What to Consider About Assisted Living in Eagle

 

The licensing of all residential assisted living communities in Idaho, including those in Eagle, is conducted by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. This department also acts as a regulatory body to ensure communities are operating in accordance with the established standards and statewide regulations, so residents can access the care they need in a safe and healthy environment.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Eagle

  • Eagle is a very safe community for seniors to enjoy their retirement years. The city receives an index rating of 13.2 out of 100 in terms of violent crime rates, which is much lower than the national average of 22.7. Property crime rates also fall below the U.S. average, with a rating of 30.5 compared to the 35.4 score seen on a national scale.
  • The city’s cost of living is 50% higher than the U.S. national average, largely based on the area’s expensive housing and high health care costs. However, grocery and transportation costs are more moderate. Seniors may also be able to access financial aid for necessities such as medical care, assisted living and prescriptions.
  • While winters in Eagle can get cold, they’re relatively mild compared to other cities in Idaho. Winter temperatures tend to settle above 24 degrees, which is several degrees warmer than the average low in the state (21 degrees). Come summertime, seniors can look forward to temperatures in the high 80s to low 90s and plenty of sunshine.
  • The state of Idaho is considered to be tax-friendly toward retirees. Social Security retirement benefits are not taxed, and pension income is taxed at a partial rate. Property and sales taxes here are also moderate compared to nearby states.
  • The American Lung Association only awards the region’s air quality a B-rating in terms of high zone days, though it receives a passing grade for its annual particle pollution levels.
  • Ada County’s Valley Regional Transit transportation network offers a variety of services to help seniors get around the city. In addition to regular fixed-route service, Eagle offers a Senior Transportation Service which provides weekday rides for seniors at no cost. VRT also offers a service to take elderly residents to and from senior center locations.
  • The city of Eagle has a strong health care sector led by two renowned health care systems. St. Luke’s Eagle Medical Plaza offers a variety of health services in one convenient location. More extensive medical services and 24-hour emergency care are available at Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in nearby Boise.
