Wisconsin, best known for its large German population, abundant cheese production and beer brewing, offers retirees a number of things to see and do. Residents can visit cultural attractions, such as the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Pabst Theater and the H.H. Bennett Studio. Residents can also take trips to many of Wisconsin's scenic attractions, such as the Wisconsin Deer Park, the Geneva Lake Shore Path and the shores of both Lake Michigan and Lake Superior.
Independent Living in Wisconsin Defined
Wisconsin independent living is ideal for those who would like to be close to a variety of attractions, but still have professional services to take advantage of, if they want to. Independent living differs significantly from memory care and assisted living communities. Independent living is for retirees who are in good health, both physically and mentally, and require no assistance in their daily routine. In an independent living facility, residents live in private residences and are completely independent. Seniors who need assistance with day-to-day personal tasks, such as bathing, dressing or grooming, would be better suited to an assisted living community. You can find Wisconsin assisted living communities in our Assisted Living category. Those who have memory loss problems, such as Alzheimer's or dementia, typically require 24-hour care and supervision from staff and would be more suited to a memory care community. You can find Wisconsin memory care facilities in our Memory Care category.
