Westhaven Apartment Homes in Lakewood, CO

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.

The Summit in Lakewood, CO

I'm not accustomed to living in an apartment, but other than that, I'm getting along good. I'm still working and don't really associate with people much. But the people I have associated with are friendly and nice. And management seems to be on top of everything. It's a clean place, and the apartments are nice. It's a relaxing place for me to come home to and unwind.
