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.

My dad has been at Bishop Place since December 2017. He started in Assisted Living, but due to dementia and paranoia he was moved to Enhanced Care to be better served. I cannot say enough positive things about the care he is receiving and the staff's communication with me. While he is wanting to come live in our home each time I come, he is pleasant with staff and other residents when I am not visiting. Please understand that it can be hard to find a CNA that isn't in a room assisting others, but I could not do better for him myself. God bless these sweet caregivers!Read more

My father really loves it here and he is doing very well. He is very happy here and I am pleased. The community is nice, they keep the facility very clean. The care givers are amazing and they do a very good job of caring for my father.The administrator is new, so there was a few problems. He has become very active and participates in many of the activities. He never misses a meal, so I'm pretty sure the food is good. I would say to anyone thinking about moving here, just stay on top of things and the administration. Overall I would recommend it.Read more
