Over the past several years the community has addressed our infrastructure needs for children, families, health care, education, sports and the arts. The last remaining major infrastructure need in the Wood River Valley is to provide for the long-term care of our seniors.
Croy Canyon Ranch will be a special place – vibrant and active. You will see and feel the difference just walking through the doors. It will be a warm, loving home that will be welcoming and comfortable for residents and their families. Although it is not our dream to grow old and move into a senior “care facility,” we know we want Croy Canyon Ranch to be here for all of us, just in case.
And so it is with many people in our community. Each of us has a need, or a potential need for the type of care that Croy Canyon Ranch will offer when it replaces the compassionate long-term skilled nursing care Blaine Manor has provided for more than 27 years. We want to have the best for ourselves and for everyone for whom we care about and love. We want the best care in the best facility.
We believe that it is critical we have quality comprehensive senior care services close at hand. Today, we do not have a continuing care retirement community in the Wood River Valley that provides assisted living and independent living residences, as well as skilled nursing care in a facility created specifically to meet the changing health care needs of seniors.
The cost of creating this new and necessary facility is, as you know, enormously expensive. Croy Canyon Ranch Foundation cannot finance the entire cost to fund the new facility and requires at least $13 million in philanthropic support to build Croy Canyon Ranch. For Croy Canyon Ranch Foundation to create the exceptional continuing care retirement community we all want for ourselves, our families and loved ones, the community must help. A new senior living community will simply not be financially viable without this charitable support.
The time has arrived to make Croy Canyon Ranch a reality and to provide for the people who have contributed to the quality of life in the valley we all enjoy. Our friends and family deserve to have a living option that will allow them to continue to remain in the valley as their care needs change. For all of these reasons, we have agreed to lead the Croy Canyon Ranch Campaign. We feel fortunate to have the opportunity to help meet this important and critical need. Please join us in this commitment to our community.
