Balfour at Riverfront Park – Reviews
After visiting a number of different independent and assisted living facilities, we realized that Balfour Riverfront stood out in terms of homeyness and comfort, especially with the care and detail of the interior design. The residents we met were incredibly nice and very welcoming. Support staff were all friendly and helpful. The other thing we noticed is that much of the stall adjusted to talk slower or louder to compensate for the older residents. Food has been excellent according to my mother. While she is still trying to adjust, she seems to be doing okay but is still having trouble with lifeloop (close but could still have a better user interface and there could be a little more computer support for the less savvy
From the outside, it looks like a 5-star hotel; inside, it feels like it, with staff and help alike. We began our search for mom, and had heard of The Balfour (at Riverfront Park). When we came up, we didnt think we could afford it, but figured it was worth asking. We are so glad we did, and it was priced similar to other places. Mom was hesitant but once here, she has been welcomed in like family. She is respected in her space and time, though safety has been and is high on their list in taking great care of her. She is so happy her cat could join her, bringing much comfort and company. The Balfour has been great in communicating with both my brother and I, keeping us abreast of changes, with mom or the facility at large. They have a new and easy app to continue the great communication: I can order maintenance for mom, so she doesnt have to, and its taken care of. So. Easy. The food is really good, and varies enough for moms enjoyment. They also have the beautiful Peacock Room for, what I call, elegant fine dining. Anytime family or friends come to visit, we all meet for a meal here with mom, feeling luxurious in our dining without having to go out, convenient to all. I cant recommend this place enough, and can say your family member will be well taken care of here like our mom is. Or, if you are choosing it for Independent Living, you get the convenience of this beautiful facility, all its benefits, while being in the heart of Downtown Denver; you cant be the location, or the energy of the city. We are so grateful for The Balfour, and what they provide for our mom at this stage in her life. They have had major staff overhaul and changes these last two years. We have seen many friends go, and that was unfortunate; but, many new ones coming in are very pleasant. The cost has gone up every year 5%, which is quite a hike, so be ready when planning your familys budget.
My wife, Lynn, and I have lived at Balfour Riverfront Park for over 3 years, and we love it. It is a wonderful community, great residents, wonderful staff and administration. Things are not always perfect, but where are they? And while Balfour was a nice place to live when we got here, conditions have improved greatly over the 3 years. We have a Residents Advisory Committee, and the administration listens. The staff, top-to-bottom are personally committed to excellent service and they deliver it. When there are problems, they are usually handled in a timely manner. Food service, housekeeping, maintenance, concierge, all excellent. And when there are issues, communication is open and honest. This was a good place to live when we got here, and it has gotten much better. It has also become a much better place to work, judging by the performance, attitude and retention of employees. Lynn and I made a very satisfactory choice to live here.
Ill never forget the anxiety I experienced when it came time to place my mom and dad in an independent living facility. Imagine how grateful I was when I discovered Balfour at Riverfront Park. The facility is more reminiscent of a Ritz Carlton hotel than a senior living center. My parents loved it – the activities, the chauffeur-driven autos, meals at the Peacock Court or in their home or at restaurants on Larimer Square. It brought me great peace of mind. Sadly, mom passed and, shortly after that, dad moved to assisted living. Balfours staff – and their pandemic protocols – have kept dad safe and well cared-for. As of today, hes had both of his vaccine shots at Balfour and were looking forward to resuming in-person visits. Experiences at both independent living and assisted living were top-notch, particularly during the pandemic.
I have been in the Senior Living industry for over 13 years and have over 30 years of restaurant experience. I am so fortunate to be a part of the Balfour Riverfront Park team. The last year has been MORE than challenging with the covid pandemic but with the wise, judicious and unwavering leadership from our Executive Director we have been able to keep our community staff and Residents safe. We are blessed to say that we have not lost anyone while other Senior Living communities have had multiple unfortunate tragic losses. Our company invested a huge amount of money to covid test every employee and Resident each week to ensure we would not have an outbreak in our community. As well, we are vaccinating all Residents and Staff in the next few weeks. Working at Balfour is more than a job, its being part of a family. We care so much about each and every Resident and are able to cater our services in a very personal way. While nothing in life is ever perfect, the way the leaders of the community collaborate and communicate is nothing less than impressive! The service industry is alway plagued with staffing challenges but in our community we all pitch in to help each other when staffing issues arise or there is a Resident that needs support. We are aligned by a common goal (taking care of our Residents) and we make it happen. If you are interested in working for a great company or are looking to move to a home where you will be treated as family, Balfour Riverfront Park is the place for you.
This building has done amazingly well through the pandemic. Good communication, great safety and health, satisfied residents and families. So relieved that everyone has stayed safe. Great job!
