Washington County, WI – During the early construction of Cedar Community’s Elkhart Lake Campus, Carol Wise and her husband, Earl, drove through the site and always thought house number 40 was the best spot if the time ever came for them to move to independent living. That time came in 2010.
Having joined the waitlist, “just in case,” they received the call that three homes were available, and number 40 happened to be one of them. They made the selection and completed some cosmetic changes like painting and finishing out the basement.
Earl and Carol moved into their new home in April of 2011. In June 2012, Earl passed away from complications related to Alzheimer’s. “It’s a wonderful place and I feel so lucky to live here,” says Carol. “This campus is such a blessing to the people of Elkhart Lake. Friends who live on the lake and weren’t able to stay in their homes only had the option of senior housing in Sheboygan. Oftentimes, they would be cut off from their friends because they didn’t drive and the distance was just too far. This is nice and close and a beautiful setting.”
Carol appreciates the opportunity to meet new friends at Cedar Landing. In fact, she thought everyone should get to know each other and began writing a monthly resident newsletter.
