What to Consider About Memory Care in Thornton

In addition to licensing statewide memory care communities, the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment surveys facilities as part of the Medicare and Medicaid certification process. The team also ensures that providers comply with rules and regulations, which include requirements for specialized dementia care training. It also investigates complaints from residents, their families and members of the public.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Thornton

  • Thornton scores six points above average in AARP’s Livability Index, with particularly favorable ratings in the opportunity, transportation, neighborhood and health categories. The city received its lowest score for housing access and affordability. However, memory care communities offer accessible living environments for aging adults, typically with step-free access, grab rails and easy-to-navigate layouts. Furthermore, lower-income seniors may qualify for financial assistance from Health First Colorado — the state Medicaid program.
  • Colorado offers a reasonably tax-friendly landscape for retirees. Seniors aged 55 and older qualify for yearly income tax deductions of $20,000, increasing to $24,000 when they reach 65. Sales tax exemptions on prescription drugs and groceries may also help reduce older adults’ expenses.
  • As part of the wider Denver area, Thornton benefits from Dementia Friendly Denver’s projects. The non-profit organization educates the public on dementia-related issues and encourages businesses to adopt dementia-friendly policies to improve local living conditions for those impacted by cognitive decline. It also runs training sessions for government employees and religious leaders.
  • Annual living costs in Adams County range from $24,564 to $39,180 for single retirees with health care needs, depending on individuals’ housing situations. Senior homeowners tend to pay slightly lower-than-average living costs, with mortgage-free individuals seeing the most significant savings. Conversely, renters pay around 109% of the national norm.
  • Property crime rates in Thornton trend on the high side compared with national and state medians; the local rate of 35.21 is 3.73 points higher than Colorado’s and 15.21 higher than the nation’s. However, violent crimes are less prevalent locally, with a 1 in 350 chance of experiencing a violent incident compared with 1 in 203 statewide.
