Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Schofield
- Seniors who spend a lot of time outdoors, particularly those with existing lung diseases or cardiovascular disease, can breathe easy in Schofield. The American Lung Association gives Marathon County, where Schofield is located, an "A" for short-term particle pollution.
- Wisconsin does not impose state income tax on Social Security benefits or government pensions, meaning that seniors who rely solely on these forms of retirement income may have more money to put toward assisted living expenses in Schofield. All other forms of retirement income are fully taxed at the state level.
- The overall cost of living in Schofield is about 17% lower than the national average and 15% lower than the statewide average. The cost of housing is nearly half of the national average, which may result in lower assisted living expenses.

On a 100-point scale, the violent crime rate is 10.9, versus the national average of 22.7, and the property crime rate is 28.9, compared to the national average of 35.4. This may provide peace of mind for seniors who are researching local assisted living options.
