What to Consider About Memory Care in Janesville

In Janesville, memory care facilities comply with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ licensing standards for community-based residential facilities. The department promotes a high standard of care for all residents through minimum requirements for care planning, move-in and move-out procedures, staff training and building security. It also publishes comprehensive information on residents’ rights.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Janesville

  • Because Janesville resides in dementia-friendly Rock County, residents have access to special memory screening services and dementia support and education through the Aging and Disability Resource Center. Additionally, the ADRC hosts virtual and in-person support groups, including one that meets monthly in Janesville.
  • The American Lung Association records an average of 3 days annually in which ozone pollution levels are high enough to impact vulnerable seniors’ health and comfort, and it assigns the region a C for this type of pollution. Fortunately, many memory care facilities have indoor activities throughout the year to accommodate seniors with heart or lung conditions that may be exacerbated by poor air quality.
  • Janesville’s continental climate brings seasonal temperatures ranging from lows of 11 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter to highs of 83 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer. The city gets about 34 inches of snow and 36 inches of rain annually, versus 28 inches of snow and 38 inches of rain nationally, and skies are sunny 185 days out of the year. To keep residents safe and prevent wandering in snowy conditions, memory care facilities often have features such as secured exits and enclosed courtyards.
  • Two hospitals reside in Janesville, including SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital Janesville and Mercy Hospital and Trauma Center – Janesville. Through these respected medical facilities, seniors access a variety of primary and specialty services, including rehabilitative services, memory screenings and dementia treatment.
  • Wisconsin’s income tax rate ranges from 3.54% to 7.65%, but the state exempts some forms of retirement income, including Social Security benefits and government pensions. The state also offers a retirement income exclusion of up to $5,000 for those who meet certain income requirements. This may help some seniors afford memory care services in Janesville.
