March 2016 RenataLaszuk NursingHome, Planning for Retirement Care, Senior Caregiving (0) Idaho is known as The Gem State and, due to its relatively low cost of living, often makes the list of best states in which to retire. Are like the ~4.2 percent of the elderly population receiving nursing home care? if you are in Idaho, you’re in luck. Idaho is the 9th least expensive state in Caregiverlist’s national nursing home cost database, with a room rate of $247.57, the state average of single and shared rooms and has an average star rating of 3.2 out of 5 stars. Senior care planning includes understanding costs of nursing homes, along with their overall ratings. Caregiverlist updates our nursing home cost database so seniors and their families can get an idea of long-term care costs in their area. Below is a snapshot of Idaho nursing home costs and ratings: Total Number of Nursing Homes: 84 Average Single Price: $284.33 Average Double Price: $210.81 Average Rating: 3.2 Star Rating Snapshot: 5-Star: 7 4-Star: 44 3-Star: 24 2-Star: 3 1-Star: 6 The Idaho nursing home with one of the highest Caregiverlist Nursing Home Rating is Ashton Living Center in Ashton, Idaho. Its single room daily price of $166.00 is 41.5% lower than the average single price of $284.33 and its semi-private room price is $156.00 or 25.7% lower than the average price of $210.81 for semi-private nursing home rooms in Idaho.

If 24-hour care is not needed, many seniors and their families choose in-home care provided by a qualified CNA, an assisted living community, adult day care, or a combination of these. The average yearly rate for professional senior home care in Idaho is approximately $$46,332, according to a recent Genworth Cost of Care survey.
