Golden West was founded by the First Christian Church in 1965. Their efforts answered a need for senior housing in the Boulder area. Since then, the community has grown to include housing for independent and assisted living – The Towers, The Mezzanine, and Flatirons Terrace, its newest independent living community. Golden West has led the way for outstanding living options in the Boulder area. Its strength is its people. Staff, service providers, and residents combine to create a vital and rewarding experience. With only three executive directors in its 50 years of existence, there is a caring and continuity that is consistently delivered and protectively preserved.
