    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Medford

    Medford, Wisconsin, is best known as the home of Tombstone pizzas, but the city has plenty for its 315 seniors to do from walking along the Pipeline recreation Trails to stopping by the 8th Street Saloon for a drink. When retail therapy is in order, there’s a Discount Foods Tools and Surplus store that may have exactly what consumers are looking for. The city of Medford also has three assisted living facilities, for seniors who would like assistance with their personal care needs, with one more facility located in nearby Dorchester.

    In Medford and in all of Wisconsin these facilities are licensed and governed by the Bureau of Assisted Living division of the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

    • Medford has a violent crime rate of 17.3, five points lower than the national average of 22.7; and a property crime rate of 35.5, slightly higher than the U.S. average of 35.5. Assisted living facilities generally have security precautions in place like alarms, self-locking doors, and cameras to keep seniors safe.
    • Wisconsin taxes both retirement savings account withdrawals and private pensions which could affect how much money Medford Seniors can contribute toward their expenses.
    • Medford’s cost of living is 86, lower than both the state average of 97.8 and the U.S. average of 100. Groceries, transportation, and housing expenses are all lower than the national average, but healthcare expenses are higher than the average at 102.8, which is something for seniors with chronic medical conditions to consider.
    • The Medford area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Aspirus Medford Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • On a scale of 1 to 100 where lower numbers represent lower air quality, Medford has an air quality rating of 71, which might make the area ideal for seniors with respiratory issues.
    • Living in Medford means cool summers where highs rarely rise above 79 degrees and cold winters with temperatures rarely dropping below 2 degrees. The city also gets 33 inches of rain and 48 inches of snow annually, which could complicate things for seniors who use mobility aids.
