Our Community

Balfour Cherrywood Village is among a new generation of communities specifically designed to incorporate recent advances in the understanding and care of residents with memory loss. It is all about our commitment to the individual—treating each resident with the deference, dignity and attention he or she deserves.

Our approach is based on validation therapy rather than reality orientation. This means we tap into the strengths of our residents’ long term memory, their life histories and individual talents, instead of their weaker short term memory. This way, we meet our residents in their world and in their time. It’s most effective in helping individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia build friendships and gives them a real sense of purpose and joy.

The finest dining right at home

We know how important enjoying a meal together is to enriching any relationship, whether with your new friends in the community or entertaining loved ones who come to visit.

We have living rooms and dining rooms with three family style meals a day for social interaction. There’s even a kitchen for supervised baking. We’ve found that those wonderful aromas help release pleasant memories of times past.

Louisville, Colorado

Money Magazine calls Louisville, Colorado the best small town in America

Situated at the base of the Rocky Mountains (and within a few minutes of Boulder and 25 miles of Denver), Louisville, Colorado embodies much of what the people who live in Colorado love. Louisville was ranked first on CNN Money’s “List of America’s Best Small Towns”, for reasons that include an abundance of outdoor activities, a charming town with shops, restaurants, crafts and entertainment.

We’re very proud to call Louisville, Colorado Balfour’s home, and we consider our location another appealing quality of our award-winning community.

Daily Scheduled Events

Like all Balfour communities, we offer a full Life Enrichment program that’s essential for physical and mental well being. These programs are specially designed for people who need memory care, with an emphasis on sensory stimulation.

At Cherrywood Village, we also offer Adult Day Programs to those individuals who benefit from the joys of daily activities with others in a community structure. We offer specialized programs for those with memory loss to stimulate the intellect and engage individuals in success-oriented interactions.

Adult Day participants and their families can choose how often they would like to attend our program. It is flexible, according to what you want and need. Our Day Program hours typically run from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm and include lunch. Although some may choose to participate in a full day’s program, others may come for shorter periods of time.
