What to Consider About Memory Care in Milwaukee County

Milwaukee County has over 950,000 residents, including a senior community that comprises over 13 percent of the population. According to data published by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, about 13 percent of seniors on Medicare here have Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Because dementia is a growing problem in Milwaukee County, the county is striving to create a dementia-capable community with resources and support for residents with dementia and their caregivers. 

Families seeking memory care services in Milwaukee County find more than a dozen local facilities that provide specialized care for those with dementia. In this county, as in the rest of Wisconsin, memory care services are provided within community-based residential facilities and are regulated by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • In Milwaukee County, the American Lung Association reports that short-term particle pollution levels are very low but ozone pollution levels are very high. Because air quality may affect the health of seniors, particularly those with cardiovascular or respiratory conditions, this may be a consideration for some families researching local memory care options.  
  • Milwaukee County seniors do not pay state income tax on income from Social Security benefits or public pensions, which may allow them to budget more money toward local memory care expenses. Other types of retirement income, including withdrawals from 401(k) accounts and disbursements from private pensions, are fully taxable.  
  • Milwaukee County's cost of living is slightly below state and national averages. Healthcare costs, including the cost of doctor's visits and hospital stays, are on par with the state average and a little higher than the national average. This may make this county a financially feasible option for budget-conscious families searching for memory care services. 
  • Over the course of a year, temperatures in Milwaukee County range between 15 degrees and 80 degrees, which is a little cooler than overall national average temperatures. The region receives about 46 inches of annual snowfall, versus the national average of 26 inches, which may make winter travel difficult for families visiting loved ones in local memory care facilities.
