June 2021 News from The Lodge at Grand Junction
June 4, 2021
Summer is just around the corner, meaning barbecues, picnics, and all the outdoor activities we love. This month, I’m getting back to doing something I love—cycling! On June 13, I’ll take part in this year’s Ride to End ALZ event in Fort Collins. Every dollar raised from this one-day biking event goes toward the Alzheimer’s Association’s efforts to discover methods of treatment and prevention for Alzheimer’s and other dementias. While the pandemic curtailed my training, my goal is to log 50 miles in honor of The Lodge at Grand Junction. Thank you for cheering me on! I hope you’ll also consider cheering on our community and nominating us for best Assisted Living in the Best of the West contest. Help us make it to the next round and receive the recognition our residents, families and team members deserve.
Meet Life Enrichment Director Caitlyn Lee
Please say hello to Caitlyn Lee, our new Life Enrichment Director. Caitlyn began volunteering at a young age, singing and performing at senior living communities. She went on to work (and sing) as an activity assistant before moving to Colorado in 2015 to become a Life Enrichment Director. “Enriching the lives of seniors has always been my passion,” said Caitlyn. “Growing up next door to my grandparents I learned valuable life lessons and was loved unconditionally. My experiences with them inspired me to share those feelings with other seniors.”
Save on Rent with Aid and Attendance Benefits
The Lodge at Grand Junction is actively encouraging retired veterans and their surviving spouses to apply for the Veterans Administration’s Aid and Attendance benefits.

Check out our latest blog to learn more about Aid and Attendance benefits and find out if you qualify.