Beautiful community, caring employees and an outstanding location. Absolutely recommend for anybodys needs!
Balfour Independent Living at Riverfront Park in Denver is a mixed bag. When you walk into Balfour, your breath is taken away by the exquisitely designed common areas. The five star decor is beautiful and elegant, bright and welcoming. The apartments are nothing to rave about, but every inch of the common areas from the main living room to the dining room to the library, and even the salon, are pure cheerful delight. The three star service, on the other hand, is disappointing and unpredictable. The members of the upper management team are disconnected to the residents and to each other. They dont know what they are doing because the turn over rate is off the charts so they are always new (or absent because their positions have not yet been filled). Communication amongst the different teams and with the residents is lacking. The right hand doesnt know what the left hand is doing leading to inefficiency, chaos, and levels of incompetence that are just down right unacceptable in a place such as Balfour that is intended to be of such high caliber. Non management members, however, are wonderful, accommodating, compassionate, and the best part of what Balfour has to offer and in some ways make up for what the upper management team is incapable of accomplishing. Unfortunately and sadly, their turn over rate is also very high. It appears that Balfour has not figured out how to show appreciation for their Riverfront employees enough to keep them happy and on the job. With a turn over of four chefs in less than a two year period, the dining room service along with its food quality (other than the to die for pastries) is less than mediocre and has been an ongoing never ending disaster. For a facility that sells itself as a five star community and charges exorbitant fees to match the five star promise, their residents deserve better than three star service. With all of that being said, Balfour is dog friendly and centrally located. If you or your parents are culturally oriented and consider pets part of your family, then you cannot beat the dog loving environment and the downtown location. The best part about Balfour are the residents and the supportive camaraderie they share. Sure, you could rent a beautiful unit in a full service apartment building for half the cost but you wouldnt find the friendships and companionships that you find amongst the Balfour residents. For that reason, Balfour is worth a shot. Just understand that the service isnt as pretty as the decor and be prepared for a lot of frustrations and disappointments along the way.

Balfour has been my home away from home and place of employment for over two years now. My fellow team members are amazing, kind and compassionate people who give their all to the residents and to Balfour. It is both a beautiful establishment and environment to work in and I am proud to be at this community.
Absolute top notch establishment. My parents love their new apartment! The staff is friendly and attentive. Excellent housekeeping and restaurants. So happy my parents found this excellent place to live!
Unbelievable community. Incredible staff. Never see a resident thats not smiling and happy. This tells me all I need to know about a retirement facility! Highly recommend!
The Balfour Riverfront is a beautiful facility in downtown Denver, centrally located to all that Denver has to offer. There are so many beautifully decorated common rooms for residents to enjoy. Whether its the heated indoor pool, workout room, historic train depot, or the bar, movie room, one can find a quiet place to read, have coffee, or visit with a friend. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The new head of nursing in assisted living has greatly improved care, especially for those residents in need of higher-level care. The Balfour isnt perfect, but the staff is open to feedback and responds quickly to concerns of its residents. I would highly recommend the Balfour for your loved ones. It is not only a beautiful, comfortable safe place for your loved ones, but it is a nice place to visit for family members and minutes away from Wholefoods, restaurants, shopping, and Commons Park. Whats not to like?
Although the leasing staff knew that we were not immediately looking to move, we were treated very well. Over a delicious lunch we had all of our questions answered in a straight- forward manner. The tour of the facility was very thorough including both independent and assisted living spaces as well as the luxurious public areas. Balfour Riverfront Park is in an ideal location for people who do not necessarily want to be outside the city. Thank you, Bryan and Carla. Renate Hull
A great facility with the most gorgeous interior. The service is hit or miss but overall the fellow residents are wonderful and the location is great.
Beautiful facility with great amenities! Could not ask for a better location. We loved the attention to detail in all of the decorating.
A very beautiful building. Lovely place to call home. The staff are kind, helpful, go above and beyond for the residents. It is expensive, but like anything, you get what you pay for.
The facility is beautiful and I like the people they are friendly and care about there residents. My mother in law says the food service can improve but overall she likes it here just fine
I love visiting my grandmother in law at The Balfour. The place is beautiful and the valet parking convenient. The staff is also great. I like eating at The Peacock restaurant. The service at the restaurant has really improved but the new chef has yet to wow me. The food and service today at the 3rd floor restaurant was horrible! What is going on?
Great people, dining experience was amazing very welcoming staff.
Beautiful community with super friendly staff and people.
Wonderful Staff Delicious Dining. Great location
Beautiful location. Staff and management focused on customer satisfaction and ensuring best of care service!
