Join Triangle Cross Ranch in looking at how we define the New NORMAL
N = Necessary to the Community
Each individual plays an important role as a volunteer, a voice and a vital participant in our protected community as well as the community at large.
O = Oriented to Daily Living
Learning to live in the role of an independent adult takes time and training. We’re willing to allow as much as necessary to ensure success.
R = Realistic in expectations
Mistakes are God’s greatest learning tool. Rather than deny them, we embrace them for the lessons that are learned through them.
M = Moral in action
With Christ as our moral compass, our Ranchers learn to take responsibility for their words, actions and decisions with plenty of forgiveness and second chances on a daily, hourly and minute-by-minute basis.
A = Ability beyond disability
Our focus is on abilities and what each person CAN do. Ranchers and staff support each other in their weaknesses.
L = Loved beyond measure
We believe that every life is valuable and precious, no matter the abilities or disabilities. Love is unconditional, praise is loud and the laughter is contagious!
Triangle Cross Ranch is an assisted living facility, licensed by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. The Ranch provides the supports necessary for adults with intellectual disabilities to live as independently as possible while maintaining a high degree of safety.
Triangle Cross Ranch provides respite care for qualified individuals on a short term basis, whether for a few hours or several weeks. Watch this space for more information about the adult day care program, coming in 2014.
For those who qualify, the independent living option at Triangle Cross Ranch is different than at any other facility for adults with intellectual disabilities. This option offers the safety of a protected community and on site staff with the freedom of living without in-house staff supervision. Independent Ranchers can take advantage of three meals a day at assisted living homes,
Triangle Cross Ranch has 5 functioning homes that house a maximum of 5 Ranchers per house. Each house is a self contained home with its own staff team, budget, schedule, menus, chore lists, and environment. Each home participates in the overall schedule and structure of the facility, but is subject to the needs and desires of the individual Ranchers and the judgment of the staff team.
Our Ranchers come from all walks of life and from all parts of the country. We do not use our Ranchers' real names in public venues, and only post their pictures with permission.
The families that place their loved ones at Triangle Cross Ranch are special people. They sacrifice in order to pay the cost of care for their Ranchers and they understand the need to take personal responsibility for this care. We are honored to be associated with them.
This is the place to read their anecdotes and testimonies. You will recognize your own struggles as you read about theirs, and be inspired and encouraged as you view life through the eyes of the families of individuals with disabilities.
