Home to an estimated 12,892 seniors, Kenosha is Wisconsin’s fourth-largest city with a total population of 99,444. The cost of living in this waterfront city is relatively low, and its weather is considered more pleasant than most places in the state, especially in the summer. For medical care, the city’s seniors have several options, including Aurora Medical Center – Kenosha, a certified geriatric emergency care facility that was previously rated as one of the top 100 hospitals in the country.
Since Kenosha’s $9,277 average monthly cost of nursing home care is above the median costs for the state and the country, seniors who don’t need to be under the constant supervision of doctors and nurses may want to look into assisted living or home care. In the city’s nursing homes, seniors can receive a wider range of services, such as personal care, medication management, injections, wound care, diabetes management and assistance with daily living activities.
The costs of senior care in Kenosha are covered in this guide in addition to programs that may help seniors pay for care at a nursing home or delay moving into one. Programs that can help seniors get the most out of their time in a nursing facility are included as well.
