Surviving the Colorado Floods: Frasier Meadows Retirement Community Report

For a number of years, I have taken on the interesting task of researching resident rights and financing or governance  issues for  "Continuing Care Retirement Communities" or CCRCs, an important part of the network of senior living options in the U.S.  One of the many strengths of CCRCs is the way residents and administrators pull together to respond to a crisis or handle a challenge. 

Frasier Meadow Retirement Community, a CCRC in Boulder, was hit hard by the recent devastating flooding in Colorado.  The Assisted Living area was severely damaged, requiring relocation of AL residents. The good news is that the relocations were accomplished safely, and the hard work of clean-up and reorganization has begun.  Regular updates on the Frasier website and social media connections have helped to keep families and friends up-to-date. 

Hat Tip to Walt Boyer, board member at the National Continuing Care Resident's Association or NaCCRA, for information on Frasier's early recovery efforts.
