About Balfour Senior Living Communities
Balfour is an award-winning assisted living community near Boulder, Colorado. We maintain a higher standard of excellence than other retirement homes. Our facility only provides the finest for our elderly residents.
Founder Michael K. Schonbrun designed the retirement community based on what his mother, Madeline, enjoyed. His vibrant mother was a feisty New Yorker that loved fashion, fun, traveling, and learning. Madeline read the latest books and audited classes at New York University. His mother also enjoyed eating at the Four Seasons Hotel.
Schonbrun’s mother moved to Colorado after his father passed away. She wanted to live closer to her son and his family. He searched for retirement communities that would allow his mother to live a dignified, independent life.
The executive decided to build his own center. Schonbrun used his experience as CEO of the National Jewish Hospital to develop a caring, comfortable retirement community where seniors could enjoy their Golden Years. Architects designed an innovative community with gorgeous courtyards and common areas. Interior designers created posh, elegant decors inside all residences and apartments. Schonbrun also hired a professional staff that would put seniors’ needs first.
“I’ve developed a few thoughts about senior communities,” the administrator said. “As important as a high-quality physical environment is, I’ve found the single most important attribute of a successful community is an engaged, energized, well-trained staff of caregivers and conscientious compassionate managers.”
Balfour Assisted Living in Boulder only provides seniors with optimal service. Our goal is to help elderly residents live their best lives. We don’t require residents to pay upfront entrance fees like most retirement communities. Our model allows seniors to preserve their wealth and assets. Retirees can rent their apartments and pay for extra services only when they need them.
