Arvada Estates Independent Living


You can find the best senior living in Denver at Arvada Estates, tucked inside the quiet, tree-lined neighborhood of historic Arvada, Colorado, just outside of Denver. As a Senior Lifestyle Independent Living community, Arvada Estates offers Independent Living in the Denver area. With first-class amenities, residents live their lives to the fullest among the Rocky Mountains.


When you live in beautiful Arvada Estates, we take care of the chores so that you can live your life pursuing your passions, or simply enjoying a life of leisure. Our beautifully furnished common areas include game rooms, a newly remodeled exercise room, an elegant dining room, library, activity rooms, and more. Life in this Denver-area senior living community also includes our dining services, housekeeping, award-winning programs, fitness center access, daily wellness checks, comprehensive therapy services, and weekly transportation to doctors appointments. We’ve designed Arvada Estates for you to live according to your desires and follow your passions at your own pace.


Established in 1870 among the western foothills of the majestic Rockies, Arvada was the site of the first documented discovery of gold in the Rocky Mountain region. Today, locals enjoy farmers markets, biking, golf, and plenty of other outdoor pursuits. The Arvada Center for the Arts & Humanities features theater performances and art exhibits year-round; the Apex Park and Recreation Center offers fun and safe ways to stay active both outdoors and in; and Olde Town Arvada is the city’s historic downtown district and packed with shopping, dining, and entertainment for everyone. From Arvada Estates, residents have easy access to everything Arvada has to offer, including top-tier healthcare facilities.


While some communities insist on new residents putting down huge, non-refundable payments up-front, we like to do things a little differently. We care about not only the physical and emotional well being of our residents, but their financial health as well. That’s why we offer our residents all the perks of country club living without the expensive buy-in—just a simple lease.

Dining at Arvada Estates

Live Well, Dine Well

Allow our professionally trained service staff to present you with delicious dishes made from locally sourced ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At Senior Lifestyle, dining is an integral part of the resident experience, and we do everything we can to delight you with a personalized dining experience.

Dining Directors and Executive Chefs meet with residents to discuss and incorporate enhancements to the menu, special requests, favorite recipes or foods, and unless otherwise specified by state regulations we offer therapeutic diets such as reduced concentrated sweets, mechanical soft and purée. Residents can select healthy, locally sourced options based on the nutritional information, or they can simply opt to choose their favorites. And we always encourage residents and relatives to make special arrangements when expecting a family visit!
