Recent reviews of Senior Apartments in Denver, CO
Westhaven Apartment Homes in Lakewood, CO

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.

Concordia on the Lake in Littleton, CO

I have had an excellent experience here at Concordia on the Lake so far. They have amazing activities for residents to participate in. It is a high quality facility and the staff have been very friendly.

Affinity at Copperleaf in Aurora, CO

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.

Costs of senior apartments in the Denver area

The average cost of a senior apartment in Denver is around $1,301 per month, according to A Place for Mom’s 2022 proprietary data.[01] This figure factors in any fees or additional costs that may occur, such as parking, wireless internet, access to a fitness center or pool, or use of common rooms. However, costs will vary depending on the size of the apartment and any included amenities and services.

You’ll notice this average cost is significantly lower than assisted living communities in Denver, which average $4,894 per month, including care and fees.[01] This is due to the fact that senior apartments do not offer daily assistance and care like assisted living communities do.

The below chart shows the average starting costs for Denver-area senior apartments. These figures don’t include fees or extras.

How people pay for senior apartments in Denver

Paying for a senior apartment in Denver is much the same as paying for any other apartment, meaning the primary way to pay is with private funds like income or pensions. Some apartments may offer special discounts, like move-in specials or included utilities, which help defray some of the costs.

You’ll likely pay for your Denver senior apartment with private funds. This includes any income sources such as pensions, investment returns, savings accounts, and Social Security benefits. Note that long-term care insurance and Health Savings Accounts (also known as HSAs) can’t be used to pay for senior apartments. Review more ways seniors typically pay for their senior living costs below.

Colorado laws and regulations for senior apartments

Senior apartments in Denver must observe all the regulations in place for traditional apartment buildings. Landlords are required to follow these regulations:

  • They must uphold standards of safety and cleanliness on all properties.
  • They cannot disconnect utilities.
  • They must ensure installation and maintenance of appliances and equipment.
  • They must perform regular pest control.
  • They must maintain proper lighting, ventilation, and heating.

Tenants have a long list of rights under Colorado law, which protects them against potentially unsafe or unfair conditions. In Colorado, this means the following:

  • Landlords are prohibited from raising rent more than once a year.
  • Late fees must be capped to keep residents from falling behind on payments.
  • Landlords must keep their buildings up to code.
  • Landlords cannot unfairly withhold security deposits.
  • Tenants cannot be discriminated against based on their age, race, creed, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability status, or immigration status.

Review your rights as a Denver tenant before moving into a senior apartment, so you know how to spot and report potential abuses. You can dial 3-1-1 to inform the Department of Health and Environment of any issues.

As of Jan. 1, 2023, all Denver multi-family rental properties require a residential rental license, which needs to be renewed every four years. The city is also mandating regular third-party inspections to be performed in order for buildings to obtain and keep their licenses. You can review whether a rental property has a license on the city of Denver website. In the top menu, click on business licenses, then type the address of the property into the search bar. This will show whether the apartment has an up-to-date license.

Besides these general apartment regulations, senior apartments in particular may also have age requirements for tenants. For example, some senior apartments allow seniors age 55 and up, while others start at age 62. Most senior apartments list these details on their websites, or you can always check with a property manager.

COVID-19 regulations for Denver senior apartment communities

There are no specific regulations currently in place for senior apartments in Denver, although some communities may choose to implement prevention protocols at the manager’s discretion. Current CDC suggestions for COVID-19 prevention in apartment complexes are as follows:

Masking. Masks are encouraged in public spaces.

Facility cleanliness. Building managers should expand on current cleaning and disinfection protocols.

Social distancing. Residents are encouraged to social distance, and management should create more open spaces where possible.

What to expect from senior apartments in Denver

As if the prime location wasn’t enough, Denver senior apartments offer a wide variety of options to fit your preferences. From independent apartment units to thriving common spaces; luxury urban living to quiet, laidback suburbs — whatever your style, Denver has a senior apartment for you.

Go at your own pace

For city-loving seniors, the heart of downtown Denver may be your ideal spot. Senior apartments in the downtown area tend to be on the more expensive side, but they offer ample access to public transportation, thriving restaurant districts, and all the events and excitement you expect from city life.

On the other hand, suburbs like Aurora and Lakewood are perfect for seniors who prefer a more relaxed pace. Senior apartments in these areas are often more affordable and less congested, making it easy to get to and from appointments, shopping districts, or other obligations.

Take the hassle out of your golden years

One thing you’ll find in almost every Denver senior apartment community is an emphasis on convenience. Whether this means all-inclusive rent that covers utilities and other fees, ample parking, or close proximity to shopping and dining, Denver senior apartments do their best to make living simple for their residents.

