Independent Living in Colorado Defined

Back to top

If you are retiring and prefer to live in a community with other people of about the same age, you should consider moving to a Colorado independent living facility. However, if you are dependent on other people in carrying out your daily routines such as bathing, eating, cooking and cleaning, you should consider an assisted living facility instead. Independent living homes are suitable for retirees who are self-reliant and want to enjoy the convenience of having social, physical and cultural services at their fingertips. Assisted living facilities provide personal care services for seniors who need some extra support with life’s chores but do not require the full-time medical care provided in a skilled nursing facility. You can find communities that provide assisted living and skilled nursing care in Colorado in our Assisted Living and Nursing Home categories.
