What to Consider About Assisted Living in Racine

Racine, Wisconsin is the fifth-largest city in the state with a population of nearly 78,000.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services licenses and regulates four types of assisted living facilities (ALF) in Racine and across the state. These programs are defined as facilities that supervise individuals with some level of need but who don't need 24-hour nursing care. The four types of ALFs include adult day care, adult family homes, community-based residential facilities and residential care apartment complexes.
