What to Consider About Assisted Living in Post Falls

Assisted living facilities in Post Falls follow rules and guidelines set by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. This department licenses assisted living facilities in the state and enforces a high standard of care through routine inspections and complaint investigations. It also publishes an up-to-date list of licensed assisted living facilities throughout the state.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Post Falls

  • Post Falls seniors don’t pay state income taxes on Social Security benefits, but other types of retirement income are taxed up to 6% according to the state’s normal income tax levels. To help seniors apply for deductions, there are organizations, such as the Area Agency on Aging, that provide free tax filing assistance.
  • The cost of living in Post Falls is 9% over the national average and slightly over the state median, mainly because of high housing costs. Seniors may be able to have greater control over living expenses by transitioning to assisted living.
  • Citylink provides paratransit and fixed-route services in Post Falls, Monday through Saturday. The county also has a Ring-a-Ride program for those aged 65 and over who can’t access the public bus service due to their location, age or disability. This can complement the transportation services seniors obtain through assisted living.
  • Northwest Specialty Hospital is located in Post Falls proper, providing residents with high access to a wide range of medical services. It rates among the top in the nation for patient satisfaction, and it’s the only five-star hospital in the region. There are about 231 local doctors per capita, and costs for health services, such as inpatient and outpatient care, come in about 4% below national norms, making the city a favorable option for assisted living residents.
  • Post Falls is cooler than most cities in Idaho, with temperatures ranging from lows of 23 in the winter to highs of 83 in the summer, and days with noticeable humidity are uncommon. While the city gets about 40 inches of annual snowfall, which may be a concern for those who use mobility aids, assisted living facilities provide mobility assistance and transportation services to help seniors remain active year-round.
  • Post Falls’ property and violent crime rates are considerably lower than national norms, making the city an attractive option for retirees. Recent data from the FBI shows that violent crime occurs at a rate of 191 versus the national average of 379. Although property crime is more prevalent with 1,641 incidents per 100,000 residents, this is well below 2,101 nationally.
