Senior-living facility in Fort Collins to celebrate expansion

FORT COLLINS — Sterling House and Clare Bridge Crossings, a senior-living facility in Fort Collins that serves people with Alzheimer’s disease, has completed construction on 41 new apartments and renovations to existing units, and will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony Jan. 15 to celebrate the $9 million year-long effort.

Twenty-four apartments and more employees have been added to Clare Bridge Crossings, where the staff is using a new program designed to slow Alzheimer’s progression. The early stage dementia-care program was developed from research that showed consistent mental, physical and social engagement can delay the advance of Alzheimer’s. Clare Bridge now has 56 units.

Seventeen new apartments have been added to Sterling House, which cares for people who need a helping hand with bathing, dressing, mobility, dining and other activities of daily life. Sterling House now has 67 apartments.
