As families consider options for assisted living, Idaho should be at the top of the list for those looking for a unique geographic blend of dry, desert-like conditions and rugged, snowy wilderness — along with a relatively low cost of living.
Sandwiched between the lush, temperate Pacific Northwest and the snowy peaks of the Rocky Mountains, Idaho truly is truly a hidden gem of the United States. The aptly nicknamed “Gem State” features scenic wonders and untamed natural lands including Craters of the Moon National Monument, City of Rocks National Reserve, and the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness Area. Even part of Yellowstone — the country’s first and most well-known national park — spills over from neighboring Wyoming into Idaho’s northeast corner, just below the state’s jagged, mountainous border with Montana. Rivers and waterfalls are also distinguishing features of Idaho, and the Snake River Plain through the state’s central region is home to its most populous cities, like Boise.
Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 80 senior living communities in Idaho that provide assisted living.
The median monthly cost of assisted living in Idaho is about $3,500.
