What to Consider About Assisted Living in Centennial

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment regulates assisted living communities in the state. It licenses facilities that comply with its standards regarding fire safety, health and safety and building code regulations. The department also conducts unannounced inspections and investigates complaints, revoking licenses if facilities fail to maintain the standards the department requires.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Centennial

  • Based on the U.S. average of 100, Centennial's average cost of living index of 134 is high, and it's above Colorado's 120.5. Housing costs appear to be the primary factor, so seniors in assisted living might find their cost of living is lower if they don't own property in the city. 
  • One reason for moving to Centennial is its very low crime rates. With 1 being low and 100 being high, property crime ranks at 20.2, which is significantly below the national average of 35.4. Violent crime is also quite low, ranking at 13.1, whereas the U.S. average is 22.7. Therefore, seniors may feel safer here, including those in assisted living, who benefit from staff on-site 24/7.
  • Centennial generally has a mild climate year-round, although temperatures can drop to a chilly 18 degrees in January and snowfall can be as much as 73 inches. However, summer temperatures often reach a comfortable 88 degrees, and there are only 18 inches of rainfall, far below the national average of 38 inches. Consequently, it's a dry climate with low levels of humidity, which may please seniors with weaker respiratory systems.
  • Older adults may appreciate Centennial's healthy environment, which sees it attain an average health cost index of 98.2/100 (with figures below 100 being better). The air quality index of 54/100 is four points below the national average, but other measurements are more favorable. These include the water quality index of 86/100, which is far above the country's norm of 55 and the 267 physicians per 100,000 people, which is 57 more than the national average. The city is also successfully cleaning up contaminated land with the EPA's Superfund Program, which sees it score 96/100 — above the national average of 87. 
  • Centennial's seniors are usually within minutes of medical facilities, such as Centennial Hospital, a 20-bed center with 24/7 emergency services. The area is also home to The Medical Center of Aurora, a 269-bed acute care hospital, and Littleton Adventist Hospital, a 231-bed faith-based facility specializing in primary care and orthopedics.
