What to Consider About Assisted Living in Plover

The village of Plover, Wisconsin, was the very first village in Portage County. Today, the area’s seniors who make up 11% of the population can enjoy visiting the Wisconsin Korean War Veterans Memorial or strolling through Standing Rocks County Park.

There are two assisted living facilities in the city to assist this senior population, along with 35 more located in neighboring towns and villages. In Wisconsin, including Plover, assisted living facilities are governed by the Bureau of Assisted Living division of the Wisconsin Department of Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Plover

  • Wisconsin fully taxes both retirement savings income and private pensions, which could make the purse strings tighter for Plover seniors.
  • Plover has low crime rates which could give seniors and their families some peace of mind. The village has a violent crime rate of 12 and a property crime rate of 24.2, both considerably lower than the respective U.S. averages of 22.7 and 35.4.
  • The overall cost of living in Plover is 93, lower than both the state average of 97.8 and the U.S. average of 100. Seniors can expect to pay less for groceries, housing, transportation and healthcare in the area, which might make this village more affordable than other areas of the state or country.
  • The Plover area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Stevens Point.
  • Seniors with breathing difficulties might prefer living in Plover over other parts of the state. The city has an air quality rating of 81 out of 100 (best), 23 points higher than the national average of 58.
  • Plover’s year-round temperatures range from 7 degrees in winter to 82 degrees in the summer. The village gets 32 inches of rain, six less than the national average of 38 inches, and 46 inches of snow annually, almost 20 more than the national average of 28 inches, which could create difficulties for seniors who rely on mobility aids like canes or walkers. As a result of all of the precipitation, Plover residents only get 186 sunny days per year, lower than the national average of 205. Seniors may want to ensure that facilities have an ample calendar of indoor activities to keep them busy during inclement weather.
