What to Consider About Memory Care in Burlington

The small city of Burlington, Wisconsin, has nearly 11,000 residents, about 15 percent of whom are comprised of seniors age 65 and over. Of Wisconsin's entire senior community of roughly 957,000 people, about 110,000 seniors have Alzheimer's disease. As the population ages, this number is expected to increase by 18 percent by 2025.

To support local seniors with dementia, Burlington has two memory care facilities, and there are an additional two in the nearby city of Waterford. In Burlington, as in all of Wisconsin, memory care services may be offered in a dedicated facility that focuses solely on dementia care. Alternately, they may be provided in licensed community-based residential facilities that offer specialized services in a specialized unit. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Burlington

  • Income from Social Security and government pensions is tax-exempt, but all other forms of retirement income are taxable. The amount of money a senior may put in their memory care budget may depend on their sources of income, making it a good idea to speak with a tax professional regarding Wisconsin's income tax laws.
  • The Burlington area is home to world-class medical facilities, such as Aurora Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • On a 100-point scale, with a lower number representing a lower crime rate, Burlington's property crime rate is 35.3. This is lower than the state average of 36.3 and the national average of 38.1. The violent crime rate is 22.9, compared to the regional average of 28.9, the state average of 26.4 and the national average of 31.1. This may make Burlington a good choice for families who are researching memory care facilities for their loved ones. 
  • Burlington's winters are dry, windy and cold, with lows in the teens and an average of 37 inches of annual snowfall. Families should ensure that they choose a memory care facility that takes proper precautions to prevent residents from wandering, especially in extremely cold temperatures. Summers are fairly pleasant, however, with highs in the low-80s, which may appeal to seniors who enjoy relaxing outdoors.

Paying for Memory Care in Burlington

Memory Care costs in Burlington start around $6,365 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of memory care is $5,694 per month.
