What to Consider About Assisted Living in Minocqua

Known as the Island City, the town of Minocqua is located in the heart of Wisconsin’s Northwoods and is home to over 4,000 residents. Almost 30% percent of this population is aged 65 and older and may benefit from the care offered by an assisted living facility.

There are four classifications of assisted living facilities in Wisconsin that offer varying levels of care: community-based residential facilities (CBRFs), residential care apartment complexes (RCACs), adult family homes and adult day care. There are five of these residences located in Minocqua and its surrounding communities, all of which are licensed and certified by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Minocqua

  • Low violent crime rates may give seniors peace of mind as they go about their daily activities. On a scale to 100, with 100 representing high crime, the town is rated 14.3, which is lower than the U.S. national average of 22.7.
  • At 101.5, the overall cost of living in Minocqua is slightly higher than the typical Wisconsin city, which averages 97.8, so seniors may have to budget carefully. While health and transportation costs fall below the state average, housing costs are significantly higher.
  • The Minocqua area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Marshfield Clinic-Minocqua Center and Howard Young Medical Center in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Minocqua experiences all four seasons, which presents residents with access to a wide variety of diverse recreational opportunities; however, the low winter temperatures and heavy snowfall may be challenging for some seniors.
  • Northwoods Transit Connections offers public transportation services across the Rhinelander, Eagle River and Lakeland area, including Minocqua, and seniors aged 60 and older are eligible for discounted fares.
  • Seniors in Minocqua can enjoy a number of arts and culture opportunities, including concerts and performance at the Campanile Center for the Arts, Wildwood Wildlife Park and local shops in the Reuben Town district.

Review of Country Terrace of Wisconsin in Minocqua

It was a beautiful, clean facility. The staff were friendly and the price was right. It didn't smell like a nursing home or a hospital.
