    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Sun Prairie

    Sun Prairie is a vibrant city 12 miles northeast of Madison and 66 miles west of Milwaukee with a growing population, of whom 11 percent are seniors 65 and over. This senior population is served by six assisted living facilities (ALFs) within city limits, all licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Health and Family Services and defined as Community Based Residential Facilities (CBRFs) that provide room and board to five or more residents requiring care below the intermediate nursing level. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Sun Prairie

    • Sun Prairie is a slightly cheaper alternative to living in Madison with an average cost of living nine percent higher than the U.S. median. Health care costs are a bit higher here, gaining a score of 122 compared to the U.S. average of 100. Grocery and transportation costs fare better and are just about even with national averages.  
    • Seniors in Sun Prairie won’t have their social security benefits taxed as Wisconsin is considered a retirement tax friendly state. Pensions are also not taxed, which leaves seniors more money in their budget to put towards assisted living.  

    •  Winters in Sun Prairie can be quite cold with temperatures in January dropping at times to ten degrees Fahrenheit. The city gets approximately 44 inches of snow per year, above the U.S. average of 26. Summers are more mild with average temperatures reaching around 82 degrees in July. 

    • Both violent and property crimes are lower than U.S. averages in Sun Prairie, coming in at 28 and 35.6 out of 100 respectively. The national medians are 31.1 and 38.1. The city is safer than 37 percent of U.S. cities in general.  
    • Seniors who do not drive may find it difficult to get around town as there are no public buses. However, Sun Prairie Taxi does offer a shared-ride taxi with a reduced fare program for income eligible seniors.

    • Seniors will have plenty to do in Sun Prairie with several local parks and golf clubs, the Historical Library & Museum and Angell Park Speedway. The Colonial Club, Sun Prairie’s senior activity center, also affords seniors opportunities for day trips to festivals, shopping, boat rides and concerts.
