    What to Consider About Assisted Living in De Forest

    Located in Dane County along the Yahara River, the Village of DeForest has a population of over 10,000, 9.6 percent of whom are aged 65 years and older. The village has four assisted living options, and there are an additional 40 facilities available in neighboring communities, including Waunakee, Sun Prairie and Madison, all of which are licensed, registered and certified by the Department of Health Services as per state requirements.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in De Forest

    • Just a short drive from Madison, residents of DeForest can enjoy the state capital's many arts and cultural offerings at venues such as the Chazen Museum of ArtWisconsin Historical Museum or one of the city's many theaters.
    • Compared to the U.S. average of 100, the cost of living in DeForest scores a 112. This difference is most influenced by high housing costs, as residents can actually expect to save on grocery and health costs.
    • A low rate of crime can offer peace of mind for seniors. DeForest's rate of crime is lower than both the statewide and national averages. In fact, the Madison area is rated the #1 most secure place to live in the U.S. compared to all other large metropolitan areas.
    • As seen across the state of Wisconsin, DeForest residents experience very cold winters. Temperatures can drop to 10 degrees and an average of 44 inches of snow falls each winter.
    • DeForest has an array of community resources for seniors, including the DeForest Area Community and Senior Center, an organization that offers a safe space for seniors to engage in activities to benefit their physical, mental and emotional well-being.
    • There is no dedicated transportation system serving the village, which may make it difficult for seniors to navigate the village, especially during cold winter months.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in De Forest

    While the Medicaid State Plan in Wisconsin does offer some coverage for personal care services, some individuals may need to seek supplementary support. As one of six states that offers non-Medicaid state-funded programs, seniors in Wisconsin have access to a number of resources that may help to reduce the financial burden of costs associated with assisted living. The Dane County Department of Public Services (DCDPS) offers programs specific to adults aged 60 and up, and provides information on agencies where seniors can access financial support.
