My wife only spent 2 months at Brookdale Arvada, but they were by far the best period of her last year. With all the COVID restrictions etc. The staff did a wonderful job at making her days the best they could be. From the CNA’s on the floor to all the support/ management staff, they all had a part in. They not only cared for her, but they worked well with me, to help me handle a very rough time for my family. Many Kudos to this facility.

It is never an easy decision to move a parent into an apartment after the loss of your other parent. The staff (and specifically [name removed]) made the decision easy for our family. My mom's apartment is beautiful and provides all the comforts of home she needs in this new stage of life. The staff is always friendly and helpful when we have questions or concerns. She moved in almost a year ago so we've only know LM under covid protocols and we feel they have handled things fairly well. My mom enjoys all of the activities and has really immersed herself into the community. We couldn't be happier with having my mom live at Lincoln Meadows where we know she is comfortable, safe and enjoying life in a new way since my dad's passing.

This is a great place if your loved one can get up and walk and do a lot of things for themselves. I've only been able to visit twice since we moved in during Covid. Everything that I could see looked clean. It's been hard not getting to see very much of anything firsthand. The care seems to be good based on the phone calls I have with them. They all seem like they're really on top of things. The staff that I've met have been great, and very helpful. Right now they're basically bending over backwards to care for my loved one, even though they're not equipped to handle higher care needs. It has been just amazing. I have to give them a thumbs up on everything really. I've found it to be an affordable place. I just wish my loved one was able to take advantage of everything they offer She took a downhill turn and hasn't been able to experience it fully.

From what I understand, it's probably one of the better options in the area. It certainly has been a good option for us. Things I appreciate about Sunrise at Orchard: It's in close proximity to where I live, and being right on the edge of Greenwood Village, it's in a pretty upscale neighborhood, which is nice. It's also right across the parking lot from the library. In general, the staff is unfailingly kind. They accommodate my loved one's mental health issues. There are a few members of senior staff who are excellent. My loved one's suite is especially attractive. It's in a rotunda portion of the building, so it's like a turret with 180 degree views, and it gets light pretty much all day. Their pet friendly policy is truly genuine, and that's very important to my loved one. The landscaping and architecture are designed to make it very homey. Compared to other facilities, they really strive to make it something that the residents would like. Other facilities are decorated to appeal to a younger demographic, but Sunrise focuses more on resident preferences than on younger family members. For instance, the décor colors are warmer than some of the cooler blue colors that are common in other facilities. Things I think they could improve upon: The meals are set by the corporate offices, and they're not necessarily taking into account what the residents would like. The prepared foods are pretty tasteless, but they do have some fresh fruits and vegetables, so it's possible to eat healthfully if the resident chooses to. It's designed for people who are less mentally aware than my loved one, so she has trouble connecting with other residents who are less mentally sharp. She tends to feel isolated there because there aren't really other residents on the same intellectual level, so we find it necessary to make sure she gets her socialization outside of the facility. We were told there would be a lot of activities, and there are. But there's very little for her to do because what they're offering is not as stimulating. And at this time they're not able to provide field trips like they were promising. I would say that billing and administration can be difficult. There's a lack of clarity regarding charges, and it can be really hard to get information on how the billing works. Months after move-in, we are still having problems understanding our bill. The everyday lower level staff will get away with whatever they are able to. They're very kind, but they tend to be lazy if they can get away with it. It would be difficult to monitor if your parent isn't mentally alert. My thought is they're on par with other facilities in that regard. And that leads me to one general caveat - I don't recommend anybody who cares about their loved one to put them in a facility and trust that they're going to have a good experience without the family staying involved. And that would apply to any place. But on the good side, they've been very conscientious about Covid precautions. And one of the main factors in our decision to come to Sunrise was there was a very reasonable 3-figure buy-in, whereas at other facilities it can be up to 6 figures. Also, the commitment is month-to-month instead of being locked in with a contract. Overall, it has been a good decision for our family.
