Independent Living in Colorado

“Colorful Colorado,” as it is often called by the locals, is home to gorgeous natural landscapes, ranging from the Great Plains in the east to the majestic Rocky Mountains, which tower over much of the state. Denver, known as the Mile High City, is the state’s capital and offers all of the comforts and conveniences of a major metropolitan city. Outside of its more urban areas, Colorado is a mountainous paradise filled with beautiful sights to see and explore – an excellent retirement setting with endless opportunities for activity.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 180 independent living communities in Colorado. The median monthly cost of independent living in Colorado is about $2,400.

Westhaven Apartment Homes in Lakewood, CO
4.0

I have moved in to Westhaven Apartment Homes, and I really like it so far. I like that I can still maintain an independent lifestyle here, but that it is also a very active and social retirement facility. The staff is great, and they have a lot of activities like Bingo, movies, crafts, story time; there’s a gym, too. It’s an older building, but it’s clean, and they do a good job keeping it up. I also like that it is cost efficient, and I would recommend it to others looking to keep up an independent lifestyle.
