Pathway to Living, a Chicago-based developer, owner and operator of senior living communities, has begun pre-leasing at Heartis Village of Brookfield, a 104-unit assisted living and memory support community in Brookfield, Wisconsin.

Situated on 10 acres at 16100 W. Greenfield Ave., about 12 miles west of Milwaukee, the community is scheduled to open in September 2019.

Heartis Village of Brookfield, which is licensed as a Community-Based Residential Facility (CBRF), will offer apartment-style assisted living units and a memory support neighborhood. The 70 assisted living apartments, which range in size from 351 to 917 square feet, include a mix of studio, one-bedroom/one-bath and two-bedroom/two-bath layouts, each with a kitchenette. In addition, there will be 34 ground-level memory support studios ranging in size from 293 to 306 feet.

As part of the new development, Caddis Healthcare gifted 2.9 acres of land from the original 9.7-acre site to the city of Brookfield to support the development of a public park.

Heartis Village of Brookfield residents also will enjoy a host of on-site amenities and services. For assisted living residents, these include two restaurants – the Grove Dining Room and Bistro West; entertainment spaces including the Ruby Isle Theatre; and the Sundara Salon and Spa. Other offerings include the Willaura Library, a demonstration kitchen, exercise and therapy gym, community room and two outdoor courtyards with walking paths.

Memory support residents will enjoy their own suite of amenities, including a country kitchen and dining room; sun room; salon; four seasons garden; living rooms, which are homelike spaces where they can relax, socialize and host guests; and a secure outdoor courtyard with a walking path and raised garden beds.

Residents of the memory support neighborhood also benefit from A Knew Day, Pathway to Living’s signature program that is proven to provide rehabilitation for the brain – a process called rementia – helping seniors with memory impairment become more engaged and communicative.

Other enriching programs for residents include Pathway to Living’s award-winning VIVA! philosophy, where social, educational and recreational programs are matched with residents’ interests, skills and desires. For example, ArtPATH teaches techniques used by famed artists, sculptors and curators while Lifelong Learning classes offer educational opportunities. Residents also will have opportunities to participate in field trips and adventures organized by Pathway to Living, such as visits to art galleries and museums as well as overnight camping trips.

Pathway’s signature programming, including VIVA! and A Knew Day, also will be offered to residents of Heartis Village North Shore, a 105-unit community in Glendale – about six miles north of downtown Milwaukee – that is scheduled to open this month. Located at 100 W. River Woods Parkway, it is situated on a 12-acre site that offers picturesque views of the adjacent Milwaukee River.

In total, Heartis Village North Shore will offer 71 assisted living units, including a mix of studio, one-bedroom/one-bath and two-bedroom/two-bath layouts, each with a kitchenette and a memory support neighborhood with 34 ground-level memory support studios. Like Heartis Village of Brookfield, the community will offer a variety of on-site amenities designed to promote wellness, independence and socialization.
