    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Brighton

    Brighton has a fairly young population — 37,585 people live there, and the median age is 37.4. So it's not surprising that there are only two assisted living facilities within the city limits. However, with 15 more communities in nearby areas, seniors have plenty of options. The Department of Public Health and Environment, Health Facilities and Emergency Medical Services Division regulates these facilities. Seniors can view the entire 44-page Code of Colorado Regulations on the Colorado Secretary of State's website to learn more about assisted living policies and procedures.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Brighton

    • Brighton lies in both Adams County and Weld County, which received different ratings from The American Lung Association. Adams County has decent air quality with an ozone grade of C, and 24-hour particle pollution score of B. The northern part of Brighton, however, received an F and C, respectively, which may adversely affect seniors with respiratory illnesses.

    • The average cost of living in Colorado is 16.7 percent more than the national average. However, Brighton's average cost of living is slightly lower at 15.9 percent above the national average. This means it's more affordable than the rest of the state.

    • Seniors may find piece-of-mind knowing that Brighton has a low rate of violent crime. At 19.6 out of 100 (1 being the safest), Brighton's score is much less than the U.S. average of 31.1. 

    • Brighton's 41-inch annual snowfall is nearly double the U.S. average of 26. In January, the average low temperature falls to 15 degrees, which can make it difficult for seniors who enjoy being out and about. The summer season in Brighton, on the other hand, is sunny and hot with July highs of 90 degrees.

    • Brighton has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Friends Program Fund, an organization that helps seniors in Brighton pay for activities and enrichment classes at the local senior center.

    • Seniors in Brighton have access to VIA, a city bus that takes seniors to medical appointments, grocery stores and the Eagle View Adult Center for free.
