What to Consider About Memory Care in Twin Falls

Around 25,000 people in Idaho are living with Alzheimer's disease, and that figure is expected to rise 32 percent by 2025. In Twin Falls, where over 13 percent of the city's 49,000 people are aged 65 and over, there are two memory care facilities catering to seniors with Alzheimer's, dementia, and other memory impairments. 

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare licenses and monitors memory care facilities in Twin Falls and in the rest of the state. Facilities that admit people with dementia must provide safe and secure interior and exterior environments for residents as well as specialized training for staff.

  • The Twin Falls area is home to world-class medical facilities, such as St. Luke's Magic Valley Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. Specialized brain health and dementia care is also available at clinics such as Sawtooth Behavioral Health.
  • Social Security Income is not subject to state income tax in Idaho and sales tax in the state is relatively low. However, other forms of retirement income, including pensions and retirement funds, are fully taxed. Families may need to investigate their loved one's individual circumstances to see how this will affect their memory care budget in Twin Falls.
  • Twin Falls has a high crime rate of 30 crimes per 1,000 residents, higher than 97 percent of the state's other towns and cities. The violent crime rate is 4.27, two points higher than the state average. Property crime is also higher than the Idaho average of 16.35, occurring at a rate of 26.16. When touring facilities, families may wish to ask staff about the security measures taken to keep residents safe.
  • The Sperling index rates Twin Falls' cost of living at 90.6, more than nine points lower than the national average of 100. Health care costs in the city are rated at 95, five points lower than the U.S. average, which can equal savings for seniors with health conditions.
