    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Wauwatosa

    Wauwatosa is located just four miles west of downtown Milwaukee and is home to a senior center, where adults aged 62 and over can attend afternoon movies, book discussions and day trips. In this city, the senior community accounts for almost 17 percent of the population of over 46,000 people. 

    Wauwatosa seniors have numerous assisted living options to choose from, including six in the city proper and over 50 more in nearby cities like Greendale and Elm Grove. In this city, as in all of the state, there are three different types of assisted living, including community-based residential facilities, residential care apartment complexes and adult family homes. These facilities are all licensed and regulated by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Wauwatosa

    • The Wauwatosa area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Wheaton Franciscan and Froedtert Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • In Milwaukee County, where Wauwatosa is located, the American Lung Association reports that 24-hour particle pollution levels are low but the level of ozone pollution, which may also be called smog, is very high. This may be a concern for seniors who have certain health conditions
    • Wauwatosa's summers are warm with relatively low humidity, and winters are very cold. Year-round temperatures in this city range between 16 and 81 degrees. The region receives about 40 inches of annual snowfall, which may be a consideration for seniors with mobility challenges.
    • Seniors in Wauwatosa do not pay state income tax on income from Social Security benefits or public pensions, but other types of retirement income are fully taxable. The state's sales tax rate is very low, however, which may offset other tax expenses. 
    • On a 100-point index, safety in Wauwatosa is rated 11, meaning that it is safer than 11 percent of U.S. cities of all sizes. When compared only to similarly sized communities, the city's crime rate is quite a bit higher than average. Seniors may want to seek out an assisted living facility that has security features like alarm systems and high-security locks. 
    • The cost of living in Wauwatosa is about 10 percent higher than the state and U.S. average, mainly due to the relatively high cost of housing. This may be a concern for retirees on fixed incomes.

    It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Wauwatosa and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Wauwatosa

    Seniors in Wauwatosa who meet income and asset guidelines may receive financial assistance for assisted living through the Medicaid State Plan as well as its waiver programs, including the Elderly and Physically Disabled 1915(c) Waiver program, the Community Options 1915(c) Waiver program and the Medicaid managed care 1915(b)(c) Family Care Waiver program. 

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Wisconsin page.

    More Ways to Pay for Assisted Living

    • Veterans Benefits
    • Life Insurance Policy
    • Long-Term Care Insurance
    • Reverse Mortgage
