Statement from Life Care Center of Aurora regarding COVID-19


Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation in Aurora, CO

Updated: Wednesday, June 10, 6:40 a.m. MDT

At Life Care Center of Aurora, residents are – and have always been – our highest priority.

We are working closely with the Colorado Department of Health, the Agency for Health Care Administration and the local health department to ensure we are taking the appropriate steps. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, we have been following the latest guidelines, from both state and federal authorities, including the CDC.

Our primary concern is for the health and safety of our residents, nursing staff and other care providers. They are on the front line of this unprecedented outbreak. Our staff is trained in the proper use of PPE and are following all relevant guidelines in infection control. Our associates are the true heroes, and I am amazed by them each and every day as they show up to care for the residents as they would their own family members.

We'll continue to provide regular updates to loved ones and to state and local officials. Here are the latest details from our facility:

  • Our facility is currently COVID-19 free.
  • All residents who previously tested positive for COVID-19 have recovered per the CDC's strict guidelines for recovery; they no longer require isolation precautions.
  • All associates who previously tested positive for COVID-19 have met the CDC's guidelines for recovery and returning to work after testing positive for COVID-19.
  • We are maintaining consistent communication with families and always welcome their questions and contact. Even though our visitation remains restricted, we're happy to coordinate phone calls, video chats or window visits.
  • • We will continue to stay in close contact with the local health department and the Colorado Department of Health. Their guidance and support are greatly appreciated. We are also thankful for the ongoing support we've received from the Aurora community.

In addition to reaching out to us, the ombudsman is available should families wish to speak with her:
