What to Consider About Assisted Living in Eau Claire

Eau Claire is a lively community in northwestern Wisconsin situated along the Chippewa River. As Wisconsin's eighth-largest city, Eau Clair has a senior population of approximately 15 percent. That senior population can choose from 25 assisted living facilities in the greater Eau Claire area. In Eau Claire, as well as the rest of Wisconsin, assisted living facilities (ALF) are defined as facilities that supervise individuals in need of some assistance with daily living activities. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services licenses and regulates the four categories of ALFs throughout Eau Claire.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Eau Claire

  • The Eau Claire area is home to world-class medical facilities, including HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital and Marshfield Clinic Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • The Eau Claire area is serviced by the Eau Claire Transit bus system. Seniors choosing to live in this city qualify for more than half-off regular fare.

  • Eau Claire is considered 19 percent cheaper than Madison, the capital of Wisconsin. Seniors will find groceries, transportation and health costs in Eau Claire less expensive than in Madison.

  • Eau Claire has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Aging and Disability Resource Center, an organization that provides benefits counseling, nutrition services and educational workshops for the aging population, as well as one senior center.

  • Northwestern Wisconsin is known for its varying climate and the four seasons its residents experience. Weather in Eau Claire ranges from an average of 70s in the summer to the teens in the winter. Typically experiencing 47 inches of snow each year, the area receives nearly double the national average snowfall. Seniors with health concerns aggravated by cold climates might look outside of Eau Claire for assisted living.

  • Though eight counties within Wisconsin have received failing grades for air quality, Eau Claire County hasn't experienced any high pollution days for three years. Seniors with respiratory illnesses looking to move to Eau Claire should be aware of the varying pollution levels throughout the state.
