Options for Senior Living Communities in Colorado

Independent Living

Retirees can start aging in place with independent living. This level of care is ideal for retirees who are self-reliant but would like to live with peace of mind. Assistive services include cooking, cleaning, and transportation.

Independent living communities typically offer a wide range of amenities and social activities to keep residents engaged and active.

Connections is the signature data-based program for dementia care in our community. The program is inspired by Dr. Sandra Petersen and treats memory loss by keeping residents active and engaged.

Each memory care team member receives specialized training to meet the needs of seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Team members also lead mind-enhancing activities.

The foundations of the Connections program:

  • Engaging the Emotions: Art projects and social activities encourage creative thinking.

  • Supporting Socialization: Compassionate caregivers create a welcoming environment for older adults to continue forming relationships.

Additional Senior Care Services in Denver

There are many ways for older adults to receive care in the Mile High City. Independent living, assisted living, and memory care offers a lot of built-value in addition to providing long-term care. However, it’s important to know your options.

Home Care Services

Most people would prefer to age in the comfort of their own homes. For some, that is possible with the help of medical home care. Services can be managed by a care coordinator and may include anything from homemaking tasks to medical care.

Because medical home care is more comprehensive than what most people can do on their own, it is also more expensive.

According to the 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey, full-time home care in Colorado averages $6,387 per month. Assisted living is around $4,750 per month.

Nursing Homes

For those who need more comprehensive care, there are nursing homes. Nursing homes provide round-the-clock medical care and other assistance, such as help with eating or bathing.

Nursing homes are usually more expensive than medical home care. They can be cheaper than hiring someone to provide 24-hour home care. Expect a Denver nursing home to cost about $10,053 per month.

Senior Day Programs

Another option for seniors is a senior day center. Senior day centers provide a wide range of activities and services designed to meet the needs of older adults. These centers offer social activities, educational opportunities, and occasional transportation services.

Day centers are usually less expensive than other services. However, they may not provide the level of medical care that some seniors need. Senior day programs in Denver cost $2,275 per month.
