What to Consider About Assisted Living in Golden

Golden, Colorado sits just west of Denver and east of the front range of the Rocky Mountains. In the Golden area, there are 61 assisted living residences, with five located within the city boundaries, and they are governed by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Jefferson County, where Golden is located, provides input on senior housing trends and works on developing livable communities for the elderly through the Jefferson County Aging Well Project

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Golden

  • The Denver area is on the American Lung Association’s most polluted cities list for ozone and short-term particulates, and the Mile-High City’s altitude can affect some seniors with respiratory concerns. However, Golden is closer to the mountains, about 15 miles to the west of Denver, where the air quality is usually clearer.

  • Golden’s property and violent crime scores are 34.1 and 13.6 on a scale to 100, and nearby Denver’s scores are 47.2 and 49.3. Golden is a much quieter city with easy access to metro Denver and less exposure to crime.

  • The Regional Transportation District (RTD) connects Golden to metro Denver, and includes wide-area bus service, light rail, and commuter rail which connects to the airport, all available with senior discounts. The RTD service area also offers Access-a-Ride paratransit service for qualifying seniors and disabled.

  • Jefferson County provides local entertainment in the Golden area including concerts, plays and the arts. The regional transit agency offers seniorride to groups of seniors 10 or more that are interested in attending cultural and entertainment events. 

  • Golden's climate is great for the active senior adult with rainfall of only 19 inches, half the U.S. average of 38 inches, and on average, 242 days per year are sunny. The summer high is around 86 degrees Fahrenheit, and the winter low is 18 degrees.

  • The Denver area cost of living is above the U.S. average rating of 100 at 127.5 and Golden is even higher at 147.5. The cost of housing plays the biggest role in these ratings, however. Seniors can find groceries and health care at rates comparable to the nation's average

It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Golden and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Golden

Although the state of Colorado does not provide support to seniors for the room and board costs of assisted living residences there are several programs that offer supplemental income that can be used for living expenses. Health First Colorado, the state's Medicaid system, supports two wavers that may provide financial assistance to blind or disabled seniors, and the OAP (old age pension) system and optional state supplement for low-income individuals on SSI payments offers additional financial support.

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

More Ways to Pay for Assisted Living

While many families use their own funds or personal assets to pay for assisted living, there are plenty of additional options to cover these costs. Some additional ways to finance assisted living costs include:

  • Veterans Benefits
  • Life Insurance Policy
  • Long-Term Care Insurance
  • Reverse Mortgage

For more information about different ways to finance assisted living, visit our Assisted Living in Colorado page.


Free Assisted Living Resources in Golden

Assisted Living Laws and Regulations in Golden
