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

  • The climate in River Falls is pleasant for summertime outdoor leisure activities when average highs are in the low 80s. However, seniors will likely want to bundle up and stay indoors for the winter, which gets about 45 inches of snow and low temperatures in the single digits.

  • River Falls may be slightly less affordable for seniors than other parts of Wisconsin, depending on purchase habits. Groceries cost about 8 percent more than the state average, and the overall cost of living is 7 percent higher in River Falls. On the other hand, health care expenses are 7 percent lower in River Falls than the Wisconsin average, which might make it more attractive to seniors who have certain medical conditions.

  • Public transit is limited in River Falls, but seniors can take advantage of the "Shopping Van Service" provided by the Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) of Pierce County, as well as medical transportation and subsidized ride shares with a local taxi company.

  • The River Falls area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the River Falls Area Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 

  • 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. 

  • Seniors will find multiple opportunities to enjoy the arts and culture in River Falls, with attractions such as River Falls Community TheatreRiver Falls Community Arts Base, the historic Swinging Bridge, wineries and the Octagon House Museum.
