Recent reviews of Assisted Living in Colorado Springs, CO
3.8 / 5.0

This has been a very positive experience for the family. The staff communication with the family has been very easy, and they are responsive to our questions and following up. Some of the care includes: medication management, bathing and dressing assistance as some care offered by the community.

3.8 / 5.0

I have a few specific complaints: Food is pretty terrible. His room and bathroom are never clean when I visit. They keep losing his stuff. But otherwise my family member is well taken care of. It's a good place overall.

4.3 / 5.0

bingo, movie nights, seem to like it. Right now they have a special where the price is locked no matter what is needed and we got that promotion. I have refereed two of my clients that needed some help with their parents. Feels homey!

VA benefits for assisted living in Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs has been named among the best places for veterans to live in recent years. The area has a strong local Army and Air Force presence between Fort Carson and the U.S. Air Force Academy. Support for veterans abounds here, making Colorado Springs an ideal place to settle into assisted living.

Colorado Springs has several veterans’ membership programs in local communities that offer valuable resources and wonderful events for seniors. You’ll also find local resource centers and veterans service officers available to help you secure federal veterans benefits. If you’re a veteran or a veteran’s spouse, read on to learn about local resources and VA benefits that can help during your stay in assisted living.

Veterans benefits

Veterans or spouses of deceased veterans in Colorado Springs can use benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (or the VA) to cover the costs of assisted living. If a veteran is disabled and enrolled in VA health care, they may apply for additional benefits on top of their pension, such as the Aid and Attendance benefit. This benefit is generous and can be used for anything improving quality of life, such as living in an assisted living community or in-home health care.

Enrollment for veterans benefits can be tricky to navigate. We recommend speaking to a knowledgeable veterans advisor before applying in order to more successfully receive your rightful benefits as a veteran or surviving spouse.

Resources for Colorado Springs veterans

In Colorado Springs, and more generally in El Paso County, the Pikes Peak library system offers a wealth of veterans information through its veterans resource section. These resources cover everything from local veterans gatherings to how to receive benefits to additional support for veterans’ basic needs.

For more support, local veteran service centers, such as the local American Legion Posts or Colorado Veterans Project, can help a senior get enrolled in a VA benefits program. You can also find a detailed outline of veterans benefits through the Pikes Peak Agency on Aging (PPACG). Local services available as a Colorado Springs veteran may include the following:

  • Educational resources
  • Benefit advising
  • Legal partners for claim help
  • Financial assistance and food security

Additional ways you can access veterans advocacy:

Colorado Springs Medicaid for assisted living

Colorado Springs seniors receive benefits through Colorado Community Health Alliance (also known as CCHA), the local branch of Colorado’s greater Medicaid program called Health First Colorado. While CCHA doesn’t provide benefits toward paying for assisted living, they do offer assistance with certain prescription drugs and durable medical equipment, such as the following:

  • Crutches
  • Oxygen
  • Wheelchairs
  • Gait trainers

CCHA also offers a helpful list of health information for seniors on their website that you can explore for answers to all kinds of general health questions. For more general questions about adult Medicaid programs, check out the Pike’s Peak Area Agency on Aging (PPACG). They released a helpful 2022 Medicaid book detailing all state-specific Medicaid and veteran programs. They also released a 2022 Yellow Book — a senior information and assistance directory.

Home and Community Based Services

Additional medical and nonmedical assisted living services can be covered through Home and Community-Based Services (also known as HCBS) waivers. This is Health First Colorado’s Medicaid waiver program that can be used in assisted living facilities contracted with a resident’s managed care provider or in the senior’s home. This HCBS waiver enables individuals to live and get care in the home or community of their choice rather than in an institutional setting.

HCBS waiver programs can help cover costs for the following types of assisted living services in Colorado:

  • Personal care
  • Nursing services
  • Medical supplies
  • Personal aids, such as eyeglasses, orthotic devices, hearing aids, and orthopedic shoes
  • Respite care
  • Physical, speech, and occupational therapies

Health First Colorado also offers an Elderly, Blind, and Disabled (EBD) waiver for seniors and people with disabilities that may help pay for care in assisted Living. Health First Colorado also has specific HCBS waivers for adults with the following health complications:

  • Brain injuries
  • Mental health needs
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Developmental disabilities

Be sure to speak with a Health First Colorado representative to help determine eligibility and choose an HCBS waiver. An ombudsman through the PPACG can help with any issues you may encounter as you try to access Medicaid benefits and other long-term care service complications. Get started by exploring the resources on Health First Colorado benefits and waivers below.

