Nursing Homes in Aurora, CO

Nursing homes — also called convalescent homes or skilled nursing facilities — are communities for seniors who require 24-hour monitoring and medical assistance. These communities are designed to promote independence among seniors who require constant nursing care to perform activities of daily living (ADLs), but are not in need of hospital-level care.

The median monthly cost for a private room in an Aurora nursing home is around $8,607, and the median monthly cost of a private room in a nursing home in the state of Colorado is about $6,980, according to Genworth.

For this type of elder care, 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. However, the grocery index is four points lower than the national average. All index scores are based on a sliding scale with the national average set at 100.
