I love it here at this community. It is wonderful, they have activities and the staff are very caring and responsive to the residents. I keep trying to get all of my friends to move in I like it here so much.

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.

My dad has recently made the move into this community and so far everything is going well for him. The staff have been wonderful to work with and I am comfortable with the care he has been provided. He has had no complaints about the meals and enjoys participating in some of the great activities they have to offer all of the residents. Overall it has been a great fit and I would recommend it to anyone interested.

Transportation

Public transportation in Denver is provided by the Regional Transportation District, which operates bus, rail, and light rail services throughout the county. A car may be necessary, however, to get around the city outside of the downtown area. There are a number of services in the city that offer senior transportation, including RTD SeniorRide, which picks up groups of ten or more people from a single destination to travel to select community events for a fee.

Health care

Denver is a major metropolitan area, and as such, offers many options for medical care. Top hospitals in the city include UC Health University of Colorado Hospital, Porter Adventist Hospital, and Sky Ridge Medical Center.

Senior activities

Known as “The Mile High City,” Denver has much to offer in the way of entertainment and recreation. The Denver Art Museum contains over 68,000 pieces and displays a stunning collection of Native American art, showcasing works from many different tribes of the North American regions. For a stroll through the city replete with shopping and people-watching, visit the 16th Street Mall — a pedestrian mall featuring hundreds of trees, thousands of flowers, and a pathway designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei. Train and history buffs can take a short trip outside the city to the town of Golden to visit the Colorado Railroad Museum, which features over 100 locomotives and cars, as well as photos and historic artifacts, on display in a setting reminiscent of an 1880s rail depot. Living in Denver also offers plenty of access to the great outdoors. If you’d like to take in some of Colorado’s natural beauty, start with the Denver Botanical Gardens, a 24-acre park conveniently located right within the city. Of course, no visit to Colorado would be complete without a trip to the famed Rocky Mountain National Park. Just a short drive outside the city, the park is a world-famous destination encompassing 415 square miles of awe-inspiring scenic beauty.
