What to Consider About Memory Care in Sauk County

Sauk County is home to about 64,000 residents, nearly one in five of whom are aged 65 and over. Here, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services project that almost 9 percent of seniors who receive Medicare benefits are living with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. This is compared to the national average of 11.3 percent of senior Medicare beneficiaries.  

There are two memory care facilities in the Sauk County region, including one in the city of Reedsburg and one in Baraboo. In this county, as in the rest of Wisconsin, memory care services are generally provided within community-based residential facilities and are licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
