From the Provider
MacKenzie Place, located in beautiful Colorado Springs, has been designed and developed around a rather obvious, but commonly overlooked point: Retired folks like to have fun. Lots of fun. Which explains why our activities, travel, dining options, health & wellness programs, and social events are all more fun than you would ever expect to find in a "retirement community."
And with three living choices all on one campus, there's really something for everyone. If you're 55 or older, The Cottages offer a purchase opportunity with access to all of the campus amenities. If you would rather lease with all amenities included, The Terrace will strike your fancy. And if you prefer all the amenities with a little extra, The Arbours are our Assisted Living and Memory Care apartments.
Three beautiful choices. One incredible bouquet. We like to call it Retirement in Full Bloom.

I visited this facility
For seniors who don't want to live alone but would like to have freedom and independence and be very active they should consider MacKenzie Place Active Retirement Community. My grandparents no longer wanted the stress of caring for a home and wanted someone around if they ever needed something but they are still quite active and moved to MacKenzie Place a few years ago. My family and I have visited many times and love it each time. They are well cared for, and they keep their residents very active. The place is beautiful, the staff is amazing and kind and the food is top notch. They make sure to plan a lot for their residents, they are very social but whenever they are under the weather or tired there is someone that can help them with different things. Colorado Springs is a beautiful place and if you or a loved one is looking for assisted living in Colorado you should really consider this great location. My family and I are always impressed with the service, friendlyness and more. My grandparents have nothing but good things to say about it.
Memory Care area...no training, terrible care!
They advertise good, experienced Alzheimer's care. We found this to be totally untrue with the care they provided our family member. The day to day staff has basically no specialized Alzheimer's training. Further they could not deal even with a simple UTI (urinary tract infection) that developed at the facility. The family member had to be hospitalized to treat it even though the private doctor said it could be treated with antibiotics at the facility. Overall, it is a terrible place. Not only do they not have good training, they don't seem to really care. We would not recommend it to other families and we moved our family member.
