We visited MacKenzie Place Fort Collins. We looked at the independent living houses, they seemed to be pretty well built, and there were a lot of amenities that were included. They offered some housecleaning, nurses visits, and across from where the houses is the big main building where the people who have Alzheimer's and who need more care are. I like the fact that once you get in there, if you are failing and you need those facilities, they're right there. They had a workout room, which I was not impressed about because I work out, and it was kind of little. They didn't even have a treadmill -- which I thought was basic -- just because they thought people would fall. They had bicycles, a few little machines, and a couple of weights. They had meals offered. There were several different "restaurants" in the big building. You could go in the evening if you wanted and sit in a bar type of place, and they had a regular restaurant that was very nice. You got this card, and if you wanted to eat at one of these places, you show them your card, and they punch it.
The staff seemed to be very friendly, and we liked what we saw pretty much, but it just wasn't meeting our needs. We're much healthier than the type of person they cater to. My fiance was a little unnerved by the old ladies and gentlemen who were walking around who really needed a lot of help. They treated us very well. I went back to ask some questions, and even though I didn't have an appointment, it was no problem at all.

MacKenzie is expensive, but it is the only place we could easily get in to, and are very pleased with the care we get. The staff is very helpful and caring, and we are very pleased. The food is fine, but overall I wouldn’t complain about their food, and the dining room is fine.

I bought a cottage at MacKenzie Place. It's a two-bedroom cottage. I chose this place because there is no maintenance that I have to do, and I would be able to interact with people in my age group. It would be convenient if I need more services, they are there. I believe they do have activities, but I haven’t explored that very much.
From MacKenzie Place Fort Collins
Money Magazine has named Fort Collins number 1 of its 10 top small cities to live, and for very good reason. Stress-free living, low crime, abundant arts & leisure activities, and fantastic outdoor life have combined to make for one great place to retire. Whether you are looking for active recreational opportunities, a more peaceful pace of life, or a combination of the two, you're sure to find it in Fort Collins. The city boasts six breweries, an ever-changing museum, and a diverse arts & cultural scene. You can always find something interesting to do in Fort Collins!
MacKenzie Place, located in the heart of Fort Collins, 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 offers 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.
