What to Consider About Assisted Living in Greeley

The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment regulates assisted living facilities in Greeley and the rest of the state. This department sets standards for the scope of care facilities provide, and it fields and investigates complaints regarding unsafe or unsanitary conditions and substandard care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Greeley

  • The American Lung Association gives Weld County, where Greeley is located, a passing score for annual particle pollution but the lowest grades for short-term particle and ozone pollution. This may be a concern for seniors with conditions such as COPD and heart disease, but to help them stay active, assisted living facilities plan indoor activities throughout the year.
  • Greeley-Evans Transit provides public transportation in Greeley and surrounding cities. It operates several fixed routes, along with a door-to-door paratransit service, reducing seniors’ reliance on private vehicles.
  • Greeley is a member of the AARP Age-Friendly Network, indicating that its officials have made strides toward making the city a safe and comfortable community for people of all ages. Across the surveyed metrics, Greeley received its strongest scores in Transportation, Housing and Neighborhood.
  • Health care options are limited in Greeley, with the city having half the number of doctors per capita compared to the typical U.S. city, but health-related costs are about 4% lower than the national average. There are two hospitals within the city proper, including North Colorado Medical Center and UCHealth Greeley Hospital, providing seniors with access to primary, specialty and emergency care.
  • Winters in Greeley tend to be harsh, with low temperatures near 15 degrees and about 40 inches of annual snowfall, but the weather is generally comfortable throughout the rest of the year. The city gets 244 sunny days and 15 inches of rainfall annually, compared to 205 sunny days and 38 inches of rain nationally. Assisted living residents have a range of indoor and outdoor recreational activities to choose from throughout the year, letting them spend as much or as little time outdoors as they prefer.
  • While the cost of living in Greeley is a bit higher than in the United States as a whole, the city is an affordable place to live compared to the rest of Colorado. Most living expenses, including health care services, groceries and transportation, are more affordable here than in other U.S. cities. Housing costs are high, but seniors can avoid related expenses by opting for assisted living.
