What to Consider About Memory Care in Longmont

Colorado's Department of Public Health & Environment regulates assisted living communities, including memory care facilities in Longmont and the rest of the state. They outline provider requirements, oversee licensing and investigate complaints about long-term care facilities. They also perform routine inspections to ensure adherence to regulations and provide a directory for the general public to locate facilities by type.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Longmont

 

  • Longmont residents experience all four seasons, with summer highs hovering around 89 degrees and winter lows around 13 degrees. While the winter averages 36 inches of snow per year, the area sees an average of 247 days of sunshine. This is much higher than the U.S. average of 205 days.
  • Longmont's water quality index is ranked 100/100. While this is based on the watershed quality, the EPA asserts that healthy watersheds closely relate to the quality of drinking water.
  • Boulder County, including Longmont, has been a member of the AARP Age-Friendly Network, which means that it is dedicated to meeting the needs of senior residents by making necessary improvements to infrastructure and services. The county's plan includes improving access to affordable housing and health care for seniors.
  • Longmont has 322 physicians per 100,000 people, which is over 50% more than the national average of 210. Residents should have no trouble finding quality health care providers. It's also home to a UCHealth Neurology Clinic, where residents can receive high-quality care for Alzheimer's and similar conditions. The clinic provides advanced diagnostic and treatment technology.
  • Generally, Longmont is considered a safe city. On a scale of 1 to 100, Longmont scores 19.1 for violent crime and 35.4 for property crime. The national averages are 22.7 and 35.4, respectively. Memory care communities are often safer as they typically employ security measures that deter would-be criminals.
  • On an index with 100 being the national average, the cost of living in Longmont is a 120.3. While this is higher than the U.S. norm, it's also on par with the state. However, the cost of health care scores an 85.5, meaning it is more affordable to receive care in Longmont than across the nation for comparable services.
  • The sales tax rate in Longmont is somewhat higher than the national norm, at 8.5%. Residents will also pay an income tax of 4.6%. However, Colorado as a whole is relatively tax friendly. Social Security income, withdrawals from retirement accounts and public and private pension income are all only partially taxed rather than being taxed at the state income level.
