Home Care Agencies in Milwaukee, WI

Home care, or in-home care, is a service which offers compassion and help to seniors who need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) and wish to remain in their homes. Levels of care vary according to need, and can include companionship, meal prep, cleaning, and transportation, and help with ADLs like bathing and dressing. Home care aides are trained to understand the nuances of senior care but generally aren’t licensed to provide medical services.

The median monthly cost of in-home care is around $5,196 in Milwaukee and about $4,767 within the state of Wisconsin, according to Genworth.

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

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.

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.

The 2-mile streetcar connects some of Milwaukee’s most popular neighborhoods, in addition to a more wide-ranging, ADA-accessible bus system.
