Always a nonprofit corporation created for the sole purpose of enhancing the lives of others, WISH began in 1989, under a different name, with a single community located in Crystal Lake, Illinois. Over the years, WISH purchased, was gifted, and constructed a variety of community types throughout Wisconsin and Illinois, as well as three home care agencies and a non-medical home care agency in Southern, Central, and Western Wisconsin.

Today, WISH proudly provides rehabilitation therapies, skilled nursing, hospice care, respite care, independent living, assisted living, memory support, and home health services to seniors across the Upper Midwest. It is our humble honor to serve our seniors and their families, and we look forward to continuing that service for many years to come.
