My mother is at The Courtyard at Lakewood, and it's been very good. The staff is very attentive, kind, friendly, and they've gotten for us anything I've asked for. She has a one-bedroom apartment. They have Bingo, a fitness room, a therapist that does exercises with the clients, poker nights, ice cream socials, a big game room, puzzle room, movie room, library, laundry room, and a store. Meals are included in her rent, but she has a full kitchen.

The Courtyard is situated in a quiet neighborhood near an RTD light rail station. The facilities are adequate and there are varied daily activities. The staff is friendly, but there is constant turnover. Meals are too often only mediocre in quality. Unfortunately, management is predatory. They are not forthcoming about their pricing, and annual rent increases are arbitrary and exorbitant. Do not stay here There are other places that are friendlier and more affordable.

My mom has moved into The Courtyard At Lakewood. It is great. The place is clean. They have lots of services and activities for the residents. They just switched management, but they seemed to be good too. The living quarters are big. They have so many different activities. They have anything from poker to pool to movies to Wii bowling. They have activities throughout the whole day. The staff members have been very good.

The Courtyard At Lakewood was very nice. The staff members were wonderful. I would have gone there if it was closer, but it just wasn't. However, I really liked it. The menu looked good. The apartments were very nice. The only problem with the apartment was the long walk. I'm on a walker so I can't walk for very long.

I loved The Courtyard at Lakewood, but it was very expensive. I lived there for a month. The food was fantastic and so was my apartment. I did exercises, bingo, and Pie Mondays, which was fun. It started out being pumpkin pie and then they started doing all kinds of pies. I really liked that place. They took the residents gambling at Black Hawk once a month. Every Wednesday, they go to Wal-Mart and Walgreens. They had a wondeful salad cart with raisins, nuts, and dried cranberries. The chef was so nice. We had daily trivia questions at the dinner table. Randy, Georgina, and Mark were all really good and always available. I liked the people there.

We ate at the Courtyard. They put us with the residents’ table, so we got to talk to them and get a feel for how they felt about the place. The person who was giving us the tour had left us with them just so that we could talk privately, which was very nice. The food was good. We thought their maintenance was a little lacking. There was a limited number of elevators which made it a long way for the residents sometimes during busy times. I had used a rest room, and they were out of toilet paper. It wasn’t dirty, but it felt like it had been a while since somebody had come in there and done anything with it.

The Courtyard at Lakewood's staff is very helpful and friendly. My mom's really happy and really likes it. It's convenient since she has a dog that she's able to take out to go potty. The room is well kept up and a really nice size for her. They have activities, and my mom is starting to get involved in. The food is OK.

The Courtyard was OK, but I didn’t think it was as well kept as the other facility I visited, and the staff wasn’t as friendly. They didn’t seem to be prepared; the person we had the appointment with wasn’t there, and they never bothered to pass the information on that we were going to be visiting as they were not expecting us. It didn’t impress us at all. It’s not clean, older, and not much space for the amenities that they had. They had a very large room that they use for everything, and they just change furniture around if they needed it. They are doing art classes, exercise, and bible study, and they use the dining room for a lot of different things.

Provider Response

Thanks Douglas228176, for leaving us this response and feedback. We appreciate you taking the time to visit, and to share with us your impressions of your visit. We are very chagrined, however, to hear of the missed appointment, and want to extend to you a sincere, heartfelt apology for that very obvious miss on our part. Please, accept our apologies and know this is not reflective of the very high standards we set for ourselves and for each other. We will use this as an opportunity to improve, and would like to thank you once again for sharing this experience with us.

We visited The Courtyard At Lakewood. It’s a very nice place. It’s very accommodating. The staff was very good. They’re very gracious. Their rooms were adequate. They’re large enough to accommodate most kinds of furniture. They had a circus thing going on. They had entertainment for their guests.

The Courtyard was very institutional, and even the courtyard that it’s named after is a concrete courtyard; it looks like a prison yard. They’ve got a few garden beds for the residents to do some gardening in, but there’s no other landscaping at all. The staff seems nice. The whole facility looked like a renovated factory to me; I just don’t like that. The rooms themselves seemed to be large; I guess it was one of the few facilities that have full kitchen in each room. It seemed to be clean as well.

I was pleased with The Courtyard, and I thought that was the solution for my mother. It looked very nice; the people seemed very nice, and everything there was very nice. It really appealed to me; however, the whole decision has kind of been taken out of our hand. She had to go to the emergency room, has been admitted to a nursing home, and will end up in long term care. We discussed the activities -- although I didn’t see a lot on our visit -- but I was impressed with all of it. The dining area looked fine.

The Courtyard at Lakewood was nice, a little run-down, but they were in the process of doing some renovations. The apartments were pretty large with a living room, a dining area, and a nice bedroom with a patio off of it. The average age of the residents was 85, which is just OK for me.

We toured The Courtyard at Lakewood for my father. Some of the outdoor facilities, like the courtyard and the garden areas, were nice. It was a bit of an older facility, but it was near the light rail, so that was kind of appealed to us. The room seemed to be nice and clean and would have been adequate for my father. We only met with one staff member, and she was very nice.

