EL development nearing 10th year

In 2006, Cedar Community broke ground with an inspirational “ground blessing” ceremony for a new senior living campus in the heart of the village of Elkhart Lake.

Dirt from Cedar Community’s main campus in West Bend was spread onto the ground at the 14-acre building site that would one year later offer 40 accessible homes for men and women age 55 and better, and two years later a 27-apartment assisted living. An extension of the nation’s 92nd largest not-for-profit continuum of care’s mission, “to model Christ’s love for humanity by creating life-enhancing relationships, services and environments,” more than 80 people now call Cedar Landing at Elkhart Lake home, with nearly 15 more who call it their preferred place to work.

The quality care, great dining, pond setting with central walking trails, park and gazebo, activities, outings, and social events including private parties, game-watching, educational seminars and other fun times in the Clubhouse have attracted residents from a dozen different states, not to mention Kiel, Plymouth, Howards Grove, Sheboygan, Sheboygan Falls, and points between.

Cedar Landing’s Winter Watchman program has made it possible for those who wish to travel south in the winter to relax and enjoy, knowing staff will watch for frozen pipes, set lamp timers and provide other services around their home while they are gone. Cedar Community’s exclusive “Passport to Travel” exchange program with 13 other communities throughout the country makes that travel all the more convenient and affordable.

Kathy Simpson, RN, Cedar Landing campus director, has been with Cedar Landing since November 2014 and said she enjoys working with families and residents in making their Cedar Landing experience special.
