Weld County Resources for Senior Citizens
GUIDE TO INDEPENDENT LIVING IN COLORADO
Aging comes with a lot of changes. One transition many seniors and their families face is moving to a place where they can get more hands-on care. Independent living is a popular choice for relatively able-bodied seniors who want to reside in communities designed with older residents in mind.
Our new guide compares the costs for independent living communities in Colorado. It also highlights independent living costs with other types of senior care and lists some helpful resources for aging adults and their families.
