Last month, Clermont Park was recognized for its life-long learning and empowerment model, Clermont College of Creative Life, with a North America Innovation award by the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA). The ICAA Innovators Awards honor those in the active-aging industry that are leading the way, setting new standards and making a difference in the lives of older adults.

The Clermont College of Creative Life was initiated two years ago based on Clermont Park resident Elsa Wycisk’s vision of a university model capitalizing on elders’ knowledge and experience. In the past year, the College has evolved and transformed into an all-inclusive life-long learning opportunity for people of any age and ability. In 2014-2015, Clermont College of Creative Life engaged more than 245 resident and team member participants.

Eighty percent of Clermont Park residents have participated in the College since its inception. It has also provided opportunities for many experts, including 29 resident educators, 34 team member educators, and 19 adjunct educators from DU and other organizations. In August, 74 residents graduated from the College, among them 44 from residential living, 14 from Assisted Living and memory support neighborhoods and 11 from the Health Suites.

Clermont Park is proud to receive the ICAA innovation award , but even more, we are honored by the amazing experience and empowerment that Clermont College of Creative Life has sparked in the community!
