Our Community

Skilled Nursing at Balfour focus on the abilities of every resident while providing a concierge level of skilled nursing services with suites, private and semi-private rooms. Our philosophy focuses on an optimal level of self-care and independence for each individual. Throughout the day and into the evening, residents participate in activities that provide sensory stimulation and encourage the use of skills.

The Balfour staff is specially trained to work in an interdisciplinary fashion—providing nursing care and therapeutic programs including rehabilitation services.

Our residents are individuals first and foremost, and their health, happiness and peace of mind are our main priority.

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.
