What to Consider About Assisted Living in Milton

Home to Milton House, the first grout building in America and oldest concrete building still standing in the United States, the city of Milton, Wisconsin, offers a unique blend of a rich, historical past and modern-day living. Of its 5,600 residents, more than 16% are aged 65 and older. Some of these seniors may benefit from the care services provided by assisted living facilities.

Community-based residential facilities (CBRFs), residential care apartment complexes (RCACs) and adult family homes are all recognized as types of assisted living facilities in the state of Wisconsin and are licensed, certified and registered by the Department of Health Services. A total of 37 of these facilities can be found in Milton and its surrounding communities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Milton

  • Milton's low overall cost of living may be appealing to budget-conscious seniors looking to save on daily living expenses. At 91.6, it's lower than both the U.S. national average of 100 and statewide average of 97.8.
  • Milton has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Janesville.
  • With a violent crime rating of 13.3 out of 100 and property crime rating of 23, seniors in Milton can feel a sense of safety in their daily lives. These numbers are lower than both national and statewide averages in the same categories.
  • Like much of the state, Milton residents are subject to harsh winters, which could be difficult for some seniors to cope with. The area averages around 35 inches of snow each year, and temperatures are known to drop as low as 10 degrees.
  • Milton has an array of community resources for seniors, including The Gathering Place, an organization that operates as a nonprofit activity center for seniors, offering a daily calendar of classes and programs, as well as workshops, presentations and special events.
  • While Milton does not have its own public transportation system, the Janesville Transit System (JTS) offers the Janesville-Milton-Whitewater Innovation Express service to serve residents across the region. All buses in this service are accessible, and seniors are eligible for half-price fares.
