I visited this facility

New Dawn is a straight memory care assisted living facility, located in a commercial part of Aurora--about 20 minutes north of downtown Denver. It can be a little hard to find, and parking can be tough. It's a new facility made up of three cottages, with 16 people to a cottage, enclosed within a courtyard. The rooms are all private--very nice, with showers in all the rooms. It's also unusual in that about 70 percent of the residents are men. The staff is quite good, well trained in offering memory care. And the ratio of residents to staff is 4:1--that's good. They're especially good at dealing with difficult dementia behaviors. There's a nurse on staff 24 hours a day. Also, there's a leadership team member in each cottage. The food is good. It's prepared in one of the cottages and delivered to the other two. It's served family style. The activities are also good. There's a full-time, 7-day-a week person there. And they offer arts and crafts activities in each cottage and in the common areas. New Dawn is also one of the more high-tech facilities I've seen. They offer a webcam, so family members can see their loved ones, good computer access for residents who are still able to use a computer, and a GPS tracking system for all the residents.
