Kavod Senior Living has three full-time Resident Care Coordinators who act to empower residents to live independently for as long as possible. Resident Care Coordinators provide assistance with signing up for government programs and benefits such as Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, community resources and homemaker services.
Our Resident Care Coordinators also act as a liaison with family members, as well as outside agencies such as hospitals, nursing homes, or case managers to ensure residents have adequate support in their lives to meet their social, psychological and physical needs. Additionally, they provide educational and support groups on issues related to aging. Resident Care Coordinators meet with residents regularly. For additional information, please see our Care Coordinator Brochure.
We offer a Kosher-style menu, which includes both dairy and meat days. Kosher meals are available upon request. Our residents feel that participating in the food program is a very special part of their living experience at Kavod. It is a welcomed time to meet neighbors and create new friendships in a social atmosphere.
The Kavod Dining Program serves dinner for residents Monday through Friday in the main dining room beginning at 4 pm. A brunch is served on Sunday.
The menu features a main entrée with several alternate choices. The main dishes, soups, desserts, breads, and rolls are prepared fresh daily by our chefs and bakers. Holidays, as well as monthly birthday parties, are celebrated with special menus in our dining room. A registered dietitian ensures special dietary needs are met.
The dining program is mandatory for residents. We believe that good nutrition is the basis for healthy living and aging. The best way to ensure that our residents are eating well is to provide balanced meals. In addition to a registered dietitian creating the menu offerings, specialty computer programs are used to check the nutritional value of each meal. The dining rooms brings together our residents and facilitates a welcoming social environment.
Our wide array of activities, events and trips provide many opportunities to pursue interests.
Reserved limited parking is available onsite for eligible residents. On street parking spaces are available on a first come, first served basis.
Our robust activities calendar is open to residents and the larger community. Most activities are free at a small cost. From social events and exercise classes, to cultural opportunities and educational seminars, the many interesting programs in our Academy of Life Long Learning allow our residents to find meaningful, fun, stimulating ways to enhance their days.

Kavod has over 30 raised gardening beds for residents to enjoy. The Gardening Club is one of our most popular clubs. In addition to the beds, the Gardening Club has annual celebrations, potlucks and educational presentations.
Kavod also maintains eight computers and a large print reader for resident use. The computers are available 24/7! Residents may set up their own email accounts with full access to broadband and do not need to own a computer. The computers are available for email, playing games, or to practice new computer skills. Assistance is available to residents by Kavod IT Support.
Kavod has two vans that provide weekly shopping trips (for a small fee) to the various supermarkets in the area. Our vans also provide transportation for our many trips to the theater, restaurants, concerts, the mountains, or our many other activities outside of the Kavod community. The Cherry Creek campus is located on two bus lines that both stop in front of our buildings, making public transportation an easy option!
