In the Denver metro area, there are a wide variety of assisted living facilities, ranging from 100+ unit communities to small residential care homes. If you’re living on your own right now, or in an independent living community for seniors, you might be contemplating a move to assisted living. But how will you know when it’s time? The right time could be now.

Below are the top 10 reasons to move into an assisted living facility in Denver.

Reason #1: You Need Help
The primary reason to move into an assisted living facility is that you need help. That could be help with bathing, dressing, cooking, transferring in and out of bed or chairs, mobility, going to the bathroom, incontinence (bladder or bowels), and/or medications. In an assisted living environment, you can be assured that you’ll get all of the help you need, on a daily basis.

Reason #2: You Don’t Want To Be A Burden
If you’ve been relying on family and friends to fill in the gaps in order for you to stay in your home, moving to an assisted living facility can change that dynamic. If you’re afraid that you’re becoming a burden or asking too much, assisted living can immediately resolve that issue.

Reason #3: A Safe, Worry-Free Environment
Assisted living facilities provide a safe, worry-free environment. Most of the assisted living facilities in the Denver area have emergency call systems in each apartment and/or daily check-ins. If something happens to you, someone will know about it, and quickly!

Reason #4: All Meals Are Provided
At most assisted living communities in the Denver metro area, three meals a day and snacks are included in the monthly cost. Many assisted living apartments have full kitchens or kitchenettes, but it’s still nice to know that you don’t have to cook if you don’t want to.

Reason #5: More Social Life
In assisted living communities, you’ll have access to a built-in support system of acquaintances, companions, and friends. There’s often an array of activities and outings each month, which makes it easier to get to know people.

Reason #6: Transportation Provided
If driving in the Denver metro area scares you, or if you’d just like to do less of it, assisted living gives you an alternative. Most assisted living facilities provide group transportation to shopping, activities, outings, and cultural events. Some facilities also offer individual transportation to your medical appointments.

Reason #7: Your Health Is Declining
If you feel like your health is declining, assisted living can offer the support you need, before something becomes a crisis.

Reason #8: Life Can Change In An Instant
Even if you’re in good health now and able to manage on your own, life can change in an instant. A urinary tract infection, fall, injury, surgery, or illness can knock you off your feet. Or, you can get the flu or pneumonia and be unable to care for yourself. If you’re already living in an assisted living environment, medical challenges can be much easier to handle.

Reason #9: Medicaid Might Pay For It
If you qualify, Medicaid will pay for your assisted living expenses. Not all assisted living facilities in the Denver area accept Medicaid (or accept it without pay-down requirements), so you’ll need research this before you choose a facility.

Reason #10: Peace of Mind
Overall, assisted living can improve your quality of life and provide you with a peace of mind that might have been missing from your life for quite some time.
