What to Consider About Memory Care in Weiser
The small town of Weiser, Idaho, has just over 5,000 residents, but it has a large senior community that makes up more than 17 percent of the population. As many as one in 10 of those seniors may have Alzheimer's disease, which is diagnosed in roughly 25,000 Idaho seniors.
To meet the needs of local seniors with Alzheimer's and dementia, Weiser has one memory care facility. As is the case with many memory care facilities in the state, Weiser's is situated within an assisted living facility that specializes in dementia care.
- Idaho seniors do not pay state income tax on their Social Security benefits, and those aged 65 and over can claim a tax deduction on income from public pensions. Income from private pensions and retirement savings accounts are fully taxable, however, which may reduce how much money can be put into the memory care budget in Weiser.
Summers in Idaho are hot and dry with highs in the low 90s, and winters are very cold with lows in the low 20s. Families who are touring local memory care facilities may want to ask what precautions are taken with residents when temperatures are extreme.
- Crime is more prevalent in Weiser than in the average U.S. community. The town has more crime than 73 percent of U.S. communities of all sizes, and its crime rate is notably higher than similarly sized cities across the country. This may be a consideration for families researching local memory care options.
- Weiser is an affordable place to live with an overall cost of living that is about 10 percent below the U.S. average, which may result in relatively low memory care expenses. Healthcare is slightly below the national average as well, which may benefit those managing chronic conditions like dementia.
