Memory Care

Live with dignity, respect and security.

Sunshine Gardens Country Home is a Memory Care facility with a blend of affordable luxury and personal assistance. With sixteen private resident rooms, Country Home is located fifteen minutes from downtown Durango and five minutes from Mercy Regional Medical Center. The location rests on the Florida Mesa of Colorado with expansive and beautiful mountain views, sunrises and sunsets.

Country Home offers a warm and inviting setting for seniors facing memory impairment due to accidents, strokes, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, and other dementias. With staff designated as Leaders in Dementia Care by the Alzheimer’s Association Colorado Chapter, we strive to provide a safe, home-like atmosphere with each resident receiving individual attention from our memory care dedicated team.

With an extensive service package and our open floor plan with cozy amenities, we keep life enjoyable for our residents. Because there is no cure for dementia, we strive to keep our residents clean, comfortable and happy in this thoughtful memory care environment.

Country Home does not accommodate residents who are combative or abusive, or require a lock down facility.
