Christian Living Communities (CLC) is in informal talks with senior care innovator Dr. Bill Thomas’ company, Minka, to open a small-home community for older adults in Colorado.
The senior living provider is currently looking for a 10- to 12-acre plot of land in the greater Denver area on which to ultimately build up to 100 Minka homes. As envisioned, the homes would range from 800 to 1,200 square feet and exist in small groups, according to CLC President and CEO Terry Rogers.
“We envision a ramp-up approach where we do smaller clusters of Minkas on this property,” Rogers told Senior Housing News. “The campus would also support some amenities.”
They could function similar to independent living cottages, with included meals, amenities and programming, or they could lie closer to rental active adult properties, where services are more limited, Rogers added. CLC is seeking to build the community in a walkable area with access to nearby amenities and services such as grocery stores, pharmacies and medical offices.
Though the plans are still in their early stages, they are notable, as Christian Living Communities is among the first established senior living providers to collaborate with Minka on a large-scale senior living community.

"I made some good friends after moving to Clermont Park. My family loves it. They have also met a lot of good people here."
"Clermont Park is a great place to live. You can participate as much or as little as you want in community activities. You can meet as many people as you like, and they are generally open, so I’ve made a lot of friends in the short time I’ve been here. "
