What to Consider About Assisted Living in Woodruff

The small town of Woodruff was established in 1888 in Oneida County, Wisconsin. Today, Oneida County is home to over 35,00 people, with seniors over the age of 65 comprising more than a quarter of the total population. 

To support its local senior population, Woodruff has two assisted living facilities, and seniors who are willing to look out a little farther will find an additional three facilities to meet their needs. In Woodruff, 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. All types of facilities are licensed and regulated by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Bureau of Assisted Living, Division of Quality Assurance.
