    What to Consider About Memory Care in Oshkosh

    The city of Oshkosh is home to 67,000 people and a senior community that comprises over 13 percent of the population. According to the Alzheimer's Association, which reports that 110,000 seniors in Wisconsin have Alzheimer's disease, one in 10 adults over the age of 65 will be diagnosed with Alzheimer's. 

    Local families whose loved ones have dementia have access to a variety of local supports and services via the Alzheimer's Association local chapter. In addition to this, the area has four memory care facilities, with three in the city proper and one located in nearby Neenah. Memory care is generally provided within community-based residential facilities and is regulated by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Bureau of Assisted Living, Division of Quality Assurance.

    • Summers in Oshkosh are warm with highs in the low-80s and muggy conditions about 30 percent of the time. Winters are dry, windy and cold, with lows around 12 degrees and an average of 35 inches of annual snowfall. Seniors who enjoy outdoor hobbies may find Oshkosh's climate unpleasant.
    • The combined property and crime rate in Oshkosh is higher than 85 percent of Wisconsin cities, but it's lower than the average crime rate of comparably sized U.S. cities. Residents have a one in 40 chance of being the victim of any type of crime. As they tour memory care facilities, families may want to ask staff members about the measures taken to keep residents safe.
