What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bayside

Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, the village of Bayside is the most northeastern community of Milwaukee County. It has a population of around 4,400, and sits just 15 minutes from downtown Milwaukee, making it a good option for those who desire the atmosphere of a small community, but still enjoy easy access to the amenities and attractions of a large metropolitan center.

Roughly 21 percent of residents are aged 65 and older, and to accommodate this aging demographic, two assisted living facilities are located in Bayside, itself, with an additional 48 in surrounding communities, including Brown Deer, Glendale and Milwaukee. Assisted living facilities in Bayside, just as in all of Wisconsin, are licensed and certified by the state Department of Health Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bayside

  • The Milwaukee County Transit System has no fixed route to serve the village locally. However, MCTS has Transit Express and Transit Plus programs that can provide eligible seniors with door-to-door transportation to medical appointments, grocery stores or social engagements anywhere within Milwaukee County. Rides to appointments are accompanied by a small charge, while all other rides are free.

  • Residents of Bayside enjoy a four-season climate, and it receives an overall rating of 44 (with 100 being the most comfortable and the U.S. average being 54.1). In summer, temperatures can reach highs of 81 degrees. While the area does get around 44 inches of snow each year, average winter lows are around 15 degrees, which is considerably higher than other Wisconsin municipalities.

  • Though the average cost of living in Wisconsin falls below the national score of 100, the cost of living in Bayside is significantly higher at 127.4. The largest contributing factors to this discrepancy are high housing and transportation costs.

  • Bayside has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Bayside Senior Center, known as the LX Club, an organization provides a place for seniors to gather and engage in cultural, social, charitable and educational activities.

  • While there are Aurora Medical Center locations nearby in Fox Point and Glendale, Bayside has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital, Columbia St. Mary's, located in Milwaukee.

  • Throughout the year, the village hosts a number of community events, including an annual picnic and movie nights in the park, and with the vibrant metropolitan center of Milwaukee located just a short drive away, seniors can enjoy a number of exciting cultural venues, such as the Milwaukee Art Museum, Pabst Theater and the Mitchell Park Conservatory.

Paying for Assisted Living in Bayside

Assisted Living costs in Bayside start around $0 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of assisted living is $4,000 per month, according to the latest figures from Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey.

It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Bayside and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Bayside

Wisconsin's Medicaid State Plan offers assistance with some personal care services, including programs such as PACE and IRIS; however, seniors may still need to seek additional financial support to offset the costs associated with assisted living facilities. It's of only six states to offer non-Medicaid state-funded programs via the Milwaukee County Department on Aging's Family Care program.
