What to Consider About Memory Care in Pocatello

The Idaho Department of Health & Welfare supervises memory care providers in Pocatello and elsewhere across the state. It licenses facilities and monitors regulatory compliance through periodic scheduled and unannounced surveys.  

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Pocatello

  • As part of Bannock County, Pocatello has a physician-to-patient ratio of 1 to 1,416. In comparison, the statewide ratio is 1 to 1,517, meaning that Pocatello’s doctors see around 100 fewer patients annually. Portneuf Medical Center provides a wide range of medical services within city limits, including primary and emergency care, diagnostic imaging, therapy and surgery. It also operates an online booking system and on-demand video consultations.
  • Monthly living costs for Pocatello’s seniors vary widely based on their housing situations, medical needs and lifestyle preferences. On average, mortgage-free homeowners pay $418 for housing each month, renters pay $666 and those with a mortgage pay $1,245. Individuals with health care needs spend around $722 monthly on medical services, while those in good health spend about $528. Transportation and groceries average $317 and $320, respectively. To assist seniors with lower incomes, Idaho Medicaid manages several programs that may reduce living costs.
  • When it comes to taxes, Idaho doesn’t tax Social Security benefits. However, the state taxes pensions, savings and other income sources at a flat rate of 5.8%, with limited deductions.
  • According to crime data, Pocatello’s property crime rate of 13.53 lies 4.26 points above the state median but 6.47 points below the country’s average. The violent crime rate is higher than national and state figures by 0.12 and 1.71 points, respectively. Fortunately, most memory care communities feature enhanced safety and security measures, such as alarms, gated grounds, around-the-clock staffing and CCTV cameras.
  • Per County Health Rankings & Roadmaps, Bannock County scores in the bottom quarter of neighborhoods in Idaho for health outcomes. However, it scores in the higher middle range of counties statewide for the food environment index, cigarette use, alcohol consumption and obesity. Moreover, memory care communities schedule wellness and engagement activities for residents, and most facilities have on-staff or on-call nurses.