We enjoyed our meal at the Courtyard. The residents there were the friendliest of any facility I've visited. The staff was friendly and helpful. The apartments were just what I was looking for. I won't be moving there because it's so far from where my children live. My son works 5+1/2 days a week. He says he doesn't want to spend his day off sitting in traffic. I'll move closer to my children's home.

I visited The Courtyard at Lakewood. The place was pretty affordable, but it was kind of run down and not well maintained. Their staff gave me an uneasy feeling; they didn’t seem to care. The layout of the building would not work for my mother at all. It was really big. I think they need to improve on the maintenance of the place.

Provider Response

Hi Tim, thank you for taking the time to rate and review our community. We regret to hear that you were not completely satisfied with your experience. We hope to get a second chance to show you how great our staff and leadership is. Thank you

I thought the Courtyard felt homey, hospitable, and friendly and had lots of activities. The dining room was spacious and cafeteria-style, but comfortable. The living accommodations were really nice. The rooms had nice hardwood floors, weere spacious, and even included balconies. I felt my father-in-law would be comfortable there.

I visited The Courtyard At Lakewood for my father. It was a nice facility. The people were kind; it just wasn't the right fit for my family. On the whole, it was a nice facility. When I was there, they were very nice and very courteous. It seemed like a very nice place. They had a few activities there, but I can't remember what they were. I'm giving it a 3, and that's based on my father's needs.

At The Courtyard, the prices were consistent with the view. They had steam laundry, a billiards room, and a library. It's expensive.

I liked it very well. The single room that I like is the most expensive one. I don't know if I can afford it. Another thing is I am having a lot of pain lately so I don't know whether I can stay in one of those apartments. I have eaten there once, and the food was very good. The room that I saw and liked could probably sit most of my friends and made me feel like home. But the rate is a bit more than I can handle with my medical. The staff was all very friendly. They have underground parking. They have a whole month full of activities to do. It looks like they are very well organized.

Everybody is friendly at the Courtyard, it’s a nice place, and they’re fixing it up. The apartments are nice and adequate. It’s very close to the light rail, and they have a bus that takes you if you want to go. I was very impressed with the staff. I’ve eaten there twice, and the food is fine. I went to the pottery class, and it was fine.

It's great here at The Courtyard Lakewood. The people here are very friendly, very warm, and welcoming. I've been here about 6 weeks now. The staff is fabulous. Anything that they can do to help has been great. The food is pretty good. My goal is to lose weight so I can get my knees redone. I've lost 11 lbs., and I'm not starving. The rooms are fabulous. I wish I had done this sooner because I retired in 2010. It's just your chance to get out and to meet people and not be all by yourself. The upkeep is wonderful. They have a staff who comes in adnd oes light housekeeping. The entertainment director is a darling. She does everything she can to try to get the folks involved. They have everything from crafts, Wii bowling, pool playing, puzzles, movies and popcorn, they challenge other communities to bean bag baseball, and they have trips to casinos or out to lunch. There's a huge variety of activity. The director here works really hard to keep people active and interested. The people are so fabulous. The oldest person here would be 105. Probably the youngest person, who is a Navy veteran, who was injured, and so he's here in a wheelchair, and he's just adorable, I think he's probably about 47.

The Courtyard at Lakewood is a very nice place. It is older than the other facility, but it has the same kind of amenities. The apartments are very nice. They have a kitchen, refrigerator, and stove, so you can cook if you choose to, though I don't know why you would want to because food is part of the cost. Food is good; they have a good chef. They also have a good marketing staff. There were a lot of activities for the residents, like theme-type parties. They might have people who come in and provide entertainment, like different music groups, jazz, or luau-type things. They did have all kinds of different activities. They have people who come in and do haircutting, and they also have a shuttle, which is part of monthly. Aside from that, they have below-ground parking if you have a car.

I like Courtyard At Lakewood. It was just in the wrong location and town for me. The staff was courteous, but I didn't get a chance to know them very well because I only visited. I saw a one-bedroom there and it had plenty of rooms. Overall, Courtyard at Lakewood was a nice place.

My husband and I stayed at The Courtyard at Lakewood for only two weeks because it was not an assisted living facility. A woman named Marie talked to us and she was very convincing. I thought it was an assisted living facility and she made me believe that. She told me that someone would take me to my doctor's appointments and I learned that a couple of days a week, a van took people around. But if you got on the van and got to an appointment, you stayed on. It was not being picked up so you would get to an appointment and brought home which was one thing that I needed. It was an independent living facility with meals. It was not what my husband and I needed, and then I found out she left. The apartments were small and the bathrooms were also too small to get around in. It was very dangerous. It was awful and a nightmare. They should not lie about what they provided and how they provided it.

Provider Response

Hi Martha, thank you for your review. We are not an assisted living community, nor do we advertise that we are. We apologize for any confusion or miscommunication that may have occurred in this instance. We hope to get a second chance to show you how great our leadership is. Thank you
