What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lewiston

The Idaho Department of Health & Welfare is the licensing and regulatory agency responsible for assisted living facilities in Lewiston and throughout the state of Idaho. Its representatives conduct routine and unannounced site visits to monitor facilities and ensure they remain in compliance with state mandates.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lewiston

  • Although Lewiston is an isolated community, it provides a strong network of medical providers and facilities. Seniors may receive care at one of the city’s three hospitals, including the Jonathan M. Wainwright Memorial VA Medical Center and several outpatient clinics and surgery centers. Lewiston also has 225 physicians per 100,000 residents, a rate higher than the nation’s average of 210. Another benefit for seniors is the city’s low health cost index of 95 compared to the national average of 100.
  • Lewiston’s property crime index of 49.6 is nearly double Idaho’s 26; however, the city’s 12.8 violent crime index is markedly lower than the state’s 15.2. The 24/7 security and around-the-clock staff that most assisted living facilities provide are a couple of their many benefits. 
  • The overall cost of living in Lewiston is more affordable than both the state and nation as a whole. Seniors living in the area realize the most significant savings on transportation and utilities. While more expensive than Idaho’s average, Lewiston’s grocery and health costs are lower than the U.S. average.
  • Even though Lewiston is located in a mountainous region of the northwestern United States, its residents enjoy a moderate climate. Situated in a valley, the city averages 169 days of sunshine with 15.8 inches of rainfall and 12.5 inches of snow annually. Summer highs average 88 degrees in July. 
  • Seniors with respiratory issues may be able to breathe easier in Lewiston, where the air quality is 66 out of 100, eight points higher than the national average.
