What to Consider About Assisted Living in Spirit Lake

Spirit Lake is known as one of the best places to retire in Kootenai County in 2019. Located to the north of Spirit Lake, the city offers a new trail system, including the West and East Lake Trails and plenty of outdoor options for seniors who like to stay active. 

For seniors who want to retire in the area that need assistance with daily living tasks, there are two assisted living facilities in the area. Also called Residential Care Facilities (RCFs), these facilities are regulated by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Spirit Lake

  • Spirit Lake has an array of community resources for seniors, including the North Idaho Senior Services, an organization that helps match seniors with available services in the area, including one senior center.
  • Spirit Lake is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Avera Spirit Lake Medical Center and Lakes Regional Healthcare, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Seniors in Spirit Lake may find the cost of living index of 114.2 makes it harder to manage their budget in comparison to the national average of 100 and the state average of 100.2.
  • An abundance of snow in Spirit Lake may pose an issue for seniors who are sensitive to the cold. The city gets around 52 inches of snow per year, which is higher than the national average of 28. Summers are mild with July average highs around 82.
  • Crime in Spirit Lake is below the national average for both violent and property crime, which makes the city a safe option for seniors and other residents. On a scale from one to 100 with 100 being the highest, property crime is ranked 20.5, in comparison to the national average of 35.4. Violent crime is ranked 11.6, compared to the national average of 22.7.
  • White Tail Transportation provides rides for seniors in Spirit Lake for medical appointments and general transportation at a flat rate. For scheduled rides, reservations must be made at least 48 hours in advance.
