Went in to visit a friend who I have known for many years. This was a lovely facility with wonderful staff. Thank you so much to everyone, I very much enjoyed my stay and my friends are truly happy.

MacKenzie Place is wonderful and surrounded by a nice neighborhood. The staff is wonderful and takes good care of my mom. The food is outstanding. The facility is gorgeous, like a country club. There are lots of activities, but my mom does not do any of them. They also have trips. It is accessible to health care, but you have to drive to go shopping. I will absolutely give them a recommendation.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for all the great things you had to say about Mackenzie Place. We really appreciate you taking the time to let us know how we are doing. It makes it worth all the effort the team puts in when they know what a difference they are making in people's lives. We appreciate your business immensely. Sincerely, Michael Juno-Sturm | Operations Director.

My dad actually moved into MacKenzie Place on Tuesday. My dad is a tough customer, so there are a lot of challenges. Number one being that he previously had 24/7 home health care because he is a fall risk, so we transitioned by having the caregivers continue to be there -- not to provide service but to tell him, "You got to push your button if you need something." We've been doing this since Tuesday, and last night was the last night that they were there, so he is learning to push his button. He loves it there, and he loves the food. My dad is a big person, and he loves to cook, so food is important to him. He is anxious to start his physical therapy there. They do provide a daily schedule of all the activities, so they encourage them to do some of that. He is meeting all kinds of new people, so he is happy about that. MacKenzie Place is right across the street from where my mom used to be. It is in his neighborhood, so it is kind of home to him.

The reason I chose MacKenzie Place was because it seemed more alive; there were people in the living room interacting with each other. It was very welcoming. They have wonderful activities like trips and food, and I have a condition where I am on a special diet and I can’t eat the food that they have here. I have an aide who comes in, helps me, and does my meals. It was lovely. I would definitely recommend it to my friends. Plus the staff is very caring, friendly, and love their job, and they do a great job.

I visited MacKenzie Place. It was very nice. The staff seemed to be caring. In fact, I had a friend there, and she was very satisfied there. I would recommend this place. The apartments were very spacious. My friend had a two-bedroom apartment.

I would move in at MacKenzie Place myself. It was a lovely place, but expensive. They had all the facilities including a swimming pool inside, and the meals catered whether in your room or not, exercise equipment, and a physical therapist onsite; there wasn't anything lacking there. The atmosphere and layout was exceptional. The location was great, we had a meal there, and the food was very good. Instead of an apartment, it was more of a community type of thing because they offer housing as well and you could actually move into a house, a single unit, as well as apartment type thing. They had lots of activities and buses to take people different places.

My dad is on the waiting list at MacKenzie Place. My impression was that they have thought of everything like the apartments. He’s going into a senior living apartment at this point and then as needed will graduate to assisted living. The 2-bedrooms vary in size from just under a thousand sq. ft. up to almost 1300 sq. ft. They have some 3-bedroom, 2-bath apartments there and then they have the smaller ones. The one he wants is about 1200 sq. ft. and is a 2-bedroom, 2-bath with a kitchen, a lundry room, washer and dryer, which was very nicely appointed. All the apartments have 4 thicknesses of drywall between the apartments to control sound. In the event of a fire, people are supposed to stay in their apartments and not evacuate until they are specifically told to do so. I was very impressed with that. They have a country club atmosphere. The energy in the place is very good. It’s very upbeat, optimistic, and enthusiastic. The sales guy was excellent. He went to great lengths to explain how the scooters fall over too easily and how it’s very easy for people to get injured, so they prefer to see their residents in the more stable electric wheelchairs. We were invited to stay for dinner and the food was excellent. They do full portions and half portions. The half portions were amazingly large. My sister, my dad, my stepmom and I had dinner there and all four of us ordered half portions and were full after dinner. We had maple and peach-glazed pork loin with a vegetable and a carbohydrate. There are three restaurants in this place. There is a bar/bistro that’s open from like 10am or 11am until 9 at night. It is open all the time so there are things like sandwiches and you can go have a drink with your friends and have a glass of wine. There’s the main dining room for the residential part, and then there is a third dining room down in the assisted living area so they have a choice as well. They talk at great lengths about all the activities that are going on both in MacKenzie Place, and also all the things that get scheduled every month outside of MacKenzie Place like going to Denver to see a play where you sign up to go as a group. Transportation is provided and all the resident has to do is buy the ticket to the event. They have all kinds of crafts and knitting. They have a fantastic fitness play center and a swimming pool. They have a salt water hot tub or a spa. They also have a brain exercise program an hour a day for 8 weeks. They have get-togethers, dances and music.

I feel MacKenzie Place was a little bit more complete than the other facility. The staff was very polite and the place is clean. The only thing that was negative to me was that the lack of space that they had for people but that’s just secondary to the fact that they were a good facility. The rooms were well-maintained, spacious, clean and open. They offer classes, lots of physical and mentally stimulating activities.

