Eau Claire County is a rural area of northwestern Wisconsin with a growing population of 69,737 residents and a senior populace of just under 15%. In the county seat of Eau Claire, the city offers seniors access to high-quality palliative care at HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital and specialized dementia services at the Memory Care Center of Mayo Clinic Hospital Eau Claire. The area also helps seniors with cognitive challenges with opportunities to socialize and build support networks through monthly Memory Cafes offered through the Alzheimer’s Association at the Chippewa Valley Museum in Carson Park and St. John’s Lutheran Church.

In Eau Claire, the cost of memory care is among the lowest in Wisconsin, averaging $5,469 per month, a savings of $281 compared to the state median and $156 less than the national average. Dementia care facilities are tailored to provide personalized care using holistic programs and dementia-specific techniques to create a relaxing yet engaging environment for seniors with cognitive impairments and Alzheimer’s.
