Before you choose an assisted living community or retirement community to spend your Golden Years, make sure you consider top-rated providers in Colorado Springs. Senior Advisor awards the Best of Senior Living award annually to providers that have shown exemplary service based on high ratings and reviews from residents, residents’ families, and visitors. The following is a small sample of the 2016 Best of Senior Living award winners.
Assisted living facilities provide you with help when you need it. Whether you need assistance with personal care, laundry, or meals, an assisted living community could be your answer.
Palisades at Broadmoor Park offers semi-private rooms, studio apartments, one bedroom apartments, and two bedroom apartments. The facility offers wellness and physical fitness programs, including water fitness in the pool. You can dine in the restaurant-style dining room, and then relax on your private patio or balcony.
One reviewer commented on the cleanliness of the facility, “My mom is very happy with this community. It is the best place. I think that staff are all Angels to help my mom. They go out of [their] way. The grounds are very clean and also her room.”
Brookdale Bear Creek provides apartment-style housing and daily assistance from the staff. You can choose from a semi-private room, private room, studio, one bedroom apartment, or a two bedroom apartment. Meals are provided and you can find plenty of activities to engage in on-site.
One reviewer wrote, “Our situation is a bit different from most. My in laws are current residents of Brookdale Bear Creek and also have my brother in law who suffers from Down Syndrome living with them as well. With those special circumstances I must say the dealing with the staff and seeing how they interact with my family has been quite amazing! They are very accommodating and attentive! What we appreciate most is that they are very good at communicating with us and keep us updated on their well being! I would definitely recommend!”
Alzheimer’s disease and dementia residents require intensive care as well as a safe and secure environment. Both Palisades at Broadmoor Park and Brookdale Bear Creek (see above) offer memory care programs.
Sunrise at University Park provides Alzheimer’s care for residents as well as assisted living. The center offers aging in place, nurses on staff, homecare on-site, respite care and hospice care, and meals. You or loved one can also receive physical, occupational, or speech therapy on-site if needed. Sunrise has won the Best of Senior Living for 2013-2014 and 2016.
One family member wrote, “Mom has been at Sunrise for some time now and since she's moved in she has been so happy. Mom used to work in a place like this and she is really pleased with the upkeep of the community and the friendliness of the staff. The food is amazing and there's a restaurant style dining area where you can enjoy your meal. Mom enjoys the movie night and playing Bingo with the other residents. Yes, I'd say I'd recommend!”
