    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Chippewa Falls

    The former lumber town of Chippewa Falls is a vibrant community on Wisconsin's Chippewa River. Local residents have access to a wide range of services and amenities like the 318-acre Irvine Park & Zoo. The community also boasts a network of clubs and organizations, including a local senior center.

    There are 25 assisted living facilities in the Chippewa Falls area, five within the city boundaries and 20 in the nearby communities of Eau Claire, Bloomer and Altoona. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is responsible for regulating facilities in the state.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Chippewa Falls

    • While summers in Chippewa Falls are pleasant, with July highs reaching an average of 82 degrees, winters can be very cold, with January lows falling to an average of 5. This could create additional barriers to seniors for getting outside during these months, especially those already living with mobility restrictions.

    • Chippewa Falls is one of the more affordable communities in the U.S., which is helpful to seniors living with low incomes. The cost of living is 9 percent lower than the national average.

    • Wisconsin residents who receive social security benefits are not taxed on this income.

    • There is no mass transit program in the city, but the Chippewa Falls Shared Ride Transit Program is available as a service within the city limits. Passengers aged 65 and older are automatically eligible to apply for reduced fares.

    • Local care facilities may wish to visit the Chippewa Valley Cultural Association, which operates out of the historic Heyde Center for the Arts, for supervised excursions. The association is a resource for creative communities — whether locally based or international — who wish to develop and share their talents.
    • The Chippewa Falls area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Joseph’s Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
