After many years of permitting and construction, Sopris Lodge is now fully operational with the completion of 24 memory care and 23 assisted living apartments. The facility enjoyed a soft opening last summer with one building consisting of 27 independent living apartments and associated amenities.

Altogether, the campus includes a greenhouse for green thumbs, a therapeutic hot tub, exercise room, art room and even a theater with weekly movie screenings for residents. Among the most lauded benefits for residents is the culinary excellence of chef Brett Allais.