A number of senior apartments in Denver also offer helpful amenities like meal services, housekeeping, free Wi-Fi, and fitness centers on-site, so you can spend less time worrying about day-to-day stressors and more time staying healthy and happy.

Apartments with real community

Denver senior apartments aren’t just homes — they’re communities. And apartment staff work hard to keep their communities active and vibrant. Most Denver senior apartment communities have common areas like gardens, patios, pools, recreation centers, and other spots for residents to meet and relax together.

Many communities also offer regular activities, so residents never have to worry about being bored. When you’re not exploring the sights and sounds of Denver, you can often find activities at your community, from birthday parties to wellness classes to group outings and more.

Unfamiliar with Denver? Highlights for seniors



Percentage of seniors 65 and older within the Denver population, according to the U.S. Census Bureau


Health care for seniors in Denver

While there are a number of outstanding health care providers in Denver, two hospitals in particular rate highly on a national scale and even offer specialty senior care offerings.

UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital

UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital tops the chart of health care providers in Denver, ranking No. 1 out of all hospitals in the city with national recognition in several cancer and heart specialties, according to U.S. News and World Report.

SCL Health St. Joseph Hospital

SCL Health St. Joseph Hospital is another notable hospital system in Denver, with high ratings in geriatric specialties. According to U.S. News and World Report, this hospital ranks No. 2 out of all hospitals in Denver and No. 3 across the state of Colorado.

Transportation for seniors in Denver

Senior apartments typically don’t offer transportation services, but there are plenty of other options for navigating Denver.

Denver is mostly a driving city since the sprawling suburbs make the city expansive. However, for seniors who don’t have cars or prefer not to drive, there are a number of other transportation options from which to choose. However, public transportation options are largely central to the downtown Denver area.

  • Notably, Denver’s Regional Transit District (or RTD) light rail system consists of 12 rail lines running 113 miles throughout the city, including some suburbs and the airport. Seniors age 65 and up can receive discounted fares, and there are additional RTD accessibility services for seniors with mobility issues.
  • Denver also has a free hybrid shuttle bus that runs the length of 16th Street, called the 16th Street Mall Ride. This convenient service is especially useful in the heart of downtown while you’re shopping, dining, or otherwise experiencing the sights and sounds of the city.
  • Designated senior transportation and other support services are also provided by the local nonprofit Seniors’ Resource Center. This nonprofit offers transportations services to Denver seniors with disabilities as well as their families and caregivers.

The following ratings are presented by Walk Score, and they give an idea of the ease and accessibility of various types of transportation in Denver. Each number is scored out of 100, where 100 is the highest and best possible score.




Senior activities in Denver

Although it’s known for its fantastic mountain views and natural beauty, Denver is also a bustling urban hub full of exciting activities, nationally ranked restaurants, and several landmarks. Denver is the perfect place for the senior who wants it all — the action of the city balanced with scenic day trips to “get away from it all” — without going too far from home.

  • The Denver Mountain Parks Foundation maintains over a dozen natural spaces and conservation areas where seniors of all abilities can enjoy the great outdoors. You’ll find walking trails, picnic areas, fishing sites, and even music venues like the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Most of Denver Mountain Parks also have handicap-accessible areas and trails, so seniors who require mobility assistance can take part in these natural wonders.
  • The Denver food scene is home to several prestigious food and beverage awards and more breweries than any other U.S. city. From formal dining to casual diners, downtown Denver is home to every conceivable type of cuisine: Armenian pastries, Swedish potato pancakes, Vietnamese banh mi, and so much more. Seniors can kick back at a classic Mexican taqueria, American diner, or Detroit-style pizzeria, or they can enjoy happy hour with a cocktail at one of Denver’s stylish bars or speakeasies.
  • For entertaining family and friends, Denver has exciting activities for every interest. Consider outings like a show at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, a ball game at Coors Field, or a trip to one of the dozen-plus casinos in nearby Black Hawk, Colorado.
  • For seniors with a love of learning, the Denver Art Museum and Denver Museum of Nature and Science are excellent places to expand the mind. The Denver Central Library is also a great outing for the intellectual senior, as it houses over 2 million items and regularly hosts free community events.
  • For active seniors, the city of Denver offers Active Older Adult (or AOA) programs for 50+ seniors, with calendars full of activities to support overall wellness — like art and fitness classes, indoor and outdoor leisure activities, luncheons, and more. On top of these programs, the city also provides a free membership for their resident seniors 60+ to My Denver PRIME, which gives seniors free access to all of the city’s 30 recreation centers and pools as well as over 200 fitness classes and clubs.
