The Carillon at Belleview Station in Denver, CO
3.6

We chose The Carillon because of the opportunity for her to progress into assisted living and she can stay in her current apartment and they would bring assistance to her rather than having to change rooms. The apartment sizes here are really good. They've done exceptionally well with activities especially coming out of covid. They have undergone a change in staff so the food is good, but the service is not quite as good as it could be. I would recommend to others looking.
