Recent reviews of Memory Care in Denver, CO
The Courtyards at Mountain View in Denver, CO

I like the size of community and the attention to all the residents and how quickly they came to recognize our loved one, to welcome her, and encourage her to get involved. They were very thoughtful during the height of the pandemic and even when they had to deliver meals they did a phenomenal job. They were so eager to get the dinning room set up correctly so the residents could come back and eat their meals comfortably. The executive director is so thoughtful an caring, and the entire staff team is amazing.

MorningStar Assisted Living & Memory Care of Wheat Ridge

We chose MorningStar primarily for the location and I was very impressed with the facility, it is newer and has a lot of fine things. Even though it was covid, the directors met with me in person and listened to my questions and concerns and addressed my issues. Overall, it has been a great experience and I would highly recommend them.

How people pay for memory care in Denver

Most Denver families use both public and private funding sources to cover the cost of memory care. We cover some of the most commonly used payment methods for memory care below.

Depending on your family’s resources, your private pay options may include any combination of the following:

  • Reverse mortgage. Selling a house can be a great way to pay for memory care. However, if you’d rather not sell a home, a reverse mortgage payment option allows you to borrow from your home equity to pay for memory care without selling.
  • Health savings accounts. Also known as HSAs, these accounts commonly help families pay for costs associated with their loved one’s stay in memory care.
  • Life insurance. Some policies may include cash benefits to be used toward long-term care costs. Double-check your loved one’s specific life insurance policy to see what it will cover.
  • Long-term care insurance. These policies are specifically designed to pay for long-term senior living. Again, you’ll want to check your loved one’s specific policies to find out what they will cover.

Understand Denver laws and regulations for memory care facilities

Locally, long-term care facilities in Colorado are required to be licensed and regulated by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (or CDPHE). If a memory care facility receives payments from Medicaid and Medicare, those facilities are more regulated. These facilities would be required to follow both state and federal regulations for nursing homes. Alternately, a private assisted living or memory care facility that does not accept Medicare or Medicaid is required to follow state standards only.

For more information about who designs and enforces licenses, you’ll want to explore resources from the Health Facilities and Emergency Medical Services Division of the CDPHE. This division also holds yearly inspections to check whether memory care homes in Colorado meet state and federal standards. Unannounced visits occur at these facilities every nine to 15 months. If there are reports or complaints of noncompliance, those concerns get investigated immediately by the CDPHE. Colorado assisted living and memory care requirements are thorough and include provisions for the following:

  • Staff required to complete regular memory care training
  • Resident care and quality of life
  • Accident prevention
  • Care planning
  • Medical and nursing care

If you’re curious about a particular facility, the Colorado Department of Health allows you to double-check licensure, certification requirements, and how specific memory care facilities performed on their assisted living residences page. You can explore consumer resources on specific assisted living or memory care facilities, or you can contact the Health Facilities and Emergency Medical Services Division for more information.

COVID-19 regulations for Denver memory care facilities

Denver memory care facilities must remain compliant with the following:

  • The Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) recommendations for COVID-19 prevention
  • The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services guidelines

In keeping up with updated federal guidelines, visitors are allowed in assisted living and memory care facilities. That said, precautions should always be taken to make sure residents stay safe.

Read the current COVID-19 guidance from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

Read the CDC’s current COVID-19 guidelines for nursing homes.

Read the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment’s current COVID-19 guidelines for nursing homes.

These guidelines include the following in Denver:

Vaccinations. COVID-19 vaccinations must be made available to all consenting staff and residents, and vaccination is highly encouraged.

Masking. Masks are no longer mandatory, though they are encouraged for both patients and staff if transmission rates are high or if an individual is exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19.

Staff safety. Staff must wear masks when COVID-19 transmission rates are up, and staff must use appropriate personal protective equipment when necessary.

Facility cleanliness. At least one staff member should be assigned to oversee infection prevention control and maintain a supply of hospital-grade disinfectants and alcohol-based hand sanitizers.

What memory care in Denver has to offer

Denver memory care communities are constantly evolving to fit the needs and cognitive well-being of the residents they serve. See the common threads in these facilities below.

Person-centered care

There’s an overarching theme through A Place for Mom’s partnering Denver communities of person-centered care. With dignity, positivity, and humility at the heart of the care they provide, communities extend these values through the training, services, and therapies caregivers offer to residents.

Person-centered care in the modern memory care facility includes training in the following techniques:

  • De-escalation, where caregivers school their tone of voice and body language to best serve a patient’s emotional or physical needs
  • Redirection, where caregivers work to reduce agitation by gently appealing to a patient’s personal preferences, comfort objects, or unique interests
  • Reminiscence therapy, where caregivers skillfully ground patients in bits of their long-term memories through the use of the patients’ five senses

A positive, encouraging approach with emphasis in memory validation is trained into memory care staff at the Denver memory care facilities in our partner network. In these memory care units, collaboration and clear communication with residents’ loved ones and family members is prioritized. Residents throughout these communities appreciate these efforts. Loved ones and residents alike share story after positive story of the “genuine level[s] of care” and connection they experience from staff while living in these communities.

Therapeutic design

Memory care facilities in Denver employ the most cutting-edge therapeutic training and state-of-the-art facilities. Memory care facilities need to ensure that residents who may wander and lose their way stay safe and secure. Additionally, community spaces are designed with features to encourage peace and cognitive well-being. Examples of such features may include the following amenities or practices:

  • Secure indoor and outdoor walking paths
  • Assigned dining seating to reduce confusion and agitation
  • Cheerful yet calming spaces for group activities

Where downtown facilities don’t allow for secured outdoor walking spaces on-site, several facilities have carved out beautifully curated, sun-bathed indoor walking paths to help stimulate residents’ cognition through exercise.

Some Denver facilities also offer innovative methods and technologies to foster learning and reduce cognitive decline, including:

  • light therapies
  • pet companions
  • gentle dance therapies
  • touch screen therapies
  • hands-on cooking demonstrations

Any number of routine activities can help residents remember parts of their lives that bring them joy. As such, many care facilities offer a wide breadth of activities catering to residents’ personal cognitive thriving. In the rhythm of daily life at our Denver memory care partners, you’ll find a wealth of gentle mental and physical fitness classes, reminiscence therapy spaces, community games, and more to encourage cognitive wellness.
