Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Castle Rock

  • AdventHealth Castle Rock sits in Castle Rock proper and offers a variety of health care services, including heart care, imaging services and emergency care. Although this hospital doesn’t provide diagnostic services and treatment for dementia, it provides referrals for local neurologists who offer this type of care.
  • Out of Colorado’s 59 surveyed counties, Castle Rock’s Douglas County ranks top in the state for general health and in the 75-100th percentile for health factors and outcomes, indicating access to care for seniors managing conditions such as dementia. The average life expectancy is among the highest in the nation at 83.4 years compared to 78.5 nationally, and per 100,000 people, only 170 people die at age 75 or younger. The county also reports a preventable hospitalization rate of 1,634 per 100,000 Medicare beneficiaries, which is well below the national norm of 2,809.
  • Living costs in Castle Rock run high, with residents paying about 13.7% more for basic expenses than the U.S. norm. Health care expenses come about 23% higher here than in a typical U.S. city, and housing prices exceed the national norm by 21%. Fortunately, the Elderly, Blind and Disabled Waiver covers residential memory care services for qualified individuals, helping those with budgetary considerations to afford local living and long-term care expenses.
  • The AARP Livability Index gives Castle Rock a score of 57 compared to the average U.S. city rating of 48, marking it as one of the most favorable cities in the nation for retirees. Unlike most of the nation, the city doesn’t report a shortage in health care workers, and about 76.7% of hospital patients report satisfaction with their care compared to the national norm of 69%. Additionally, there are two cultural institutions within 15 miles per 10,000 people, offering opportunities for early-stage engagement activities.
  • Colorado taxes all retirement income, including Social Security benefits. However, it has a deduction of up to $24,000 for those aged 65 and over, reducing or even eliminating memory care residents’ tax obligations and helping them afford long-term care expenses in Castle Rock.
