HELEN'S HOUSE® Long-Term Care Households are an innovative residential alternative to large nursing homes and assisted living facilities that are designed to provide dignity, hope, and meaning to the four seniors that live here. Six locations in the Fox Cities - Appleton, Kaukauna, and Wrightstown.
Each HELEN'S HOUSE® Long-Term Care Household has a 1:4 care ratio and provides an environment complete with home cooked meals, deep friendships and a family atmosphere. While we offer this appealing true home experience, don't underestimate our caregiving capabilities. Our 1:4 care ratio enables our caregivers to care for seniors with significant hands on care needs- even those requiring total care. HELEN'S HOUSE® Long-Term Care Households create a place where our four beautiful seniors, including those with irreversible dementia / Alzheimer's can live a full life regardless of their health conditions and age in place. Our four residents thrive in homes and neighborhoods where they are not defined by their medical condition, but rather by who they are as individuals. We encourage our residents' autonomy, respect their need for physical and emotional privacy, and take their preferences, choices and status as an adult into consideration when providing care, supervision and activities.
The living environment is a beautiful, custom built four-bedroom home in an actual neighborhood that is staffed 24/7 by a team of caregivers. HELEN'S HOUSE® Long-Term Care Households provide a true nursing home or assisted living alternative to institutionalization for the residents of the Fox Cities.
Every HELEN'S HOUSE® Long-Term Care Household is a brand new, custom-built energy efficient 4-bedroom home located in an actual neighborhood. They are designed to blend into the fabric of the community - no signs out front and no secluded campus - and create an authentic living environment for its four residents with cookies in the oven, dinners around a kitchen table and meaningful relationships among the four seniors who live there.
The prospect of putting a loved one in an assisted living facility or a nursing home is one of the most harrowing decisions someone can face. You want your loved one to get the care they need, but it seems the options are all-too-often limited to large institutions or insufficient care at home. HELEN'S HOUSE® Long-Term Care Households are a much needed and innovative alternative to such institutional placement for seniors. A quality of life approach, each HELEN'S HOUSE® Long-Term Care Household enables its four seniors to age with dignity and respect in the communities they've known for their entire lives and in the familiarity and comfort of an actual home.
I've lived at HELEN'S HOUSE for 1 1/2 years. I moved from a larger facility where I lived for 6 years. HELEN'S HOUSE is so much better for me. Because there are only 4 residents the response time is so much faster. The caregivers can also spend much more time with you. The larger facilities are fine if you can walk, but not good at all if you are wheelchair bound. Thank goodness for HELEN'S HOUSE!

Thank you so much for the great care that Mom is receiving. Just yesterday we had Mom at her great granddaughter and great grandson's birthday party and she was telling everyone what a wonderful place she lives at and how caring and helpful everyone is. Mom was recommending HELEN'S HOUSE to everyone there:)

My 94-year-old aunt has made tremendous progress during the past two years as a resident at Helen’s House. The close interaction between my aunt and her caregivers at Helen’s House has positively impacted my aunt both socially and physically. Recuperating from hip surgery was not an easy piece for my aunt, but her living situation at Helen’s House has made her life cherished and meaningful. Thanks for making this living situation possible.

Our Mother was at Helen’s House for a year and a half. During her stay, Mom enjoyed the home-like atmosphere and the wonderful care she was given by all the staff.
We highly recommend Helen’s House for the care of your loved ones.

What a blessing it is to have Helen’s House. Finally we have Mom in a caring, more personal, home setting under the eyes of wonderful staff. We give it 5 stars and more!

The individual care given to my mother and others in this Home, not a facility, is a blessing. What more could a family ask for, then come into a home, share meals, trips, fun times and all so with a personal touch. I just wish everyone could experience this first hand.
Thank you Christopher and the caregivers.

My mother has been with Helen’s House for the past year. Prior to HELEN'S HOUSE she was in a nursing home for about a 1 1/2 years. I find that HELEN'S HOUSE is a more “homey” environment. I know that she is being taken well care of. The staff is wonderful with her. They take the time to really know and care about their residents. I enjoy getting to know the employees as well as the other residents. I am thankful everyday that my mom has a place like this to call home.
