What to Consider About Memory Care in Green Bay

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ Division of Quality Assurance oversees the licensing for memory care and other types of long-term care facilities in Wisconsin. It also monitors these establishments to ensure they live up to the standards and regulations set out by the state, and they recommend fines or other actions when inconsistencies are found. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Green Bay

  • Green Bay is best for seniors who enjoy four seasons, as its summers are warm and winters are cold. The area sees about 20 more inches of snow than the national average. Fortunately, the city also has roughly 187 sunny days per year and summer highs that rarely exceed 80 degrees. Seniors living in memory care facilities won’t have to worry about clearing walkways or driving in bad weather, and the facilities are climate-controlled.
  • Easily accessible health care is important for seniors, which makes Green Bay a great place to live. It’s home to 27 physicians who specialize in treating Alzheimer’s disease, as well as four hospitals. Bellin Memorial Hospital and Aurora BayCare Medical Center, which has a comprehensive Alzheimer’s program, have consistently received high patient ratings.
  • Though crime rates in Green Bay are higher than 87% of the towns and cities in the state, that number is somewhat misleading. When compared to cities of equal size, it’s crime rate is lower. Seniors and their caregivers should feel fairly safe taking walks and participating in other outdoor activities. 
  • For senior veterans and war widows dealing with cognitive disorders, the Brown County Veterans’ Services is there to help. It educates seniors and their caregivers about what the U.S. Veterans’ Administration offers in terms of medical benefits to help them get the treatment they need. 
  • Green Bay consistently maintains a cost of living about 20% below the national average. Many residents praise the affordable economy, quality of life, variety of cultural activities and overall safety of living there.
  • Wisconsin offers some incentives for seniors, including tax-free Social Security and pension payments. In general, the tax rates are low compared to other states, but there are some inconsistencies. Sales tax is less than 5%, but property tax is among the highest in the U.S. Nevertheless, seniors relying primarily on Social Security or a government pension can still preserve their hard-earned money through the exemptions.
