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

    • Seniors who receive income from government pensions or social security will keep more money in their wallet, as these incomes are not taxed in Wisconsin.

    • Seniors with health conditions that worsen in extreme temperatures will find Stoughton's cold winters challenging.
