    What to Consider About Memory Care in Boulder

    Over 10 percent of Boulder's 107,000 residents are aged over 65. Residents with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia can find assistance in one of the city's two memory care facilities. Another four can be found in the nearby communities of Louisville, Broomfield and Longmont.

    It's estimated that 71,000 Colorado residents have Alzheimer's disease and the  the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment licenses and monitors assisted living residences, including those in Boulder, for people with dementia. These facilities must provide specialized training to staff and provide secure buildings and outside areas for residents.

    • Ozone pollution in Boulder County, including Boulder city, is high, with the city receiving a failing grade for this category in the State of the Air Report 2018. Particle pollution is lower and the city received passing grades in these categories. Families of seniors with respiratory conditions may need to investigate how this will affect their health.
    • Boulder has cold winters and warm summers. The average high temperature in July is 88 degrees, and the January low averages just 18. The city gets 245 days of sunshine each year, giving seniors plenty of opportunity to relax outdoors. However, there's around 95 inches of snow each year, almost 70 inches more than the national average, which can keep people inside over winter.
    • All sources of retirement income are taxable in Colorado; however, the state has deductions available for seniors which may reduce tax bills. In addition, groceries and medicine are sales tax exempt allowing families to budget more memory care for their loved ones.
    • The Boulder area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Boulder Community Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
