The Vision

In Mesa County, more than 10,000 people are now over the age of 75 and that is expected to double in the next decade. Research shows that everyone has fears, especially as they age.

The Bacon Center for Living Your Best and its programs will address the most significant fears and concerns we all have.

New Center & New Programs

The Bacon Center for Living Your Best will provide the infrastructure and hub for a continuum of programming to meet a wide array of needs as those in our community age.

It will be a space for entertainment, socialization, and primary health care as well as a hub for HopeWest palliative care and hospice staff.

Campaign Progress

In 2017, HopeWest leadership and Board of Directors knew expansion was on the horizon. After hearing the need to create a hub of care and services for seniors in our community, leadership considered creating new programs and weighed options to meet this need.

Learn more about how Hope has Bloomed and how our community has helped to make this vision a reality.

“We have to get behind great programs like the HopeWest expansion of services that will build the kind of community we envision. We have promoted Mesa County as a great place to retire, so we must prepare to meet the needs of those who choose to live here.” – Doug

“It is often said that ‘home is where the heart is.’ I believe with all my heart that we should do all we can to help people age in place–in the homes that they love. The HopeBlooms campaign can make that possible.” – Jamee

Project Details

The Herb & Laura May Bacon Center for Living Your Best is a significant project for HopeWest. You will learn it is not just about a building and creating a “space” for programs, but a home for the level of innovation required to meet the needs facing our community.

The Center for Living your Best will be a setting that is inviting, entertaining and warm. It will house programs that provide for human caring, lifelong learning and ultimately change our world view of the elderly.

It will be more like a club and less like a facility.

This project will transform the way individuals and families adapt to the challenges presented by the last chapters of our lives. It will enable people to age in place and remain as independent and fulfilled as possible in the comfort of home, yet retain social relationships critical for our health. It will transform our future as an organization, but even more importantly will define our personal future as we age. This campaign truly will result in “hope blooming.”
