    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Barron

    In Barron, Wisconsin, seniors can stay active and commune with nature on the wooded Cedar Side Walking Trail, and learn how area inhabitants survived in past centuries at the town's Pioneer Village Museum. These days, 45,164 people live in the city, 21.9% of whom are at least 65 years old. Some may be looking for assisted living facilities, which help seniors with the activities of daily living, such as grooming and hygiene.

    There are two assisted living facilities in Barron and five more in nearby neighborhoods. They are licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Public Health Services. These facilities are known as adult day care, adult family home, community-based residential facilities (CBRFs) or residential care apartment complexes (RCACs).

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Barron

The city gets 33 inches of rain per year, five more inches than the U.S. average, and 53 inches of snow annually, 25 inches more than the national median.
