What to Consider About Assisted Living in Greendale

Located southwest of Milwaukee, the village of Greendale, Wisconsin, was named a National Historic Landmark in 2012 for its role as a government-sponsored greenbelt community during the Great Depression. This successful model of a planned community is now home to over 14,000 residents, with seniors aged 65 and older making up around 23% of the population.

In the state of Wisconsin, including Greendale, community-based residential facilities (CBRFs), residential care apartment complexes (RCACs), adult family homes and adult day care are all considered types of assisted living facilities and are licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. There are two of these communities available in Greendale and another 48 in the surrounding areas.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Greendale

  • The Milwaukee County Transit System (MCTS) makes it easy for seniors to get around Greendale with a number of fixed route services. MCTS offers a New Freedom program dedicated to providing seniors with tools and resources to help them use the service safely and independently.
  • Winters in Greendale are very harsh, which could be troublesome for seniors who enjoy warm weather and outdoor activities. Temperatures can drop to 13 degrees, and 45 inches of snow is expected each year, which is far higher than the national average of 28 inches.
  • In terms of violent crime, Greendale is considered much safer than the average U.S. city. Out of 100, it receives a score of 9.2 (where lower is better), compared to the national average of 22.7. Property crime, however is much higher at 50.8 compared to 35.4 nationally, which is noteworthy for safety-conscious seniors. 
  • Seniors on a tight budget may need plan carefully when choosing to live in Greendale. Based on the U.S. national average of 100, the overall cost of living is rated 109, which is also higher than the statewide average of 97.8.
  • Greendale offers many local arts and culture opportunities for seniors. Historic Downtown Greendale is home to a collection of boutiques, shops and restaurants and hosts a number of events and celebrations throughout the year. Other popular attractions include Trimborn Farm, a Civil War homestead, and the internationally renowned Whitnall Park Boerner Botanical Gardens.
  • Greendale has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospitals located in Milwaukee.
