Assisted Living in Thornton, Colorado

Thornton is just outside of the Denver city center and considered part of the metro area. This part of the state combines the best of two worlds, breathtaking mountains with plenty of opportunities for fishing, hiking, or skiing and the robust cultural scene of Denver. Closer to home, seniors here may choose to take in a concert by the Aurora Symphony Orchestra, visit the Hills Harvest farmers market in the summer and fall months, or simply stroll downtown and have a cup of coffee or shop in a local boutique. Thornton has cold, snowy winters, but the spring, summer and fall are pleasant and warm. Although Thornton has a cost of living slightly higher than the national average, Colorado does offer some tax breaks on retirement income, which may benefit some seniors. 

The average monthly cost for assisted living in Thornton is $4,500, although the cost for individual facilities will vary.