Medicare assisted living coverage in Colorado Springs

Medicare will not cover room and board fees in an assisted living community, but it does cover many medical costs that occur in long-term care costs might include medical equipment, hospital stays, and some prescription medications.

If you’d like to know what Medicare specifically will cover in Colorado Springs, dial 2-1-1 or visit the federal Medicare website. You can also find help at your local Social Security Administration office and through an ombudsman with the Pikes Peak Area Agency on Aging. Ombudsmen act as advocates to ensure you get the Medicare services you need. Additionally, the following programs can also assist seniors with health care benefits:

Understand Colorado laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

In Colorado, assisted living facilities must meet the needs of their residents and must not admit seniors whose needs cannot be met by the staffing’s expertise. Because of this, assisted living facilities must conduct a pre-admission assessment of potential, would-be residents. This assessment seeks to understand a person’s capacity for self-care, overall health information, and their physical, social, and mental needs.

The community itself must be able to provide the following services to residents:

  • A physically safe and sanitary environment
  • Protective oversight
  • Room and board
  • Social care and resident engagement
  • Personal care services
  • A system for addressing resident concerns
  • Nursing services, as long as care needs don’t exceed regular 24-hour medical care[03]

Additionally, in the state of Colorado, assisted living residences cannot provide a fully equipped kitchen inside the residents’ units. Instead, lodgings often come equipped with miniature versions comparable to what one might find in a hotel room — kitchenettes with mini-fridges and microwaves.[01]

Regulating bodies in Colorado Springs

Assisted living facilities in Colorado Springs are licensed by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). The Health Facilities and Emergency Medical Services Division oversees adult care and assisted living facilities and is responsible for performing quality and safety inspections. To review any licensed facility, you can view all inspection reports for the past five years on their website.

For a deeper understanding of Colorado regulations and how they impact your loved one’s stay in assisted living, you can also review the following information:

Medicaid and Medicare certification for assisted living facilities

Some assisted living communities may be eligible for Medicaid and Medicare certification. This allows facilities to bill Medicaid or Medicare for some health care services provided to residents. It also means the assisted living facility has to adhere to strict health care guidelines and participate with regular inspections by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Colorado Springs has an undeniably lively senior community, and among all the senior living options available here, assisted living is the biggest care type in our partner network. We know that every year, more seniors are moving down from the mountains or up from around the country to be in the Springs.

Health care for seniors in Colorado Springs

Longtime Coloradans will be familiar with the altitude differences between the small mountain towns and Colorado Springs. Some seniors living further up in the mountains experience breathing issues, which brings them down to Colorado Springs as their health requires a lower elevation. Colorado Springs still has a relatively high elevation compared to the rest of the country, averaging around 6,000 feet above sea level. If you’re moving from out of state, you may find it beneficial to get heart and lung testing before settling at Colorado Springs’ altitude.[01]

The fantastic hospitals in Colorado Springs are one of the major draws in the city, whether you’re moving as a senior or a young health care professional. The quality of the hospital systems in the Springs attracts talent from around the country. Two hospital systems in particular stand out above the rest for excellent care and specializations in senior health.

Senior activities in Colorado Springs

From incredible scenery to joy-filled senior communities, Colorado Springs offers the best of city amenities with mountainous beauty. Explore activities for Colorado Springs seniors below.

Enjoying the outdoors

Colorado Springs sits in the shadow of Pikes Peak, and assisted living communities often organize off-site trips up the peak. This makes for a stunning drive with community neighbors or visiting friends. If you’d prefer to travel by train, the Cog railway takes you all the way to the top of the peak to enjoy the multi-state view.

For a train tour slightly further out, you might consider a trip on the Royal Gorge Route Railroad. This nationally celebrated route offers incredible panoramic views, while passengers enjoy luxurious dining and a full bar in a vintage mid-century coach. This round-trip tour travels 24 miles through the Royal Gorge Region.
