Welcome to Canyon Creek
There’s nothing more important than family. From the modest nursing home in 1958 where founders Emmet and Alice Koelsch began, up to today, it’s our family philosophy fueling our commitment to residents and staff every day. We are dedicated to providing compassion and kindness to our residents and fellow employees. Our mission is to enrich the lives of those who live and work with us by responding to their unique needs and universal desire for dignity and respect. We are mindful that each resident comes to us with an individual set of needs. For some, those needs are as simple as companionship, a social atmosphere or a few kind words throughout the day. For others, it’s assistance with the basics of daily living such as housekeeping, laundry and the like. Still others require more dedicated care including therapy services, medication management and specialized individual care.
Our trained and tenured staff is here to serve the many differing needs of our residents, promoting creative thinking and learning, with patience, kindness and, above all, compassion. The later years of life can bring many joys and many challenges. We are committed to making these precious years fulfilling and enjoyable. And we will do this through our founding principles of excellent care and service.
Our Family Will Take Care of Your Family
Canyon Creek Memory Care, part of the family-owned Koelsch Communities since 1958, is passionate about caring for our aging population.
