Author: Stacy's Helping Hand |

An Assisted Living Community is one that offers 24/7 oversite and the chance to live independently while receiving assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL). Assisted Living Communities are technically called Assisted Living Residences or Facilities and are all licensed with the State of Colorado. Assisted Living Communities in the Denver Area can range from 8 residents in a home to a large community of over 100 residents.Communities provide a range of assistance so that your loved one can stay in the same environment as their needs increase. Some residents may need assistance only with meals. Others may also need help with tasks such as showering, dressing, and medication management.

Your loved one may be a candidate for a private apartment or need a smaller residential setting. Some communities offer a more social environment than others. A community may offer assistance with medication which is included in the monthly rate whereas another may charge a separate medication fee. You need to determine the specific needs and budget of your loved one so you can narrow down your choices.
