Events

Getting together with other members of the community is rewarding. In addition to ongoing interactions and daily routines, Residents can participate in a wide range of programs and organized activities that are an important part of our community. You might join others in games and conversation, or participate in programs and activities across the campus, such as resident council meetings, informational presentations, coffee and discussion groups, craft and exercise classes, bridge groups, writing groups and knitting groups. Even those who don’t consider themselves ‘joiners’ will find themselves drawn into the action.

Great Decisions

We are proud to host this discussion group that debates the most critical global issues facing America today. Great Decisions is a national program that was first launched in Portland, OR more than 50 years ago. Now hosted by the Foreign Policy Association, an informal conversation is mediated by a member of the Association. Debate is based on several key articles that attendees explore while expressing opinion and views. Great Decisions allows residents to stay engaged in current events and to voice their opinions in a healthy, nurturing space.

Art Class

During our art classes, Golden West residents get a chance to express themselves through a combination of color, imagination and creativity. Residents feel alive as they brush the canvas with color, making landscapes, people and objects appear. Instructors help attendees refine their concept and technique, leading to wonderful works we appreciate every day.

Resident Council

We have an active Resident Council here at Golden West. In the meetings, residents get the opportunity to collaborate with staff members to address various issues impacting their lives and to influence positive change for the Golden West community. This committee is, without doubt, integral to the workings at Golden West, allowing all residents to voice concerns and for staff to better engage with the folks who live within these walls.

Theater Group

In this lively collection of people from our senior living community, attendees read scripts, act out scenes from their favorite plays and engage in drama. This troupe brings humor and spectacle to the “stage” as they practice their favorite characters. We encourage new attendees to captivate this crowd with their talent. Drama required!

Game Night

Come get your game on with our game nights! Our residents enjoy lively gatherings to play classic games with fellow community members. From Bingo to Mah Jong to Scrabble, any game player is welcome. Bring your strategy and your fun side.

Book Club

One of the best ways to create friendships is through a love of books. Come imagine new worlds, envision characters and travel the world while making memories with your fellow residents. Our monthly book club brings imagination to the room as its members explore the depths heroes go, debate themes and join in the fun by stitching narratives together with one another. We also take advantage of the Boulder Public Library’s “Books in a Bag” program – a wonderful resource!

Movies

If you’re a cinephile, you’re in luck. We have a weekly movie night as well as a weekly matinee in our open common room with movies galore. From drama to romance to action, movie night is dedicated to current flicks, while our weekend matinee is reserved for classic films. Bring your popcorn!

Acupuncture

Of the many things we offer at Golden West, our bi-weekly acupuncture clinic has been by far one of the resident favorites. Residents enjoy the soothing effects of acupuncture thanks to the gentle and skilled hands of Michelle LaPointe, a certified practitioner. Come and see for yourself.
