What to Consider About Memory Care in Boise
Boise is named for the woods that surround this quaint capital city in the heart of Treasure Valley. Seniors of all levels of health, including those living with Alzheimer's disease and dementia, may enjoy a daily stroll through Boise's parks and trails, provided they have an attendant to accompany them. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the city of Boise itself is home to 226,000 people, 12.7 percent of whom are seniors over the age of 65. The Boise-Nampa greater metro area has three times as many people and at least 11 licensed memory care facilities for seniors and their loved ones to choose from.
In Idaho, memory care standards are regulated by the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare, which not only inspects facilities for health and safety but also takes comments and concerns from the public as part of its efforts to ensure high-quality care at all of the state's facilities.
- Boise is just deep enough into the Great Basin region in the north that odd weather patterns sometimes blow through the area. Summer highs in the Boise region rise to a potentially uncomfortable high of 91 degrees Fahrenheit in July and August, while overnight winter lows often plunge to a frigid 25 degrees. Hot summers and cold winters can be problematic for seniors with a low tolerance for extremes, though Boise gets just 12 inches of rain and 19 inches of snow in a year.
- Boise is relatively affordable by national standards. Cost of living in Idaho's capital is roughly 8 percent lower than the average cost of living nationwide. Though prices overall are low, health care and transportation are 3 and 7 percent over the national rates, respectively.
- As you would expect for the largest city in a law-abiding state, Boise's crime rates are somewhat higher than is the norm for Idaho at large. Violent and property crimes are not excessive by national standards, with murder rates here 40 percent lower than the American average and both theft and vandalism similarly unremarkable.
- Boise is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as St. Luke's Boise Medical Center and Saint Alphonsus Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
