What to Consider About Memory Care in Arvada

In Arvada, memory care facilities are licensed and regulated by the Department of Public Health and Environment. This organization ensures that long-term care homes and their staff adhere to the state’s safety and security requirements. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Arvada

  • Arvada’s cost of living is 31.7% higher than the nation’s score of 100 and 11.2% higher than the state median of 120.5. Housing is the most expensive factor. However, utility and health care costs are both lower than state averages. 
  • The city’s water quality is 4 points higher than the U.S. average of 58, making it a good choice for people with respiratory or cardiac health concerns. Arvada’s water quality is also higher than average, at 89 points compared to the national norm of 55. 
  • Arvada sees distinct seasonal change, with hot summers and chilly winters. The city gets 246 sunny days per year, which is more than the U.S. average of 205. It gets significantly higher levels of snowfall than many American cities, at 61 inches annually compared to the nation’s 28. 
  • There are fewer physicians per capita in Arvada than the national average, at 193 per 100,000 people compared to the average of 210 per 100,000. However, the nearby Lutheran Medical Center is nationally recognized in cardiac and vascular care. 
  • Arvada’s property crime rate is 2 points above the nation’s median of 37.4 points. This type of crime, however, shouldn’t be a concern for those living in long-term care facilities. The city’s violent crime rate is significantly lower than average, at 10.5 points compared to the country’s average of 22.7. 
  • Colorado is a member of the AARP’s Age-Friendly Network. This is a great indication that the state is committed to improving infrastructure, resources and services for its aging population.
