What to Consider About Memory Care in Englewood

 

The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment oversees memory care facilities in Englewood. It licenses these facilities as assisted living residences and imposes standards for care planning, staff training and building requirements, as well as increased requirements for staff training and building security.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Englewood

  • Swedish Medical Center, the region’s largest not-for-profit hospital, sits within Englewood proper and offers a broad range of medical services and community outreach programs, including online and in-person support groups, lectures and classes. The hospital has a dedicated senior care team that specializes in a range of age-related issues, including dementia.
  • Property crime occurs more frequently in Englewood than in a typical U.S. community, but violent crime happens much less often. On a 100-point crime index, the city rates 76.4 for property-related criminal activity, compared to the nation's average rating of 35.4. However, the violent crime score comes in about nine points below the nationwide norm at 13.9, which may provide peace of mind to seniors and families considering local memory care communities.
  • Englewood offers a seasonal climate with warm summers and cold, snowy winters, appealing to older adults who enjoy changing scenery. Year-round temperatures range from lows of 23 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter to highs of 88 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer, and conditions are rarely humid. To engage residents, memory care facilities often offer sensory experiences throughout the year, including gardening activities and picnics.
  • Englewood’s overall cost of living rates are about three points above the state norm and 24% higher than the national average on a 100-point index. While high transportation and housing costs can be prohibitive for those with limited incomes, memory care facilities typically offer all-inclusive pricing and some accept the state's Elderly, Blind and Disabled Waiver, which may make them an affordable alternative to living alone.
  • Colorado has a flat income tax rate of 4.4% and imposes taxes on all forms of income. Fortunately, seniors aged 65 and over in Colorado can claim a deduction of up to $24,000 on their state income taxes, which can help many afford memory care expenses in Englewood.

 

Paying for Memory Care in Englewood

Note: Residential memory care is usually offered in assisted living facilities, and in general, memory care rates tend to be 20-30% higher than assisted living rates.

Memory care communities in Englewood charge $6,875 per month for specialized dementia care services.
