What to Consider About Memory Care in Ozaukee County

Ozaukee County is located in the extreme southeastern region of Wisconsin and has over 88,000 residents, nearly one in five of whom are aged 65 and over. Alzheimer's disease and dementia rates are considerably lower in this county than in the United States as a whole. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services reports that a little over 8 percent of seniors in this county who have Medicare have dementia, versus the national average of 11.3 percent of seniors with Medicare.

In spite of its relatively limited percentage of seniors with dementia, Ozaukee County has six memory care facilities. Like many memory care facilities in the state, these facilities are located within community-based residential facilities, and they are licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.  

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • According to data published by the American Lung Association, Ozaukee County's ozone pollution levels are very high. This type of pollution, which is sometimes called "smog," can be dangerous for seniors with cardiovascular disease or respiratory illnesses. Short-term particle pollution levels here are very low, however, with this county being rated an A for this type of pollution. 
  • In Ozaukee County, seniors pay state income tax on income from retirement savings accounts and private pensions. Social Security income and public pensions are not taxed, which may allow seniors who draw income from these sources to have more money for memory care expenses. 
  • Ozaukee County is a relatively costly place to live, with living expenses coming in about 20 percent more expensive than state and national averages. Healthcare expenses are a bit higher than they are elsewhere in the state and about 7 percent higher than they are in the nation as a whole. The region's cost of living may be a consideration for families and seniors with tight memory care budgets. 
  • Ozaukee County is a safe place to live with property crime and violent crime rates that are well below the national average. This may make the county a good option for safety-minded families seeking local memory care options.
