Independent Living in Aurora, CO

Independent living communities, also known simply as retirement communities in Aurora, CO, are geared toward seniors who can live on their own without daily assistance, and prefer to live among people their age. This usually means residents are self-sufficient and do not require hands-on care. Think of Aurora retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) apartment complexes which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.

The median monthly cost of independent living in Aurora is about $3,800 in the city proper and $2,910 within the metropolitan area. The median monthly cost for independent living in the state of Colorado is around $2,286.

For this type of senior living, Aurora, CO offers many great options, and A Place for Mom can help you find the right one.

Cost of Living in Aurora, CO

The cost of living in Aurora is considered to me more expensive than the typical city in Colorado. The cost of living index is rated 30 points higher than the national average.
