What to Consider About Assisted Living in Horicon

Horicon is a very small village on the southern edge of a protected wildlife refuge, straddling the banks of the Rock River, about 30 miles northeast of Milwaukee. Horicon's larger community, Dodge County, is home to just over 87,700 people, 17 percent of whom are seniors age 65 and over. To look after those who need some help with their daily lives, but who can still live largely independently, the Horicon area is home to at least 62 assisted living facilities.

These sites are licensed, like all residential care facilities in the state, through the Wisconsin Department of Health Services Bureau of Assisted Living Division of Quality Assurance.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Horicon

  • The weather in Horicon is balmy in summer, when average high temperatures reach 81 degrees. The local climate changes with the season to a very frigid overnight average of just 8 degrees in winter. Warm seasons bring 33 inches of rain to the Horicon area, while winter sees close to 40 inches of snowfall locally.
  • The cost of living in Horicon is just 87 percent of the national average cost of living. Healthcare is a relatively higher expense for many Horicon seniors, though the typical cost paid for provider care in town is nearly 1 percent lower than the national average rate for similar services.
  • Crime rates in Horicon are just 10 percent of the average national rate across all categories of crimes reported to the police. Much of this is nonviolent property crime, such as theft. Horicon's violent crime rates are even lower, dropping far below the national average, even for towns of this size.
  • Public transportation for Horicon seniors is generally provided by the Dodge County Specialized Transportation System, a countywide medical and disabled ride service that offers curb-to-curb rides when booked at least three days in advance. Seniors in Horicon should know that this service is not available in severe weather or on public holidays.
  • The Horicon area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as Waupun Memorial Hospital and Watertown Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Horicon has an array of community resources for seniors, including two senior centers and the Aging & Disability Resource Center, an organization that offers consultations for seniors to help them sign up for benefits to which they are entitled.
