This group is at a higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, but the city is home to a higher-than-average number of physicians per capita and is near some of the best health care in the state. Aurora hosts UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital and nearby Denver has SCL Health St. Joseph Hospital, both of which are recognized for their high-quality geriatric care.
