    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Brown Deer

    Brown Deer, located in southeast Wisconsin along the shores of Lake Michigan, was first settled by the Yankees. Legend has it that the town was named in honor of a deer that jumped through a saloon door and disrupted a card game or after a deer that stuck its head in a window. History, however, has proven that the town already had its name before either of these incidents took place.

    Today, Brown Deer is home to a sizable senior population with 16.6% of residents being aged 65 or older. To help accommodate this population, there are two assisted living facilities located within the city limits and another 35 located in nearby neighborhoods. Assisted living facilities in Brown Deer and throughout Wisconsin are overseen by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Brown Deer

    • Wisconsin does not tax Social Security benefits or public pensions, which could leave more money in the assisted living budgets of Brown Deer seniors.
    • The overall cost of living in Brown Deer is 96.4, lower than the state average of 97.8 and the national average of 100. Although area seniors can expect to pay less for groceries, healthcare and transportation are both higher than the state and national averages at 105.4 and 114.2, respectively. Seniors with restrictive budgets may want to keep the higher costs of transportation and healthcare in mind when preparing for their monthly expenses.
    • Although violent crime rates in Brown Deer are lower than the national average of 22.7, at 17.5, the city’s property crime rates are higher than the national average of 35.4, at 59.7. Seniors planning to retire to the area may want to ensure that their chosen facility is well-lit with security systems in place.
    • The Brown Deer area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Milwaukee.
    • Brown Deer seniors have several options for medical transportation through IndependenceFirst, with some offering discounts and others that are covered by Medicaid programs. SeniorExpress also provides door-to-door transportation to medical appointments and errands for area seniors. Rides through this service must be booked in advance.
    • Residents of Brown Deer enjoy summer temperatures of 83 degrees, along with 13-degree winter temperatures. The city gets 35 inches of rain and 44 inches of snow each year, something for seniors with mobility issues to keep in mind.
