Assisted Living in Appleton, Wisconsin

Appleton is situated just north of Lake Winnebago in east-central Wisconsin and has about 75,000 residents. Home to Lawrence University, this Midwestern city is commonly thought of as a college town with a young population, but about 13% of its residents are seniors. It has a low crime rate and a low cost of living, which may make it a good option for seniors seeking a community with a small-town atmosphere for their retirement years. This city is rich in cultural amenities and fosters lifelong learning with its many museums, including the unique History Museum at the Castle, which offers discounted membership for those aged 65 and over. There are also roughly two dozen golf courses in the city and a large library, which serves as the resource library for the Outagamie Waupaca Library System.    

In Appleton, seniors pay $4,473 per month on average for assisted living, though prices may vary widely depending on where a community is located and what services and amenities it provides.
