The Many Benefits of Aging in a Community in Boise Idaho

The Many Benefits of Aging in a Community in Boise Idaho


There’s comfort in being around people who share common interests, goals, and challenges. That comfort in a community doesn’t wane with age – it actually deepens. Whether it’s proudly talking about grandchildren or lamenting the fact that our eyes aren’t as good as they used to be, it helps to be around people who not only understand what we’re saying but actually feel the same joys and concerns as well.
That’s why many boomers are deciding to move into an active adult community. In the latest 55places National Housing Survey, they were described by one out of three seniors as an “outgoing, social community of likeminded people.”

Paramount Subdivision in Meridian Idaho

Paramount is a newer subdivision that is one square mile located just off Chinden Blvd., between Meridian and Linder Road. If you are looking for a planned community that offers a wide variety of homes and a good mix of demographics, then this is it. 
Paramount is Meridian's most comprehensive master planned community. That means that virtually everything within our mile-square boundary--both residential and commercial--has been planned in advance to exist in harmony with the elements around it. Strong architectural and quality controls are in place to protect your home's value and the integrity of the community. This is important as we are seeing a lot of new subdivisions pop up that really don't have that quality control in place. If you are coming from out of state, you may want to consider this area just for that reason. 

You can search all homes inside the Paramount Subdivision right here. 

The schools that are within Paramount are listed below. ...
