Denver and Colorado, in general, were largely kept a secret in the past. Mostly thought of as a haven for ski bums, it has turned into one of the top places in the country to live over the last decade. If your children were among the ones who flocked to colorful Colorado, why not join them? Find the right senior living in the Mile High City with Pegasus Senior Living.
Is Denver senior-friendly?
Absolutely. Denver became a member of the World Health Organization’s Network of Age-Friendly Cities in 2014.
Due to the uptick in transplants, millennials now make up about a third of the population. Don’t let that discourage you. Do as the locals do, as they say. What do Denver locals enjoy? The food scene.
Enjoying meals is not just for the youngsters. Imagine the dining you can enjoy:
- American comfort food at Steuben’s Uptown
- Romantic Italian dinners at Gaetano’s
- Cool treats with a twist at Sweet Action
- Classic Greek and diner fare at Chef Zorba’s
Follow your meal with an up-close view of the wild at the IMAX Theatre in Phipps Auditorium at The Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Of course, authentic nature is always just a short drive away in places like Castle Rock, Evergreen, and Golden.
The Courtyards at Mountain View
The first stop on the Pegasus Senior Living tour of Denver is The Courtyards at Mountain View. If you’re feeling extra spry, you can ride your bike from the community directly to downtown or the Cherry Creek Shopping Center along the Cherry Creek Trail.
If you’re wondering where to live in Denver, The Courtyards at Mountain View is what you want. Offering independent living, assisted living, and very soon, memory care, this community is perfect for aging in place while being centrally located to your family.
Belleview Suites at DTC
In addition to active assisted living and comforting memory care, we love Belleview Suites at DTC in south Denver for its proximity to scenic getaways at Cherry Creek State Park and shopping at Park Meadows. It even makes a good home base for Broncos fans looking to get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at training camp.
Residents of Belleview Suites at DTC can enjoy kicking back and relaxing in the lounge, library, or patio. Sometimes, their community transportations head up the hill for the folks looking to cash in at the casino. Of course, they offer plenty of no-stakes cards and games as well. Take a look at the activity calendar for more to do at this pet-friendly community.

Why memory care?
If your loved one is living with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, our memory care is here for you. In addition to the services and amenities available in assisted living, memory loss residents in Denver can gain purpose through our signature Connections program.
The Connections program uses the power of movement and continued learning to stimulate the process of neuroplasticity. Pair that with an emphasis on socialization and expression through art, and your loved one can benefit by extending their level of mobility and slowing down the memory loss process.
The Connections program was born from experience. After a stroke left Pegasus Senior Living Health and Wellness Consultant Dr. Sandra Petersen without the use of the left side of her body, her recovery inspired an idea for memory care.
Following her recovery, she took these ideas of brain plasticity and activities that challenge the body and the mind to create a program to enrich the lives of people experiencing Alzheimer’s and dementia.
