Assisted Living in Madison, Wisconsin

Madison, the capital of Wisconsin, is situated on the banks of Lake Mendota in the southeastern part of the state. The city is a short drive from Lake Michigan, giving seniors who enjoy boating, fishing or simply admiring the local wildlife plenty of options. Madison is close to other major cities, including Chicago, Green Bay and Milwaukee, and is home to the University of Wisconsin. Seniors can audit courses at the university or cheer on the Badgers football and basketball teams, and the walkable downtown area has plenty of shopping and dining destinations.

Madison has cold, snowy winters and warm, humid summers. The cost of living here is on par with the national average, and Wisconsin doesn’t levy a state tax on Social Security and some other types of retirement income. These two financial considerations may make seniors better able to afford assisted living. 

In Madison, retirees have 58 assisted living communities to choose from, and the average cost for assisted living is $3,950 per month. This average varies between facilities according to location and the amenities offered.
