    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lewiston

    Lewiston is named after the famous explorer Meriwether Lewis, who camped in the area in 1805 and 1806. The city was the first capital of Idaho Territory, and while it’s no longer the state capital, it’s home to approximately 32,800 people. The city has a large senior population with nearly one-fifth of its residents being 65 or older. 

    Within city limits, there are five assisted living facilities that can serve seniors who need help with activities of daily living. Another three facilities are located nearby. Like all assisted living facilities in Idaho, facilities in Lewiston are regulated by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lewiston

    • This small city offers limited arts and culture opportunities. For hiking, camping and wildlife viewing, seniors can visit Hells Gate State Park. The Lewis-Clark State College Center for Arts & History offers art exhibits and workshops, while the Nez Perce County Historical Society and Museum showcases local history. 
    • Lewiston receives much less snow and rain than the national average. The city gets 16 inches of rain and 13 inches of snow per year, while the U.S. averages are 38 inches and 28 inches, respectively. Seniors who enjoy spending time outdoors may enjoy this climate.
    • The Lewiston area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Joseph Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Lewiston’s overall cost of living is nearly on par with both the state and national average. Healthcare costs are 5% lower than the national average, which may appeal to seniors with chronic health conditions. 
    • The Lewiston Transit System operates a city-wide, fixed-route bus service. There are several routes, and seniors are eligible for half-price fares. A free paratransit service, Dial-a-Ride, is available to seniors with disabilities that prevent them from using the fixed-route service.
    • Compared to the rest of Idaho, Lewiston has a fairly high crime rate. Lewiston’s property crime rate is 28.73 per 1,000 residents, but statewide, the rate is only 16.35 per 1,000 residents. To protect seniors, some of the city’s assisted living facilities offer keypad entry, 24-hour security systems and other safety features.
