Springwood Retirement Campus in Arvada, CO
4.9

The staff are very involved and many of the staff members have been with the community a long time. They know the residents and take great care of them. This is a quieter community and some of the residents aren't as social as others due to health issues. The staff are great to work with if the family has questions or concerns about our loved one. Happy hour, Uno, monthly celebrations, outside entertainment, and more are some of the activities offered to the residents. My loved one loves the food offered. They have eggs anyway you want it and the residents love this once a week option.
