    What to Consider About Memory Care in Denver County

    Denver County's population of 704,621 people includes 11.6 percent (about 81,736) seniors age 65 and older. Using the county's Medicare enrollment as a guide, an estimated 11.7 percent (9,563) of those people are living with Alzheimer's disease and would benefit from specialized care in a state-regulated assisted living facility.

    The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment and the Colorado Council on Assisted Living licenses and oversees the operation of these residences throughout the state. Denver County has a total of 16 of them.

    • The violent crime rate in Denver County is greater than the national average by 51.3 to 31.1, and the property crime rate is 55.5 compared to 38.1 nationally. Assisted living facilities must have robust security systems to safeguard the residents. Self-locking doors, cameras and guards are commonly used to keep facilities secure, so families won't worry.
    • Denver County gets more snow annually than rain. Compared to the national averages, Denver is 22 inches below the 39-inch norm for rainfall and 30 inches above the average snowfall of 26 inches. The county enjoys 245 sunny days per year, which is 40 more than the national average. Temperatures climb to 90 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer and can sink as low as 19 degrees during winter. Denver County's Comfort Index is 72 out of 100, and its dry weather can be beneficial for seniors with respiratory issues.
    • The cost of living in Denver County is 144, which is 44 points over the national median of 100. The housing rating is 225, 125 percent greater than the U.S. average. Healthcare costs are lower than the norm at 96. Families may want to set aside extra money for healthcare services senior family members may need.
    • Denver's brown cloud still affects its air quality. The American Lung Association gave the county a grade of "D" for both ozone and particle pollution. Seniors with preexisting medical conditions such as lung cancer, asthma, or cardiovascular disease may want to consider air quality when searching for an assisted living facility.
