What to Consider About Memory Care in Ada County

Ada County is home to the Idaho state capital of Boise, and it has a senior community that makes up almost 14 percent of the nearly 460,000 population. A little less than 10 percent of seniors receiving Medicare benefits there have Alzheimer's disease or dementia, which is less than the national average of 11.3 percent. 

Ada County has a dozen memory care facilities located in Boise, Meridian, Kuna, and Garden City. While some Ada County memory care facilities occupy their own building, most memory care services are provided in specialized assisted living facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • Ada County seniors pay state income tax on withdrawals from retirement savings accounts and disbursements from private pensions. There is a large deduction for public pensions for taxpayers aged 65 and over, and Social Security income is not subject to state income tax at all. This may affect how much money is available for memory care expenses.  
  • In Ada County, ozone pollution levels are high, with the American Lung Association assigning the county a D for this type of pollution. Because ozone pollution can worsen certain medical conditions, the county's air quality may be a consideration for some families researching local memory care options. 
  • On Sperling's Comfort Index, where a higher score indicates a more comfortable year-round climate, Ada County rated 72 out of 100, compared to the national average of 54. The region's July highs are near 90 degrees with January lows around 20, and it gets an average of 31 inches of snow annually. To keep residents comfortable, many local memory care facilities equip their bedrooms with individual climate control.
  • Ada County's overall cost of living is about 10 percent higher than the national average, which may result in slightly higher memory care expenses. Healthcare expenses here are relatively low, however, which may offset other expenses.
