    What to Consider About Memory Care in Whitewater

    The small city of Whitewater is home to less than 15,000 people with a senior community of a little more than 8 percent of the population. In Wisconsin, it's estimated that 110,000 seniors have Alzheimer's disease, a disease that affects as many as one in 10 seniors.

    While the community of Whitewater is relatively small, families have numerous memory care options for a loved one with Alzheimer's or dementia. The city has three memory care facilities, and there are five more in nearby Atkinson, Jefferson, Elkhorn and Janesville. While memory care facilities may be located in a dedicated building, they are generally situated within licensed community-based residential facilities that offer specialized services in a secured unit. 

    • In Wisconsin, income from Social Security and government pensions is not taxed at the state level, but all other forms of retirement income are subject to state income tax. This may affect how much money can be put into memory care in Whitewater.
    • Whitewater is an affordable city to live in, which may make it an attractive option for seniors and families with tight memory care budgets. Overall living costs are about 8 percent lower than the national median, and health care costs come in 13 percent below the nation's average.
    • Whitewater's summers are warm and humid with highs in the low 80s, and winters are chilly with January lows in the teens. The city gets an average of 37 inches of annual snowfall, versus the national average of 26 inches. This can pose a challenge for families who travel to this city to visit their loved ones in local memory care facilities.
    • Ozone pollution levels are high in Walworth County, with the county receiving an F for this type of pollution from the American Lung Association. This may be a consideration for families whose senior loved ones have respiratory or cardiovascular conditions that may be exacerbated by poor air quality.
