Living in Colorado is expensive. With population growth and housing costs steadily rising, the need for affordable housing becomes more urgent. The median home price in Denver as of April was $438,300 – rents averaged $1,500.

These factors are sometimes difficult to quantify but play a significant role in senior living.
