Four courts were built to accommodate a total of 64 residents, each with its own dining area, activities area, and sun room, with resident rooms lining the open activity areas. The center backs up to Cheyenne Mountain and has beautiful walking paths and ponds offering a tranquil environment for the residents. In 2009, Namaste Alzheimer’s Center served 84 residents and maintains a high occupancy rate.
