Caring110482550: "We like the location of Care Partners. They've got a patio that has a roof over it. They play bingo, cards, and they have people come in and sing with the residents. It's perfect. The food is very good. We spent my dad's birthday in my mother's room. She has a card table and four chairs in there in case she gets company. She has a TV in her room with cable. We got all her clothes in her closet, and her clothes are washed individually, not washed with anybody else's. "

In Oshkosh and all of Wisconsin, assisted living facilities (ALF) are defined as facilities that supervise individuals with some level of need who choose to live without 24-hour nursing care. There are four types of ALFs — adult day care, adult family homes, community-based residential facilities and residential care apartment complexes — and each is regulated and licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services.
