Assisted Living

Check with the local Area Office on Aging for information about Assisted Living facilities in your area.

Assisted living refers to that level of care where there is 24 hour oversight (someone on the premises full time), assistance with personal care, medication supervision, meals served family style, activities and transportation. Usually the facility which is referred to as "Assisted Living" is a larger building which can accommodate 20 to 40 or more persons. The Board and Care Home is assisted living type care, but is usually smaller, 2-8 persons, and is located in a private home in a residential neighborhood. Colorado homes with more than two beds must be licensed by the State. Requirements for licensure vary from state to state. Check with the local Office on Aging for information about the facilities in your area.

In Larimer County, lists of assisted living facilities are available. These residential resources are described as being designed for individuals who require help with activities of daily living, but do not need the skilled medical care provided in a nursing facility. Care is provided in a home-like environment 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week, in a way that promotes maximum independence and dignity for each resident. Assisted Living Residences may range from privately-owned and managed homes to a section of a retirement or nursing facility.
