Here at Rosemark at Mayfair Park, we make a habit of celebrating the grandparents in our assisted living community every day of the week. We celebrated National Assisted Living Week and Grandparents’ Day, and were thrilled to share a week full of celebrations with the community.
If you were here to celebrate you will have enjoyed a variety of great events, From a performance by the Ballet Melange Dance Troupe to pizza in the parking lot, our events had something for folks and families of all kinds. Learn more and check out our schedule of events that we did below:

Rosemark At Mayfair Park, the best in assisted living Denver, has a host of events leading up to Grandparents Day on September 8th. We will spend the week prior offering great events to engage in National Assisted Living Week! Check out our great lineup below:
“Trey is currently off tour and spending time in Colorado and began brainstorming that he would like to do a special fun performance for seniors and a friend of his referred us to you. Growing up in a family that was centered around retirement homes, Trey always wanted to celebrate institutions like the ones he grew up around as well as encourage his fans around the world to do the same. He asked all of us to do some research and find a special place to consider so we did more research, liked what we saw and presented you to Trey (He had an opportunity to look at your website) and he absolutely loved what he saw and asked me to reach out this afternoon to see you would be interested in having him. I think the residents would be extremely enthusiastic about the performance.”
All our life we must learn how to live, says a Latin proverb. However, sometimes it is hard to know how to do this and to accomplish everything you have to do. For seniors it is all the more difficult, as physical and mental functioning begins to decrease.
Simplify your living environment. It will come a time when useless things may become too much for you to take care of.
Organize your remaining things, use labels and establish precise locations for important documents and emergency supplies
Avoid keeping things you do not really need. We all have objects with sentimental value, but when your gather everything and throw away nothing, it is clear that you have developed a habit that will not help you stay organized at all. Besides, a well-organized and decluttered living space is also very important for your personal safety.
Keep cleaning your house. Do not hide under the excuse that no one visits you anyway. Cleaning is important both hygienically and mentally, as it favors better organization. Cleaning may be exhausting, but take your time; there`s no deadline!
Plan to clean your medicine cabinet, on a regular basis, to ensure that no medication is expired.
