    What to Consider About Memory Care in Grand Junction

    The city of Grand Junction is home to just over 62,000 people, and almost 17 percent of the population is aged 65 and over. Residents who are living with Alzheimer's disease or another type of dementia can find accommodation in one of the city's four memory care facilities.

    In Colorado, the Department of Public Health and Environment licenses and monitors assisted living residences that care for people with dementia. There are around 71,000 people in the state with Alzheimer's disease and facilities that offer dementia care must provide specialized training to staff and secure buildings and outside areas for residents.

    • Retirement income from all sources is subject to state income tax in Colorado, including Social Security, pensions and retirement funds. However, there is a retirement income deduction for people aged over 55 and the size of the deduction increases when seniors turn 65. This can decrease, or even eliminate, the tax bill, leaving more money available for memory care.
    • The Grand Junction area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as St. Mary's Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The cost of living in Grand Junction is rated at 102 in the Sperling index, slightly higher than the national average of 100. However, health care costs in the city are rated at 94, making them more affordable than the U.S. average of 100. This can help decrease costs for seniors with health conditions.
    • Grand Junction is hot in summer, with July high temperatures averaging around 94 degrees. In winter, low temperatures in the teens are common and the city gets around 18 inches of snow each year. Families may wish to ask the facilities they tour how residents are kept comfortable in both extreme heat and extreme cold.
