Assisted Living in Appleton, Wisconsin

Appleton is home to nearly 76,000 people and a senior community that makes up a little over 15% of the population. It’s a member of the AARP Age-Friendly Network and is a popular retirement destination for older adults seeking affordability and access to public transportation and medical facilities. Its overall cost of living is 15% lower than the national average, and seniors don’t pay state income taxes on Social Security benefits. 

Seniors who need help with daily activities, such as grooming and bathing, but don’t require ongoing skilled nursing services may be good candidates for assisted living. Residents receive services, such as daily meals, housekeeping and transportation, and participate in recreational activities, such as games, movie afternoons and discussion groups. Some assisted living facilities are pet-friendly and have on-site amenities, such as dog parks, fitness centers and swimming pools. Monthly fees vary by facility, but on average, seniors in Appleton pay $5,138 per month for services. This is high compared to average fees in other cities across Wisconsin.  

This guide provides more information on how assisted living costs in Appleton compare to rates in other Wisconsin cities, along with your options for paying for services.
