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.

Sunrise of Pinehurst in Denver, CO
4.9

The staff members and care services are better than 5 stars, and the activities are limited but give the circumstances they are really trying their best. We do think it is a good value for the cost. Moving our loved one from independent living to memory care was a very difficult transition, but Sunrise at Pinehurst made that transition as easy as possible for our loved one and our family. Their staff training was the number one reason we chose this community, they really show care and empathy.

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.
