A mission of caring


The mission of Residences on Forrest Lane and our parent company, Wisconsin Illinois Senior Housing Inc., is to serve elderly and disabled individuals by providing quality housing, healthcare and other services to enhance the lives of those we serve. We are located on the same campus as our sister skilled nursing community, Montello Care Center.


As a 501c3 non-profit our main goal is service, not making a profit. Any profit realized above our operating expenses is reinvested in our facilities. Because of our mission of high-quality service, we rely partially on financial gifts to help meet all of our financial needs. Although we accept Medicaid, our expenses for quality care and housing far exceed those funds. If you are interested in supporting our mission to positively impact the lives of seniors, please consider a tax-deductible cash donation to Residences on Forest Lane. Use the easy, secure donation button to give online, or contact our Administrator.  


All donations are tax deductible and funds received are used to help improve our building, help improve or increase the services we offer, and help provide new programs and equipment to enrich the lives of our residents. Thank you for your continued support!


Wisconsin Illinois Senior Housing, Inc. (WISH) is a non-profit corporation and began in 1989 with the purpose of operating skilled nursing homes, assisted livings, and other senior housing entities so that quality housing and healthcare would be available to seniors. Today, WISH owns 18 facilities in Wisconsin and northern Illinois, and a Wisconsin home health agency.

All WISH facilities are managed by Carriage Healthcare Co. Inc., a seasoned healthcare management company with proven policies and procedures that help facilities run at their best. Together CHC and WISH share the philosophy of meeting the needs of our elder population with quality care and housing options. Carriage brings vast management experience and provides the latest tools and technology, policies and staffing resources, while keeping up with today's complicated mandates that affect senior care.

No matter which WISH facility you visit, you will find the same caring staff, continuity of services and a quality facility dedicated to serving seniors.
