Care Homes in Milwaukee, WI

Residential care homes — sometimes called care homes, board and care homes, group homes, or personal care homes — are houses in residential neighborhoods that are adapted, equipped, and staffed to care for a small number of residents, usually 10 or less. Similar to assisted living but in a smaller, more residential setting, these homes provide supervision, organized events, and assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). This means care homes can help with everyday routines but typically do not provide 24-hour skilled nursing assistance.

Cost of Care Homes in Milwaukee, WI

The median monthly cost for a care home in Milwaukee is about $6,300 within the metropolitan area. In the state of Wisconsin overall, the median monthly cost for a room in a care home is about $2,887. However, the cost of living in a care home depends largely on location. Since the homes are private residences, costs are tied to real estate value and therefore may vary significantly.

A Place for Mom’s local Senior Living Advisors can help you find the right residential care home in Milwaukee for you or your loved one.

Rockwell Automation, Aurora Sinai Medical Center, and Roundy’s — a subsidy of Kroger — have established themselves as leading employers. ManpowerGroup Global, a fortune 500 company and the third-largest staffing agency in the nation, is headquartered in Milwaukee.

Milwaukee is a majority-minority area with a rich, diverse cultural makeup. The city has a local chapter of the NAACP, as well as an involved and passionate Black Chamber of Commerce. Each year, the Bronzeville Week celebration pays homage to Black businesses and encourages community support. The Wisconsin Black Historical Society Museum chronicles the history and accomplishments of the city’s pivotal, Black leaders.

Milwaukee is considered very friendly to members of the LGBTQ+ community. This means that members of the community are accepted by the general public and can actively participate in public life without fear of bigotry. The Advocate named Milwaukee “the most underappreciated gay Mecca in the U.S.,” backed by resources like the Milwaukee LGBT Community Center and Sanctuary Restaurants, a long list of eateries focused on creating a safe, affirming atmosphere. The Milwaukee LGBT Film/Video Festival spans four days each year, while PrideFest packs three days of comedy, discussion, and rousing drag performances.

Arts, Culture, Entertainment, and Recreation

Milwaukee has been a leader in the craft beer and brewing industry since the 19th century. This tradition continues today, with both major beer companies — like Miller — and clusters of lively, independent gastropubs contributing to the beer lover’s paradise. Lakefront Brewery, one of the premiere producers of organic and gluten-free beer, presents waterfront views, in contrast to the landlocked, cobblestone locale of the Historic Pabst Brewery. This versatility transcends across Milwaukee’s many breweries, making for an eclectic tour.

Milwaukee derives much of its charm from its natural, lakeshore surroundings. The Milwaukee RiverWalk District, the city’s main pedestrian walkway, combines these gorgeous views with quirky, local commerce. The North Point Lighthouse is an iconic staple of Milwaukee architecture and sightseeing, added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. Visitors can oversee a grand, panoramic expanse, as well as explore a maritime museum. Lake Park, Boerner Botanical Gardens, Mequon Nature Preserve, and many other wildlife havens ensure nature enthusiasts plenty to explore. The city has a notable, 185-acre Audubon Nature Center that strives to provide meaningful interaction with the environment.

Additionally, the city flaunts a renowned museum scene. The Milwaukee Art museum contains 31,000 works, with a focus on German Expressionism, Haitian art, and American art. Milwaukee Public Museum enriches visitors’ historical knowledge, displaying the largest-known dinosaur skull, and permanent exhibitions on Africa, Asia, Europe, the Arctic, Middle America, and the Costa Rican Rainforest. Among the city’s more off-the-wall treasures are the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts, and the Harley-Davidson Museum.

Transportation

Many people living in Milwaukee count walking among their primary modes of transportation, as the city ranks 13th most walkable in the nation. The 2-mile streetcar connects some of Milwaukee’s most popular neighborhoods, in addition to a more wide-ranging, ADA-accessible bus system. The Milwaukee Intermodal Station has 14 daily Amtrak departures, making for easy getaways to cities like Chicago and Minneapolis.
