About the community

Tucked between Englewood and Glendale on Denver's southern edge, the independent and assisted living seniors at our community have decided to trade in the responsibilities of home maintenance for the retirement of their dreams. If you're ready to give up your chores and let someone else take care of you for a change, you can join them and redefine what it means to be independent.

For some people, independence looks like freeing up their time to invest in the quality relationships that bring them the most joy. For others, it means pursuing the passions and interests they've put off for years€”or using their newfound time freedom to discover new hobbies they love.

It doesn't matter how you choose to live out your retirement. What matters is that you can do it all here, surrounded by a community of warm and friendly residents and a care team that stays on campus 24 hours a day, seven days a week in case you need a little extra assistance throughout the day.

A few of the amenities and services available on campus include:
Spacious accommodations in multiple floor plans
On-site café, library, concierge service and fitness...

Perfect fit

I chose Brookdale because of the size of the rooms, the closet space, the view and the location is close to my daughter. The meals here are good quality. We are still under quarantine even though we have gotten our shots. I have the biggest, most beautiful room I have ever seen. I have a mountain and downtown Denver view. I would recommend to others looking.

My review of Brookdale University Park

The cleanliness of the community was very nice, and the rooms they provide for the residents are very nice.

Meals not delivered; more than a few missed

Brookdale University Park doesn’t care about their residents receiving meals. They continually miss bringing meals to my uncle that lives there. They give my uncle lame excuses why his meal hasn’t been delivered. It usually happens on Sunday, when he only gets two meals a day. He calls the front desk and they tell him it’s out being delivered. He waits another two hours and calls back and they say the kitchen is closed and they can’t get a meal to him. Nobody wants to be responsible or take blame or help him out. That is not fair when he can’t cook for himself and he’s paying for this service....they work for him, not him working for Brookdale. They need to step up and give the care that he is paying them for.

Review of Brookdale University Park

The staff here are exemplary. They go to the utmost extreme to make us comfortable. The food is palatable Thanks to a very caring leadership the lockdown is very difficult to bear, but we realize it's for our own safety. Having lived in another Brookdale facility, we feel we are extremely qualified to make these observations. [Name removed] is worth his weight in gold. Don't lose him!! Also [name removed].

Review of Brookdale University Park

I have been happy living here at Brookdale during my first 3 months when it was fully active. People were warm and friendly, comfortable apartments, great activities, good dining, and transportation. Since the shutdown due to COVID-19 10 weeks ago it has been very isolating with long days. The staff has been wonderful and have done a great job keeping us safe. I am looking forward to walking outside again.

Review of Brookdale University Park

I am so very thankful for them taking our vitals twice a day during this Covid-19 pandemic. They truly care for all of us. They have kept us in our apartments so we are away from any infection. This is a great deal of extra work for them as they bring us all 3 meals a day, request for lunch and dinner, and our mail and packages too! They all wear masks and they provide us all with masks as well. They make my day with their smiling eyes and seem happy to be seeing us. I am so thankful that I am here with such wonderful and kind employees and Director too.

Review of Brookdale University Park

Except for the quarantine, everything is fine. I moved in last September 2019. For the first six months, it was great. Nice staff, nice building, great apartment, and great service. Then we spent 2 months in quarantine. We were not allowed out of our apartments, even to walk on the grounds. Every time we were about to get out there would be another case. We had to stay in even though there was no way we oud have caught anything because we had already been in quarantine. Some of the staff members said that if we didn't like it we could leave! Being told to leave was offensive. It also sometimes seemed like we were being treated like children, "Go to your room." Other senior living places allowed residents to go out on the grounds even when in quarantine. I know the staff is trying to keep us safe, but keeping in for 2 months isn't good for either our physical or mental health.

Review of Brookdale University Park

I have been here for two years. Age 91 fairly good health. It was hard at first — the dining room scheduled times (in poor hearing), but it didn't take long to see how lucky we are to have this time with others — great menus, waiters/esses, kitchen staff. I love the independence that I have here, and grateful to a staff who takes care of our different likes and needs, and also, "where everyone knows your name."

Except for the food preparation and quality, Brookdale has been a good choice for us. We have lived here for 4 yrs and until the pandemic, life has been enjoyed. The staff is always polite and helpful and they deserve gratitude and accolades for all they do for us. We are thankful.

Review of Brookdale University Park

This facility was chosen by my 2 youngest children, a daughter who lives about a mile away and a son in Bromfield, CO. I had no input as I lived in Stafford City, VA in a 55+ single-family house. I was turning 80 and decided to sell, then move to a facility for seniors in that area. My oldest child lived about 3 miles away and 4 hr drive south in VA. Son decided to move here because the local daughter did a lot of travel for work and he didn't want me to that far from any family.

They take very good care of all of us, especially during the pandemic. I love my washer and dryer in my apartment. I love all the activities, when we can participate.

Review of Brookdale University Park

Brookdale employees work hard, I think sometimes they are understaffed, the food is mediocre. I also think that they don't have information with the tenants. I also think that the plants and the potted plants in the entry are not maintained. It's a beautiful building and should be "up-dated."

This critique has been on my desk for the longest. I find everything here agreeable. The management is very professional. The staff does a good job and they are helpful. The food is much better than average, in fact is it good. This facility deserves a very good rating.

[Name removed] and her entire staff have done an excellent job during this very difficult time. (COVID-19) They have made our lives here so much greater. Every employee has shown the residents here caring, love, respect, loyalty. All who work here are A+.

Over the 8 years I have lived here, it has always been a good choice. Sure, times are different in the past few years, due to Denver's growth but our leaders have done their best and we are grateful.

There is no doubr that living here is a treasure for all seniors. When you enter our lobby and visit the serenity which abounds, peace is immediately in your soul. The pressures of the world disappear and you can look forward to "aging in peace" for the rest of your life. Our gracious staff is outstanding - the "paradise" we never thought we could call "home."

My visit was very positive. Love that all the units come with in-unit washer/dryers and most have a private patio deck. Nice facility with plenty of amenities for independent and/or assisted living residents.

Not as vibrant as other Brookdales

I was looking for a place for my Mother-In-Law and I came across this community. I really liked this facility but it just didn’t seem to be as good of a fit for her like other places were. The biggest deciding factor was that it wasn’t as close as what I wanted. Also, it didn’t seem to be as bright and vibrant as other places I have looked at. The community seemed nice and looked fine. Everything looked clean but it just wasn’t for us. They do offer activities like going to casinos, exercise classes, card games, and watching movies. I would recommend this community.
