Recent reviews of Nursing Homes in Thornton, CO
Brookdale Brighton
4.2

We chose Brookdale Brighton because of the proximity to our home as well as the caring staff members. I felt that the staff truly cared about the residents, they have their best interest at heart and make it a personalized experience. The way Brookdale does it, everything is an extra charge, so it can get expensive fast. Overall I would recommend to others looking.

What are nursing homes?

Nursing homes, also called skilled nursing facilities, provide long-term care for seniors with significant physical or mental health conditions, and short-term care to people recovering from an injury or hospital stay.

  • Help with personal care
  • Rehabilitation care, including physical and speech therapy
  • Mobility assistance
  • Palliative and hospice care
  • Health care services
  • Complimentary transportation
  • 24-hour care and supervision
Complete guide to nursing homes
Disclosure: A Place for Mom refers to "nursing home" here generally as an umbrella term to include assisted living facilities. It is not used to indicate that the facility meets official state requirements for level of care of a skilled nursing facility, as defined in that particular jurisdiction. :D
