Danita Nixon, Founder of Senior Living Advisors of Colorado began working for an online senior living referral agency in January of 2017.
She thought she had found her dream job. She was going to be able to help older adults and their families find senior living communities all over the United States. It seemed like admirable work.
It didn’t take long for Danita to realize that while she was able to help SOME of the people she worked with, others were not happy (at all) with the onslaught of calls they were getting after Danita did her job of referring as many in home care companies and senior living communities to them that she could find. For some her “assistance” just made things more stressful and confusing, and kept their phone ringing off the hook. Danita didn’t feel good about “doing this” to people so she quit the job.
Danita decided in September of 2017 that she could truly serve older adults (and those who care for them) by creating a LOCAL senior referral service. As an independently owned referral service, she could assist her clients by guiding them to the RIGHT communities that met their unique needs, desires and budget. Thus Senior Living Advisors of Colorado was born.
We welcome you to reach out to us. We are here to assist you in navigating what can be the challenging puzzle of finding the RIGHT senior living resources for yourself or a loved one. We look very forward to meeting and serving you!

"Wonderful company - I worked with Danita and Senior Living Advisors of Colorado after being becoming my mother's Guardian/Conservator and having an emergency situation where I needed to find an Assisted Living facility for my mother quickly.
I was very overwhelmed to put it mildly and Danita was simply amazing,she clearly understood our needs and circumstances - not only did she help me find a very nice place for mom but she did it with such kindness and professionalism - I will recommend them to anyone. Thank you for helping us! " K.B. Greeley, Co.
"We contacted Danita shortly after my father-in-law broke his hip because we had no idea what our options were for care after he left rehab. She asked lots of questions in order to completely understand his situation and made some recommendations for next steps based on our unique circumstances. Danita helped us with some talking points for the tough discussion we needed to have with our parents and made arrangements for us to get information and tours at a couple of assisted living facilities. She is a wonderful resource and advocate."
