What to Consider About Assisted Living in Nampa

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare has overall responsibility for ensuring assisted living facilities in the state operate to expected standards. Day-to-day work is conducted by a team known as RALF (Residential Assisted Living Facilities). The team has the authority to inspect facilities without notice and to organize surveys, in addition to issuing and revoking licenses.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Nampa

  • Sperling’s Best Places records the average cost of living index in the U.S. as 100, the state of Idaho at 97.7 and Nampa at 94.6. The figures indicate that for the average citizen, Nampa is a more affordable city than most in the state and the country. This is particularly true when looking at the average costs for health care. 
  • Although Nampa’s statistics for violent and property crime are above the state averages, they are also below stats for the country as a whole. The data collated by Neighborhood Scout also shows the downtown area to be the hotspot, with many safer neighborhoods in every other direction. Additionally, many assisted living facilities have 24/7 security to ensure the seniors under their roofs are safe.
  • Seniors in Nampa have easy access to a range of excellent medical services. The biggest hospitals in the city are St. Luke’s Nampa Medical Center and St. Alphonsus Medical Center Nampa. There are also many Medicare-registered physicians, including 84 family doctors. Additionally, Boise is only 25 minutes away and is home to several high-performing hospitals.
  • Nampa’s seniors can enjoy two additional days of sunshine compared to the average American, in addition to having one of the most comfortable climates in the state. The city gets approximately 11 inches of rain per year, which is much less than the national average of 38 inches, and sees just nine inches of snow, which is less than the national average of 28 inches, making it more possible to enjoy the outdoors than in many other parts of the country.
  • Valley Regional Transit operates a number of services that provide free and subsidized transport for seniors throughout the Treasure Valley area. It also works with private carriers, such as Lyft, to provide door-to-door services for seniors who are unable to use fixed-route bus services. Additionally, it partners with a number of senior centers in Nampa, Boise and other cities to ensure seniors have inexpensive and reliable ride services.
