Denver (CO) Senior Living Communities
Denver’s location on the edge of the Great Plains abutting the Rocky Mountains makes it an ideal location and the reason many people move here. The Mile-High City—5,280 feet above sea level—boasts 245 sunny days a year, relatively mild winters and enough outdoor and indoor activities to keep even the most active senior busy year-round.
Before you dive into your Denver senior living search, see what else this Western city has to offer.
Location, location, location. Because it’s a desirable place to call home, Denver’s cost of living runs higher than many similar-sized cities, but only slightly. The overall cost of living is just 6% higher than the national average. And some senior housing runs a little higher than average. For example, a one-bedroom in an assisted living facility averages $3,600 a month says Genworth Financial’s long-term care survey. A private room in a nursing home averages $221 a day, while a semi-private averages $204.
If you’re in to snow sports, you have your pick of nearby ski resorts (e.g. Vail, Breckenridge, Arapaho Basin, and Beaver Creek), cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, ice-skating, snowshoeing and any other winter activity you can think of. Within the city, there are over 200 parks and hundreds of miles of bike paths and trails. The city also owns 14,000 acres of mountain parks like the beautiful Red Rocks Park.
Sports fans have four major professionals sports—Broncos, Nuggets, Avalanche and the Rockies—to choose from plus Major League Soccer’s Rapids, professional lacrosse teams, and the teams fielded by the Universities of Denver and Colorado.
Denver’s list of attractions is endless: the Denver Art Museum, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, LoDo (lower downtown), a pedestrian mall with restaurants, bars, shops, and galleries, Denver Zoo, Downtown Aquarium, Denver Botanic Gardens, Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, Colorado History Museum, and many others.Enter Your Neighborhood into the searchbar at the top of the page to see all the senior care options available.
