    What to Consider About Memory Care in Waukesha County

    Waukesha County is a large county with more than 400,000 residents, including a senior community that makes up about 18 percent of the population. It's projected that nearly 9 percent of seniors in this county who rely on Medicare benefits are living with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. 

    This dementia-capable county provides services and supports to those with dementia and is home to numerous businesses and organizations that have received training to be dementia-friendly. Additionally, the county has 22 memory care facilities, most of which are located in community-based residential facilities. These facilities are licensed and regulated by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.   

    • The American Lung Association reports that ozone pollution levels in Waukesha County are moderate, giving the county a C for this type of pollution. Particle pollution levels are very low, with the county receiving an A for 24-hour particle and a passing grade for annual particle pollution. 
    • The overall cost of living in Waukesha County is about 20 percent higher than state and national averages, and healthcare expenses are slightly higher here than elsewhere in the state and country. This may be a consideration for families and seniors who are looking for affordable memory care options.  
    • Waukesha County receives about 34 inches of rain and 42 inches of snow annually, versus the national medians of 39 inches of rain and 26 inches of snow. Year-round temperatures range between 13 degrees and 82 degrees, and residents enjoy 190 sunny days annually. Waukesha County's relatively cool climate may be good for seniors who are sensitive to heat. 
    • In Wisconsin, seniors do not pay state income tax on government pension income or Social Security benefits, even that which is subject to federal income tax. Private pension income and withdrawals from retirement savings accounts are fully taxable. This may affect how much can be budgeted toward memory care expenses in Waukesha County.
