There’s never a dull moment at an InnovAge facility. Whether participants are in California, Colorado or New Mexico, InnovAge recreation specialists have something planned.

Recently participants from our Chambers Center in Aurora, Colorado rode the InnovAge Safari Bus to the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. They had a great time checking out a few of the 15,000 acres home to all types of wildlife.

“We’ve been collaborating closely throughout the center to plan outings. This is a great representation of team work and communication with wonderful results,” says Ron DeVries, center director, Chambers Center. “It allows for a more diverse group of our folks, both high functioning and low functioning, to interact out in the community together and share the fun together.”

The first trip saw Chambers REHAB Community Integration Outing group at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. Team members did advance work to plan the route, ensure surfaces were safe for those for who need a little help walking. Participants wore safari hats, and used compasses and binoculars for the journey. The next outing will be to the Denver Zoo.
