Costs and Types of Colorado Assisted Living Centers

Colorado assisted living for seniors costs $4,700 per month on average. This can be markedly cheaper than a standard assisted living apartment in some places in Colorado so it helps to know where to look and what your budget is.

The higher-end facilities can hover around $5,000 per month. This can put some folks over the edge when it comes to affording assisted living. These rates are base rates that do not often include memory care. One of the most important questions to ask when you’re touring assisted living facilities in Colorado is what’s included in the rate. The cities that are a bit less expensive for assisted living are Fort Junction, Greeley and Grand Junction.

Room Requirements for Colorado Assisted Living

There are a few grandfather clauses in the room occupancy requirements for assisted living in Colorado. If the senior care facility was licensed prior to July, 1 1986, it may allow 4 residents in a room until such time as a remodel takes place or the current occupants are replaced. Any time after that date, only 2 residents per room are allowed. If it’s a private senior assisted living unit, there must be at least 60 square feet per each resident with a minimum of 100 for a single.

If there’s a mixed occupancy of assisted living and memory care, or only an Alzheimer's memory care senior care unit, then each assisted living unit will have security locking geared for the prevention of flight. It’s a good idea to check the rates for memory care in this case which could run several hundred or over a thousand more in addition to the base-rate for the assisted living unit.

There are there some bathroom allowance stipulations. When there are 6 residents, one full bathroom is required. Bathroom sharing is allowed. Prior to January 1, 1992 there’s an 8 resident shared bathroom allowance until remodel or change of residents occur.

Payment Resources for Assisted Living Centers in Colorado

Currently, there are no Medicaid programs nor waiver programs that cover the room and board cost of Colorado assisted living centers. The programs are set aside for nursing home assistance, assistance for blind and disabled and those who wish to stay at home.  The next best way to deal with paying for assisted living in Colorado is to investigate what private benefits you may have for the life you’ve lived. Some of these benefits could be career-related. Public servants have non-profits that help them pay for senior assisted living, adult daycare, nursing home and foster care in whatever capacity they offer.

Other types of benefits that may pay for Colorado assisted living may be a good long-term care insurance. It’s a popular option these days and a lot of companies may accept you in your early 70’s. If you’re a veteran there may be service person or family benefits you may be able to take advantage of to help cover assisted living costs.

Whatever you choose, with a little planning and early strategy, there’s a chance to effectively get ahead with your payments for an assisted living facility in Colorado.
