    What to Consider About Memory Care in Portage County

    Portage County, which is located in the northeastern region of Wisconsin, has a large senior community that accounts for over 16 percent of the 70,000-person population. In this county, it's estimated that nearly 9 percent of seniors who receive Medicare benefits have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. The county offers an array of resources for seniors with dementia and their caregivers, including respite care and training opportunities.

    Families seeking local memory care options for their loved one find six memory care facilities in Portage County, all of which are located in the city of Stevens Point. Generally, memory care services in this county are provided within community-based residential facilities and are licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.  

    • Seniors in Portage County do not pay state income tax on their Social Security benefits, and income from public pensions is fully exempt from taxes. Other sources of retirement income, including private pensions and withdrawals from retirement savings accounts, are fully taxable. This may affect how much money can be put toward memory care here.  
    • Portage County's cost of living is about 9 percent lower than the national average and 7 percent lower than the state average, which may result in lower memory care expenses. Healthcare is also more affordable here, coming in slightly below state and national averages. This county may be a good option for families and seniors with restrictive memory care budgets. 
    • Violent crime is slightly more common here than in the nation as a whole, but property crime rates are below the national average. To keep residents safe, memory care facilities often install security components like surveillance cameras, high-security locks and alarm systems. 
    • Over the course of a year, average temperatures in Portage County range between 7 degrees and 80 degrees, which is several degrees cooler than the national average. The region gets an average of 46 inches of annual snowfall, which may be a consideration for families whose senior loved one has mobility challenges.
