Residents Head Back to Villagio of Broomfield – Update December 31st, 11:00 am

All residents are prepared for travel back to the community. We are loading the first bus now with residents, they will then drive to Broomfield. We will then load a second bus and head to Broomfield. We will take our time to help each person settle into their apartment home.

We ask family members who brought residents home with them for the night to wait until after Noon to return them to our community.  We want to ensure we have enough people in the community to welcome them and help residents and help them settle back into their apartments.

We have additional team members and vehicles to transport supplies and any additional residents or staff still at Clermont Park that could not fit on the two buses. Please be patient as we work on ensuring resident comfort and safety. Thank you for your support.

Grassland Fire Impact on Villagio of Broomfield as of Dec 31st 9:00 am

Last night we evacuated 38 residents to our sister community of Clermont Park in Denver. Residents enjoyed hot chocolate and tea when the arrived and then settled in to safely sleep and rest in beds and rest spaces assembled for all 38 residents. The Villagio of Broomfield care team along with support from Clermont Park care partners and Cappella (our management partner) leadership provided comfort, support and care.

Residents will enjoy breakfast at Clermont Park this morning and then we will begin an orderly and safe shuttle of residents on passenger buses back to Villagio. We will take our time and then help each resident settle back into their apartment homes.

The Broomfield Police Department lifted all evacuation orders for our area overnight and state it is now safe to return home. Our decision to evacuate last night was made when the fire was erratic, unpredictable and the evacuation orders were less than five miles away. We did not want to risk being unable to safely evacuate all residents in the event of a mandatory evacuation. We will send a recorded call update to families when we begin to move resident Thank you for your patience and continuing support.
