What to Consider About Assisted Living in Greenfield

Assisted living facilities in Greenfield are officially called community-based residential facilities and house five or more older unrelated adults who need personal care services. These facilities are monitored and licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, which enforces regulations and conducts background checks on prospective caregivers. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Greenfield

  • While Greenfield is among the more expensive places to live in Wisconsin, its overall cost of living is about 6% below the national median. Seniors may save money on living expenses, such as meals, utilities, transportation and housing, by moving to assisted living.  
  • Milwaukee County Transit Service operates the public transportation system in Greenfield, connecting the city with nearby communities and helping locals complete errands and attend medical appointments. Those aged 65 and over are eligible for a pass that provides them with a reduced fare. 
  • Seniors in Greenfield don’t pay state income taxes on their Social Security benefits, which may provide more money for assisted living services. Income from retirement accounts is taxable at a rate ranging from 3.54% to 7.65%, depending on the individual’s annual income, and capital gains are treated as regular income.  
  • Property crime is more common in Greenfield than in the typical U.S. city, with most recent data showing that this type of crime occurs at a rate of 2,530 incidents per 100,000 people compared to the respective state and national rates of 1,471 and 2,110. However, the city has one of the lowest violent crime rates in the country, which may provide peace of mind for those moving here during their retirement years. 
  • Greenfield is one of the warmer cities in Wisconsin. July is warm and humid with high temperatures in the low 80s, but humidity levels are fairly low throughout the rest of the year. Winters are very cold with lows around 13 degrees, and the city sees about 45 inches of snow annually. To help older adults attend errands in the winter months, many assisted living facilities provide transportation services.  
  • Health care costs are about 5% higher in Greenfield than in the nation as a whole, which may be a consideration for those managing chronic conditions. There are no hospitals in Greenfield proper, but its proximity to Milwaukee provides easy access to high-performing medical facilities, such as Froedtert Hospital and the Medical College of Wisconsin, a nationally ranked hospital with a broad range of adult specialties.
