What to Consider About Assisted Living in Hartford

Hartford is a small city of around 15,000 people, of which almost 15 percent are 65 years of age or over. The Rubicon River runs through the center of the city, and there are many parks where seniors can sit and enjoy the views.

There are three assisted living facilities in Hartford for seniors looking to settle in the area. An additional nine can be found in communities nearby, including Slinger, West Bend and Jackson. All provide care to seniors looking for long-term care and are licensed by Wisconsin's Bureau of Assisted Living.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Hartford

  • The Hartford area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Aurora Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • Seniors have a wide range of arts and culture to experience in Hartford. Some assisted living facilities may organize trips to the city's attractions, including the Wisconsin Automotive Museum or the art gallery at the Schauer Arts Center.  The Schauer Arts Center in downtown Hartford also has a theater which stages performances throughout the year and hosts community art groups and art classes.

  • Hartford's crime rate of 20 per 1,000 residents is higher than 76 percent of Wisconsin's towns and cities. Although the violent crime rate is less than one per 1,000 residents, the property crime rate is 19.45 per 1,000 residents, which is on par with the state average.

  • The Hartford City Taxi Service provides transport to residents of Hartford. It is a shared ride taxi service and all vehicles are wheelchair accessible. Seniors over the age of 60 are eligible for a Taxi Discount card.

  • Hartford receives 40 inches of snow each year, which can keep seniors inside during the winter months. The average low in January is only 10 degrees, which can be challenging for people with health issues exacerbated by extreme low temperatures. However, summers are mild with July highs averaging 81 degrees.

  • Hartford's cost of living is nearly equal to the national average. Although the cost of groceries and transport is on par with the rest of the U.S., the price of health care is around 14 percent higher, making it an expensive addition to a senior's budget.

Paying for Assisted Living in Hartford

Assisted Living costs in Hartford start around $4,215 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of assisted living is $4,000 per month, according to the latest figures from Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey.

It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Hartford and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.
