What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bloomer

The small city of Bloomer was founded in the late-1840s when a merchant chose the location as the site for a mill. Today, the city is home to about 1,000 residents, roughly 13% of whom are aged 65 and over.  There are four assisted living facilities in the Bloomer region, including three in the city proper and one more in nearby Chippewa Falls to provide support to those seniors who may need assistance with the aspects of daily living. 

In Bloomer and throughout Wisconsin, these facilities are categorized by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services as community-based residential facilities, residential care apartment complexes or adult family homes, depending on the populations they serve.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bloomer

  • In Bloomer, as in all of Wisconsin, seniors do not pay state income tax on Social Security benefits or income from government pensions, but all other types of retirement income are taxed. This may affect their assisted living budgets.
  • The Bloomer area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Mayo Clinic Health System – Chippewa Valley, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Transportation services for seniors age 60 and over is provided courtesy of the county's Aging and Disability Resource Center. Seniors receive transportation to and from medical appointments. Transportation to other locations may be available, depending on funding. 
  • The overall cost of living in Bloomer is about 6% below the nationwide average and 4% below the statewide average. Healthcare expenses, including doctor's office visits and hospital stays, are about 3% more expensive here than elsewhere in the state and 8% higher than in the nation as a whole, which may be a concern for seniors with chronic health conditions.
  • Winters in Bloomer may be very cold and snowy, with January lows in the single digits and an average snowfall of 45 inches, versus the nationwide seasonal low of 22 degrees and 28 inches of annual snowfall. Summers are relatively mild, however, with highs in the low-80s. Bloomer's climate may be ideal for seniors who enjoy experiencing four distinct seasons.  
  • Bloomer is a safe place to live, with property crime and violent crime rates that are well below the national average. On a scale of one to 100, with a low score representing less crime, the violent crime rate is 9.3 and the property crime rate is 18.1, compared to the U.S. averages of 22.7 and 35.4. This may appeal to seniors looking for a safe city for their retirement years.
