Poppy's Place in Centennial, CO
4.8

The people are varied in ages and levels of needs and care, so I think it makes it a little tough for activities. I think they do as best as they can trying to keep everyon active. I think the staff is terrific. The food seems to be homestyle cooking and nutritious. I think you get a little more personal care than with some of the bigger places. I feel like they have tried to work with us. They have a P.A. that stops by, and they take good care of them.

Blue Spruce is a warm, caring and safe place for my 87 year old mother. Adele and her staff are very compassionate toward their patients and provide individual attention to each patients needs. The food choices are varied; and my mother has enjoyed them all! Twenty four hour care has been very important to me; and I worry less and sleep better knowing Adele and her staff have my mothers best interests always in mind. I highly recommend you take a look at Blue Spruce.

Understand Colorado laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

Colorado in recent years expanded its assisted living regulations to even better ensure the safety and well-being of residents, including expanding or updating resident rights, fall management, staff training, structure requirements, and more.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) evaluates and regulates assisted living facilities in Denver. Its Health Facilities and Emergency Medical Services Division oversees assisted living and other adult care facilities and performs regular inspections to ensure quality and safety. The public can view all inspection reports for the past five years for any facility licensed by the department.

Regulations are designed to improve the lives of assisted living residents, so it’s important to have an understanding of how Denver and Colorado oversee facilities as you conduct your search.

In addition to state regulations, Denver has zoning requirements for assisted living facilities.

Denver: A high-growth assisted living market

Colorado has one of the fastest-growing senior populations in the nation. Colorado’s 65+ population grew by 58.2% between 2010 and 2020 to about 900,000, and it’s estimated that it will grow by another 300,000 individuals by 2030.{{citation:2}}

This growing senior population poses some challenges for Coloradans. From housing and financial support shortages to concern about access to medical care, Colorado seniors may see cause for worry. However, the Colorado government has taken note of this demographic shift and is taking measures to ensure seniors receive the care they need.

Bills are being passed to encourage an increase in geriatric care and expand social services for seniors. Meanwhile, new senior housing developments are being built and old complexes are being restored or transitioned to help expand the options for seniors in need of assisted living. These preventative steps may ease the pressure facing Colorado seniors as they age.

Assisted living in the surrounding Denver suburbs

As you exit the downtown Denver area and step into the sprawling suburbs, your options for senior living only continue to grow.

Broomfield, Colorado, for example, less than 20 miles north of Denver, has a number of facilities that feature modern yet homey interiors, with towering stone fireplaces and warm wooden accents throughout. Most of them offer a range of independent living, assisted living, and memory care. The monthly prices for assisted living in this area start at $2,539.{{citation:3}} — significantly lower than the average costs in downtown Denver. However they also offer higher-end options that may cost over $5,000 per month.{{citation:1}}

Types of assisted living in Denver

Of the existing facilities and the ones still under construction, these range from high-end luxury apartments to traditional assisted living communities and subsidized alternative care facilities.

Denver is home to a number of health care providers, some of them highly rated and skilled in special care offerings.

UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital

UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital is ranked No. 1 out of all hospitals in Denver, and is nationally ranked in five specialties, according to U.S. News and World Report. It is affiliated with the University of Colorado School of Medicine, with many of the doctors serving as faculty for the school.

SCL Health St. Joseph Hospital

SCL Health St. Joseph Hospital is ranked No. 2 in Denver, and No. 3 across the state of Colorado, according to U.S. News and World Report. It is a teaching hospital and is highly rated in two specialties.

Transportation for seniors in Denver

While the downtown area of Denver is certainly walkable, many residents of Denver still own their own vehicles. But other options for getting around town include Denver’s light rail system, taxis, buses, and the 16th Street MallRide, a free hybrid shuttle bus that runs the length of 16th Street. In some neighborhoods you can even hail a pedi-cab or tuk-tuk.

The light rail system, called RTD, consists of 12 rail lines running 113 miles throughout the city, some suburbs, and the airport. Fares are discounted for seniors over 65.

Senior activities in Denver

Denver features gorgeous natural views, exciting activities, and unique cultural hubs. There’s always something to do in Denver — from mountainous outdoor parks to museums, concerts, sporting events, and restaurants of all types.

Assisted living communities plan regular outings to these exciting landmarks so residents can experience all that Denver has to offer. For recreation, the Denver Botanic Garden and Denver Mountain Parks provide lovely natural settings where seniors can enjoy the great outdoors.

Seniors with disabilities or physical limitations may prefer to see a show at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts or consider a ball game at Coors Field. Meanwhile, for academics and art lovers, the Denver Art Museum and Denver Museum of Nature and Science are excellent places to expand your mind. And nearby Black Hawk, Colorado, offers over a dozen casinos for seniors who enjoy a day of drinks, food, and gaming.
