Our Heritage


Our parent company, Christian Living Communities (CLC), opened its first nursing home in 1972, to provide a place where elders were treated with love, respect and compassion.

After a few expansions on the original campus located in Denver, organizational leaders knew they needed to expand the mission. In partnership with the Helen K. and Arthur E. Johnson Foundation a not-for-private, family foundation, CLC opened The Johnson Center in 1990. At the time it was the only nursing home in Arapahoe County offering both long-term care and assisted living services.

A few years later, again with generous support from The Johnson Foundation another building was added to the campus, The Village offering residential or independent living apartment homes as well as more assisted living apartments. CLC also leased land to Porter Hospice.

As the years went by the campus expanded services to become the full continuum of care it is known for today. Yet, not everyone realized the two buildings were really part of one neighborhood – one community – one continuum of care.

In 2013 we repositioned the campus under one identifying name, Someren Glen Retirement Community, so that everyone – residents, families and the greater community – would come to know the promise of this full continuum community. We cherish and build upon our Johnson Center roots. Someren Glen is a place where you are invited to paint your own canvas; to create a masterpiece – your life – well lived.
