Assisted Living on Haven Drive Campus Now Open

Perfect moving weather welcomed residents as they moved into their new home at Pine Haven Christian Communities’ Haven Drive campus in north Sheboygan Falls on August 3rd.

Thirty-one residents moved into the new portion of the campus, coming from the community as well as moves from Pine Haven’s Pine Drive campus in Oostburg, their Giddings Avenue campus in Sheboygan Falls, and within the Haven Drive campus itself. Staff, family, and volunteers worked together to make the move a smooth and easy process with little disruption to the residents. Most of the moves started after breakfast and were complete in time for the residents to have lunch in their new home.

“God has led us through the building and move-in process, and His presence was clearly felt today,” said CEO Ron Walvoort. “He blessed us with beautiful weather, an efficient, relaxed relocation process, and a quick adjustment by all to their new homes. We give praise and thanks for His goodness.”

The new section of the Haven Drive campus includes 8 traditional assisted living apartments, 24 apartments for later stage memory care, and 8 apartments for those who need both memory care and high levels of physical care – the only assisted living household of its kind in Sheboygan County. Portions of the campus previously opened include: 40 apartments for supported independent living, 36 apartments for long-term skilled nursing care residents, 14 apartments for rehabilitative therapy patients, a state-of-the-art therapy gym providing both in-patient and out-patient rehabilitation services. It is a full continuum of care.

The campus also includes many community features such as a multi-purpose community center for community events, an educational center, and a Village Square with a café, general store, beauty salon, and room for people to gather and socialize. Built at-grade, so those with walkers or wheelchairs will have access to all features, Pine Haven’s Haven Drive campus is set up like a neighborhood, to feel like a community anyone would want to call home.

News of the move was featured in the Sheboygan Press in their article, "Pine Haven’s Haven Drive campus open in Sheboygan Falls."
