The Homestead at Lakewood is just what you would imagine – a homestead made up a hacienda and a cluster of red tile-roofed cottages with people who enjoy a comfortable, more relaxed style of living, yet The Homestead is centrally located and close to medical services, shopping and churches. The southwestern-style architecture accents the 4.5 acres of mature landscaping and courtyards that have graced this former equestrian property for years.
We, The Homestead owners and staff, are Colorado residents and recognize that most of us prefer the “low-key” life style provided by a smaller community where it is easy to get acquainted and form friendships – while still maintaining privacy.
Our Southwestern-style cottages (for independent seniors) are grouped together into three neighborhoods, consisting of eight cottages each, with a landscaped courtyard in the center of each neighborhood.
At the Homestead, a caregiver lives on site, plus a trained staff is available 24 hours a day. The cottages have a state-of-the-art emergency call system that links you to immediate response from our health service staff.
Those of you selecting to reside in The Homestead’s Assisted Living Apartments will have a wide range of services to choose from. You and your Resident Service Director will choose the options that fit your needs – with the goal of maximizing your independence.
The Homestead at Lakewood was designed by professionals in senior housing. Every aspect of this community was planned with your comfort and independence in mind. Our staff a The Homestead has spent many years working with seniors in the Denver Metro area. You can have peace of mind knowing that we will strive to make your new home a comfortable transition from your previous home.
Rather than large intimidating common areas, The Homestead has two intimate dining rooms (each with the original fireplaces), a private dining room, a cozy library/music room, a community room (with large screen TV) for activities and a barber and beauty salon. Situated between the cottages and the hacienda is a lovely flagstone courtyard, complete with a fountain.
With our full-time Activities Director, The Homestead at Lakewood offers a wide variety of opportunities for socialization. For outing and doctors appointments, our van is available; you will be escorted to our doctor’s check-in desk and be picked up there for your return trip home.
