What to Consider About Memory Care in Bannock County

Bannock County, which is situated in the southeastern region of Idaho near the upper end of the Snake River Valley, has about 85,000 residents and a senior community that makes up 14 percent of the population. According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, a little less than 10 percent of Medicare beneficiaries aged 65 and over are living with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. 

In Idaho, including in Bannock County, memory care services are generally offered in assisted living facilities that specialize in providing dementia care. Bannock County has four memory care facilities, including three in Pocatello and one in Chubbuck. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • In Bannock County, seniors do not pay state income tax on their Social Security benefits. While other sources of retirement income are taxable, seniors receiving income from public pensions are eligible for a large deduction on this type of income. This may affect how much money can be put toward local memory care services. 
  • Bannock County received a C for short-term particle pollution and a passing score for annual particle pollution from the American Lung Association. This type of pollution, which includes pollen and bacteria as well as emissions from trucks and coal-fired power plants, can exacerbate respiratory conditions, making the region's air quality a consideration for some families researching memory care here.
  • Bannock County sees an average of 204 sunny days annually and receives some type of precipitation just 42 days per year. July highs are near 90 degrees and January lows are in the mid-teens. The county gets about 58 inches of annual snowfall, which is more than double the national average and may be a concern for families whose senior loved one has mobility difficulties.
  • Overall living expenses in Bannock County are about 10 percent below the national average. The region's low utilities and housing costs may result in slightly lower memory care expenses, which may appeal to families with restrictive budgets. Healthcare expenses are slightly above the statewide average but are about 5 percent below the national average.

Paying for Memory Care in Bannock County

Memory Care costs in Bannock County start around $3,453 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of memory care is $5,694 per month.
