Rosalia Gardens Groundbreaking For Expansion Begins This Afternoon

A groundbreaking ceremony was held at 3:30 p.m. on Monday, July 11, 2016 on the future site of the addition to Rosalia Gardens, Assisted Living Facility located on Flight Road in Antigo.

Representatives from Aspirus Langlade Hospital, the Religious Hospitallers of St. Joseph, Community Living Solutions and community members will gather to celebrate the 19,022 square-foot project that will provide 25 additional private rooms, dedicated Hospice rooms, expansion of the Adult Day Care as well as private and communal dining with several dining options and venues for residents to enjoy.  The design of the facility supports a social household model that promotes dignity, independence and respect. Additionally, the plan includes separate living room and den areas, a country kitchen and a spa that includes a hair salon. The building will be monitored and secured with a state of the art nurse call and wayfinding management system.  Construction of the new facility is scheduled for completion in October 2017.

The existing Rosalia Gardens space that includes 18 residences will be transitioned to Memory Care.

“We have carefully planned this project with the project architects, Community Living Solutions, input from our current residents and their families, and front line staff to incorporate the very latest in assisted living best practices and functional work space. Safety, freedom and resident choice are at the heart of our planning.” said Aspirus Langlade Hospital Executive Director Dave Schneider.

The decision to add additional space to the existing structure came after reviewing the results of a comprehensive feasibility study which determined there is growing need in our community.

Community Living Solutions has extensive experience in designing Assisted Living facilities in and around the state of Wisconsin.
