Learn More About Independent Living in Parker, CO

Just over 20 miles southeast of Denver, the town of Parker sits on the edge of the metro area and is one of the last stops before the Great Plains region of eastern Colorado begins. Parker has grown steadily as a suburban retreat but retains its Old West charm and access to nature, with a variety of nature trails, hiking and biking paths, and historic downtown sites.

Independent living communities — also known simply as retirement communities — in Parker are geared towards seniors who are able to 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 Parker retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.

Cost of Independent Living in Parker, CO

The median monthly cost of independent living is about $4,400 in Parker and $2,900 within the Denver metropolitan area. The median monthly cost of independent living in the state of Colorado is around $2,500.
