    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fort Collins

    • Although Fort Collins is not a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, it is located in Larimer County, which has been a member since December 2017.

    • Colorado has a generous senior-friendly tax policy. Residents can take advantage of large deductions of up to $24,000 a year on most kinds of retirement income. Groceries and medications are also tax-exempt.

    • The cost of living in Fort Collins is fairly expensive at 24.2 percent higher than the national average. Much of that is due to housing prices. Healthcare costs are also slightly more expensive. 

    • Fort Collins has a fairly mild climate, with average highs in the mid-80s during the hottest months of the year and highs in the mid-40s during December and January. However, during the colder months, snow and ice may sometimes make it difficult to get around; although, it often melts quickly. Fort Collins gets about 57 inches of snow a year. March is the snowiest month with an average of about 13 inches.

    • It can be difficult to get around Fort Collins without a car, but the Transfort bus system provides some options. Seniors with disabilities may qualify for the Dial-A-Ride program, which provides scheduled door-to-door transportation. Senior Alternatives in Transportation is a volunteer service that also provides rides throughout the Fort Collins area.

    • The air quality in Fort Collins is fairly poor. Ozone is the biggest problem, with the American Lung Association ranking it 19th out of 227 cities for high ozone levels. Hot, sunny days are particularly bad. Wildfires can also contribute to poor air quality during the summer.
