    What to Consider About Memory Care in Wisconsin Rapids

    More than 20 percent of residents in Wisconsin Rapids are seniors aged 65 or older and a substantial number require supportive care for a dementia-related illness such as Alzheimer's Disease, which an estimated 110,000 seniors in Wisconsin are affected by. 

    There are three memory care facilities in Wisconsin Rapids that provide such care to seniors with dementia. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services regulates these facilities throughout the state, as well as assisted living facilities, which are subject to a similar set of rules and regulations. Because of this, both levels of care are frequently provided in the same location. 

    • The Wisconsin Rapids area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those that specialize in brain health and dementia care such as Aspirus Riverview Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • Property crime is rampant in Wisconsin Rapids. Residents have a one in 25 chance of becoming the victim of a property crime, whereas those living in the average Wisconsin city have only a one in 55 chance. Memory care facilities have security procedures in place, but it's still important to inquire how facilities keep residents safe. 
    • In Wisconsin Rapids, winters are incredibly cold and snowy. The area has an annual snowfall amount that's nearly 10 inches more than the average U.S. city and in January, the average low temperature is only 7 degrees. Extreme weather conditions may present a risk to seniors with a tendency to wander, so it's important to make sure that memory care facilities have taken measures to prevent residents from wandering outdoors unsupervised. 
    • Families with limited funds to pay for memory care should find that Wisconsin Rapids is reasonably priced. The city's overall cost of living is nearly 20 percent below the national average and the cost of housing in the city is more than 40 percent below the national average.
