What to Consider About Memory Care in Pueblo

In Pueblo, memory care communities are monitored and licensed by the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment. This department publishes information on licensing requirements as well as the scope of care facilities that administer dementia services must provide. It also fields and follows up on reports of abuse or neglect.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Pueblo

  • The American Lung Association gives Pueblo a B for short-term particle pollution, indicating that its air quality is generally good. The city’s clean air may be beneficial for seniors with cardiovascular or respiratory conditions exacerbated by pollution.
  • The Senior Resource Development Agency provides curb-to-curb transportation services in wheelchair-accessible vans for seniors in Pueblo, helping them attend medical appointments and errands. To schedule services, seniors must make a reservation at least 48 hours in advance.  
  • While seniors in Colorado owe state income taxes on all types of retirement income, including Social Security benefits, the state lets those aged 65 and over take a retirement income deduction of $24,000. This can reduce or eliminate an individual’s state income tax obligation and leave more money in the bank for memory care.
  • Pueblo is one of the most budget-friendly places to live in Colorado, letting many seniors maintain a comfortable standard of living on fixed incomes. On a 100-point index based on a U.S. norm of 100, Pueblo’s overall cost of living rates 88.6. This is about 11% below the national cost of living and 30 percentage points below the state norm.
  • Property and violent crime rates are relatively high in Pueblo, which may make residential dementia care a preferred alternative to living alone. The city rates 47.3 for violent crime and 90.4 for property-related offenses on a 100-point index. By comparison, the respective national scores are 22.7 and 35.4. Memory care facilities in the city keep residents safe with alarm systems, secured entry and exit points and video surveillance.
  • Pueblo is one of the warmest places to live in Colorado, with daytime temperatures ranging from 47 degrees in the winter to 93 degrees in the summer. Humidity levels are generally very low, and the city gets 25 inches of snowfall and 13 inches of rain annually. Memory care facilities keep residents comfortable through measures such as individual climate control and indoor activities.
  • Two hospitals, including St. Mary – Corwin Hospital and Parkview Medical Center, serve Pueblo residents, providing a broad range of medical services to older adults managing chronic conditions.
