What to Consider About Memory Care in Brookfield

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services licenses memory care facilities in Brookfield and enforces rules for staffing, care planning, and the scope of services facilities must provide. The department also publishes details on residents’ rights and conducts regular inspections to observe conditions and care practices.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Brookfield

  • Brookfield ranks among the more expensive places to live in the state and nation, scoring 107.3 on a 100-point cost of living index. Housing costs run particularly high here, which may negatively impact memory care costs. Fortunately, the state promotes affordable residential memory care by funding waivers that bring down costs for qualified individuals.
  • Summers in Brookfield bring warm, wet conditions, with temperatures ranging from 71 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit. The cold season has daytime highs of between 28 and 38 degrees Fahrenheit. To accommodate a variety of temperature preferences, memory care facilities often have indoor and outdoor activities and amenities, along with unit-controlled thermostats.
  • Compared to the state and nation, Brookfield’s Waukesha County ranks near the top for general health, fostering a therapeutic environment for memory care residents. About 60% of seniors get the annual flu shot, helping to slow the spread of influenza in memory care facilities, and the city has a primary care provider per 710 residents compared to 1,330 nationally.
  • In a given year, Brookfield reports around 560 crimes, or about 13 crimes per 1,000 people. It has one of the lowest violent crime rates in the state and nation, with residents having a 1 in 2,468 chance of experiencing this type of offense firsthand. Property crime occurs more often but still comes in lower than state and national norms at a rate of 12.89 incidents per 1,000 people. This makes the city a good option for seniors and families seeking a safe location to obtain memory care services.
  • Seniors don’t pay state income taxes on Social Security income, and they can reduce what they owe on other types of retirement income with the state’s retirement income exclusion. This may leave more money in the bank for memory care costs in Brookfield.

Paying for Memory Care in Brookfield

Note: Residential memory care is usually offered in assisted living facilities, and in general, memory care rates tend to be 20-30% higher than assisted living rates.

Memory care rates in Brookfield come in at around $7,729 per month.
