What to Consider About Memory Care in Wood County

Wood County has about 73,000 residents and a large senior community that accounts for over 20 percent of the population. The area is served by the South Central Wisconsin Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. This organization provides support and informational resources for those with Alzheimer's disease and dementia, a group which makes up almost 11 percent of Wood County seniors who receive Medicare benefits. 

Wood County is home to three memory care facilities, all of which are located in the city of Wisconsin Rapids. These facilities are officially called community-based residential facilities, and they are licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.   

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • In Wisconsin, retirees do not pay state income tax on Social Security benefits or government pensions, meaning that those who rely solely on income from these sources only pay federal income tax. Withdrawals from retirement savings accounts and disbursements from private pensions are taxed at the state level, however, which may affect how much money can be put toward memory care services in Wood County. 
  • Wood County is a very affordable place to live with an overall cost of living that is about 15 percent below the state and national averages, which may make the county a good option for seniors and families with restrictive memory care budgets. Healthcare expenses, including doctor's office visits and hospital stays, cost a little less here than elsewhere in the state and country.  
  • Summers in Wood County are pleasant with lows around 80 degrees, but winters can be harsh with lows around 6 degrees. The county receives about 50 inches of snowfall annually, which is nearly double the national average. This may impede winter travel for families visiting loved ones in local memory care facilities. 
  • The overall crime rate in Wood County is roughly on par with the national average, with the violent crime rate coming in slightly higher than the national average and the property crime rate coming in a little lower. This may appeal to families researching memory care options for loved ones in this region.
