What to Consider About Memory Care in Chippewa County

More than 63,000 residents call Chippewa County, Wisconsin home and of those residents, more than 17 percent are seniors aged 65 or older. Many seniors in the county have been diagnosed with a form of dementia such as Alzheimer's Disease, which affects an estimated 110,000 seniors in Wisconsin. 

There are three memory care facilities in the Chippewa County area that provide residential care and support services to seniors with dementia. These facilities are often housed alongside assisted living facilities, as both types of facilities are required to follow the same set of rules and regulations. Memory care and assisted living facilities throughout Wisconsin are regulated by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • The Chippewa County area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as HSHS St. Joseph's Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
  • Wisconsin's tax laws are reasonably beneficial for retirees. While the state does tax private pensions and savings withdrawals, it doesn't tax public pension or social security benefits, which can make the state a great choice for families with limited budgets who are looking for memory care. 
  • Although the overall cost of living in Chippewa County is a little below the national average, healthcare costs in the area are nearly 10 percent higher than in the average U.S. county. For families of seniors who require frequent medical attention, Chippewa County may be a little too expensive.
  • Annual snowfall amounts in Chippewa County are nearly double the national average and in January, the coldest month of the year, the area has average low temperatures of only 3 degrees. For seniors who have a tendency to wander, these cold temperatures can pose a serious risk. It's important to talk about this with memory care facilities and to make sure there are measures in place to prevent seniors from wandering outdoors unsupervised.
