    What to Consider About Memory Care in Racine County

    Racine County, which is located along Lake Michigan in the southeastern region of Wisconsin, is home to 196,000 people and has a senior community that makes up 16 percent of the population. In this county, it's projected that roughly one in 10 of seniors who receive Medicare benefits have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. 

    There are eight memory care facilities in Racine County, half of which are located in the city of Racine and the other of which are located in Waterford and Burlington. In this county, as in the rest of Wisconsin, memory care is generally provided in community-based residential facilities. These facilities are licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

    • In Racine County, seniors pay state income tax on income from retirement savings accounts and private pensions. Social Security benefits and money received from public pensions are not subject to state income tax. This may leave more money for memory care expenses here. 
    • Summers in Racine County are comfortable with highs in the low-80s, and the region receives an average of 190 sunny days annually. Winters are chilly and snowy, however, with lows near 10 degrees and roughly 37 inches of annual snowfall. As they're visiting memory care facilities, families may want to ask about features like individual climate control to ensure that loved ones are comfortable throughout the year. 
    • Racine County's overall crime rate is higher than state and national averages. On a 100-point scale, with a higher rate indicating more crime, the county's property crime rate is 40.4 and the violent crime rate is 42.3. This is compared to the respective national averages of 38.1 and 31.1. To keep residents safe, memory care facilities have security and surveillance systems.
