Chrysalis Chronicles

In a heartwarming initiative aimed at fostering connection and wonder within our memory care unit, we recently introduced a raised garden bed to our community. What began as a simple addition to our outdoor space blossomed into a transformative journey, culminating in a butterfly release that touched the hearts of our residents and caregivers.
As the garden flourished, so too did the sense of wonder and curiosity among our residents. One day, while tending the garden, we made a remarkable discovery- caterpillars nestled among the leaves of a milkweed plant. This unexpected encounter sparked excitement, igniting a newfound interest in the delicate creatures and their remarkable journey of transformation.
With each passing day, residents and staff observed the caterpillars as they voraciously devoured milkweed leaves. Eventually the time came for the caterpillars to undergo their miraculous metamorphosis, transforming into chrysalides in preparation for their final stage of life as butterflies.
The anticipation reached a crescendo on the day of the butterfly release. With gentle hands our Lifestyle Coordinator, Mark, carefully showed each resident the butterfly we had captured before we released it. That small butterfly was a great reminder of the simple, yet profound, beauty of nature’s cycle of life and transformation. In the garden we have not only witnessed the growth of plants, but also the growth in spirits, as our residents have found solace, purpose and joy.


This massive dessert rock weighs in at an estimated 3,577 Tons and stands at 128 feet tall. That’s about the length of three yellow school buses.

May Outings

May Outings

Anticipation is building at The Canopy as we gear up for two fantastic outings that promise to bring joy and enrichment to residents. On May 2nd, our assisted living residents will be treated to a special afternoon at the dinner theater, where they will have the pleasure of watching a performance of the beloved classic, South Pacific. With its captivating storyline, beautiful music, and talented cast, this theatrical experience is sure to delight and inspire our residents, transporting them to a world of romance and adventure.
Meanwhile, on May 15th our memory care residents will be hitting the lanes for a fun filled afternoon of bowling. This outing offers a wonderful opportunity for residents to socialize, stay active and enjoy some friendly competition in a relaxed and supportive environment.
Both outings reflect our Lifestyle Departments commitment to providing diverse and engaging opportunities or our residents to connect, explore and create lasting memories together. Whether it’s the thrill of knocking down pins or the magic of live theater, these experiences enrich the lives of everyone in our community.


National Park

Arches National Park comprises 76,519 acres, more than 1.46 million people visited the park in 2022

The Canopy Takes on The Trop

The Canopy Takes on The Trop

Despite the ominous clouds looming overhead, residents of The Canopy eagerly boarded the bus for an outing to Tropicana Field to watch the Tampa Bay Rays take on the Texas Rangers. Excitement filled the air as we donned our team colors and settled into our seats, ready for an afternoon of baseball, camaraderie and fun!
Even though the Rays ultimately fell short in their bid for victory, the mood remained upbeat and spirited among our residents. For many, the joy of being surrounded by fans, cheering on their team, and sharing in the excitement of live baseball outweighed the disappointment of the loss.
Throughout the game, residents shared stories of their own experiences with baseball- memories of attending games with family and friends, cheering on favorite teams from years past, and reliving the thrill of victory. We were honored to have one of our residents’ children join us for his very first baseball game. These shared experiences promoted a sese of camaraderie, uniting us in a shared love for America’s Pastime.
As the final out was recorded and the game came to an end, our adventure continued as we departed the stadium amid a downpour. Despite the stormy weather and the Ray’s loss, the outing was a resounding success. In the end, it wasn’t about the final score or the weather conditions- it was about coming together as a community, embracing the moment and finding joy and laughter in simple pleasures.

Hydration Station

Hydratation Station

At The Canopy, we understand the importance of seniors staying hydrated, especially as temperatures rise and the risk of dehydration increases. That’s why our Dining Services Team has implemented a dedicated hydration station in our dining area, ensuring residents have easy access to refreshing beverages throughout the day.

Hydration is crucial for seniors as it plays a vital role in maintaining their overall health and wellbeing. As people age, their bodies become less efficient at retaining water, making them more susceptible to dehydration. Proper hydration is essential for supporting bodily functions such as temperature regulation, digestion and circulation. Dehydration in seniors can lead to a range of serious health problems, including urinary tract infections, kidney problems, confusion and even falls. Additionally, adequate hydration is essential for maintaining cognitive function and mood stability. By prioritizing hydration, seniors can enhance their energy levels, improve their quality of life and reduce their risk of complications associated with dehydration.

As we continue to prioritize the health and well-being of our residents, our hydration station remains a cornerstone of our commitment to hydration and overall wellness.



Double O Arch

The second largest arch within the Devils Garden area. As the name implies, there are two arches here, one large, with a
span of 71 feet, stacked atop a much smaller arch with a 21-foot span. It was formed by downward water erosion from atop the sandstone, rather than from side-to-side water erosion.
