    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Emmett

    Emmett is the county seat and only city in Gem County. Seniors interested in finding more out about Emmett, can visit the local Historical Society and Village Museum. Of the 6,557 people living here, 17.2% are seniors aged 65 or over, and there are two assisted living facilities for those who need help with the activities of daily living. 

    In Emmett and the rest of state, the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare licenses and regulates assisted living facilities, which are also called residential care facilities (RCFs).

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Emmett

    • On par with the national average of 100, the cost of living in Emmett is 101.8. Seniors may pay more for housing and transportation but can save on utilities, healthcare and groceries.
    • On average, Emmett receives 210 sunny days a year compared to the U.S. average of 205. However, temperatures range widely, with July highs of 92 and January lows of 23, which may be difficult for seniors who are sensitive to extreme weather.
    • Emmett's violent crime rate is 14.0, much lower than the U.S. average of 22.7, and its property crime rate is 22.8, also lower than the national average of 35.4. The city has lower violent and property crime than the state averages of 26 and 15,2, respectively. This may make assisted living residents more confident about their safety while on outings in town.
    • According to the EPA, Emmett's air quality of 77 is 29 points higher than the U.S. average. This is based on measures that analyze the risk of respiratory illness and cancer due to air pollution. Consequently, Emmett's seniors may breathe easier than those in comparable cities across the country.
    • Emmett seniors benefit from the state's tax-friendly stance. Social Security retirement benefits are not taxed, and the state’s property and sales taxes are low.
    • The Emmett area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Valor Health Medical Clinic, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
