Casa De Modesto Marks 50th Anniversary
By Anne Marie Bergthold
Case De Modesto is much more than a local retirement community. It is a home.
May 16 marked 50 years for the nonprofit, a half century spent providing care to local seniors.
“Founded in 1965, the mission of our multi-level care community is to provide the highest quality, affordable, and innovative accommodations and services to our senior community,” said Casa De Modesto Executive Director Kelly Wiest.
Casa de Modesto owes its golden anniversary to the dedication of its Board of Directors and employees, Wiest says. He believes that people are drawn to the facility “by the excellence of our staff.” Wiest says that he has experienced first-hand the feeling of family among residents and those who care for them.
Wiest says that residents also enjoy a wide variety of activities, which include weekly ice cream socials, trips to the mall, concerts at the Gallo Center and “onsite musical programs several times a week.”
