    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Waunakee

    "The Only Waunakee in the World," Waunakee is a village of nearly 14,000 residents located in Dane County, Wisconsin. Of this population, 13% are aged 65 and older, some of whom may need help with the activities of daily living offered at an assisted living residence.

    There are five of these facilities available in Waunakee and 15 more in nearby communities, all of which as licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Public Health Services. These facilities may be one of the following: adult day car, adult family home, community-based residential facilities (CBRFs) or residential care apartment complexes (RCACs).

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Waunakee

    • Despite its small size, Waunakee has a variety of arts and cultural attractions and events for seniors to enjoy throughout the year. Some local favorites include, shopping at local antique malls, summer concerts in the park and the annual Imagination Celebration.
    • Waunakee has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Madison.
    • Low crime rates can be reassuring for seniors living on their own in an assisted living facility. Measured on a scale from one to 100, Waunakee scores 10.1 for violent crime and 16.9 for property-related offenses, lower than the U.S. national averages of 22.7 and 35.4, respectively.
    • While the cost of living in Wisconsin tends to fall below the U.S. national average of 100, Waunakee's overall cost of living is higher, at 124.8. Grocery and health costs are low, though a large fluctuation is seen in terms of housing costs, which could impact how seniors budget for assisted living services.
    • Waunakee has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Waunakee Senior Center, an organization that provides advocacy, engaging programming, nutritious meals and transportation services for seniors in the community.
    • While summers are warm, harsh winter conditions could be a deterrent for seniors who enjoy spending time outdoors. Roughly 43 inches of snow falls each year, and temperatures often drop as low as 11 degrees.
