Recent reviews of Independent Living in Wheat Ridge, CO
Garden Plaza of Aurora
3.4

The community is really good in a lot of ways. They are having a problem with hiring staff to serve the residents meals. The food is delivered cold to the residents. The community isn't able to accommodate dietary restrictions. The food really is not great at the community. The staff and residents are great to work with and are friendly. I'm glad I came here and not someplace else.

Westhaven Apartment Homes in Lakewood, CO
4.0

I have moved in to Westhaven Apartment Homes, and I really like it so far. I like that I can still maintain an independent lifestyle here, but that it is also a very active and social retirement facility. The staff is great, and they have a lot of activities like Bingo, movies, crafts, story time; there’s a gym, too. It’s an older building, but it’s clean, and they do a good job keeping it up. I also like that it is cost efficient, and I would recommend it to others looking to keep up an independent lifestyle.
