The 10 Best Assisted Living Facilities in Beloit, WI for 2024

Situated just north of Rockford, Beloit is a small but vibrant city in Wisconsin known for its farmers' markets, live entertainment and abundance of cultural attractions such as museums and art galleries, offering plenty of things for seniors to do. With people aged 65+ comprising 13.4% of the city's 36,449 residents, fewer seniors live in Beloit than the national average of 17.3%.

These communities, costing $4,600 per month on average in Beloit, offer a good alternative to other types of senior living for those who prefer a more social and active lifestyle. While expenses are $100 more in Beloit than the national average, they match Wisconsin's norm.

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Beloit

Assisted living residences in Beloit and other locations throughout Wisconsin are regulated by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. The department provides information about senior living on its website and manages a complaint service families may contact if they suspect caregivers aren't treating loved ones fairly or ensuring their safety.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Beloit

  • Beloit's continental climate can lead to occasional humid conditions throughout the region, but the weather is quite comfortable overall. While the ambient temperature regularly hits 11.3 degrees Fahrenheit in winter vs. 21.7 degrees Fahrenheit nationwide, summer temperatures are 2.9 degrees cooler than average in Beloit, so seniors who struggle with the heat may find the city's climate very tolerable.
  • The cost of living in Beloit is only 76.7 when measured on a 100-point index that locks the national average at 100, indicating that prices of goods and services are about 23.3% less than usual. This low cost of living may make the city ideal for seniors looking for an affordable retirement.
  • Health care is 11% cheaper than average in Beloit. Although the city has 54 fewer physicians per 100,000 people compared to the national norm, Rockford, located just a few minutes' drive across the border in Illinois, has a slightly higher-than-average physician density, giving seniors more options.
  • Beloit Memorial Hospital provides local emergency care and medical treatments in the city, but proximity to Janesville and Rockford offers the convenience of additional hospitals, clinics and pharmacies, such as SSM Health Saint Mary's Hospital Janesville.
  • Crime rates are somewhat high in Beloit, measured on a 100-point scale. Property crimes rank at 45.5, much higher than the national average of 35.4. Violent crimes are also somewhat more prevalent than normal at a rating of 29 in the city vs. 22.7 nationwide. However, security measures utilized in assisted living communities can help make crimes less likely.
  • Beloit has a low sales tax rate of 5.5%, compared to the U.S. average of 7.3%. At 6.3%, the income tax rate is higher than the national norm of 4.6%, but Wisconsin doesn't tax Social Security benefits and certain other forms of retirement income.
  • Public bus transportation is available throughout Rock County. Seniors aged 55+ can also use the Rock County Transit system to travel anywhere throughout Beloit or to Janesville/Evansville Monday to Friday.

Nursing homes offer intensive care for seniors with severe conditions, leading to a steep price of $5,088 more than assisted living.
