What to Consider About Assisted Living in Cross Plains

The small village of Cross Plains is home to several parks, including a municipal park that has a community swimming pool and picnic shelters. Approximately 4,300 people reside in this community, and there is a large senior population that accounts for roughly 12% of residents

Some Cross Plains seniors who are no longer able to live alone safely reside in assisted living facilities. In this community, as in all of Wisconsin, assisted living facilities are governed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and categorized according to the amenities and facility features they provide. There are two assisted living facilities in Cross Plains and six more nearby.  

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Cross Plains

  • The air quality in Cross Plains is exceptional. According to the American Lung Association, the region has very little ozone and particle pollution, which may make it a great option for seniors, particularly those with conditions like asthma.
  • Social Security retirement benefits and public pension income are not taxed in Wisconsin, meaning that retirees who rely solely on these types of income do not pay state taxes. Private pension income and withdrawals from retirement accounts are fully taxed. 
  • Cross Plains is a fairly expensive place to live, with living expenses as a whole averaging about 17% more than the national average and 19% more than the statewide average. This may be a concern for seniors who have limited income and assets.  
  • The Cross Plains region has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Madison.
  • Year-round temperatures in Cross Plains range between 10 degrees and 83 degrees, and the village receives about 37 inches of rain and 44 inches of snow annually. Seniors may want to find out what type of indoor activities are offered by their assisted living facility during the cold months. 
  • On a 100-point crime index, Cross Plains' property crime rate is about 20 points below the national average, and the violent crime rate is about 15 points below the national average, which may provide peace of mind for local seniors and their loved ones.
