Casa de Modesto’s Golden Anniversary

Casa de Modesto is much more than a local retirement community, they are a home. May 16, 2015 marked 50 years since the non-for-profit first opened their doors. In the words of Executive Director Kelly Wiest, “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.”

The secret to the achievement of celebrating their golden anniversary lies in the dedication of their Board of Directors and of their staff. Wiest believes that people are drawn “by the excellence of our staff.” He says that he has experienced first-hand the feeling of family among residents and those that care for them. Wiest explains that what makes Casa de Modesto unique is the 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.”
