    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Oshkosh

    Oshkosh, Wisconsin is located 88.4 miles northwest of Milwaukee and 51 miles southwest of Green Bay. Oshkosh's senior citizens make up approximately 13 percent of the population. Within the Oshkosh area, there are 19 assisted living facilities that serve the elderly residents in the city. 

    In Oshkosh and all of Wisconsin, assisted living facilities (ALF) are defined as facilities that supervise individuals with some level of need who choose to live without 24-hour nursing care. There are four types of ALFs — adult day care, adult family homes, community-based residential facilities and residential care apartment complexes — and each is regulated and licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Oshkosh

    • Oshkosh is serviced by the GO Transit public transportation system. Seniors need to be aware that this mass transit service does not run on Sunday. Older adults age 60 and over receive a 50 percent discount on bus fares with a valid ID. 

    • The Oshkosh area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Aurora Medical Center Oshkosh and Ascension NE Wisconsin Mercy Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Oshkosh has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Oshkosh Senior Center, an organization that provides citizens with fitness classes, health screenings and counseling services. 

    • Oshkosh's crime rate is higher than 85 percent of the other towns and cities throughout the state of Wisconsin. In other words, seniors have a one in 40 chance of being a victim of either property or violent crime in this area. When examining Oshkosh for an ALF, seniors need to be aware of the high crime rates within the city.

    • The highest average monthly temperature in July in Oshkosh is around 72 degrees and the average lowest January temperature is around 10 degrees. Seniors who like warm summers and plenty of sunshine should think about looking somewhere outside of Oshkosh, as Wisconsin experiences harsh winters and 10 more inches of snow than the national average. 

    • The air quality in Oshkosh is around 6 percent cleaner than the national average air quality. Seniors with chronic lung conditions such as bronchitis or asthma should consider ALFs in areas with good air quality.
