Welcome to Wickshire Madison, a New Brand of Assisted Living

At Wickshire Senior Living, it’s not about age. It’s about life. We are a senior living community offering personalized Assisted Living. Nestled in a quiet residential area, our pet-friendly, spacious apartments range from cozy studios to more spacious two-bedroom suites. When you join the Wickshire family, you’ll experience all of the amenities of home and then some. Our associates are well-trained in providing services in all levels of wellness and care while finding ways to ensure each individual’s needs and wants are met. You can look forward to chef-prepared meals, engaging events and connecting with friends and neighbors, knowing support from a professional, caring staff is available whenever it’s needed.

What Sets Wickshire Assisted Living Apart?

It’s not always easy to know when it’s the right time to consider assisted living for your aging loved one. Every situation is unique and your loved one deserves the care and attention to address their needs; that is why we’ve built Wickshire Madison’s care to fit your specific needs, at multiple levels of assistance. We hold the strong belief that both assisted living and senior living programs should be engaging and foster a sense of community.

Seniors at Wickshire Madison are encouraged to participate in any number of programs and amenities that we offer. Happy residents are our singular goal, the Wise and Well program is our way of creating engaging activities and clubs for residents, family members, and associates. All community members will have a monthly opportunity to identify programs they want to lead or participate in and take action in order to bring those to life.

This is our intentional approach to whole-person wellness. Everyone has different needs, but at Wickshire we look at each person and ensure that they have opportunities to address five dimensions of wellness every week. We adjust our approach based on the person, not based on us. What happens when we are deliberate in this approach? Mental health is improved, the risk of falling is lowered, nutritional health is better, and happiness is greater – physical, emotional, social, spiritual, intellectual, the five dimensions of wellness.

Long Traditions of Luxurious and Compassionate Assisted Living in Madison, WI

At Wickshire we are inspired by people that believe in and support what it means to be a vibrant community – people with stories to tell and lessons to impart; people that value service and hard work; people that seek to foster deep and meaningful relationships. Raised within a large, close-knit family on Wickshire Street, our founder gained a deep appreciation for the value of dependable, compassionate care while serving as an active caregiver for his aging grandmother. Realizing that compassionate care is a basic human right, he wanted to cultivate an assisted living community for Madison’s aging Wisconsinites.

His sense of purpose grew through the realization that many people share a similar journey and a desire to provide a richness of experience in a community where care and respect matter most. This is what drives the culture and ethos of Wickshire Senior Living – to make life better by connecting people with purpose and community.

Types of Care

Assisted Living

Interested in a senior community that fosters independent living but provides care when you need it, should you need it? Assisted Living is the answer for seniors who appreciate help with some activities of daily living while still pursuing passions and hobbies in a community setting that has all the comforts of home.

Memory Care – What is it?

Memory care is a form of long-term, skilled nursing care intended specifically for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Memory care residents are supervised 24/7 and communities are designed to be calming and easily navigable and to minimize wandering behavior. Elmcroft Memory Care communities help residents who have memory issues stay safe and as independent and as happy as possible. With support for medication management, bathing and dressing, as well as specialty programs and care to improve quality of life and social engagement, Elmcroft Memory Care residents often experience improved physical, mental and social well-being.

Wickshire’s Memory Care facilities are comfortable, and elegant homes for loved ones with Alzheimer’s, dementia or other forms of memory loss. Our Memory Care communities feature a specialized program to train our staff on assisting residents with memory loss. Artistry of Moments is designed to provide the best possible environment with specialized support that makes an important difference to our residents. We provide care and guided activities that encourage wellness, engagement and as much independence as safely possible for each of our residents with memory loss – ensuring a great quality of life.

Is Assisted Living the same as Senior Living?

Simply put, assisted living communities give seniors personalized care in a residential setting. This arrangement is ideal for seniors whose health or well-being requires a higher level of support. Assisted living also provides a healthy lifestyle and social engagement through a variety of clubs and activities, some even led by our own residents!

The most common assisted living services offered include medication management and assistance with using the bathroom, dressing and grooming. Housekeeping, meals, laundry and transportation services, as well as social programs and activities, are typically included. Staff is available 24/7 to help with safety, care and support. Residents are encouraged to bring furniture and personal items to make their new home feel, well, like home.

Residents are assessed when they move in, so they can get an individualized service plan to meet specific needs and make their care truly personal. Some assisted living communities are also licensed to provide memory care. These will often have separate dining rooms and menus based on residents’ nutritional needs.

Assisted living is a great option for individuals who have difficulty with daily activities at home. Residents at Wickshire’s assisted living residents are free and encouraged to live an independent lifestyle, but also receive regular support for a range of daily activities ranging from cleaning to meal preparation. Housekeeping and maintenance services are often included in the monthly rental of an apartment, along with laundry services, utilities, transportation and meals. In addition to enjoying the peace of mind that comes from this maintenance-free lifestyle, residents can take advantage of a full calendar of events, activities, out-trips, and countless opportunities for social engagement. Additional care services, such as medication management or assistance taking a shower, are also readily available.

As befits the current generation of seniors, who are living longer than ever before, Wickshire’s assisted living residences are designed towards active seniors who wish to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible.

Our state of the art assisted living residences are proactive in providing progressive health care to residents as their needs change. With prevention in mind, wellness and exercise programs serve to keep residents healthy and vital. Able-bodied residents are free to be out and about, going to events or walking the grounds or surrounding neighborhood, while those with more debilitating mental or physical conditions are provided safe escort on group outings. Residents in assisted living generally have their own space with a great deal of privacy. In many cases, they are encouraged to bring their own furniture and belongings, so as to enjoy the comforts of home without the hassle of keeping up a house and yard. In contrast to the isolation seniors can experience when left in their own homes, assisted living offers a variety of activities to stimulate physical and cognitive function. Being around other seniors can lessen depression, which is known to cause significant cognitive declines. With so many places to choose from, there are a number of factors to consider when making the decision to transition a loved one into an assisted living residence. This guide examines how these residences are designed to provide care for senior residents.

Assisted living is the ideal care option for residents who would be unable to be alone at home for more than a few days at a time. If your loved one requires help with daily tasks like cooking, bathing, and getting dressed, assisted living may be the best care option. Senior living is an ideal care option for individuals who can still live independently but enjoy having access to assistance when needed. Independent living communities provide their residents with convenient access to dining, medical care, entertainment and more.
