Located in a residential area of Boulder, Colorado, Frasier is an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit, purpose-driven community and presently affiliated with the Mountain Sky United Methodist Conference. Originally founded in 1958 by the Rocky Mountain Conference of the United Methodist Church on 20 acres of land donated by Elmer and Mayme Frasier, the spirit of giving runs deep in our roots. Since opening in 1960 with 100 apartments, we have grown to a team of 300+ dedicated individuals delivering care to almost 500 seniors.

Frasier is a member of Novare, a consortium founded in 2012 of forward-thinking, single-site, and small system Life Plan Community providers that have come together to collaborate, innovate, and enhance the world of senior living through shared next practices.
