Mission: To develop and operate a senior living and mentoring facility.
Programs: Northern arizona senior living community, llc dba the peaks, a senior living facility (the peaks) located in flagstaff, arizona, is a comprehensive senior living and healthcare campus consisting of 58 skilled nursing beds, 96 assisted living units, and 39 bungalows. The peaks, flagstaff, arizona, is unique in its community involvement in that it shares strong ties with the museum of northern arizona, and flagstaff medical center. The peaks provides its residents, as well as children in the area, with fully developed intergenerational activities benefiting older adults and children alike. Two of the peaks residents and the lodge executive director are docents of the museum, providing education on local history, and discoveries of the colorado plateau to area schools, associations, the public and peaks residents. The peaks provides independent, assisted living, progressive memory care, rehabilitation, long-term care, and skilled nursing, with the opportunity for residents to "age in place. " residents are encouraged to remain in their apartment homes receiving assistance with activities of daily living through personalized levels of care. The community was developed through a nonprofit partnership between intergenerational living and health care, the museum of northern arizona and northern arizona healthcare. For the fiscal year ended december 31, 2017, the peaks participated in various charitable initiatives such as the provision of discounted care through participation in the arizona state medicaid program and indian health services. We average 18 medicaid patients in our skilled nursing facility on a daily basis. In our lodge, and bungalows we averaged 11 residents on a daily basis discounting eligible resident's care by $430,336 during 2017. We have a partnership with the museum of northern arizona (mna), which supports an art collection within the peaks and three museum docent programs. The peaks has come to an agreement with the museum of northern arizona to issue memberships to all peaks' residents. We believe this art enriches the lives of our residents and the community as a whole. Each month we support the museum with an $825 monthly fee. (value $9,900). We currently have a $7,500 endowment at northern arizona university within the behavioral and social science department for scholarships to students who plan careers that would support seniors. In addition, an endowment in the amount of $15,000 was established with the northern arizona university's (nau) foundation to be used for scholarships for degree advancement for registered nurses who aspire to earn a bachelor's degree in nursing. Nau nursing students in the baccalaureate and masters programs serve a portion of their internship in the peaks' healthcare center. Future certified nursing assistants from coconino community college shadow lodge caregivers to fulfil program graduation requirements. The cost of caregiver training, and certification increased to $1,000. In 2017 the peaks funded caregiver training, and certification for five candidates at a cost of $5,000. To offset the cost of school supplies not provided by the flagstaff independent school district, the peaks donated $10,000 to local teachers to purchase supplies, which would have otherwise come out of their personal funds. Each school received $1,000 to distribute among their teachers.
