What to Consider About Memory Care in Barron County

More than 20 percent of Barron County's 45,000 residents are seniors aged 65 or older. A staggering number of seniors in the area are living with dementia disorders such as Alzheimer's Disease, which affects an estimated 110,000 residents throughout Wisconsin. 

There are two memory care facilities in Barron County that provide residential care and supportive services to seniors with dementia. These facilities are closely regulated by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and are subject to a similar set of regulations as assisted living facilities. As such, both levels of care are frequently provided in the same location throughout the state. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • The Barron County area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as Cumberland Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Wisconsin is relatively tax-friendly for retirees. The state doesn't tax public pensions or social security income and provides reasonable deductions for private income and pension withdrawals. Families who are relying on senior income to pay for memory care may benefit from the state's tax laws. 
  • The overall cost of living in Barron County is nearly 12 percent below the national average. These low costs are likely to be reflected in the rates charged by memory care facilities for both health services and room and board. Seniors and families with limited funding should find that living in Barron County is reasonably affordable. 
  • Barron County has incredibly harsh winters. The average annual snowfall is 53 inches — more than double the national average, and in January, the coldest month of the year, the average low temperature is only 1 degree. It's important to make sure that memory care facilities in the area have security systems in place to alert staff when seniors attempt to wander outdoors unsupervised, as this extreme weather can be dangerous when outdoors for prolonged periods of time. 

Paying for Memory Care in Barron County

Memory Care costs in Barron County start around $4,800 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of memory care is $5,694 per month.

It’s important to note that memory care rates in Barron County 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.
