What to Consider About Memory Care in New Richmond
New Richmond is home to nearly 9,000 residents, 12 percent of whom are seniors aged 65 or older. Many seniors in the area have been diagnosed with some form of dementia such as Huntington's Disease or Alzheimer's Disease, which affects an estimated 110,000 seniors throughout Wisconsin.
Seniors with dementia who require specialized support and assistance with their daily activities can receive such care in one of the area's two memory care facilities. These facilities are subject to a similar set of rules and regulations as assisted living facilities and as such, both levels of care fall under the same classification throughout the state. All assisted living and memory care facilities in Wisconsin are monitored by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
- The New Richmond area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as Westfields Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- Wisconsin is a moderately tax-friendly state for retirees. Public pensions and social security income aren't taxed; however, other forms of retirement income including savings withdrawals and private pensions are fully taxed at the state level. Families of seniors with limited budgets for memory care should carefully consider how much of the senior's income will be deducted before making a commitment to a memory care facility.
- The overall cost of living in New Richmond is more than 12 percent above that of the average U.S. city, which is another important factor that should be considered by families with limited income. For some seniors, it may be best to consider memory care facilities in less expensive parts of Wisconsin.
- Crime rates in New Richmond are quite a bit lower than state averages. For every 1,000 residents in the city, only 2.01 violent crimes and 13.61 property crimes occur each year. By comparison, the average city in Wisconsin has 3.2 violent crimes and 18.08 property crimes each year. Even so, it's a good idea to discuss security with memory care facilities to ensure that there are systems in place to protect residents from crime.