HORRIBLE! You won't get the care that you pay for. Found pills on my grandmas floor ($600 just for pill management) than she got really sick and didn't go for her meals for 2 days and nobody called us, she was dying of renal failure and nobody thought to pay attention. Maybe we didn't pay for that! Than to top it off...they lost her! She was in a public bathroom all night when they were supposed to check on her every night at 8. Who signed off that they saw her? She is now in a new facility where she gets the care she deserves! And its $2000 less! If your moving your family member here, make sure they don't need assistance! You will pay a lot for nothing! Don't be fooled by the beauty and the good food cause thats all you'll get! The cleaning lady and the wait staff pay more attention to the residents than the nurse staff.

Our son found McKenzie Place for us. We chose it because of its location, cost and amenities. We lived in Colorado Springs for 4 years so we have family there. It’s an assisted living retirement complex of multi level family residences and duplexes. They have all the things you look forward to in retirement. It's also close to Colorado Springs Country Club, dining and recreation facilities and so forth. We look forward to making the move when the time comes.

MacKenzie Place Retirement Community is quite near where we live. We had a tour there and it was very nice. We really liked that facility because it was small. It was laid out really nice. That was the one that we would have chose if we chose one. The staff were very helpful and very knowledgeable. We ate lunch there and the food was very good.

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.

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.

MacKenzie Place was very organized and very clean. The person who assisted me during the tour was outstanding. The dining area was also outstanding. They had very personable service, and the food was good. There were people playing cards and doing aerobics. They had a salon, too.

We have been to Mackenzie Place, and it was excellent. The only reason we turned it down is that we did not care for the area in which it was located. It was beautifully appointed, the food was excellent, and the service was wonderful. The people were great; they were most gracious. But we decided that we did not want to move to Colorado Springs, weather-wise. Our daughter at one time lived there, and now she is farther away; we felt that is too far between the 2 of them. Three hours over the snow covered mountains is not a lot of fun. They have everything that you would probably enjoy. They had a swimming pool and a patio, they had activities and two dining areas, and the dining areas were not restricted as far as time is concerned. There are certain meals at certain times, but you were not restricted as to when, where, how, and why you entered either dining area. The apartment that we stayed in was well-appointed, and it was fairly new. The kitchen area was absolutely sparking with new appliances and new counters, and it appeared well taken care of. From what we saw, it was quite desirable, and the main reason that we decided against it was its location. If we could find something that is similar at another location, we would probably look very seriously at it because the price was right.

MacKenzie Place Colorado Springs was very inviting. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. I enjoyed my tour, and it was on top of my list because of their cottages. I had lunch, and the food was terrific.

MacKenzie Place Colorado Springs was very nice. It’s almost all brand new, so it’s very well maintained. The rooms were very well sized and beautifully kept. The staff was really personable and very helping. Their dining area was beautiful. It appeared that they would have plenty of activities that my in-laws would be interested in. They have set fees, but if you get more meals than what your food budget is, then the price is more, so it didn’t really cover all your food. If you chose to buy a more expensive meal because their dining area was more like a restaurant, then you could go over what your food was. It was a bit deceptive, I guess.

Provider Response

Thank you for considering MacKenzie Place, we appreciate the feedback about our community! We’re proud of the home we have created for our residents, thank you for noticing that it’s the nicest in Colorado Springs. We are also very proud of the restaurant quality services and amenities offered, so I sincerely apologize if our dining services program was a bit confusing. It is our commitment to provide the best dining experience for our residents, which is why we don’t believe in the “one size fits all” approach to senior living dining. As with any restaurant, we value choice, whether that is choosing a Ruben sandwich with house-made corned beef on fresh baked artisan bread or splurging for a filet mignon, or poached halibut with a lemon caper sauce, having a restaurant style dining program facilitates our ability to offer a wide variety of culinary selections. We wish you and your in-laws all the best in their search for a community and would love to answer any further questions you have about our dining services program.

MacKenzie Place Colorado Springs was awesome. Everything about it was great. It was a newer facility. It was like a dry dock cruise ship. The food was excellent. The service attention was awesome. Mark was very professional. They were willing to show us around and answer our questions. They let us see what was available. There were people in the beauty shop. There were people playing cards. There were men playing Wii bowling. There was a movie theater. It was a healthy environment to be in.

MacKenzie Place was a little more expensive; you had to have money to live there, but it was very nice. The rooms that I wanted to live in were very nice, and the chefs were excellent. The overall atmosphere kind of gave me a calming effect.

The people were very nice at MacKenzie Place. I was impressed how the lady that gave me the tour seemed to know everybody that we passed. She knew personal things about them and was very interactive with the clientele. They offer two meals a day. They get a discount off the menu, but it was like a regular restaurant menu, probably a little more extensive menu than others. They have workout rooms and personal trainers. It seemed nice.

About MacKenzie Place Colorado Springs

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.
