    The population of Adams County is 503,167, including an estimated 50,000 seniors who are aged 65 or older. About 4,900 of that age bracket are probably living with Alzheimer's disease, based on the figures from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for Medicare enrollment in the county, and it's projected that that number will grow considerably by 2025.

    The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment and the Colorado Council on Assisted Living license and regulate the assisted living facilities that house and supervise those diagnosed with dementia. Three of these facilities are located in Adams County, in the towns of Westminster, Brighton, and Thornton.

    • Adams County's overall cost of living is 31 percent higher than the U.S. median and one percent lower than the rest of Colorado.

Families may want to compare prices of local assisted living facilities to find the best match for their budget.

Violent crime is rated at 45.8, and property crime is 46.2 while the national figures are 31.1 and 38.1 respectively.
