What to Consider About Assisted Living in Rice Lake

Rice Lake, Wisconsin, located in the Red Cedar River Valley, provides outdoor recreation, public services and entertainment within the rural northwest portion of the state. The town has a small population of almost 8,400 people, and about 20 percent of those residents are 65 or older. Accommodations for seniors include seven assisted living facilities, with five in Rice Lake and two in nearby Barron. 

In Rice Lake and throughout Wisconsin, assisted living communities are categorized as community-based residential facilities (CBRFs) or residential care adult complexes (RCACs). CBRFs serve residents who need up to three hours of weekly nursing care, while RCACs provide independent apartments within a supervised complex.

The summers are more pleasant, with an average July high of 80 degrees.

  • The overall cost of living is lower in Rice Lake than the state and national averages, primarily from lower housing prices. Seniors can expect to pay lower prices for groceries in Rice Lake; however, the costs of health care, transportation and utilities are higher than the national average.
