Independent Living in Fort Collins, CO

The Winslow invites you to stop in for a tour to experience what The Winslow residents and staff are so proud of.

The front lobby welcomes with smiles from our front desk staff, homemade cookies, and chatter from residents coming and going, some waiting for a Columbine van to take them to their appointment, shopping, or planned activity. As you start looking around you will notice our full library, computer station, beauty salon, and country store. Entering one of our apartments, you'll find more amenities: emergency pull cords, full-size refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, patio or balcony, ample closet space, resident-controlled thermostat, and great bathroom space!

But what about the things you can't "see" on the tour? The wait staff know your personal preferences so well. The housekeepers even know the details of how you want your bed made. Our maintenance supervisor keeps your home in tip-top shape. Don't forget about the friendly call from our front desk to remind you of your upcoming transportation reservation. There is even a nightly security patrol of the building.

It's all included in the rent...transportation, utilities, meals, monthly guest meal credit, housekeeping, maintenance, activities, and more! Our friendly staff is happy to help! Come be a part of The Winslow, a wonderful place to call home.

"Providing care and compassion to all."
