Idaho is nicknamed “The Gem State” which is appropriate for the appeal it should generate for retirees and seniors. While the state is rarely mentioned in terms of national attention, Idaho is actually a terrific place to live in, especially for seniors.

Senior housing in Idaho is not only cheaper than the national average but average healthcare costs are also lower, so it is more bang for your buck. Additionally, Idaho features a diverse climate with the Idaho Panhandle located to the north (and closely linked to the terrain of eastern Washington) as well as the Snake River Plain (agriculturally rich) and Great Basin with the Rocky Mountains running across the state.

Idaho Senior Apartments & Condos for Outdoor Enthusiasts

While nearby Washington, Oregon, Montana and Colorado have higher costs of living, Idaho offers senior citizens similar mountainous terrain at cheaper monthly rents. Not only is Idaho close to Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, but also to Glacier National Park in Montana. And with nearly 40 percent of its land owned by the National Forest Service (more than any other state), there is ample opportunity for retirees who are hunters, fishermen, hikers and for other outdoor activities.

Senior living facilities in Idaho inhibit wonderful greenery and dry, sunny weather. The state also has one of the lowest crime rates in the nation. Lastly, with an expansive and affordable medical care network, you will save money in more ways than one if you pick Idaho as your retirement destination!

Best Idaho Affordable Senior Housing

It is very possible to find affordable senior housing in Idaho for under $1,000 per month. Very few places in the United States can make the same claim, or are at least places you would consider living due to low crime and high quality of living.

Idaho is spread out among one of the least populated and dense regions of the United States. If you don’t like crowds and traffic jams, this is a great place to retire. However, if you don’t want to be completely in the middle of nowhere, Boise, Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Nampa, Meridian and Lewiston are decent size towns with several nice amenities.

On average, seniors pay about $1,800 per month living in Idaho, making it one of the least expensive states for seniors living on a fixed income in Idaho.

Features of Senior Condos and Housing in Idaho

Since there is more land here to develop, Idaho has a reputation for providing more spacious independent living communities and apartments for seniors than what you would find in higher density regions of the United States. Elderly housing generally features large floor plans, lots of windows, stair-free apartment units, non-slip flooring and other luxuries like a fitness center, or even a spa or pool.

Low income elderly Idaho residents will appreciate additional services some senior citizen apartment complexes may provide such as community laundry facilities, 24/7 security personnel and security cameras, private parking, exclusive community events and other recreational opportunities that you don’t even have to get into a car to enjoy. You would be hard pressed to find your money stretch further in retirement than it does in Idaho!
