With our highly-trained staff of compassionate professionals, we give residents the care they need and the happiness they deserve, every single day.

It works like this: we work with residents, their loved ones, medical team, and on-site healthcare providers to develop individualized senior care plans. Each plan is made possible with 24/7 caregiver support and enhanced with a variety of daily and weekly activities, such as card and board games, exercise, happy hour, ice cream socials, live entertainment, and community events.

We are not a nursing home. We are an assisted living community.

At our community, older adults receive personalized long-term care services, including a pet-friendly apartment, mouthwatering meals, and all the support they need. We recommend this level of care for individuals who need some assistance with activities of daily living, such as medication management, bathing, dressing, and more, such as people with limited mobility or are in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia.

But meeting someone’s physical needs is only part of the equation; we also meet each resident’s emotional needs. That is why we offer regular activities and outings that create a sense of community and foster friendships between residents, family members, and staff.

A note from a family member of a previous resident - Cindy J.

“I want to thank the staff at Avista for taking such incredible care of my dad in his last month with us. You all provided an opportunity for him to really enjoy his last days with laughter, love, and dignity. My mom is so very appreciative of your daily support and care, and we thank you dearly for that. Here is part of the obituary that will be running in our local Sunday paper. Again, you have our deepest appreciation.”
Herbert Leippe (1929 – 2023) Herb was born in Gilroy, California on June 21, 1929. He loved the fact that he was born on the longest day of the year and enjoyed celebrating his birthday every year on the first day of Summer. Herb lived in Watsonville most of his young life, Scotts Valley, and other beautiful places in California and finally settled with his wife in Caldwell, ID. He passed away peacefully on October 13, 2023.
If you knew Herb Leippe, you knew about his talent as an artist in Santa Cruz. He frequently told the story of how he started drawing in grade school and would get in trouble for doodling on his paper in class. When he was enrolled at Watsonville High, he finally had the chance to take an art class, and the rest is history. He continued with pens & inks, watercolors, and oils until his passing at the age of 94. He drew for the staff at the care facility he resided at once they saw his artwork displayed on the walls in his room. In early years, Herb painted the side of a wall at Andy’s Auto, in Santa Cruz, and painted a large mural still on display at Kraft Body Shop. Herb was a member of the Santa Cruz Art League and participated in many local art exhibitions.

Herb’s family greatly appreciates the support and service by the Hospice team that cared for him, along with the staff at Avista Senior Living in Nampa, ID who provided wonderful and loving care during the last weeks of his long and happy life.
