Foothill residents need a place for seniors like Rincon Del Rio

I was pleased to read the article about the proposed Rincon Del Rio, which would be the county’s first and only retirement community of this type.

As a former executive with a reputable Northern California home care and hospice organization, I feel confident in saying that now is the time for Nevada County to act on how to best serve our active and growing aging population.

It appears that Rincon Del Rio would be a significant asset to Nevada County – meeting the needs of our aging population while providing local employment opportunities and substantial revenue for the county.

As the future of health hangs in the balance, issues such as preserving quality of life, managing chronic disease, and end-of-life care are significant concerns for our aging population. Rincon Del Rio would provide a solution to these concerns – and so much more.

Thank you to Carol and Jim Young for their commitment and vision to Nevada County.
