When choosing assisted living care, consumers are reliant on their state’s regulatory agencies to provide information about communities and their backgrounds. Public access to assisted living records varies greatly state by state. Here is a snapshot of the level of transparency in the state of Idaho:
- Idaho is very transparent and risen high in our rankings due to the state website recently including enforcement information in the same place as licensed communities.
