Greetings From Wind Crest

Denver Retirement Living With Scenic Mountain Views

Set on 84 acres in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, Wind Crest is a vibrant senior living community for people 62-plus. We’re surrounded by the natural beauty of Colorado, including the Highline Canal nature trail and Rocky Mountain vistas. We’re also just 15 miles southwest from the hustle and bustle of downtown Denver.

We offer independent living, plus on-site assisted living, long-term nursing care, memory care, and short-term rehabilitation in our continuing care neighborhood, Mill Vista Lodge.

Hear a resident describe the freedom he enjoys living at the community.

The Wind Crest Story

We opened in 2007 to meet the Denver area’s growing demand for senior living and continuing care. Our first apartment homes sold quickly, and our community continues to grow with the recent addition of new residence buildings such as McHenry’s Crossing, Parry Landing, and The High Line Overlook. Amenities include Burton’s, Timberline Tavern, the TV studio, and the Arts and Enrichment Center.

Currently, our gated, 84-acre campus includes more than 1,008 independent living apartment homes, two clubhouses, and a continuing care neighborhood. At last count, our dedicated staff totals 740!
