Elevated Living

A central element of Keystone Senior is in our commitment to engage the interests, needs, wants and dreams of our residents which leads to experiencing an elevated life in seven key areas:

  • Emotional: humor, celebrations, music and the friendships that are developed.
  • Environmental: walking paths, a nurturing and relaxing park-like courtyard.
  • Intellectual: lectures, brain fitness, cultural events, book clubs.
  • Physical: fitness programs, including but not limited to yoga, tai chi, health talks, chair exercise and stretch classes.
  • Vocational: hobbies, involvement with charities, volunteering, weekly woodshop
  • Social: happy hour, lunch and dinner outings, monthly veteran’s dinner
  • Spiritual: Faith-based programs, bible studies, church services and communion.

A wide selection of offerings such as restaurant-style dining rooms, an indoor pool, movie theaters, putting green, fitness center, transportation via Cadillac, pub and billiards room, libraries, reserved carports and a relaxing fire pit to enjoy on a cool summer evening.

There are miles of walking trails adjacent to campus in the Legacy Ridge neighborhood and a community library just one-half mile away.

Assisted Living’s Best of the Best

You want to make sure you do your homework when evaluating a senior living community.  One thing people sometimes overlook is the question of consistency; has the community you’re considering been noted for providing good care and a supportive, healthy environment year after year?  Keystone Place at Legacy Ridge has been awarded the Caring Super Star for being named a Caring Star winner for four years in a row.

Melissa Ward

Melissa Ward

Executive Director

Growing up in North Dakota, I was surrounded by the love of five great grandparents and four grandparents.  Spending much of my youth going to work with them, playing cards, learning how to make kuchen, playing music, and listening to stories.  This is where my growing love for caring and working with seniors comes from. I would consider myself an old soul.

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of North Dakota, with a Bachelors of Sciences degree.  Just after graduating, I spent a few years working in an assisted/skilled living setting as well as creating fitness programs for seniors at a local recreation center.  My professional journey then took me to a successful sales position in exercise equipment sales, which ultimately lead me to Keystone Place at Legacy Ridge.

In 2010, I was hired as the Life Enrichment Director at Keystone Place.  I left for a brief period of time, but visited Keystone Place frequently, sometimes teaching chair yoga.  Keystone Place has always felt like home to me.  I was fortunate to be hired back at Keystone Place as the Office Manager in 2012, which lead me to being the Director of Operations.  In 2014, I received my Administrators License and became the Associate Executive Director.  In 2015, I was promoted to be the Executive Director at Keystone Place at Legacy Ridge.  I could not be more honored and proud to be part of an amazing team.

As the Executive Director, I embraces the opportunity to listen to residents, family members, and guests; and understand their needs and concerns.  We all work together to strive for the highest quality of life for our residents.   Listening to our residents to provide services that will elevate and enrich their lives with excellent customer service, is my goal.  I look forward to meeting you and learning your life story.

Marketing Director

I have spent my whole career in Sales and Customer Service.   A long time ago, I learned from a great manager that when you do the right things, good things happen.  I have adopted that motto in both my professional and my personal life – and it is so true!  This customer service approach has brought me great success, growth, and fulfillment, and it fits perfectly with Keystone Place’s philosophies.

In May of 2013, I had the good fortune to join the team at Keystone Place at Legacy Ridge.  The work I do here does not feel like work at all.   Getting to know you, learning what is important to you, and your wants and needs – this is truly the best thing I’ve ever done!  And it is a privilege to be a part of this amazing team! 

My husband and I love entertaining and spending time with friends and family (3 kids and 3 grandkids).   We go to movies and concerts, and travel every chance we get!

I look forward to the opportunity to meet you and learn more about you and your loved ones, and how Keystone Place may be a great solution for your family!

Director of Operations

I joined the Keystone team for a change in careers.  I was a medical language specialist for 22 years and decided I needed something more stimulating with a variety of duties.  I have always worked in an office setting.  I also have management experience.  I have learned through my journey of life that people are basically the same everywhere.  They just want to be respected and treated the way you would want to be treated.  I have a varied work history dealing with all types of business entities, and I was glad to get the call about landing this position.  The short time I have been here I have enjoyed.  The residents are wonderful as are the employees.

On a personal note, I am the mother of one son and the grandmother of one grandson, age 5.  They are the light of my life.  They live in Missouri so my time with them is few and far between; however, we do a lot of facetime over the phone.  I have 2 Schnauzers, Riley and Kobe, who keep me busy when I am not at work.  My mother also lives with me.  So, I have a full house and a busy schedule now!

Director of Community Relations

I continue to be thrilled and blessed to be a member of this great team!  My work history consists of 15+ years transitioning seniors, marketing, and in real estate. 

I thoroughly enjoy my position here at Keystone Place.  I love working with and getting to know our families and resident’s as the genuine people that they are.

My husband Paul and I enjoy spending time with our children and beautiful grand children.  We love camping, fishing, boating and of course road trips through the amazing Colorado mountains on our Harley.

Once again, it’s a pleasure to be working here and I look forward to meeting more and more families and potential residents who would like to make Keystone Place their home.

Shannon Kissinger

Director of Resident Care

Growing up in rural Western Pennsylvania, I spent many days as a preschooler alongside my Mother volunteering in a local Nursing Home so you might say that is where my love and passion for seniors began. As I grew, so did my desire to pursue becoming a nurse. Following high school graduation I completed general education credits at Penn State University as well as Thiel College. In 1996 I left Pennsylvania and moved to Colorado where in 2004, I graduated from Emily Griffith Opportunity School with my LPN. I spent six years as a nurse in a skilled nursing facility in Lafayette, CO and two years working as a Hospice nurse before accepting the Director of Resident Care Position at Keystone Place in May of 2012. My time at Keystone has been both challenging and rewarding. I take great pride in my work and focus on advocating for what is best for each and every one of our Residents. It brings me great joy to work with such an amazing team of people every day who share in the common goal of making the lives of our Residents as fulfilling as possible.

Tara Hubbard

Tara Hubbard

Assisted Living Executive Chef Manager

I grew up going to the Missouri State Fair with my grandparents enjoying all the sights, sounds and food you find there. From deep fried Twinkies to the Tilt-a- Whirl, my grandmother grounded my love of life and food. She made me a strong woman and always told me I could achieve whatever I wanted. I started as a waitress and knew I could be a chef one day.

I picked up everything in 2005 and moved to Colorado. I attended the Art Institute of Colorado obtaining my degree in Culinary Arts. After I graduated, I worked under an amazing chef who owned a Denver delicatessen and bread company. From learning to cook the perfect egg, to being a barista, I’ve seen a spectrum of food operations. Most recently, I have ran corporate kitchens bringing my love of farm fresh local ingredients to engineers in the technology industry. My proudest moments in life, however, come from raising my teenage son, Zane and two year old daughter, Henrietta. My husband and I will soon have a preschooler and a senior in high school, ready to take on the world. We love enjoying all the fun and sun Colorado has to offer.

Now, I get great pleasure cooking and caring for the wonderful people of Keystone Place. Giving them not only great food but great memories new and old. I truly cannot wait for the opportunity to spoil my guests every day.
