    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kalispell

    Kalispell, Mont., is home to Glacier National Park, which boasts more than 730 miles of hiking and walking trails, many with wheelchair accessibility, for seniors and their loved ones to explore. Seniors living in Kalispell have three assisted living facilities (ALFs) from which to choose. In Montana, these facilities are defined as residences that offer 24-hour supervision and assistance with activities of daily living and basic healthcare such as medication management and/or storage. The licensing and regulation of ALFs are under the jurisdiction of the Montana Department of Health & Human Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Kalispell

    • The cost of living in Kalispell is equal to the national average. Seniors on a budget may find they are able to save money here compared to more expensive areas in the state.

    • Kalispell enjoys a low rate of violent crime. With a score of 21.1 out of 100 (1 being the safest), violent crime is 10 points lower than the U. S. average. Some seniors may feel insecure due to the high rate of property crime which is 56.5, quite high compared to the nation's 38.1.

    • With a high of 81 degrees in July, seniors can make the most of summer and get out and explore. The bitter cold winters bring a low of 18 degrees in January, and up to 26 inches of snow, which may impact seniors' mobility.
    • Flathead County received a passing Ozone grade from the American Lung Association. Unfortunately, the Particle Pollution 24-hour score failed with a F ranking. Asthmatic seniors and those with a respiratory condition could experience difficulty breathing in this area.

    • Kalispell offers many interesting sites for seniors to enjoy. The Conrad Mansion is the 13,000 square foot home of Kalispell’s founder, Charles Conrad. Seniors can explore the mansion and get a peek into this city’s opulent 19th-century life. Seniors can also experience fine music at the Glacier Symphony and Chorale, which hosts year-round performances such as the Festival Amadeus and Masterworks Season.

    • The Kalispell area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Kalispell Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
