The Retreat at Sunny Vista is awarded Best Memory Care Community in Colorado Springs.

 The Retreat at Sunny Vista in Colorado Springs is both honored and excited to be recognized by MemoryCare.com as one of The Best Memory Care Communities in Colorado Springs.
MemoryCare.com is a research organization that is focused on Supporting Caregivers and their loved ones and helping them find healthcare that best fits their needs.  One of the biggest issues that families face is deciding on which of the many memory care communities in the Colorado Springs area best fits their loved one’s needs.

MemoryCare.com describes their process

We spent the past 12 months analyzing key care quality metrics, such as resident satisfaction ratings, facility features, affordability, and most importantly, first-hand reviews from families. This is typical of what we found about your facility:

  • Reviewers appreciate the beautiful, well-kept facility and the all-inclusive pricing. One husband of a resident wrote, “Other facilities have a tiered care system that costs more as a resident requires more care. Sunny Vista has one single Room and Board charge that includes whatever level of care is needed.”

“Our data has highlighted that you are not only one of the best, but also have provided your residents with a level of care that far exceeds generally accepted care standards.” – Joyce C. Community Manager at MemoryCare.com

​We are honored to have so many supporters of The Retreat at Sunny Vista. And are proud to be recognized as one of the Best Memory Care Communities in Colorado Springs.

About Dementia and Alzheimer’s in Colorado Springs

Dementia, and Alzheimer’s, are serious, growing problems. One out of every 10 adults over the age of 65 has Alzheimer’s or dementia. As the Colorado Springs’s population of seniors continues to grow (20.7% growth between 2013 and 2017), so does the concern about aging and the risk of cognitive impairment.
 
The number of deaths for those 65 and older, caused or partly caused by Alzheimer’s disease rose 65.6% between 2013 and 2017 in Colorado Springs. The number of deaths from all causes for that same age group only increased by 15%, showing that Alzheimer’s is a growing concern in the region.
 
Overall, the percentage of seniors’ deaths related to Alzheimer’s is higher than the rest of the nation (6.92% in Colorado Springs vs. 6.46% in the U.S.).
