What to Consider About Memory Care in Germantown
An estimated 110,000 seniors in Wisconsin are living with Alzheimer's Disease or another form of dementia, some of whom call Germantown, a small village of nearly 20,000 residents, home. A little less than 15 percent of Germantown's population is aged 65 years or older, and those who've been diagnosed with dementia-related disorders can receive residential care in one of the area's eight memory care facilities. These facilities, which are officially under the same classification as assisted living facilities, are regulated throughout the state by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
- The Germantown area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as Froedtert Medical College of Wisconsin, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- The cost of living in Germantown is nearly 15 percent higher than the national average and this can partially be attributed to the cost of healthcare in the area, which is 8 percent higher. Families who are on a tight budget may find the cost of memory care in the area a bit too expensive.
Winters in Germantown are cold and snowy. The area gets nearly 20 inches more snow than the average U.S. city and has average low temperatures in January of only 12 degrees. It's a good idea to make sure that any memory care facility has systems in place to prevent residents from wandering outdoors.
- Germantown is safer than 55 percent of U.S. cities and has violent crime rates and property crime rates that sit well below state averages. Even so, when touring memory care facilities, it's best to inquire about security systems they may have in place and make sure residents are protected from crime.
