist of studio and one bedroom units.
  • How do I apply for Medicaid assistance?

    Eligibility for Medicaid (Health First Colorado) is determined by the State of Colorado and can take 8 to 12 weeks to process. Please contact the Denver Department of Human Services online at Colorado.gov/PEAK or by phone at 1-800-221-3943 to apply for Medicaid services. Kavod is unable to lease apartments with Medicaid pending.
