Assisted Living Placements in Madison, Wisconsin
Since the mid-1980s, assisted living has been a popular residential care option for adults who need some help with the activities of daily living (ADLs) but wish to remain as independent as possible.
Today, more families in Madison, WI rely on assisted living services than ever before. In a report titled “The Implications for an Aging Population for Dane County Programs and Services,” researchers indicated that the 60+ population in Dane County had grown 194% between 1970 and 2014, which soars past the national average of 124% (Jones, 2017, p. 3-4). By 2020, 20.4% of Madison residents will be over the age of 65, and many will be seeking less expensive and more homelike alternatives to nursing homes.
Unfortunately, finding the right assisted living facility can be a daunting task.
Seniors housing can take many forms, including independent and assisted living communities, Alzheimer’s and dementia care homes, residential care homes (also known as board and care), and skilled nursing facilities. Each offer different levels of care, specialized services, and operating philosophies.
The sheer number of choices can be overwhelming. According to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ “State of Assisted Living” report, there were 129 adult day care centers; 331 residential care apartment complexes; 1597 community-based residential facilities; and 1995 adult family homes to choose from in 2017.
How do you plan to find the perfect fit? Geographical convenience is important, but it shouldn’t be the only factor in your decision.
Don’t stress–Always Best Care Madison can help you make an informed choice.
