What to Consider About Memory Care in Kalispell

The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services licenses and oversees all memory care communities in Kalispell and the rest of the state. This department promotes a consistent standard of care by enforcing rules for the scope of services facilities provide, as well as minimum requirements for staffing, security and care planning.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Kalispell

 

  • Montana doesn’t have a sales tax, reducing the overall cost of living, and low property taxes promote affordable memory care expenses. While the state taxes all forms of income, including Social Security benefits, retirees below certain income thresholds can claim deductions to reduce what they owe to the state.

 

 

  • Flathead County, where Kalispell is located, ranks 7th out of 47 surveyed counties in Montana for general health and falls in the 75-100th percentile for health outcomes. The average life expectancy in this region is 79.1 years, which is a little higher than Montana’s average of 78.4 and the national norm of 78.5, and there is one primary care physician per 1,100 residents compared to a national ratio of 1:1,310, reducing seniors’ wait times to obtain basic health screenings and services.

 

 

  • Kalispell has an overall livability score of 55 on the AARP Livability Index, indicating an above-average range of amenities and benefits for seniors. Some factors that positively impact this score include the region’s numerous parks and low rate of preventable hospitalizations. Additionally, it has a walkability score of 9.66 compared to 6.17 nationally, letting many family members visit loved ones in memory care without relying on vehicle transportation.

 

  • Kalispell ranks as safer than just 10% of U.S. communities and 7% of Montana cities, and its property and violent crime rates exceed what’s typical in similarly sized communities. Fortunately, memory care communities support residents’ safety through measures such as monitored surveillance systems and escorted transportation.
