What to Consider About Memory Care in Castle Rock
With just a little over 62,000 residents, the town of Castle Rock, Colorado, has a small-town feel despite being relatively close to Denver. Although only about 9.1 percent of those residents are age 65 or older, experts project that more than 110,000 Coloradoans will have Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia by 2025. This growing population requires specialized care, and Castle Rock is home to eight memory care facilities designed to help seniors with dementia live safely and comfortably.
In Castle Rock and all of Colorado, memory care facilities are regulated by the Department of Public Health and Environment. Memory care facilities must meet special guidelines in order to care for people with dementia, including providing secure facilities and outdoor spaces. Staff members must also receive at least eight hours of specialized training each year.
- Colorado's Front Range tends to be an expensive place to live, and Castle Rock is no exception. The overall cost of living is ranked at 155.3, which is significantly higher than the U.S. average of 100. However, the majority of that is due to high housing and transportation costs, which may not affect memory care residents. Grocery costs, healthcare and utility prices are all slightly below the national average.
- Colorado's tax policies are generally good for senior residents, which can help people living on fixed budgets. Residents aged 65 years or older can deduct up to $24,000 of their retirement earnings each year, including income from social security benefits, pensions and retirement funds. Groceries and medications are exempt from sales tax.
- Castle Rock's climate is fairly comfortable, although winters can be cold and snowy. Summers tend to be mild and sunny, with highs in the 80s. The area receives about 71 inches of snow a year, which can make it difficult for seniors to enjoy the outdoors during winter months. Winter lows are often in the teens, but sunny winter days can warm up considerably.
