    Skyline Ridge Nursing and Rehabilitation Center has been voted the "Best of the Best" Nursing Facility in Fremont County for 2005, 2007 and 2008 and was a recent recipient of the Step 1 Quality Care Award from the American Healthcare Association for 2008!

    Located next to the hogbacks of Canon City, Skyline Ridge Nursing has been labeled the best kept secret of Canon City. We are an 85-bed 24-hour skilled nursing facility along with a 20-bed Secure Unit for Alzheimer's residents. Our Department Heads have a combined for 150 years of experience including our Director of Nursing who started out as a CNA and worked her way up the corporate ladder and been here almost 30 years! Also, our Dietary Manager recently graduated from culinary arts school and is officially a full service chef.

    Skyline Ridge Nursing has been considered a ‘stepping stone’ facility. This means people use our services if they need to go to the hospital for a surgery and require therapies, people come to Skyline to get those therapies (on-site physical, occupational and speech) to get their strength up so they can safely function at home.

    On November 1, 2005, Skyline Ridge Nursing stepped away from the traditional nursing home setting and started the Culture Change program. Five meals a day are provided from 7am to 6:30pm starting with a Continental Breakfast which is generally a pastry some with juice or coffee and ending with a Nightcap snack which is generally a sandwich or some fresh bread from our bread machines located throughout the facility. Psychologists say the smell of fresh bread (or any baked good) reminds people of home and this is our residents’ home no matter how long of a stay they have. We provide Candlelight Suppers the third Tuesday of each month with the meal chosen by the residents during Resident’s Council at the beginning of the month. Also, we have flexible arising times giving the resident the choice of when they want to wake up. We do not turn on the overhead lights or do any overhead paging until 9am giving the residents the option to sleep in. Also, we give the residents the choice of when they want to take their medications, therapies and bath/shower that fits their schedule and choice. Lastly, our activities department has person-centered activities based on their individual choices and interests.

    Come take a tour and let me show you Culture Change!
