    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Schofield

    Schofield is a small city in north-central Wisconsin with several parks, including Radtke Park, where visitors can enjoy a picnic or spend an afternoon fishing. The city is home to just over 2,000 people. The median age of Schofield's residents is 40.5, and about 15.5% of residents are 65 and over.  

    In the Schofield area, as in all of Wisconsin, assisted living facilities are classified as community-based residential facilities, residential care apartment complexes and adult family homes, depending on the type of setting provided to residents. All facilities are licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services. To accommodate its aging population, Schofield has two assisted living facilities, and there are 15 more nearby. 

    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.  
    • Schofield's overall crime rate is considerably lower than the national average, and its violent crime rate is well below national, state and regional averages. 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.  
    • The Schofield area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Weston.
    • Seniors who prefer cooler weather may enjoy Schofield's climate. Year-round temperatures in this city range between 4 degrees and 80 degrees, compared to the national average range of 22 to 86 degrees. The region gets about 56 inches of snow annually, which may make traveling a challenge for those who attend frequent medical appointments.
