What to Consider About Memory Care in Pueblo West

There are around 71,000 people in Colorado living with Alzheimer's disease.

There is one memory care facility in the city offering support to people with dementia and a further three in nearby Colorado Springs and Pueblo.

These facilities are monitored and licensed by Colorado's Department of Public Health and Environment.
