What to Consider About Assisted Living in Stoughton

In Stoughton, as in the rest of Wisconsin, assisted living facilities are called community-based residential facilities. These facilities are regulated by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, which sets minimum requirements for facilities’ sizes, the scope of services they must provide and staff training. The department also conducts criminal background checks on prospective employees and oversees site inspections.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Stoughton

 

  • In Stoughton, seniors pay state income taxes on most forms of retirement income at rates ranging from 3.54% to 7.65%. However, the state doesn’t tax Social Security benefits or government pensions, and it provides a retirement income exclusion for those aged 65 and over who meet income limits. This may impact how much money an individual can put toward local assisted living costs.
  • The cost of living in Stoughton is high compared to state and national norms, which may be a consideration for seniors considering assisted living in this city. It scores 103.4 on a 100-point index, compared to 89.9 statewide. This is mainly due to high housing costs, which seniors may avoid by choosing residential care.
  • Stoughton is home to Stoughton Hospital, which provides specialty services, general surgery and internal medicine. There are about 360 physicians per 100,000 people in this city compared to 210 nationally, and local health care costs come in about 6% below the national norm. Additionally, many assisted living facilities have registered nurses on staff who provide routine wellness checks and medication services.
  • Stoughton scores 9.1 on a 10-point comfort index versus the national score of 7.8, indicating generally pleasant weather throughout the year. Winters are cold, with residents seeing about 41 inches of snow and nighttime lows around 9 degrees Fahrenheit. The summer months are the most comfortable, with July high temperatures around 82 degrees Fahrenheit. This may appeal to prospective assisted living residents who enjoy experiencing distinct seasons.
  • Compared to the nation as a whole, Stoughton has low property and violent crime rates. On a 100-point index that gives higher scores to communities with more crime, the city scores 25 for property crime, about 10 points lower than the national score. The violent crime score is even lower at 13.4 versus 22.7 nationally. To further support seniors’ peace of mind, many local assisted living facilities have features such as surveillance cameras and high-security locks.
