My father, Robert R. Hilger, and my mom, Jackie Hilger built their first assisted living home in 1990. This home was a tribute to Elsie Marie Hilger, my dad’s mother, who passed away from dementia several years prior to the opening. After my grandmother developed Alzheimer’s disease, her memory impairment left family members bewildered and with feelings of hopelessness, which are common feelings for anyone experiencing this with a family member. We would often visit my grandmother in an environment that seemed sterile, and felt institutionalized. Many years ago this was unfortunately the norm and thankfully times are continuing to change for the positive. My parents were called to open a home that emulated warmth, acceptance, compassion, teamwork, joy and laughter. It was the beginning for all of us and it was many years ago. Looking back it is hard to fathom that was nearly 30 years ago! If you are ever in the area come visit us at Sunshine Gardens West Sunshine Court Durango, Co 81301
Moving forward our family eventually moved to Durango, Colorado and today our senior campus is nested in the beautiful San Juan Mountains. We offer a continuum of care concept so that seniors can age in place yet move to the appropriate area when more assistance is needed. We also have a home care service within our company to accommodate seniors who wish to remain at home. The extension and success of our home care business in Colorado is what prompted us to expand to the greater Los Angeles area.
