Retirement communities and assisted living services and amenities can vary greatly from one facility to the other. The main thing to remember is that you can consider each of them and compare their services patiently, rather than rushing in and possibly finding a facility that you and your senior loved ones will not be satisfied with.
To enumerate the services that are generally provided, it’s important to note that some of them are more generic and they apply to everybody, while others are specifically targeting elders that are more fragile and less capable of taking care of themselves on their own.
The generic services will typically include at least one or two cooked meals per day, cleaning and maintenance staff to keep the facility running without having to involve the elder, repair specialists and contractors, as well as typical checkups offered by nurses and doctors to all the residents.
Some assisted living and luxury retirement communities in Denver will, of course, have special amenities and services that are less common and available if you pay a little extra, but almost all of them will have specifically tailored medical and assistance services for elders who can no longer wash or cook for themselves, who need help with remembering basic things (like taking their medication) and those who need special massages or therapy sessions on a daily or weekly basis.
