Retiring in Westminster, CO, allows residents to take regular field trips to enjoy the great outdoors, explore new places, and then return home to a resort-style community and carefree lifestyle. Our independent living community located just outside of Denver has plenty of outdoor recreational opportunities, and the state is ranked as one of the healthiest locations in the United States. Westminster and the surrounding area have the highest-rated independent living communities in the state, offering older adults the best of Colorado’s active living.


San Marino senior living community offers exceptional senior care services where residents are empowered to choose their best life – starting with their accommodations. Residents can choose from apartment homes or patio homes with a variety of floor plans, depending on their preferences and care needs.

Independent Apartments are located in the Village Estates at San Marino. There are twenty-two apartments in this portion of our senior living community, and these apartments are designed for active, independent seniors who enjoy a strong sense of community. Our senior housing community includes patio homes, just one option among our senior living community, which are part of The Village at San Marino campus, where seniors live naturally and independently. There are 19 patio homes clustered around a beautifully landscaped courtyard.


Independent living communities are more than places to live. They are a lifestyle choice for older adults looking to simplify their lives. Offering resort-style amenities, healthcare services, less yard work, and fewer overall responsibilities, seniors in independent living communities regain the time they have earned doing what they want to do when they want to do it.

Moving to senior living is a big decision, and it’s one many of our residents wish they had made sooner. San Marino senior living and independent living supports an active lifestyle and offers residents a highly engaging social life, the opportunity to pursue new interests while continuing to develop lifelong hobbies – and do it all without worrying about home maintenance, housekeeping, or meal prep. To put it simply, it’s a win-win situation.

At San Marino, residents have the best of both worlds – an independent lifestyle, while also having access to services and fantastic amenities that enhance their quality of life. We offer an independent lifestyle paired with assisted services such as three meals a day, weekly housekeeping, 24-hour staff on campus, and an emergency call system. As an added benefit, San Marino offers a continuum of care services, including personalized assisted living and memory care services, as well as memory care apartments, so that residents can stay in our community and live life, even if needs should change over time. Our dedicated staff is well-trained to provide a range of senior care services, while also actively engaging residents. At San Marino, our residents know they are part of a larger family, doing what it takes to engage residents mentally, emotionally, and socially.



Residents in independent living often wish they had made the move to a senior community earlier. Independent living communities offer seniors a less stressed life with more time and freedom to spend time as they wish. Imagine a world without the worry of home maintenance, without watching bills piling up, and without worrying about snow and ice removal. Imagine having a vibrant community right outside your door, while also being near your peaceful and spacious home. Independent living offers it all.


When moving to a senior community, it is important to understand the various levels of care being offered in that particular community. In independent living, residents live independently, without care services from staff. At San Marino, residents can age in place, if care needs do increase over time. In assisted living, residents receive assistance with activities of daily living including dressing, personal hygiene, dining, mobility assistance, medication management, and more.


Residents in independent living have access to resort-style amenities and services. From personal concierge services to a dynamic social and activities calendar, every day in independent living can look a bit different. Some mornings include a group exercise class or a personal training session and maybe a game, or an art class in the afternoon. Some residents may decide to spend the day exploring the best of Colorado living. Residents receive three meals a day in our restaurant-style dining room and can visit our bistro for snacks and beverages throughout the day. Find a new hobby or return to your lifelong interests – the choice is yours at San Marino.


One visit to San Marino and you’ll know why retiring in Westminster, CO is a good choice. Stunning majestic mountain views, four mild seasons, a focus on health throughout the state, and an abundance of outdoor recreational activities will draw you in. Oh, and did we mention the tax breaks for retirees in the state?


There are several ways to pay for senior care and a variety of options that can help people pay for a senior community with a range of budgets. It is important to remember that the majority of expenses in senior living is all-inclusive. You can forget about your utility bills, the majority of your grocery bill, and even your entertainment budget.

    What We Have Done…Where We Are

    As we travel through this unprecedented time, we continue to take extraordinary measures to keep our residents, staff, and families safe. As we move forward, we will continue to work with local and state officials, in coordination with the CDC, to stay informed. We are providing peace of mind, fine living options and the best alternative to being alone.

    Without a doubt, the health and safety of our residents is always our top priority. To be certain we are on track to provide excellent service, good health and peace of mind, we have been in constant communication with our residents, their family members and our professional colleagues.

    One of the great things about our senior living communities is our spirit of togetherness. Yes, we are following the social distancing recommendations, and basic quarantine procedures, but because of the successful work we have done these past months, we are now offering safe, in-person tours of our community. We are open and admitting new residents. We are creating activities for our residents to keep them engaged and enjoying their days. We will strive to prevent loneliness and isolation at every turn. We are fostering a true spirit of friendship and togetherness. At a time when many seniors are isolated at home, we have each other!

    We would also like to offer the sincerest appreciation for our incredible staff for everything they’re doing to keep our residents safe and healthy. We can never thank our frontline team enough, especially in times like this.

    We know now that this can be a safe time to move. All new residents will be required to have a negative COVID-19 test OR will be able to self-quarantine for 14 days upon move in. We have strict protocols for the moving process. We have vetted moving companies to assure a safe move-in process. Our infection control measures remain firmly in place. There are healthy guidelines to follow for new residents to keep them and others protected. We have a special quarantine activity program to help the days pass quickly and assure they settle in successfully.

    If you need assistance, we will help you stay connected to your loved one through phone calls, and other video mediums, so you can keep your distance, but stay in touch. We are sending cards and letters and speaking by telephone as much as possible. We have each other to lean on during this time. We are apart but not alone.

    Please call us to learn more. We are here for you.

    BE WELL!!!
