How to choose an assisted living facility in Beaver Dam

Before choosing an assisted living facility in the Beaver Dam area, you should visit several facilities to determine which is the most compatible with your needs and budget. All assisted living facilities in Wisconsin — adult day cares, adult family homes, community-based residential facilities and residential care apartment complexes — must be licensed, certified or registered with the state; you can verify a facility’s status with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.

When visiting an assisted living facility in southern Wisconsin, consider these factors:

  • Levels of care: Assisted living facilities provide various levels of care. These can include basic care, assistance with daily living activities, part-time skilled nursing care and memory care. All assisted living facilities in Wisconsin must provide five basic services: health monitoring, assistance with medications, information and referral services, leisure time services and personal care services. Evaluate a facility based not just on your a loved one’s current needs, but possible future needs, as well.
  • Staff: Take note of the staff when you tour an assisted living facility. Do they seem to know the residents and interact in a friendly way with them? What is the staff-to-resident ratio? Are you able to meet with directors and coordinators (medical, nursing, activities, housekeeping, dining, etc.)?
  • Amenities: At assisted living facilities, amenities can include things such as a store, bank, spa, gym, library and beauty salon. Each facility has a different assortment of amenities, so make sure to ask for a full list and see them in person.
  • Location: Location matters when you’re deciding on an assisted living facility in Beaver Dam. Many residents and their loved ones prefer a location close to family and friends, with access to places such as restaurants and shopping. Choose one that has a hospital nearby in case of an emergency.

Beaver Dam assisted living FAQ

Who qualifies for assisted living in Beaver Dam?

Admissions requirements depend on the type of assisted living facility. To be admitted to a community-based residential facility, for example, you must not need more than three hours of nursing care per week, and you have to undergo an assessment for needs, abilities, physical condition and mental condition, among other requirements.

Can assisted living kick you out?

Yes. For instance, a community-based residential facility, one type of assisted living facility in Wisconsin, can involuntarily discharge a resident for nonpayment or needing care that is beyond the facility’s license classification, or if the facility determines there is imminent risk of serious harm to the health or safety of the resident, other residents or staff, according to Wisconsin law.
