What to Consider About Assisted Living in Monument

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment oversees and licenses assisted living facilities throughout Monument and the state. The agency provides licensure and certification requirements communities must follow. It also offers a searchable facility directory to help seniors find and compare long-term care options in specific counties or cities. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Monument

 

  • In Monument, average temperatures range from 53 degrees to 79 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer and 18 degrees to 47 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter. June to August experiences suitable weather for outdoor recreation. Additionally, assisted living communities provide indoor activities and amenities to enhance resident engagement during unpleasant weather. 

 

  • Monument's cost of living is 5.6% higher than the national average. Residents pay higher average prices for housing, transportation and groceries. However, the city earns an AARP livability index score of 51, placing it in the top half of U.S. communities. Most assisted living facilities offer fixed monthly rates for services, which can alleviate financial concerns for budget-conscious seniors. 

 

  • Colorado is tax-friendly toward seniors. The state partially taxes Social Security benefits, retirement account withdrawals and all types of pension income. Additionally, it provides large deductions on retirement income and exempts property taxes for homeowners aged 65 and older or their surviving spouses. These tax benefits provide additional funding for long-term care costs. 

 

  • Monument ranks in the top 81% of safest U.S. neighborhoods. It earns violent and property crime rates of 2.71 and 18.99 per 1,000 residents, which falls below the national median scores of 4 and 20. Moving to assisted living can further enhance safety, since most communities implement security measures, including 24-hour surveillance and emergency response systems. 

 

  • Monument health care costs fall approximately 3% below the national average. The city offers 201 local physicians per 100,000 residents, which ranks lower than the national average of 210 physicians. Due to its proximity to Colorado Springs, Monument rests near major hospitals, including UCHealth Memorial Hospital North. It also houses an urgent care center and a primary care office. Plus, many assisted living communities offer transportation services to local medical appointments to enable accessible care.
