What to Consider About Memory Care in Montrose
Almost 22 percent of Montrose's 19,000 residents are aged 65 and older, the people most at risk of Alzheimer's disease. Seniors in the city who are among the 71,000 people in Colorado living with the condition can find accommodation and support in Montrose's single memory care facility. Facilities that offer care to people with dementia are licensed and monitored by Colorado's Department of Public Health and Environment, and they must provide secure buildings and outside areas for residents and specialized training for staff.
- All retirement income in Colorado is subject to state income tax, including money from retirement funds, pensions and Social Security. However, taxpayers aged 55 and older receive deductions that can lower the bill, and the deduction amount rises when they turn 65. This can help seniors and their families budget more towards memory care.
