    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lake Mills

    Located on the scenic eastern shores of Rock Lake in Southern Wisconsin, the small and quiet city of Lake Mills is home to more than 800 residents aged 65 and over. With two assisted living facilities located within the city limits and an additional 12 nearby, seniors with special needs in the area have several choices for accommodations.

    Assisted living facilities in Wisconsin are divided into three categories other than adult day care, including community-based residential facilities (CBRFs), residential care apartment complexes (RCACs) and adult family homes. These are licensed and regulated by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lake Mills

    • Lake Mills is a tranquil community with low rates of violent crime and property crime. The violent crime rate is 13.6 points below the national average and 10.3 points below the Wisconsin average. Seniors here should feel safe in their assisted living facilities and while out in the city.
    • Despite having relatively harsh winters with low temperatures falling to 11 degrees on average in January, summers in Lake Mills are comfortable. This gives active seniors in town several months throughout the year to enjoy spots like Bartel's Beach or Korth Park.
    • Ozone levels have fallen dramatically in Jefferson County, where Lake Mills is located, over the past 20 years, but the area still gets a C for ozone pollution from the American Lung Association. When seniors are planning to go outside, they may want to check the daily air quality first.
    • The cost of living in Lake Mills is similar to many areas throughout the country, just 1% above the average for the United States. It's also just 3.2% above the average for the state of Wisconsin, so seniors and families shouldn't have too much trouble affording the area.
    • Paying for assisted living in Lake Mills may be a bit easier with Wisconsin's somewhat friendly tax policies for seniors. Social Security income isn't taxed at the state level, but income from retirement accounts is.
    • Lake Mills has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Madison.
