What to Consider About Assisted Living in Baraboo

Baraboo, famous for being the birthplace of the Ringling Brothers Circus, is a city in Sauk County, Wisconsin. The community has a large senior population, with 17 percent of its 12,000 residents being 65 years or older. There are 10 assisted living facilities located in the Baraboo area, and five are within city limits.

These facilities, like their counterparts in the rest of Wisconsin, are licensed by the state Department of Health Services. In Wisconsin, assisted living facilities are designated as community-based residential facilities and are home to five or more residents. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Baraboo

  • Like other communities in Wisconsin, Baraboo has a much less comfortable climate than the national norm. Winter lows are in the single digits, and an average of 43 inches of snow falls each year. Seniors who enjoy winter activities, such as cross country skiing or snowshoeing, may consider this a benefit.
  • Seniors in Baraboo benefit from Wisconsin’s retiree-friendly tax policies. The state doesn’t tax Social Security benefits, and it also doesn’t tax some types of pension income, such as payments from the U.S. military retirement system.
  • Baraboo Transit, a shared ride provider, offers discounted fares to seniors. The service operates throughout the city of Baraboo, and trips outside of city limits are offered for an additional fee. Seniors can also purchase discounted taxi rides through Sauk County’s Aging & Disability Resource Center.
  • The Baraboo area is home to world-class medical facilities, including SSM Health St. Clare Hospital - Baraboo, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • There are plenty of arts and culture opportunities for seniors in Baraboo. Seniors who are interested in the city’s unique history can visit Circus World Museum at a discounted price, which features circus exhibits and live circus performances. Adventurous seniors can go hiking or canoeing in Devil’s Lake State Park. 
  • The cost of living in Baraboo is 12.5 percent lower than the national average. This is mainly due to the city’s lower-than-average housing prices, though transportation and health care costs are also below average.
