Bethesda Gardens Thornton is one of the very best in Colorado retirement communities. Located in the North Denver suburbs, we are a faith-based assisted living and memory care community, which means we are devoted to service and inspired care in a warm and homey atmosphere. That’s why people choose us: our mission of service and our intimate community.
Our mission at Bethesda Gardens Thornton Assisted Living and Memory Care is to serve seniors by enriching their physical,
emotional and spiritual health in our intimate community.
Since 1959, our parent company Bethesda Senior Living Communities has been providing quality service to our country’s aging population, and continues to serve with excellence through our independent, assisted living and memory care communities and through benevolent outreach.
As a faith-based organization, we embrace a philosophy of selfless service. For us, faith is more than any particular religious tradition. Rather, we serve seniors and our communities through care, advocacy, respect and virtuous business practices.
Our highly experienced team, available 24 hours a day, makes sure our residents have everything they need, from housekeeping to wellness and social programs. Residents—and their families—enjoy our warm, inviting, and secure environment. Find out more about our assisted living services.
Our apartment memory care neighborhood provides intimate care, supervision and monitoring, as well as specialized activities to keep the mind sharp. We offer a 24-hour secure environment with all private apartments and a serene courtyard. We strive to help residents engage in life through the development of personal connections with other residents and family members.
We pride ourselves on our manageable size, our sense of community in Thornton, and our tranquil atmosphere. But as part of a Colorado-based senior living organization with national reach, Bethesda Gardens Thornton has all the resources to meet our residents’ needs, and the ability to make decisions right here where you live. Read more about our parent company and our faith-based mission, including ways we give back.
Bethesda Gardens Thornton residents enjoy a well-connected social life, from the restaurant-style dining to our sun-soaked courtyards and patios to our cultural outings. But residents also enjoy the independence and autonomy of having their own private apartments. Learn more about our services and amenities.

We provide long-term and short-term assisted living, as well as memory care for residents with most stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia. We have a well-trained team of professionals dedicated to serving all the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our residents. Our goal is to provide a stimulating environment where residents get to know each other and our team by name.
We have deep roots in Colorado. Our parent company, Bethesda Senior Living Communities, is committed to long-term care. While some companies view their facilities as profit-making investments that may be bought and sold when convenient, we are a small, not-for-profit community, meaning our investment is in our residents—now and in the future.
Assisted living becomes appropriate when an otherwise active senior begins having a little trouble getting proper nutrition, maintaining the household or personal care routines, or remembering to take medications. We are staffed 24 hours a day with licensed nurses, medication aides and friendly support team. Together, we ensure our assisted living residents have the help they need when they need it. We provide our residents with maximum privacy and autonomy in an attentive and caring environment.
Nursing homes are not the catch-all solution they once were considered to be, primarily because most people do not want to be in one. Nursing homes are designed to provide patients with ongoing, intensive medical and nursing services. And to do this well they must be both intrusive and pricey. For seniors whose health has deteriorated to the point where acute medical intervention is required regularly, the cost and restrictive living environment of a nursing home begins to make sense. But there’s a huge stretch of road between retirement and the nursing home. Our residents enjoy active, productive lives with just the right amount of support 24 hours a day. They can discover their independence, their tastes, their hobbies and their worth, while getting the support they need when they need it.
Yes. Seniors in the beginning stages of dementia may be most comfortable in our assisted living community. Those with more advanced needs may find our memory care community a better option. Our memory care community provides the most intensive care and supervision, as well as specialized activities to engage our residents’ minds. We offer both private and companion apartments in a 24-hour secure environment. Our compassionate team works with each resident and family to create an environment where residents can succeed and thrive while maintaining as much familiarity as possible.
We offer a variety of resources and financial options to help assist seniors and their families to be able to afford the retirement lifestyle that meets their expectations. Our fees are easy to understand, and never hidden. The apartment monthly fee includes: restaurant-style dining, laundry and maintenance, activities and wellness programs, and some transportation. Most residents will pay an additional fee based on their level of care assessment. These fees cover the cost of the additional support their needs require, including: nursing, medication management or administration, bathing, dressing and other personal services. And, residents who outlive their savings may be able to remain in our assisted living with the help of Innovage, a Medicaid managed care provider. We look forward to walking through how our fees will work for you or your loved one during your visit.
It wouldn’t be home without your furry, finned or feathered friend. We encourage residents to bring their faithful companions, and we offer referrals for services such as dog walking.
