What to Consider About Memory Care in Mequon

Mequon, Wisconsin, has a large senior community that makes up nearly a quarter of the population of 24,000 residents. The city is situated in Ozaukee County, where roughly 1,800 people are living with dementia. To meet the needs of seniors with dementia and their family members, the county is taking strides toward becoming a dementia-friendly community.

In addition to various local resources, families whose loved ones have Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia have access to a variety of care options, including 18 memory care facilities. Two of these facilities are located in Mequon, and there are 16 more in surrounding cities. Memory care is generally provided in community-based residential facilities that offer dementia-related services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Mequon

  • In Wisconsin, Social Security and public pension income are not subject to state income tax, but all other types of retirement income are taxable. This may impact how much money can be put toward memory care in Mequon.
  • Overall living costs in Mequon are about 36 percent higher than the national average, predominantly due to the high cost of housing in the area. Healthcare expenses are about 7 percent higher here than in the country as a whole, which may drive up the cost of managing a chronic condition like dementia. 
  • Mequon's summers are warm and humid with highs near 80, and winters are very cold with lows in the teens. The area receives 44 inches of annual snowfall, nearly 20 inches more than the national average, which may impede winter travel for families visiting their loved ones in memory care.
  • The crime rate in Mequon is very low, which may provide peace of mind for families who are researching local memory care facilities. The city is rated safer than 73 percent of U.S. cities of all sizes, with crime rates that are notably lower than other cities of a similar size.
