Island Shores Assisted Living

Experience the Good Life at Island Shores

Are you ready to upgrade your lifestyle? Island Shores brings you the finest in Independent and Assisted Living in beautiful Neenah, WI. Whether you’re looking for action, relaxation or a mix of both, we’re sure you’ll find it here—and you’ll be glad you did!

Live the life you’ve always dreamed

Located in the heart of historic Doty Island, Island Shores combines the conveniences of home with the luxuries of community living. Residents can enjoy all that Neenah, Appleton and Doty Island have to offer: downtown shopping and restaurants, the Fox River, and YMCA. Amenities available at Island Shores include a full calendar of activities where someone might find themselves in our library, fitness center, chapel or card room. And for those who would rather not cook in their apartments, there are a number of delicious, locally sourced menu options available in our elegant Riverside Dining Room. The options are endless! Have an idea for a program or outing—just ask!

Care that’s always there

Our Neenah Assisted Living residents and residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that their physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social needs are being met in a variety of ways. From our Assisted Living Director (who is an RN) to our dedicated caregiving staff, they are always there to assist with your personal needs, provide reminders for activities and meals, and check on you every two hours if that is what you need. Our care is catered to you as an individual.

Worry-free lifestyle with just a simple lease

While some communities insist on new residents plopping down huge, non-refundable payments up-front, we like to do things a little differently. We care about not only the physical and emotional well being of our residents, but their financial health as well. That’s why we offer our residents all the perks of country club living without the expensive buy-in—just a simple lease.

Dining at Island Shores

Live Well, Dine Well

Allow our professionally trained service staff to present you with delicious dishes made from locally sourced ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At Senior Lifestyle, dining is an integral part of the resident experience, and we do everything we can to delight you with a personalized dining experience.

Dining Directors and Executive Chefs meet with residents to discuss and incorporate enhancements to the menu, special requests, favorite recipes or foods, and unless otherwise specified by state regulations we offer therapeutic diets such as reduced concentrated sweets, mechanical soft and purée. Residents can select healthy, locally sourced options based on the nutritional information, or they can simply opt to choose their favorites. And we always encourage residents and relatives to make special arrangements when expecting a family visit!

Meet Our Executive Director

Lisa Olenjniczak

Lisa Olenjniczak joins Island Shores with twenty years of experience in senior living, including time spent as an administrator of a skilled nursing/post-acute care facility and as Director of Health Care Development for Nicolet Staffing. She says that the best facet of her new role as Executive Director at Island Shores is the opportunity to assist and guide residents/families through their health care needs. She also states, “I really enjoy mentoring the team and individual development with the staff members.” Lisa has a degree in Health Care Administration from the University of Wisconsin at Eau Claire.

“I found very little wrong with Island Shores. It was tastefully decorated and clean. The Staff was attentive and professional. Upon entering the patient’s room, I noticed how comfortable the room looked. Again, the room was clean and finely decorated. The care provided during my visit was exceptional. I know that my patient is getting extremely good care while residing there.”

Testimonial Image

“The staff at island shores are the most caring, supportive people I’ve seen in a care facility. As a former CNA from California… I was impressed by the outstanding care my mother received from island shores in her last months of her life. Our family felt supported and cared for as well, as we cared for our dying mother. Their cooperation with hospice and other community support was seamless. They made us feel like family… Not consumers. My father still lives there and is enjoying the community support and positive environment. I know he is in good hands. I would recommend island shores to anyone who is considering assisted living for their loved one.”
