What to Consider About Memory Care in Twin Falls

The Idaho Department of Health and Welfare regulates memory care communities in Twin Falls and the rest of the state. It officially licenses these facilities as residential assisted living facilities, although it requires memory care communities to follow additional rules for indoor and outdoor security, as well as caregiver training. It ensures compliance with these rules through regular site inspections.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Twin Falls

 

  • St. Luke's Magic Valley Medical Center serves Twin Falls area seniors through a full range of primary, specialty and emergency services. This hospital houses an advanced cancer center and a lab, and it provides in-person and virtual urgent care services for injuries and illnesses. It also offers access to clinical trials through its network of physician researchers, and it has advisors who provide referrals for community-based dementia services and resources.

 

  • In The Twin Falls region, about 14% of adults report being in fair to poor health, compared to 12% in the state and nation. The average life expectancy trends about a year lower than the national norm and 2 years below Idaho’s average at 77.2 years. Even so, about 51% of Medicare enrollees get the flu shot annually, and the rate of preventable hospital stays is lower than the national average at a rate of 2,272 stays per 100,000 residents. Based on this, Twin Falls County ranks 24th out of the state's 43 ranked counties for general health.

 

  • Living costs in Twin Falls run 7.6% lower than the national norm, promoting affordable memory care services and making the city a viable option for retirees with limited access to financial resources. While health care costs trend about 2% higher than the national average, many health care providers in the region accept Medicare and Medicaid.

 

  • Idaho’s income tax rate tops out at 5.8% for single filers earning $4,489 or more annually, which is moderate compared to the rest of the nation. The state doesn’t tax Social Security benefits regardless of an individual’s income level. Those aged 65 and over may be able to claim a deduction to reduce what they owe on their pension income, depending on the amount of their Social Security income.

 

  • On a total crime index, Twin Falls rates as safer than just 24% of U.S. cities. However, the city’s level of crime is low when compared only to cities comparable in population size, making it an attractive option for seniors and families seeking memory care in Idaho.
