What to Consider About Memory Care in La Crosse County

La Crosse County, which is located in the extreme southwestern region of Wisconsin, is home to over 118,000 people and has a large senior community that makes up almost 16 percent of the population. In this county, it's projected that almost 12 percent of seniors who are Medicare beneficiaries have Alzheimer's disease or dementia. 

La Crosse County has two memory care facilities, including one in the city of La Crosse and one in Holmen. In Wisconsin, memory care services may be provided in a dedicated facility that only serves those with dementia, as is the case with the facility in Holmen. Alternately, dementia services may be provided in community-based residential facilities. Both types of facilities are regulated by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • In La Crosse County, seniors pay state income tax on private pension income and withdrawals from retirement savings accounts. Social Security benefits and income from public pensions are not taxed at the state level, however, which may let seniors who rely on these sources of income put more money towards memory care expenses.  
  • The air quality in La Crosse County is exceptional. The county received an A for both ozone pollution and 24-hour particle pollution, as well as a passing grade for annual particle pollution, from the American Lung Association. Seniors with respiratory illnesses or cardiovascular disease can breathe easy here.  
  • The overall cost of living in La Crosse County is a little lower than state and national averages, which may bring down the cost of memory care services. Healthcare expenses are about 10 percent higher than the state and national medians, however, resulting in more expensive doctor's office visits and hospital stays.  
  • Summers in La Crosse County are comfortable with July highs in the low-80s. Winters can be harsh, however, with January lows in the single digits and an average annual snowfall of 42 inches. To keep residents comfortable when temperatures are chilly, many memory care facilities have individual climate control in bedrooms.
