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.

Apartment homes starting at $4,700 per month.



The comforts of home with the amenities of a fine resort

With the extensive amenities offered at Balfour Senior Living, free time to pursue interests and hobbies will abound. Apartment homes are maintained by Balfour inside and out. There’s housekeeping, transportation, valet parking, concierges services, an emergency response system, and a hand-selected and cross-trained staff that is second to none. And for personal pampering, there’s a heated salt water pool, steam room, and a full-service salon and spa with fully appointed lounges for men and women.

Not up for heading out to the city? Stay at home and take advantage of all that Balfour offers within the community. Take an art class. Attend a lecture by a professor. Try a new fitness class. Sample wines at a tasting in the Chautauqua Theater. Enjoy a meal in one of our on-site restaurants that rival the best in the city. With over 200 Life Enrichment programs per month, the most difficult decision will be which event to attend each day.

In Balfour’s Independent Living program, the emphasis is on “Independence” with a capital I.

Daily Scheduled Events & Activities

A full calendar every day of the month, because life should be lived to the fullest

We know from experience that social interaction is essential to good health. So we’ve created a Life Enrichment Program for assisted living that is second to none.


In order to protect the health of our residents and to align with state health recommendations, we have needed to curtail many of our group activities.  We are still offering wellness activities but on a more personalized yet socially distant basis.  Once the threat of COVID-19 has passed we will add back our link to Life Enrichment daily activities.
