Milwaukee assisted living FAQ

Are assisted living facilities covered by Medicaid in Wisconsin?

Medicaid in Wisconsin may cover assisted living for qualified individuals. For more information, contact the appropriate agency.

What does senior living mean?

Do you have to qualify for assisted living in Milwaukee?

Yes, each type of facility has its own admission requirements. A community-based residential facility, for instance, is required to conduct an assessment of an individual’s needs, abilities and physical and mental condition. As you are touring different communities, ask about its admissions process for prospective residents.
