Housing for Retirees
With its lush forests, exquisite waterways, and beautiful mountains, it comes as no surprise that Idaho is a popular retirement destination. Gem County offers the best of the best for those considering retiring in our great state. Encouraging the development of retirement villages and new homes helps numerous sectors of our local economy, including both the construction industry and forestry groups.
Retirement housing can take a myriad of unique forms. For example, some retirees opt to live in low maintenance condominiums, which lack the responsibilities of owning a house. Others instead have dreams of owning a large estate and relaxing in the middle of the countryside. Still others instead are reliant on the assistance of dedicated medical teams who can address health problems and provide support for everyday responsibilities.
Assisted living homes provide a wonderful solution for retirees who need around the clock call on help, but do not need full-time care. In these living facilities, retirees enjoy their own private apartments and living spaces, but health professionals make regular visits to ensure residents are getting along okay on their own. Many retirees in Idaho first opt to live independently, either in a condo or traditional home, but then move on to one of these facilities as their health deteriorates.
Encouraging the development of new housing projects takes several different forms. We aim to work as a liaison between the various parties within this unique sector, in order to spur increased cooperation and revenue growth. By supporting these initiatives, we aim to publicize the strengths of Gem County, while working to secure a more stable financial future for those who call this region home.
Of course, supporting the creation of retirement housing options is not only beneficial to those involved with construction of such facilities. Senior citizens have specific needs that must be addressed by qualified professionals. From hospitals to pharmacies, medical clinics, and more, seniors support local companies and make a sizable economic impact. By ensuring that Gem County is home to retirement options for seniors, we make certain that we don’t neglect an important segment of the population.
In addition to supporting the local businesses who provide home building, real estate, and medical services to potential new residents, the Gem County Chamber of Commerce Economic Development Foundation aims to educate would-be citizens by providing them with a comprehensive overview of the many reasons to consider moving to Gem County. From the picturesque, historic streets of Emmett to the endless fields of countryside, Gem County has plenty to offer. Furthermore, our local business owners provide a wide range of amenities and services, ensuring those living in our county have plenty of commercial options available to them. Working to promote our region is truly what we do best!
