Assisted Living Facilities in Colorado

Find all assisted senior living options in Colorado

Colorado offers seniors a great combination of independent living communities and assisted living facilities. The state of Colorado is also home to a large number of continuing care retirement communities, so seniors have the option of moving once and getting a changing set of care options as the aging process present new challenges. It will simply be a matter to deciding what level of care is required and then settling on a senior living community that best meets those needs. Making the right care choice will depend on where each senior is on the aging spectrum.

For many Coloradans, aging hasn’t done much more than slow them down a bit and maybe make getting up and around a touch more difficult, but for the most part, these seniors are still perfectly comfortable living independently. They’d just like to downsize a bit and get someone else to takeover home maintenance. For them, a 55+ senior living community / independent living community in Colorado gives them this, plus amenities and great company.

For others, the aging process has begun to make some of the basics of living each day a bit too challenging. They are unsteady on their feet and have a devil of a time trying to remember what medicines they need to take and when. For these seniors, a senior assisted living community may be their best option.

So, Colorado seniors will need to take a realistic look at where they are and what they need so they can make the best possible choice for a fulfilling life in retirement.

Types of Senior Living Communities in Colorado

Many senior’s communities in Colorado are focused on independent living, with a combination of senior assisted living, meaning there are some great options that don’t set limits on the care seniors can enjoy today and in the future.

Stage One – Independent Living

Age has a way of slowing things down a bit, but that doesn’t mean seniors are ready to give up living actively and enjoying every moment of life to the fullest. Speed doesn’t matter when the attitude remains strongly positive. For these seniors, a living solution needs to help them downsize and simplify, and nothing more. This is what Colorado senior living communities, sometimes called 55+ communities or retirement communities, do. They offer seniors something smaller and more manageable, while taking over responsibility for all of the maintenance they are stuck doing today.

They also offer seniors an independent living community replete with amenities, like clubhouses, event spaces, swimming pools, fitness centers and more. Plus, they bring seniors together in a true community where friendships are forged and fun things always seem to be happening. These are the real benefits of life in an independent living community.

Stage Two – Assisted Living

Aging adults can get to a stage in life where doing many of the basics becomes a chore that is just too tough to handle independently. Aching muscles, unsteady legs, failing memory and even boredom start building pressure on the positive attitude that is so important for living a meaningful life in retirement. When this stage arrives, if it arrives, an assisted living community in Colorado offers just the care that is needed to elevate the problem and get seniors back in the game.

Care in these facilities is know as Assisted Daily Living and it provides direct assistance with things like personal hygiene and medication management. Health is monitored as well so any emerging problems can be identified and treated early. Living spaces are smaller but still provide complete privacy and Colorado seniors are still free to get involved with all that is happening in the world around them. In short, they still live independently but they do it with a bit of help.

Stage Three – Memory Care

This isn’t so much a stage as an extension of what assisted living facilities can offer seniors. This is memory care and it helps seniors suffering with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. These seniors will be less capable of living independently and for this reason, the care they will receive will be much more involved.

First, this care is offered in sections of a Colorado senior assisted living facility that is more secure, so seniors are kept safe. They then offer unique sensory therapies that help seniors recover some of what has been lost while helping them form new and fulfilling memories and help to become engage once more with the world around them.

Evolving Care – Continuing Care Retirement Communities in Colorado

Continuing care retirement communities in Colorado, sometimes referred to as continuum care, offer a mix of care levels that start with independent living and grow to include senior assisted living. It is called continuing care since seniors are afforded the option of aging in place. This means that the care they receive is adjusted as their needs evolve, without having to pick up and move to a new community. Relationship and a real sense of community are retained with these continuing care options.
