Information About Independent Living in Lakewood

Information About Independent Living in Lakewood

Located just west of Denver and part of the larger Denver metropolitan area, the city of Lakewood is close enough to reap the benefits of a beta world city: the modern public transportation system, the first rate medical facilities, the predilection for the arts and culture exhibited by cosmopolitan centers everywhere, without the attendant population squeeze that comes from living in the center of it all. The Stone House Pond, Lakewood, CO Surrounded to the west by national parks and lakes, the Rocky Mountains rising above the distant horizon, Lakewood independent living offers the best of both worlds.

Organizations Serving Seniors in Lakewood

Beginning with the Consortium for Older Adult Wellness, which functions as a liaison between the community and the rapidly evolving health care system, myriad local services conveniently lend themselves to the specific needs of aging adults in the city of Lakewood. Another group serving seniors, Older Adult Services offers a variety of programs for people age 55 and older. For our country’s aging Veterans, just ten miles from downtown Denver is the Denver Regional Benefit Office. In Denver itself, still more associations have committed themselves to the concerns that would interest those looking into Lakewood independent living.

Lakewood Senior-Friendly Activities

All through the months of spring, Clements Community Center holds Friday tea dances early in the day and Saturday night soirees for the light-footed and fancy free. One could also sample the heritage, culture, and arts of Lakewood among three separate facilities presenting engaging exhibits, education programs, historical experiences, performing arts, and cultural opportunities to the public. If hitting the links is on the program, within the city limits alone both Fox Hollow and Homestead Golf Courses offer fantastic views of the Rocky Mountains and downtown Denver. Or escape the city life altogether and relax on the winding hiking trails of the more than 99 parks scattered around Lakewood. With horseback riding available, camping in the hills, boating and fishing on the lakes and streams, nature itself offers a bounty of diversions to choose from. For instance, your aging loved ones may choose to polish up long neglected archery skills at the archery range here in Lakewood.

Lakewood Medical Facilities

As would be expected, impressive medical facilities operate out of the metropolitan area consisting of major cities including Denver, Lakewood, and Aurora. The University of Colorado Hospital has been ranked number one in all of Colorado for overall medical care. Also allowing Lakewood independent living residents to breathe easy knowing top-quality medical care is within easy access, the National Jewish Health is ranked the best respiratory hospital in the entire nation for the fifteenth year in a row.
