What to Consider About Assisted Living in Brush

Brush, Colorado, has been recognized by the National Civic League as an All-America small-town, meaning it is a community where citizens from all backgrounds come together and act to solve local problems. Of the town's more than 5,000 residents, nearly 17 percent are aged 65 or older. 

Seniors who choose an assisted living facility in Brush join a community with historical landmarks, low crime and beautiful parks. There are two assisted living facilities in Brush and two more in the neighboring city of Fort Morgan. Colorado's Department of Public Health and Environment licenses these facilities as Assisted Living Residences.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Brush

  • Brush's relatively low living costs may help seniors stretch their money further. Brush's cost of living is 16 percent below the U.S. average and 48 percent below the Colorado state average. 
  • Colorado's tax laws have pros and cons for seniors living in Brush. Social Security and other retirement income is taxable; however, people 55 and older get a generous deduction, which increases when they turn 65.
  • Assisted living residences in Brush may organize outings for residents. These could include shopping, taking in a movie at the historic Sands Theatre, strolling through a local park, or perusing exhibits at the Brush Area Museum & Cultural Center.
  • Brush's extreme seasonal temperatures may limit how much time seniors want to spend outside. January is the coldest month, with an average low of 13, and July is the hottest month, with an average high of 91.
  • The Brush area is home to world-class medical facilities, including The East Morgan County Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Brush is generally considered a safe town for seniors, with an overall crime rate below the U.S. median. On a scale of one to 100, where 100 is highest, Brush has a violent crime rate of 28.5 and a property crime rate of 25.2. The national averages are 31.1 and 38.1, respectively. 

Paying for Assisted Living in Brush

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Brush

Colorado provides an Optional State Supplement for seniors who receive Supplemental Security Income. Low-income seniors in Brush may also be eligible for one of Colorado's two Medicaid waivers if they meet all the state's criteria. The waivers are known as the Home and Community-Based Services Waiver for Community Mental Health Supports and the Elderly, Blind and Disabled Waiver. Not all assisted living residences accept the waivers, so it's important to ask whether a potential facility is certified to receive Medicaid reimbursement. 

Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Colorado page.
