    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Port Washington

    Retirees enjoy New England charm and Midwestern friendliness in the historic fishing village of Port Washington. The seat of Ozaukee County rests on the shore of Lake Michigan, about 27 miles north of Milwaukee. History buffs, boaters and anglers find much to do in this maritime wonderland.

    Seniors aged 65 and older make up nearly 15% of Port Washington’s population. Those wanting to live as independently as possible while receiving support with daily activities find three community-based residential facilities (CBRFs) and residential care apartment complexes (RCACs) in Port Washington, with another 10 nearby. Wisconsin’s Department of Health Services licenses and regulates CBRFs and RCACs in the entire state.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Port Washington

    • Seniors with respiratory illnesses may be concerned to learn that the American Lung Association grades Port Washington’s location in Ozaukee County an “F” for ozone pollution, but it does have an “A” for particle pollution.
    • Senior Citizens who are valid Medicare card holders pay just $1.60 to ride the Ozaukee County Express to Milwaukee. This two-way bus service makes five trips into Milwaukee each weekday from Port Washington.
    • The Port Washington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Ascension Columbia St. Mary's Hospital Ozaukee, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Although seniors living in Port Washington don’t pay state income taxes on Social Security benefits, they are taxed on income from pensions, annuities, and distributions from IRAs and 401(k) plans. Wisconsin holds the No. 10 slot on the Kiplinger 2018 list of least-friendly states for retirees.
    • Port Washington receives an average of 43 inches of snowfall annually, and winter's low temperature in January averages 12 degrees. Seniors who suffer from cabin fever during long winters may find the climate in Port Washington unsuitable for their active lifestyles.
    • High housing costs in Port Washington result in an overall cost of living that’s about 17% higher than the national average. Seniors do pay about 10% less for groceries, but may end up spending the savings on healthcare, which is about 7% higher.
