    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Wisconsin Rapids

    The Wisconsin River runs through the center of Wisconsin Rapids, and the fast-running waters gave the city its name. Over 20 percent of the city's population of 17,800 are aged 65 and over. Seniors in the area looking for help with daily activities can choose from 12 assisted living facilities in the city or one of the eight others located in the nearby communities of Plover, Stevens Point or Nekoosa. These facilities are licensed and regulated by Wisconsin's Bureau of Assisted Living.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Wisconsin Rapids

    • The cost of living in Wisconsin Rapids is almost 19% lower than the national average. The biggest factor in this difference is the price of housing, but seniors will still find that health care, groceries and transportation are less expensive than other parts of the state.

    • Seniors in Wisconsin Rapids have access to the Wood County Elderly and Disabled Transportation program, which offers door-to-door services to people over the age of 55 to medical appointments, shopping and other locations.

    • Seniors who enjoy arts and culture will find a number of attractions in Wisconsin Rapids. Some assisted living facilities may arrange visits to museums like the South Wood County Historical Museum or to see performances by the Wisconsin Rapids Community Theater. For seniors who like to create, the Central Wisconsin Cultural Center offers classes to the community.

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

    • Wisconsin Rapids' frigid winters can be challenging for seniors affected by extreme cold. The January low averages just 7 degrees, and the city gets 45 inches of snow annually. There are only 188 days of sunshine each year, which can keep people inside, but the mild summer temperatures of around 82 degrees are perfect for those who aren't big fans of the heat.

    • The crime rate in Wisconsin Rapids is higher than 95 percent of Wisconsin's other communities. The main factor of this high crime rate is property crime, which occurs at a rate of 40.76 incidents per 1,000 residents — more than double the state average. The violent crime rate, on the other hand, is very low at only 0.56 per 1,000 residents, well below the state average.
