What to Consider About Memory Care in Dunn County

According to the Alzheimer's Association, about 110,000 seniors in Wisconsin are living with Alzheimer's disease. Some of these seniors may live in Dunn County, which has a population of about 45,000 people, roughly 15 percent of whom are aged 65 and over. 

The county is served by the Alzheimer's and Dementia Alliance of Wisconsin, which provides informational resources and support for those who have been affected by dementia. In addition to this, there are two memory care facilities in the county, both of which are in the city of Menomonie.  These memory care facilities, like many in the state, are situated within community-based residential facilities and licensed through the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.  

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • In Dunn County, as in all of Wisconsin, seniors do not pay state income tax on their Social Security or public pension income, even that which is subject to federal income tax. Disbursements from private pensions and income from retirement savings accounts are taxed at the normal rate. This may affect how much money can be put toward the cost of memory care.
  • The air quality in the Dunn County region is very good, with the region tying for first place for cleanest metropolitan area in the country for both ozone and short-term particle pollution. The county's clean air may benefit seniors with respiratory or cardiovascular conditions. 
  • Dunn County's overall cost of living is about 5 percent lower than state and national averages. The affordable cost of housing and utilities in this county may result in lower memory care expenses. The cost of healthcare is a little higher than the national average but on par with the statewide average, which may be a consideration for families whose loved one has a chronic condition like Alzheimer's disease. 
  • Over the course of a year, temperatures in Dunn County range between 5 degrees and 82 degrees, and the region receives about 41 inches of annual snowfall. To keep residents comfortable during the cold winter months, many memory care facilities equip bedrooms with individual climate control.
