What to Consider About Assisted Living in Sterling

The City of Sterling is located in the north-eastern corner of Colorado and is home to around 14,000 people. The city has a sizable senior population with 16 percent of residents aged 65 and older. There are two assisted living facilities in the city and surrounding areas that cater to independent seniors who need some help with daily activities.

Assisted living facilities in Sterling, and throughout the state, are monitored by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. Colorado facilities that receive Medicaid reimbursements are called Alternative Care Facilities and must meet additional requirements.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Sterling

  • Colorado State, including Sterling, 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.
  • County Express offers on-demand public transportation in Logan County, including Sterling. Seniors aged 60 and older are eligible for discount passes.
  • Sterling offers seniors many opportunities to enjoy art and culture. The city is known for its tree sculptures and bronze artwork and every September Sugar Beet Days brings arts and crafts to the center of the city. The murals that decorate many buildings in the city also bring art to every resident who walks the streets.
  • The Sterling area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Sterling Regional MedCenter, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Sterling has warm summers with an average high in July of 91 degrees. Winters are cold with 25 inches of snow each year and an average low in December of 15 degrees. This may keep seniors inside more than they'd like over the winter months.
  • While all forms of retirement income are subject to income tax in Colorado, the state has a large deduction for people aged 65 and over. The combined sales tax for Sterling is 7 percent but groceries and prescription medicine are exempt, which can help seniors put more money towards their assisted living budget.
