What to Consider About Assisted Living in Menasha

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services licenses and oversees assisted living facilities in Menasha, officially recognizing them as community-based residential facilities. This department regulates the minimum and maximum number of residents facilities can have, safety and security features, staff screenings, training procedures and residents’ rights. It also publishes specific licensing rules related to care planning.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Menasha

  • Menasha scores 38 points on a total crime index, indicating that its crime rate trends lower than 38% of U.S. communities. In a given year, the city reports a little less than 13 illegal incidents per 1,000 people, with nonviolent offenses accounting for the majority of crimes. Residents only have a 1 in 688 chance of becoming victims of violent crime, which is about half the state norm. This statistic may appeal to those considering local assisted living services.
  • Menasha doesn’t have a hospital within its limits, but ThedaCare Regional Medical Center Neenah sits less than 3 miles outside the city center. This hospital has a 24-hour emergency room and a large multidisciplinary team of licensed physicians who specialize in fields such as rheumatology, internal medicine and rehabilitative therapy. Additionally, assisted living facilities in Menasha often provide medical concierge services or on-site wellness checks to help residents manage their health.
  • Overall, living expenses in Menasha fall about 19% below the national norm and 9% below the state average, indicating affordability for those seeking budget-friendly senior care services. Housing costs are meager here, which may bring down assisted living costs, and comparatively budget-friendly health care services benefit seniors managing chronic health conditions.
  • Wisconsin doesn’t tax Social Security benefits, alleviating the tax burden of Menasha seniors who rely primarily on this form of income. Other retirement earnings, including withdrawals from pre tax retirement accounts and private pension income, are taxable at rates between 3.50% and 7.65%, although public pensions are tax-free in some instances. However, the state has a retirement income exclusion of up to $5,000, helping seniors put more money toward assisted living expenses.
  • Menasha scores 61 points on the AARP Livability Index. This rank outpaces the U.S. city average by 13 points and indicates a comparatively high degree of favorability for seniors. Local assisted living residents benefit from features such as the high hospital patient satisfaction score of 70.1% and the low rate of preventable hospitalizations, which comes in at 23.5 incidents per 1,000 patients.
