teri370016: "The food was good, and everybody seems to enjoy it. Wellington Place was nice, but it was a bit old facility. I wasn’t impressed with some of the employees. There were a couple of them that were arguing and left the area, and when I was leaving, there were a whole bunch of them outside smoking. I just wasn’t impressed with the people."

Laura: "The day we were supposed to go to The Waterford at Wisconsin Rapids, the person who was supposed to be there that day unfortunately wasn't, and when we walked in, we were not met by anyone. We had to go and find someone, and they had to go and find someone to find us. They showed us the memory care area and assisted living, but I didn't see any residents at all except in the memory care part, which was kind of weird. It wasn't very good because there weren't people out and a... (read more)

Susan: "We toured Atrium Senior Living of Wisconsin Rapids at River Run. It seemed a little run-down, and it was difficult to get in touch with anyone. They had a dining room area, a meeting room, a very nice walking area outside, and a garage. There wasn't anything super special about the place."

Caring112614650: "My aunt is at Hilltop of Pepper. I have been going there for several years, and I like the place. The times I've been there, I would give them a five because they are friendly, and my aunt's room is beautiful. You can go outside, but you can't get out of there unless you go through the main door; it is a locked place. I have been there when she was eating, and she liked it although I didn't taste it myself. They asked if I'd like to eat, but I didn't have that much time to s... (read more)

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.

  • 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.
