What to Consider About Memory Care in Littleton
Littleton is situated in the north-central region of Colorado, a state that is listed as a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States. Colorado is home to about 71,000 people with Alzheimer's disease, a disease that is diagnosed primarily in those age 65 and over.
The city of Littleton has a sizable senior community that accounts for over 17 percent of the 48,000-person population. To serve seniors with dementia, the city has six memory care facilities, and there are nearly five dozen more facilities in nearby cities. Generally, these are located within assisted living facilities that provide specialized care.
- While Colorado seniors pay income tax on all types of retirement income, including Social Security, the state offers a sizable deduction to minimize the expense. Littleton seniors 65 and up are eligible for a $24,000 deduction, and for married couples, each person can claim the deduction.
- Littleton's crime rate is higher than 77 percent of Colorado's cities, but it is middle of the pack when compared to other U.S. cities of similar size. While families enjoy peace of mind that their loved ones are safe in memory care in this city, they may still want to find out what measures their loved ones' facilities take to keep resident secure and prevent wandering.
- Overall, living costs are about 46 percent higher in Littleton than they are elsewhere in the country, but this is mainly due to the high cost of real estate. While this may result in a higher cost for room and board in a memory care facility, this expense may be offset by the relatively low cost of healthcare, which is about 2 percent lower than the national median.
- Littleton has hot summers and chilly winters. The hottest month is July when temperatures are in the upper-80s, but there is virtually no humidity, making the climate more comfortable. Winters are harsh with lows in the teens, and the city receives an average of 80 inches of annual snowfall. This can make local travels a challenge for families visiting loved ones in memory care.
