What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lake Geneva

The Division of Quality Assurance of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services is responsible for licensing and regulating assisted living facilities in Lake Geneva, and they do so through their Bureau of Assisted Living. Assisted living facilities are surveyed every 2 years to ensure compliance with administrative codes and standards, and they investigate complaints against providers if they arise. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lake Geneva

  • Though the property crime rate in Lake Geneva is higher than the U.S. average, it's a relatively safe place to live, with a low violent crime rate of 10.1 on a 100-point scale. This is less than half the U.S. average of 22.7, indicating that Lake Geneva experiences fewer incidents of violent crime per capita than most places in the nation.
  • Costs related to housing and utilities in Lake Geneva are higher than U.S. averages, but this should not affect seniors who reside in assisted living facilities. As an added bonus, the overall cost of living in the city is 3.7 points lower than the U.S. average, making retirement dollars stretch a little further.
  • Lake Geneva experiences cold winters with around 36 inches of snow per year. However, the climate is perfect for seniors who would rather face the cold in winter than endure scorching summers, as the highest average summer temperature is a pleasant 83 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Lake Geneva has around 83 doctors per 100,000 people, vastly less than the national average of 210 per 100,000. However, more than 50 hospitals and hundreds of doctors are located within a 50-mile radius of the town due to its proximity to larger cities.
  • The air quality in Lake Geneva is nowhere near perfect, but it’s much better than in most parts of the country. According to the Best Places Air Quality Index, the U.S. air quality average is 58 out of 100, while Lake Geneva’s air quality scores 76. Plus, many assisted living facilities are equipped with air purification systems to improve the quality of the air within the facilities — a bonus for seniors suffering from respiratory illnesses.
