What to Consider About Assisted Living in Marshfield

The Division of Quality Assurance regulates assisted living communities in Marshfield and other cities throughout Wisconsin. The division licenses providers and performs regular compliance checks to ensure they follow health and care requirements. It also handles complaints families lodge against senior care communities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Marshfield

 

  • Marshfield Medical Center provides a full spectrum of health care services for seniors living in Marshfield. However, several other hospitals, including the Aspirus Riverview and Wausau hospitals, fall within comfortable driving distance of the city.

 

  • Marshfield has an overall cost of living much lower than the national average. Many individual expenses cost significantly less than typical nationwide. For example, health care costs 28.7% less, and food expenses sit 18.7% below the norm. Seniors also pay approximately 32.6% less than average for transportation.

 

  • Marshfield's sales tax rate stands at 5.5% — much lower than the U.S. average of 7.3%. In Wisconsin, income tax rates range from 3.5% to 7.65%, with the highest bracket only for annual incomes above $304,170. The state doesn't tax Social Security income, either, letting seniors keep more of their retirement income.

 

  • Marshfield experiences 48 inches of snow annually, while the national average is 28 inches per year. Although winters can be very cold, with average temperatures hitting 4.3 degrees Fahrenheit vs. the 21.7 degrees Fahrenheit nationwide, summer temperatures sit 5.9 degrees Fahrenheit below the norm. Fortunately, assisted living facilities have climate control and offer plenty to do indoors when temperatures are uncomfortable. 

 

  • Overall, crime rates measure low in Marshfield. Compared on a 100-point scale, the city has a violent crime rate of 7.2 vs. 22.7 for the entire country. Property crime rates also rate lower than average at 31.4, compared to the nation's 35.4.

 

 

  • The air quality in Marshfield generally falls within the U.S. Air Quality Index's good category, reflecting comfortable conditions for most people. Weed pollen levels sometimes soar, depending on the season, but levels of natural allergens remain low for the most part.
