    What to Consider About Memory Care in Thornton

    Thornton is a suburb of Denver, Colorado, and is home to more than 118,000 residents. Nearly 10 percent of Thornton's population is aged 65 years or older, many of whom have been diagnosed with dementia, which affects an estimated 71,000 seniors in Colorado

    Those who require residential care for Alzheimer's disease or other dementia disorders can receive such care in the city's single memory care facility, which is regulated by the Minnesota Department of Public Health and Environment. Officially, facilities that provide memory care in Colorado are known as assisted living residences and are subject to the same regulations as those that provide basic assisted living services to seniors.

    • The air quality in Thornton and throughout Adams County is fairly good, according to the American Lung Association. That means that the air poses little threat to seniors and those with respiratory illnesses. 
    • Thornton's winters are cold and snowy. The city gets 45 inches of snow each year, nearly 20 inches more than the national average, and experiences average temperatures in January as low as 18 degrees. When touring memory care facilities, it's a good idea to discuss how the facility prevents seniors with dementia from wandering outdoors, particularly in frigid temperatures. 
    • While the cost of living in Thornton is 35 percent higher than the average U.S. city, the cost of healthcare is slightly lower than the national average. This may be a consideration for families who have a strict memory care budget. 
    • The Thornton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as North Suburban Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
