    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Burley

    Tucked in southern Idaho along 20 miles of the Snake River’s edge, Burley is a mecca for seniors looking for a small-town environment with plentiful natural resources. Summer brings the Idaho Regatta boat races to Burley, and Riverfront Park and North Freedom Park provide easy access to the river. Seniors may also enjoy birdwatching at the City of Rocks National Reserve and Castle Rocks State Park.

    Adults aged 65 and over make up nearly 13% of Burley’s population of 10,345. When these seniors need a secure retirement community that provides help with the activities of daily living, they can choose from four residential care facilities (RCFs) in Burley.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Burley

    • Burley may be a small town, but it offers seniors big choices in outdoor recreation and cultural amenities. In addition to the boating, fishing and water sports opportunities the Snake River provides, the King Fine Arts Center hosts productions year-round, and a six-day Magic Valley Folk Festival each July brings international entertainment to town.
    • Thanks to its location in the southern portion of the state, Burley receives less snowfall in the winter and is hotter in the summer than most places in Idaho. Seniors can expect approximately 20 inches of snow, 10 inches of rain and about 24 days annually when the temperature tops 90 degrees.
    • The Burley area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Cassia Regional Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Although seniors living in Burley don’t pay state taxes on their Social Security benefits, Idaho does tax income from other retirement plans such as private pensions, IRAs and 401(k) plans. The state does not levy an inheritance or estate tax.
    • Burley’s overall cost of living is about 13% lower than the national average, which can be helpful for seniors on tight budgets. Most of the savings come in the areas of transportation, healthcare, utilities and housing.
    • The violent crime rate in Burley of 19.6 on a 100-point scale is a bit lower than the national average of 22.7. The property crime rate is higher, however, with Burley’s score of 45.5 surpassing the U.S. average of 35.4 by 10%.
