    What to Consider About Memory Care in Winnebago County

    In Winnebago County, the senior community comprises almost 16 percent of the overall population of 170,000 residents. The rate of Alzheimer's disease and dementia in this county is a little lower than the national average, with about 10.8 percent of Medicare beneficiaries aged 65 and over living with this diagnosis versus the national average of 11.3 percent.  

    Winnebago County has five memory care facilities, including three in the city of Oshkosh, one in Appleton and one in Neenah. In this county, as in the rest of Wisconsin, memory care services are provided in community-based residential facilities, which are licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.  

    • Over the course of a year, temperatures in Winnebago County range between 10 degrees and 81 degrees. This is a little cooler than the national average of 23 degrees and 86 degrees. The region gets about 36 inches of snowfall a year, which is about 10 inches more than the nationwide average and may be a consideration for families whose senior loved ones have mobility difficulties. 
    • On a 100-point scale with a low score indicating low crime, Winnebago County's violent crime rate is 38.5 and the property crime rate is 38.7. This is compared to the respective national averages of 31.1 and 38.1. To keep residents and their belongings safe, memory care facilities in this county generally have security features like alarm systems and surveillance cameras.  
    • While the overall cost of living in Winnebago County is a little below state and national average, healthcare expenses are a little higher here than they are elsewhere in the state and nation. This may be a consideration for those with tight memory care budgets.
    • In Winnebago County, seniors do not pay state income tax on Social Security income or government pension income, which may allow for more money toward local memory care expenses. Other types of retirement income, including withdrawals from retirement savings accounts and private pension income, are fully taxable.
