As you get older and prepare for Retirement in Denver Colorado, we would love to hope for many years that you can stay in your own home and continue to be independent.
But as you pass into your 70’s, 80’s and beyond, you might discover that you can’t take care of yourself the way you used to and become more dependent on your spouse or your kids to get by.
Not knowing how to face this issue can be difficult…not just for you, but for your entire family.
YOU know it might be time to look into moving to a retirement community in denver, but you absolutely “dont want to find yourself in a Denver nursing home”.
You might have heard of assisted living, independent living or even a CCRC but you have no idea what the difference are between these and how much they cost.
That is where we come into the picture. We are a team of Denver, Colorado Senior Transition Specialists and we are familiar with all of the Assisted Living, Independent Living and CCRC facilities around town.
When we work with you and your family, we will discover what type of denver retirement community is best for you.
Here is some basic information about Retirement Communities in Denver and what types and choices there really are.
Independent Senior Living Communities in and near Denver Colorado:
Independent Living is Retirement Living in a community where you can still do all the things you love doing, minus the cleaning, snow shoveling, etc. As you go through your retirement, you can enjoy the freedom of being independent, but have the option if you do need some minor assistance, that usually can be arranged either through the community and/or a home health service. Most offer linen service, cleaning service, transportation and optional meals.
Assisted Senior Living Communities in and near Denver Colorado:
If you find you are needing more assistance in the daily activities of life, such as bathing, eating, walking, medication management, you may want to consider retirement in an assisted living community. Those become routine cares provided for you, while still maintaining as much independence as possible.
Long Term Care / Skilled Nursing Facility / Nursing Home Communities in and near Denver Colorado:
Today we refer to Nursing homes as Long Term Care or Skilled Nursing Facilities as being “put into a nursing home” has come to be a negative idea.
Skilled Nursing Facilities or Long Term Care communities are actually an extension of care that may be needed for seniors who need more intensive nursing care. Some of them provide for rehabilitation after you have had a hospital stay and/or surgery and need some extra physical and occupational therapy to strengthen you before you go back home, to your new Independent Living Community or Assisted Living community that we assist you in finding.
Each of these different Retirement Communities may be paid for with different funding. Some are private pay only, some are covered by government funding. The rehabilitation centers may be covered by your insurance, Medicare or Medicaid depending if certain criteria has been met. If Medicaid Application assistance is needed, we have a Medicaid Specialist will assist you until the decision is made by the county.
We are here at 303-371-4100 to personally discuss your personal, medical and financial needs to see which Retirement Community is going to be the best fit for you and your family.
