What to Consider About Memory Care in New Berlin

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services licenses memory care communities in New Berlin and recognizes them as community-based residential facilities. It requires all facilities to conduct background checks on prospective caregivers and provide a minimum level of dementia-specific training to staff. The department also sets basic standards for the scope of services facilities must provide.

  • New Berlin ranks among the more expensive places to live in Wisconsin, with local living costs tracking about 7% above national norms and 19% above the state’s cost of living. Fortunately, the state offers a range of waivers and financial assistance options for qualified seniors who need residential memory care services, helping to offset the higher cost of living.

The cold season runs slightly shorter, lasting from the end of November through the first week of March, and it has an average nighttime low of 15 degrees Fahrenheit. To keep residents comfortable, memory care communities often have unit-controlled thermostats, along with a variety of indoor and outdoor enrichment programs.

Local memory care residents benefit from access to about 2.5 cultural institutions per 10,000 people compared to 1.9 nationwide, many of which provide early-stage engagement opportunities.

Similarly, property crime occurs at a lower frequency here than in the state and nation at a rate of 7.71 incidents per 1,000 people, making this city a favorable option for memory care.
  • Froedert Community Hospital – New Berlin serves the region through inpatient, outpatient and emergency care services. It has a team of primary care physicians and geriatric specialists who administer age-specific screenings and medical support, including diagnoses and treatment for memory-related disorders.
  • Wisconsin doesn’t tax Social Security benefits and exempts a portion of public pension income. It also has a retirement income exclusion to reduce what seniors pay on income from other sources. This may promote affordability for memory care residents in New Berlin.
