What to Consider About Memory Care in Pueblo

The city of Pueblo is situated along the Arkansas River in south-central Colorado, where the Alzheimer's Association projects that about 71,000 people are living with Alzheimer's disease. This disease, which is most prevalent in seniors, is the leading cause of dementia. 

Pueblo has a large senior community that makes up more than 17 percent of the 111,000-person population. Local families searching for memory care for their loved ones have 20 local facilities to choose from, with one in Pueblo and 19 in the surrounding region. In Colorado, memory care facilities are generally located in assisted living facilities that have secured environments for residents with dementia. 

  • Colorado is a moderately tax-friendly state for retirees. While all forms of retirement income, including Social Security benefits and public pensions, are taxed, there is a generous deduction to offset the expense. This may allow for more money to be budgeted toward memory care in Pueblo.
  • The air quality in Pueblo is good, with the county receiving an A for short-term particle pollution and a passing grade for annual particle pollution from the American Lung Association. The city's clean air may be beneficial to seniors who have COPD or asthma.
  • The overall crime rate in Pueblo is relatively high. On a 100-point scale, with a high score indicating more crime, the city's violent crime rate is 69.0, compared to the U.S. average of 31.1, and the property crime rate is 66.6, compared to the U.S. average of 38.1. To keep residents safe, Pueblo's memory care facilities utilize security features like surveillance cameras and alarm systems. 
  • Pueblo is an affordable city to live in, with overall living costs coming in about 10 percent below the national median and health care expenses at about 7 percent less than the national average. This may appeal to families whose senior loved one has a tight memory care budget.
