How We Chose the Best Assisted Living in Milwaukee

Since there are dozens of great assisted living communities in Milwaukee, our team of experts spent over 50 hours researching facilities to narrow down the list to our top picks. We used the following factors to evaluate and select the best assisted living communities the city has to offer:

  • Cost: Cost can vary significantly across communities, but we looked for assisted living communities that justified their costs by delivering real value. We also considered factors such as entrance fees and what care was included in base fees. Costs listed come from each community’s website or conversations with staff.
  • Available care: We looked at the types of care that each community offered, including how easily residents can access medical appointments. We also considered whether a community is able to meet residents’ increasing and evolving care needs.
  • Amenities: Amenities can help residents lead more fulfilling lives, and some amenities, like pools and gyms, can contribute to resident health. We looked for communities that provided plenty of amenities to support an engaging and active lifestyle.
  • Location: The community’s location in Milwaukee can impact not only the community’s environment, but also the medical and entertainment resources available to residents. We considered how each community’s location would impact resident life.
  • Staff: Staff plays a key role in resident safety and wellness. We looked for communities that hire talented, knowledgeable staff, and that maintain an appropriate staff-to-resident ratio.
  • Reviews: While ranking each community, we read dozens of reviews to get plenty of input and feedback about life at each community. We looked for common themes in these reviews and shared them in our write-up.
