    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Alamosa

    Alamosa is situated in the San Luis Valley in the southern region of Colorado and is widely recognized for its scenic sights. Seniors,10% of the city's 9,000 residents, can visit the Alamosa Wildlife Refuge, an 11,000-acre sanctuary with over 200 species of birds and other wildlife. 

    Seniors requiring some assistance with daily living activities like grooming and bathing may reside in one of Alamosa's four assisted living facilities. In this city, as in all of the state, assisted living facilities are officially known as assisted living residences, and they are licensed by the Department of Public Health and Environment.  

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Alamosa

    • Alamosa is a vibrant city with a variety of arts and cultural attractions for residents. Among the most popular is the Creede Repertory Theatre, which hosts special events and live shows throughout the year. Seniors are eligible for a discount on tickets.
    • Alamosa has an array of community resources for seniors, including South-Central Colorado Seniors, Inc., an organization that provides mobility assistance programs, individual counseling and assistance in gaining access to services, as well as one senior center. 
      • The Alamosa area is home to world-class medical facilities, including San Luis Valley Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
      • Public bus service in Alamosa is provided by Bustang, which operates a fixed route that begins at the northeast side of the city and ends in Pueblo. Seniors age 65 and over who provide their Medicare card or their transit ID receive a discount on their fare.  
      • Colorado's sales tax is fairly high, but food and medicine are tax-exempt. While all retirement income, including Social Security and government pensions, are taxed, the state's income tax system allows for retirees to claim a large deduction to minimize the expense.
