My dad has recently made the move into this community and so far everything is going well for him. The staff have been wonderful to work with and I am comfortable with the care he has been provided. He has had no complaints about the meals and enjoys participating in some of the great activities they have to offer all of the residents. Overall it has been a great fit and I would recommend it to anyone interested.

Affinity at Copperleaf in Aurora, CO
3.6

I would tell others about all of the activities that are available, including the enclosed indoor pool & hot tub, as well as the theater. I don't partake in everything, but there are a lot of things to do. My 1 bedroom apartment is wonderful. The only problem I have is that the balconies are useless. They're so small, and you aren't allowed to leave anything out there or do anything out there. I do, however, have a full-sized kitchen - which is huge and I love that. I have a front-loading washer and dryer in my apartment as well. We have all the things you could want: dishwasher, fridge, full sized everything. The apartment is a nice size for the price. The biggest problem is that there's absolutely no single men, but I don't think that's in plan. It does make it kind of difficult for some activities; for example: if you want to go dancing, you can't because there's no one to dance with. Aside from that I have no real complaints. I would and I have recommended Affinity at Copperleaf to others.

A car may be necessary, however, to get around the city outside of the downtown area. There are a number of services in the city that offer senior transportation, including RTD SeniorRide, which picks up groups of ten or more people from a single destination to travel to select community events for a fee.

Senior activities

Known as “The Mile High City,” Denver has much to offer in the way of entertainment and recreation. The Denver Art Museum contains over 68,000 pieces and displays a stunning collection of Native American art, showcasing works from many different tribes of the North American regions. For a stroll through the city replete with shopping and people-watching, visit the 16th Street Mall — a pedestrian mall featuring hundreds of trees, thousands of flowers, and a pathway designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei. Train and history buffs can take a short trip outside the city to the town of Golden to visit the Colorado Railroad Museum, which features over 100 locomotives and cars, as well as photos and historic artifacts, on display in a setting reminiscent of an 1880s rail depot. Living in Denver also offers plenty of access to the great outdoors. If you’d like to take in some of Colorado’s natural beauty, start with the Denver Botanical Gardens, a 24-acre park conveniently located right within the city. Of course, no visit to Colorado would be complete without a trip to the famed Rocky Mountain National Park. Just a short drive outside the city, the park is a world-famous destination encompassing 415 square miles of awe-inspiring scenic beauty.
