    What to Consider About Assisted Living in River Falls

    The scenic town of River Falls, Wisconsin, is situated around the 22-mile Kinnickinnic River. Residents of this small rural area live within close proximity to big-city attractions, as the Twin Cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis are only a half-hour away. About 15,500 people live in River Falls, and nearly 11 percent of that population are seniors 65 years or older.

    Seniors in need of assisted living services in River Falls can choose from several local options, including two facilities within the city and nine in surrounding communities, such as Hudson and Baldwin. Throughout Wisconsin, these facilities are designated as Residential Care Apartment Complexes (RCACs) or Community-Based Residential Facilities (CBRFs), depending on the level of care they provide.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in River Falls

Groceries cost about 8 percent more than the state average, and the overall cost of living is 7 percent higher in River Falls.

    • River Falls experiences a crime rate that is higher than 84 percent of cities in Wisconsin, but the rate is typical for a community of its size. Property crime in the area is more common than violent crime, so seniors may want to take extra security precautions to protect homes and their belongings.
