Cornerstone Providing Enriching Improvements to Apple Creek Place, Appleton ,WI

Appleton, WI – April 13, 2022

For more than 15 years, Cornerstone Management Services has helped older adults across the Midwest add life to their years. Renovations are ongoing at their assisted living community at Apple Creek Place which will provide opportunities for more older adults to experience this way of life.

The renovated community will provide memory care and assisted living allowing for older adults to age in place. The building will have exceptional amenities including a salon, restaurant-style dining, multiple activity areas and game rooms, neighborhood living room areas, as well as outdoor green spaces and walking areas.

“Step into one of our communities, and you’ll feel the energy,” said Cornerstone Management CEO Mark Dickson. “We’re changing the way older adults think about their golden years. At any Cornerstone managed community, every day is a great day to be living life.”

The company currently serves seniors in 40 locations throughout Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Minnesota, New Jersey and Wisconsin and Apple Creek Place will be the perfect place to serve older adults who want to call the Fox Valley home.

“We’re in the business of helping people live their lives fully,” said Cornerstone Management COO Theressa West. “Apple Creek Place is a great place for us to do that. Our team is looking forward to bringing our unique approach to this community along with dozens of fulfilling jobs for people who love older adults.”
Apple Creek Place Appleton is set to open in Spring of 2022. The project is being renovated by Senior Housing Consultants and will be managed by Cornerstone Management Services.
