The 8 Best Assisted Living Facilities in Milwaukee, WI
Lake Michigan keeps Milwaukee comfortable for local seniors during the hotter weeks of late spring and early summer. During the day, cool breezes blow inland and keep the local climate stable, while the effect reverses at night and warms up the waterfront. Seniors who go out for a stroll between March and July can thus enjoy some of the Midwest’s most stable temperatures from noon to almost midnight. Milwaukee is a welcoming place for seniors in other ways, such as the high-tier medical system at institutions such as Aurora Sinai Medical Center, which has both a dedicated senior health department and a stroke unit for emergency care near downtown Milwaukee.
Milwaukee was an infamous “cool-off” town for Chicago gangsters during Prohibition, and today several old speakeasies are still open, including a cigar bar once owned by Al Capone, who has a street named after him in town. Seniors also get a discount at the Chudnow Museum of Yesteryear on N. 11th St., as well as on the scheduled routes of the Milwaukee County Transit System.
Seniors in Milwaukee pay an average of $4,264 a month for assisted living, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. This is a little less than the $4,300 average for the state of Wisconsin, but still more than the $4,000 average nationwide.
