What to Consider About Memory Care in Parker
Parker is a town with just over 54,000 residents, less than 7 percent of whom are seniors citizens. It is situated within the state of Colorado, where the Alzheimer's Association estimates that approximately 71,000 people are currently living with Alzheimer's disease. The area is served by the Alzheimer's Association of Colorado, which provides local resources for seniors with dementia.
While Parker has a relatively small senior population, the town has two memory care facilities that serve seniors with dementia and an additional 19 facilities in the surrounding region. Memory care facilities are generally housed within existing assisted living facilities that have secured environments for residents with dementia.
- While the overall cost of living in Parker is about 55 percent higher than the U.S. average, this is mainly due to the high cost of housing in the area. Healthcare expenses are 5 percent lower than in other U.S. cities, which may appeal to seniors and their families on a budget.
- Winters in Parker are cold and very dry, which may be a consideration for seniors who prefer a more comfortable year-round climate. The January low is around 20 degrees Fahrenheit, and the city receives about 66 inches of annual snowfall. Summers are warm with highs in the mid-80s and virtually no humidity, which can make it a very agreeable season for seniors with arthritis.
- Colorado is among the few states that impose an income tax on all forms of retirement income, including Social Security benefits. However, the state provides a generous deduction, which partially or even entirely offsets this expense.
- With a crime rate that is lower than 51 percent of Colorado's cities and notably lower than other U.S. cities of a similar size, Parker is a safe city where local seniors and their families can enjoy peace of mind.
