The Community

Drawing from the majesty of America’s great National Park tradition, our Louisville independent living communities offer gracious residential living with a distinctively western flavor.

Balfour’s independent living communities place great emphasis on vibrant experiences where one can make friends and lead rich, spirited lives. Travel and book clubs, gardening and current events groups and cultural excursions are just a few of the more than 200 social, creative and learning opportunities residents can choose from each month. At Balfour, independent living means award-winning surroundings, a complete array of amenities and the peace of mind that comes from a full continuum of care.

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.
