What to Consider About Assisted Living in Stevens Point

 

The Division of Quality Assurance under the Wisconsin Department of Health Services oversees assisted living facilities throughout Wisconsin, including those in Stevens Point. It regulates and licenses the facilities to ensure they provide adequate care to keep residents safe.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Stevens Point

 

  • In Stevens Point, the cost of living is 20.1% lower than the national average and 10% lower than the Wisconsin average. Groceries and health care are a little higher than the overall cost of living, but they still come in lower than the Wisconsin and national averages.
  • The air quality in Stevens Point is a little higher than average at a 62 out of 100. For comparison, the national rating is 58. Better air quality gives seniors peace of mind when they enjoy the natural beauty of Stevens Point and the surrounding area. 
  • Seniors living in Stevens Point can feel a sense of security thanks to lower-than-average crime rates. Violent crime in Stevens Point is 12.3 on a 100-point scale, which is significantly lower than the national rate of 22.7. Property crimes are also lower at 28.7 compared to 35.4 for national property crimes. Assisted living communities give seniors even more security with 24/7 staffing and secure buildings.
  • While winters in Stevens Point get chilly and snowy, summers are relatively mild with summer highs averaging 82 degrees. That can make nature walks and other outdoor activities more enjoyable in the summer. Older adults living in assisted living communities have easy access to meals, entertainment, socialization and other amenities, so they don't have to trek out into the snowy, cold weather if they don't want to. 
  • Health care is easily accessible at multiple hospitals in the city. Aspirus Stevens Point Hospital features an emergency room plus multiple specialties, including cardiology, joint replacement, physical therapy and cancer care. Aspirus Plover Hospital is a smaller facility with emergency care. At Marshfield Medical Center-River Region Stevens Point Campus, seniors can access the 24/7 emergency department, inpatient therapy and several medical specialists.
