    To serve this demographic's changing needs, the city has two assisted living facilities, with an additional 14 in surrounding communities. Assisted living facilities in the state of Wisconsin fall under one of four classifications: residential care apartment complexes (RCACs), community-based residential facilities (CBRFs), adult family homes and adult day care, all of which are licensed and certified by the Department of Health Services.
