    Assisted Living CBRF v. RCAC

    February 1, 2024

    Moving a loved one into an Assisted Living Community can be a big responsibility.  There are so many to choose from and they all offer different amenities.  One thing people don't understand is that there are two types of Assisted Living Communities in Wisconsin.  There are RCAC's (Residential Care Apartment Complex) and CBRF (Community Based Residential Facilities).  One offers more services than the other and allows a love one to age in place longer.  1. **Dignity in Care**: Dignity is at the heart of everything we do. We believe in treating each resident with the utmost respect, honoring their individuality, preferences, and autonomy at all times. Our team members are carefully selected for their empathy, integrity, and commitment to upholding the dignity of every individual they serve.
