We chose Grand Villa because of the cleanliness of the facility, they had an activity director, and [name removed], the executive director really sold the place. She is a very kind person, was patient with all of our questions, and followed through on everything that she said she would. The room sizes are average, everything she needed fits in there. The rooms have fabulous windows to look out so she gets a lot of natural light. Mom raves about the food, they are chef prepared meals and she is very excited about that. I cannot say enough n ice things about the staff members that I have dealt with here, every single person greets me and they all knew who my mom is. They really make an effort to get to know everybody and I really like that. I would highly recommend to others who are looking.

I've spent a lot of time there and met all the staff. I've stayed there. It's a five-star facility all around It's a brand new building. Everything is spotless and brand spanking new. All the rooms are beautiful and new. The rooms are large, and so are the bathrooms, which is great for elderly people to get in and out of in a wheelchair The rooms also have a kitchenette with a full-size refrigerator. No stove, but that's pretty standard. And then you get to bring your own furniture and hang your own art. It's like her own home transported over to the apartment. The food is excellent - three full-service meals a day, terrific dining staff, a chef there, and they have a menu and everything. I was surprised at how extensive it was. They have multiple care levels that are all-inclusive - rent, cable, utilities, meals, and care are all included, so there are no other bills. It's a relatively small community. I think there are about 36-48 rooms total between all the care levels. They have a shuttle service every day to take residents to the doctor or to the bank, and they go on trips out to dinner. They also have a salon on-site where the stylist comes once a week by appointment. There's a spa you can reserve for an extra cost. They also have several game rooms and a movie theater with about 12 giant movie chairs in it and a big screen. It even has movie theater signs out front announcing the next showing. And there are several lounge areas with big screen TVs to sit around and just do nothing. Every day there are multiple activities to participate in - bingo, cooking lessons, sewing, checkers and chess, and all sorts of other things. It's also one block across the street from best hospital in all of western Colorado. Obama even came there to visit during his presidency because of their accolades to see how they were doing things. I think The Lodge is a great value, and very reasonable compared to other places in the area.
