    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fort Atkinson

    Fort Atkinson is located in southern Wisconsin on the Rock River, a tributary of the Mississippi River. Lake Koshkonong is less than 6 miles to the south, giving water-loving seniors a variety of outdoor recreational opportunities in the immediate area. Adults aged 65 and older make up 16.6% of Fort Atkinson’s population of approximately 12,500.

    To accommodate senior residents who need help with daily activities, such as shopping, housekeeping and health monitoring, Fort Atkinson provides five assisted living facilities (ALFs), with another seven in nearby cities. In the state, ALFs are known as community-based residential facilities (CBRFs) and residential care apartment complexes (RCACs). 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fort Atkinson

    • Fort Atkinson's low Sperling’s Comfort Index score of 40 out of 100 is primarily due to 35 inches of rain, 38 inches of snow and only 189 sunny days per year on average. Active seniors may find it hard to get outdoors as often as they like.
    • The American Lung Association grades Fort Atkinson’s location in Jefferson County a “C” for ozone pollution. This may limit the time those with lung or heart conditions can safely spend outside on high-pollution days.
