Wisconsin, the Badger State, is an attractive option for many families and seniors. It has a mix of large and small cities such as Milwaukee, Madison, and Green Bay. The cost of living in Wisconsin is lower than average, making it ideal for seniors who want to save money while enjoying a high quality of living.

History buffs may know that the oldest city in Wisconsin is Green Bay. Jean Nicolet, a French explorer, established a tiny trading post there in 1634. Sports fans likely know Green Bay as the home of the NFL's Packers, a team that has won 13 world championships.

Wisconsin is home to over 15,000 lakes, so it's a great place to live if you like fishing. The state's highest natural point is Timm's Hill, which sits at 1,951 feet above sea level. It is located on Highway 13 near Omega. There is no admission, making it free for everyone to visit.

Nature enthusiasts will fit right in here as both Lake Superior and Lake Michigan border Wisconsin. Whether you prefer admiring the wood violet, the state flower that blooms in the spring, or you enjoy listening to the tunes sung by the American robin, the state bird, in the early mornings, you'll like living here. The state offers a plethora of superb assisted living communities from which to choose.

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities are long-term residential options for seniors who require assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) such as medication management, bathing, dressing, and meal preparation.

Depending on the level of care needed, Wisconsin categorizes residential living facilities as adult family homes, community-based residential facilities, or residential care apartment complexes.

What Does Assisted Living Cost in Wisconsin?

In Wisconsin, the average monthly cost of assisted living is $4,000, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey.

Living in a facility in Milwaukee costs an average of $4,025 per month while the monthly average cost in Green Bay is $3,675. Choosing an assisted living facility in other cities such as Fond du Lac, which has an average monthly cost of $3,456, may save you money.

According to the 2017 U.S. Census, Wisconsin is home to more than 956,000 residents over the age of 65.

It is projected that the senior population--those age 65 and over--will grow to be 23.7 percent of the state's total population by 2040. Currently, residents over the age of 65 make up a little over 16 percent of the state's total population as of the latest Census figures.

How Is Assisted Living Regulated in Wisconsin?

The Wisconsin State Department of Health Services Division of Quality Assurance: Bureau of Assisted Living regulates assisted living communities. There are regulations set in place by the Bureau of Assisted Living such as DHS 83 - Community-Based Residential Facilities, DHS 88 - Adult Family Homes, and DHS 89 - Residential Care Apartment Complexes. These regulations will protect you or your loved one and ensure a positive experience while residing in an assisted living community.

The state's Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRC) page provides information on the types of assisted living available for aging seniors. The State of Wisconsin Board on Aging and Long-Term Care also advocates for the rights of long-term residents of assisted living communities.

How Is Assisted Living in Wisconsin Affected by Laws and Taxes?

In Wisconsin, Social Security benefits are not taxed. Wisconsin fully taxes private pensions and withdrawals from retirement accounts such as IRAs and 401(k)s.

Wisconsin's state sales tax is currently 5 percent, which is lower than many other states. Purchasing necessities is not that expensive in this state because of the sales tax.

Wisconsin's wage tax rate ranges between 4 percent and 7.65 percent depending on filing status and income level. These wage tax rate ranges are reasonably average compared to other states, making Wisconsin an ideal home for individuals who want to remain close to their loved ones in an assisted living community.

Politics in Wisconsin

People often identify Wisconsin as a "swing state" in the presidential elections as votes split relatively evenly between Democratic and Republican candidates. Through 1928, Wisconsin was primarily a Republican state. During the Great Depression and World War II, Wisconsin turned Democratic like many others. From the 1940s through 1984, Wisconsin typically voted Republican. The Republican streak changed when Democrats won seven presidential elections from 1988 through 2012. In 2016, Donald Trump won Wisconsin's vote by 0.7 percent.

Fun Facts

  • Madison is the current state capital. However, this was not always the case. Belmont was the original capital established in 1836. During that period, Wisconsin was a territory and not yet a state. The historic site of the Council House and a lodging house for legislators during that time allow tourists to visit. It is west of Belmont Mound State Park.

  • Wisconsin is the dairy capital of the U.S., and it also leads the nation in exports of whey, sweet corn, ginseng root, and cranberries. Wisconsin produces more milk than any other state. The town of Monroe is known and beloved for its production of Swiss cheese. If you are a sweet corn fanatic, visit Sun Prairie's Sweet Corn Festival as it is the largest of its kind.

  • Ed Berners' Ice Cream Parlor, located in Two Rivers, served the first-ever ice cream sundae in 1881. The site is now the location of the Washington House & Two Rivers Historical Museum. Admission is free, so stop in for a treat.
