What to Consider About Assisted Living in Florence

Florence has been a Tree City USA community for more than 30 years and seniors retiring to the city will find a beautiful city with plenty of shade. Around 3,500 people call this "great little town" home and more than 18 percent of the population is aged 65 and over. There are four assisted living facilities in the area catering to the senior population, which are administered by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Facilities that receive Medicaid reimbursements are referred to as alternative care facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Florence

  • Florence has white winters, with 41 inches of snow falling on the city each year, 15 inches more than the national average. The average low temperature in January is 19 degrees and the average high in July is 89. Florence gets 264 sunny days annually, 59 more than the U.S. average, which can be appealing to seniors who enjoy the outdoors.
  • The Florence area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Canon City.
  • Fremont County Transit offers public transport to residents of Florence. This door-to-door service must be scheduled in advance. Transport can be provided to some out-of-town appointments if required.
  • Florence's overall crime rate of 15 crimes per 1,000 residents is safer than 50 percent of Colorado's other communities. The violent crime rate is 1.02, more than two points lower than the state average of 3.68. The property crime rate of 13.54 is around half the Colorado rate. This may reassure safety-conscious seniors.
  • Sperling's index rates Florence's overall cost of living as 88. This is 12 points lower than the national average of 100, but it is mainly due to the low cost of housing. The cost of groceries is ranked seven points higher than the U.S. average and healthcare is five points lower. Seniors may be able to save money, depending on what their regular expenses are.
  • Colorado, including Florence, is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
