A non-profit provider of health care and housing to seniors & the disabled

Wisconsin Illinois Senior Housing Inc. (WISH) is a non-profit organization made up of the finest long term care facilities in the upper Midwest. We take pride in the staff at all of our facilities who provide compassionate care to seniors every day in several different post-acute and senior home environments. 


WISH owns seven skilled nursing facilities (SNFs), 10 assisted livings communities (CBRFs), one independent living community (RCAC) and three home health agencies in WI and one SNF in Crystal Lake, IL, all of which offer various levels of post-acute and/or senior care.

Our skilled nursing facilities have a total of 507 licensed skilled nursing beds. WISH assisted living communities have between 14 and 90 beds and all offer a warm, friendly and home-like atmosphere.

Twenty percent of WISH SNF residents come for short-term therapy and skilled nursing services following a hospital stay with an average length of stay of 21 days. 

WISH facilities have strong management longevity with an average administrator length of service of eight years, and an average director of nursing length of service of seven years. 

Most of our facilities are located in Wisconsin, with one nursing home located in Crystal Lake, IL.
