Denver, Colorado is one of the best cities for staying fit and active. The proximity to nature and regular sunshine keeps people out and about. It’s an appealing lifestyle that caters to a younger generation.
The average age of people in the Denver area is just under 35, and nearly 70 percent of residents are under 44.
That doesn’t mean seniors won’t enjoy living in Denver, but those interested in staying active and enjoying their retirement, just need to know where to look. If you’re looking for active assisted living, south Denver and the surrounding suburbs are excellent places for older adults to check out.
Civitas Senior Living is one of the fastest-growing senior living companies in the nation. They brought their vision of active and passionate living for older adults to Littleton, Colorado in 2020. StoneCreek of Littleton is a new way of thinking about assisted living and memory care.
This resort-style community less than 30-minutes from Downtown Denver is where miracles happen every day.
Active Senior Living: Littleton, CO
Assisted living isn’t only for people who are frail or very old. Many people move to assisted living to extend their level of independence and take advantage of senior care services before they require them.
Less than 45 percent of Colorado assisted living residents are over 85, and fewer than 50 percent of them need help with activities of daily living (ADLs) like dressing, ambulation, or eating. Another 48 percent live with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Choosing a senior living community that offers multiple levels of care can make aging in place more accessible than attempting to do so at home. Active seniors often turn to retirement communities or independent living facilities, but those options don’t always offer the higher level of care some people may need.
If you or a loved one wants to stay active, social, and live with passion, StoneCreek of Littleton can’t wait to welcome you home.

What about senior care?
If you’re considering an assisted living facility for the care aspect, StoneCreek of Littleton provides multiple levels of support.
Health care services in assisted living and memory care are not as high as in a skilled nursing center or nursing home. Those facilities are best for seniors recovering from surgery or injury and require short-term medical care. They also cater to people with chronic conditions who cannot live independently.
My Wellness ensures older adults receive the care they need to live the life they want. We will design an individualized care plan with you and your family upon moving in. Following a health assessment and recommendations from our wellness team, everyone can be on board with what to expect.
Team members and families can redesign care plans at any time to fit the needs of residents. My Care Conference is a regularly scheduled meeting to assess whether individuals need health care changes. This conference also examines residents’ social, physical, and mental needs.
Families can follow their loved one’s journey by using the Sagely app. This helpful tool automates many administrative tasks and health records for team members. Families and residents can use it to view events, view care actions, and keep in touch.
Our compassionate team members provide ADLs and regular check-ins to ensure residents can continue their active lifestyles.
Littleton Memory Care
Memory care at StoneCreek of Littleton is available in The Cottage. Our smaller care environment is a secure and calm atmosphere for seniors living with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Our specialized care team in The Cottage provides individualized activities and care services that give residents a sense of purpose and community.
Our dementia care community focuses on providing seniors with a clean and fulfilling lifestyle. We use purposeful activities to help relieve older adults of their anxiety and confusion. Socialization and building new relationships are other cornerstones of our approach to care.
Family members can use The Cottage as a resource when providing home care gets to be too much to manage. Current assisted living residents can transition to memory care if needed and continue living in a familiar environment.
