    • According to the American Lung Association, short-term particle pollution levels are very high in Ravalli County. This type of pollution can worsen the symptoms of COPD and asthma, which may be a concern for some families seeking out memory care for a senior loved one with these ailments.  
    • Montana is among the few states in which seniors pay state income tax on Social Security benefits, though there is a deduction for this type of income for seniors who meet income restrictions.
