Evergreen Announces Priority Program
Evergreen's new Priority Program allows interested parties the opportunity to receive the latest information about the new upscale independent apartments being planned for construction. Attached to the main Evergreen building, these spacious apartments will allow convenient access to campus amenities and programs.
A fully-refundable, no-risk deposit is required to join the Priority Program and receive a unique priority number. When apartment styles, floor plans, and locations are finalized, members of the Priority Program will be called in order to select an apartment. If at any time a member chooses to be removed from the program, the full deposit will be refunded.
Call Theresa at 920-237-2128 to schedule a personal meeting with a Marketing Team member or to reserve a spot at an upcoming informational luncheon to learn more about the Priority Program.
Aging in place may seem like a desirable option. Many people plan ahead and build their homes to be senior-friendly – one-level living, grab bars in all the right places, wide hallways and doorways, etc. They may plan to depend on family or hire in-home care when they need assistance. But how do they plan to prevent isolation? Will a couple of family members and one or two caregivers be enough, day after day, month after month? Read about isolation and how it can unexpectedly creep into a person's life. Learn another option for preventing or overcoming it.
Residents build one for Evergreen

Evergreen has a new little lending library! The concept has been spreading across the country – miniature "libraries" containing an assortment of free books placed in convenient locations around cities. Books of all kinds are left by generous donors who want to share their love of reading. Anyone is welcome to take a book, read and return it, or even keep it. The circle of donating and taking continues, and everyone benefits!
Evergreen's little lending library was lovingly built by our own residents in our Lester Bettin Woodshop.
Built by a few good men!

All it takes is an idea, and the men in the Evergreen woodshop are ready to get to work!
Now that renovations to our ShareHaven memory care building are complete, the last step is to finish re-landscaping the backyard private garden area. And what could be better than adding new seating! With that thought in mind, four residents and one community volunteer took on the project of planning and creating four attractive outdoor wooden benches. They even tweaked the original design plan by adding armrests for comfort.
Under the leadership of Life Enrichment Specialist Ellen Peters, the Evergreen woodshop has developed into an enjoyable place for residents to work on group and individual projects. Thank you Ed Steineke, Henry Krueger, Dick Ertmer, Bernie Wapp and Dave Cameron for the beautiful benches!
