As families consider senior living options, 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, the aptly nicknamed “Gem State” is truly a hidden gem of the United States. Idaho’s landscape consists of scenic wonders and untamed natural features such as 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.

The median monthly cost of home care in Idaho is about $4,300, according to Genworth.
