What to Consider About Assisted Living in Twin Falls

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare (DHW) is responsible for inspecting and licensing assisted living communities in the state. Their Residential Assisted Living Facilities (RALF) team conducts routine surveys to ensure compliance with state rules. You can review survey results on the DHW website and find assisted living options or contact the team directly at their Boise office.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Twin Falls

  • While there are no hospitals in Twin Falls, there is one pharmacy and a high number of registered Medicare and Medicaid physicians within the city. Seniors here also enjoy above-average life expectancy, which might be due in part to the peaceful setting and low population density. Residents rarely battle traffic or feel claustrophobic in this city.
  • On a 100-point cost-of-living index, Twin Falls comes in lower than the national average at 91.1 and is considered to be quite affordable for those on a tighter budget. Seniors can still enjoy a nice quality of life without feeling the pinch of high taxes or overpriced amenities.
  • As Twin Falls is a popular tourist destination, local amenities are in abundance. There are seven golf courses, 12 parks, nine shopping centers and three movie theaters in or near town. Three fitness centers are also available for seniors who want to maintain physical vitality and overall strength.
  • Although sales and income tax rates are higher here than the national averages, the state reduces the tax burden on seniors by exempting Railroad Retirement and Social Security benefits.
  • Because it’s nestled along a range of the Rocky Mountains, the climate in Twin Falls is semi-arid. This typically means low humidity and large temperature swings between day and night. Rainfall and snowfall are below the national average, and the city gets around 210 days of sunshine every year.
  • On a 100-point crime index, Twin Falls scores only 17.4 for violent crime compared to the national average of 22.7. This city is considered to be relatively safe with only occasional reports of property damage or theft taking place. Drug trafficking has grown a little, but local law enforcement has increased its dedication to minimizing any threats.
  • Twin Falls has excellent air quality due to the crisp mountain air and higher elevation. This might be a challenge for some seniors with breathing issues or heart weakness, but many seniors also find the location invigorating and serene, which helps their overall quality of life.
