About the facility
Verandas at Wheat Ridge

The Verandas at Wheat Ridge is an assisted living community in Wheat Ridge, Colorado. This community offers board and care or family-style assisted living. Unlike apartment-style assisted living, board and care can offer round-the-clock personal care in a homelike setting. Seniors who stay at The Verandas can make their own transfers, assist in their own dressing, enjoy conversation with their housemates and caregivers, and participate in entertainment and activities that are selected according to their abilities and interests.

This community features several amenities that are perfect for active seniors. The Verandas at Wheat Ridge feature a salon, a library, a multi-purpose room, a beautiful courtyard, a laundry room, and community pets. Wi-Fi is available throughout the community, and each apartment features a large closet.

 

Families enjoy the peace of mind knowing that their loved one is in a homelike environment with the security of a 24-hour staff.

Tour of Verandas at Wheat Ridge
We did not have the best tour experience at Verandas at Wheat Ridge. The house smelled and the appearance was just off-putting. It made me sad because the gal who runs it is so sweet and you can tell she is really trying her hardest, she looked exhausted. It made us realize my loved one did not need this type of care.

My father in law lived here for a year he is malnourished and severely dehydrated. He has dementia and uses a catheter and upon moving him out because of [name removed] who lies different lies to each family member the lack of care for him....his room had urine and stains on the floors all over his bed was blood and urine. His bed was brand new when he moved in. Dirty cather bags with urine still in them mixed in with clean catheter bags. They were told his bags needed changed every week but they were only changing once a month. He had constant UTI'S now we know why. Other residents told us he had to beg to get his bag emptied during the day. They call frozen fish sticks and tater tots a nutritious meal and cold bowls of cereal for breakfast! He wasn't bathed regularly and his fingernails were longer than mine. His hair greasy and dirty. I have to wash all of his clothes because they smell bad. He didn't even have a pillowcase on his pillow. They removed his cable and he couldn't watch tv. They have birds and they don't even have food... a new resident told me she started buying food for them. I will be reviewing on google with pictures of that mess. This place is not what it seems! I regret every day our dad was there!s

Seemed Nice
It seemed to be very nice. There was a good mix of men and women. It would have been the one we would have chosen if we hadn't seen another one. They had a nice yard. I can't remember whether or not people had free access to it though. I can't remember whether or not they had the doors locked. I don't know how many dementia patients they had either so maybe having the doors locked was necessary.

My mother spent 5 weeks at Verandas before she was placed in a Hospice facility. She was not happy with the service she received at Verandas. However she was failing quickly when she was admitted and within a week or so needed help dressing herself and eating. Her inability to help herself continued to decline until she left. Verandas was clear that as an Assisted Living Facility their clients had to be able to be more self sufficient than my mom was in order to stay. The facility was clean and rooms were nice and the food good. The owner was also willing to work with us on waving the normal 1 year private pay requirement before we could have a Medicaid bed however we didn't end up needing this.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the Colorado regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about Colorado regulations for Assisted Living.
