Boise and its neighboring communities are home to 61,602 amazing seniors aged 65 years and older. And thanks to the baby boomers, by 2030 this number will increase to 145,732 or 20% of our population! Seniors are everywhere, and there’s no denying their importance to our community. So, as seniors become increasingly prominent and influential in Boise, where will they all live?
Many seniors will choose to remain in their private homes for as long as possible where they have happily lived for so many years. But for others this option is difficult, either because they don’t want to live alone, or because they have some physical or medical needs and would feel safer if someone were nearby, or because they simply want to live in a place where they can enjoy the company and companionship of other like-minded friends.
Thankfully, wonderful housing alternatives are offered in abundance throughout Boise. These are the Independent Living Communities, where active seniors are attracted by a host of pleasant amenities offered in beautiful, comfortable surroundings. Seniors enjoy the privacy of their own affordable apartment where they can do their own cooking and entertaining, and they also have the option of using the community dining room. Additionally, they may engage in a variety of fun activities offered within the community, or participate in community excursions to a variety of Boise’s many educational and pleasurable attractions.
One beautiful Independent Living Community that stands out among them all is Bonaventure Place, situated in a quiet residential neighborhood in Boise. In addition to the many benefits that attract active and independent seniors, Bonaventure also extends the availability of healthcare services not offered at any other similar community in Idaho. Bonaventure partners with House Calls (www.HouseCalls-LLC.com) who arranges regularly scheduled, on-site, state-of-the-art Primary Care to be delivered to their residents by a physician in the comfort and convenience of the community. All residents are free to take advantage of this old fashioned ‘House Call’ whenever they choose.
Seniors appreciate communities who appeal to their needs – the desire to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible, to remain as healthy and active as possible, to socialize with good friends and not be isolated and lonely, the need to be surrounded by a trusted network of caregivers, the need for an affordable and comfortable home that doesn’t impose financial stress upon them, the need to have someone dedicated to helping them care for themselves when this is required, and the need for assistance with transportation. Boise’s Independent Living Communities are thriving and have become a popular choice for seniors when selecting a home, because they address these essential needs in conveniently located, beautiful surroundings.
