What to Consider About Assisted Living in Meridian

Meridian is one of the fastest growing cities in Idaho, and demonstrates its commitment to seniors with The Mayor's Senior Advisory Board, established in 2015 to ensure seniors — almost 14 percent of the population — have a good quality of life. Meridian is home to nine assisted living facilities, where aging seniors can receive personal care services that include medication management and assistance with activities of daily living, including dressing, bathing and grooming, all within a safe and comfortable residential community. An additional 35 assisted living communities are located in nearby towns, such as Boise, Kuna and Nampa.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Meridian

• Meridian enjoys all four seasons, with its semi-arid climate making itself known during the dry summers, which are typically pleasant with some 100-degree days and occasional thunderstorms. Winters are cold, with average low temperatures in the 20s. However, snowfall is typically light, and spring and fall tend to be temperate and comfortable.

• Even though it's right outside Boise, Meridian hosts its own symphony orchestra, as well as public art displays at City Hall. Meridian locals can also participate in all the artistic offerings and outdoor recreation that's popular in Boise. Boise is home to the Idaho Shakespeare Festival, Idaho Dance Theatre, the Boise Contemporary Theater and Ballet Idaho, among other performing arts experiences at the Velma V. Morrison Center.

Valley Regional Transit coordinates bus service for all of Ada County and Canyon County, including Meridian. Well-laid out highways connect Meridian to Boise and the rest of the state. Seniors pay half price for bus fare.

• Meridian has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Meridian Senior Center at the Park, an organization that hosts games, art classes and podiatry clinics.

• The cost of living in Meridian is only 3.8 percent higher than the national average cost of living.

• The Meridian area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center and St. Luke's Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
