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 as well as on a case by case needs basis. For additional information, please see our Care Coordinator Brochure.
We offer a Kosher-style menu, which includes both dairy and meat days, with an option for Kosher meals, 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 providing an opportunity 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 servied on Sunday.
The menu features a main entrée with several alternate choices that are available each day. 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 we can meet special dietary needs.
The dining program is mandatory for residents for several reasons. 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 dietician creating the menu offerings, specialty computer programs are used to check the nutritional value of each meal. The communal dining helps our residents to get to know each other and facilitates a welcoming social environment for our residents.
Our wide array of activities and events provide many opportunities for you to get to know your neighbors and to pursue your individual interests.
Limited parking is available onsite for eligible residents who own a vehicle. Parking spaces are available on a first come, first served basis.

Kavod also maintains eight computers and a large print reader for resident use. The computers are available 24/7!

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! Additionally, we are well known by local taxi companies and handicap or senior transportation companies.
