The Villas at Sunny Acres - Thornton, CO has yet not published prices.
My mother lives there and they make their elderly walk to get their mail. Most of the tenants are on walkers, have breathing problems or other medical problems. This has been addressed to the new administration and my family was told it would get addressed, but it has not. The weather has changed and it is bitterly cold and they are still expected to walk up and get their mail. There are issues with her cottage and they have yet to fix them. Now that winter has set in, she has cold coming from under her door which she was told in September that it would be taken care of, she has had mice problems, appliance problems, etc. If it was not convenient to her doctors and shopping, we would move her.(We still may) These elderly people have fixed incomes and the rates keep going up and the service keeps getting worse.
My mom was moved here after the flood in Boulder pretty much destroyed Frasier Meadows, the nursing where she lived for 8 years.
She died within 6 weeks, in my opinion, due to the awful care she received at this facility.
Everybody at Villas is very nice. They're friendly, courteous, and, on the surface, they appear to do their jobs. Unfortunately, every single staff individual I had contact with here were
merely paper pushers, every one, without exception.
However, they are supposed to be caregivers.
Despite assurances to the contrary, mom was insufficienly nourished, dehydrated, and had an awful infection on her foot. All of this went unnoticed, until it was too late.
Her last week was spent in hospice.
Please do not send anyone you care about to this excuse for a care giving facility.
