Places to Age News - November 28, 2023

We have very good news to share!


People agree that Chaffee County needs much better housing options for the older adults in our community who need caregiving services. In support of this goal, Places to Age is being given a generous donation of a 10-acre parcel near Salida. The land is located between CR-120 and CR-140 and is relatively close to downtown and the hospital. This 10-acre parcel is being donated to support seniors and senior housing in our community.


Our goal is to eventually build senior housing with a rich array of caregiving services or potentially an Assisted Living and Memory Care facility on this 10-acre parcel. However, before Places to Age can plan any development for seniors, we will need to have this land annexed into the City of Salida.


Currently, we need to raise approximately $15,000 for our portion of the annexation costs. The overall annexation costs will include the pre-engineering, infrastructure planning, city annexation fees, associated legal fees, etc. Every donation helps and your gift is tax-deductible through the Chaffee County Community Foundation as our fiscal sponsor - PLEASE DONATE NOW


If you have additional questions about Places to Age or our forward plans, please email at or call us directly at 719.209.7118


Thank you from the Places to Age Board of Directors: Marilyn Bouldin, Cheryl Brown-Kovacic, Judy Hoch, Lydia Segal, Jeff Eaton, Wendell Pryor, Dee Dubin, Andi Bruno
