This was an unexpected gift: a great facility, small and intimate, but homey, with a very dedicated and caring staff and a truly welcome atmosphere. I would recommend it highly to anyone seeking assisted living.

Provider Response

Thank you for your 5-Star review of Library Terrace Assisted Living! A Wisconsin-owned and Wisconsin managed senior community, we are able to offer a very personalized level of care catering to the needs of those in Kenosha area. Our intimate size allows us to truly get to know all of our residents and their families while at the same time offering exceptional service from our professional staff the majority of whom have worked on our campus for 5 or more years. We appreciate your recommendation of Library Terrace to your family and friends who may be seeking assisted living for themselves or a family member.

A great place for mom with caring staff, excellent food and lots of activities.

Provider Response

Thank you for taking the time to provide us a 5 Star Review. We are grateful for our incredible staff -- many of whom have worked on this campus for 5 or more years. Their care and diligence during the COVID-19 pandemic has allowed us to maintain a safe and healthy environment for everyone who lives and works at Library Terrace. Our Life Enrichment Coordinators and other staff have developed many new, unique and fun activities during this challenging time that have kept everyone in good spirits. We welcome any new referrals that you might send our way!

Library Terrace Assisted Living was very clean and organized. The staff was very friendly. They just wouldn't be able to accommodate my father because he was bedridden. The dining room was clean, organized, and homey. Everything was well lit. Our questions were answered and they took their time. Everything was well maintained and it felt homey. There's ample parking.

Provider Response

Thank you for your positive feedback regarding Library Terrace Assisted Living. Unfortunately, like most other assisted living providers in our area we are unable to move-in a resident who is bedridden from the start. These individuals are typically cared for in a skilled nursing facility. However, when one of our already established residents has a decline in their health such that they become bedridden and are near the end of life we will may try to maintain them at our community with the help of hospice care. Those situations are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

My dad is at Library Terrace. It's good. The people seem friendly. There are sufficient staff members to take care of my dad's needs. They don't have a lot of amenities because it is a small place. They have a library room with a TV if you want to go outside of your apartments. They have all the meals in an area where you can have your meals, they have three different spots outside where you can sit if you want to be outside, they have people that come in and do exercises with the residents, and they have some recreational activities too. My dad seems to like the food; he hasn't complained about it. Overall, the place is clean and updated, and the people are nice. The staff members have been very helpful. My dad has had a few issues, but they have been great with him.

Provider Response

Thanks so much for providing your review. We appreciate the feedback. Glad to hear that your dad is enjoying the made-from-scratch meals that our chefs prepare. As mentioned, we have Full Time staff at both of the buildings on the Library Terrace campus who provide a wide range of daily activities as well as our Senior Fitness program. In fact, one of our Life Enrichment Coordinators is in the process of becoming certified in Tai Chi and will be enhancing our Fitness Program with Tai Chi classes as well. We understand that many residents, like your dad, come to us experiencing some very difficult losses. It is indeed gratifying to hear that our staff have done an exceptional job in helping your dad with his transition to a new living environment while dealing with his grief. We are grateful that you took that time to share about your dad and your family’s positive experiences at Library Terrace!

Library Terrace has been a God-Send for our family. We are now blessed with the peace of mind that comes with knowing our Dad is safe and well-cared for. We tried what we could to keep him at home. Senior delivery meals were often found half eaten. The turnover with in-home care was so frequent we were never confident or comfortable having so many different people coming and going. He wasn’t eating healthy meals, he wasn’t staying hydrated, he was at risk for falls, and he was either sleeping or watching TV most of the day. His quality of life was gone. Life has changed for Dad. He is getting regular, “home-cooked” meals; he exercises daily, he participates in activities with other residents and keeps updated on current events. His Suite and the surrounding common areas are well-appointed, but homey. The number of suites is small enough that he knows all of his neighbors and the staff. Activity Director Robin has become a member of the family; Campus Nurse Sarah is attentive to anything that he needs. He remarks regularly on how quickly a staff member arrives when he calls – even if it is just to open the twist off cap off a drink. He has his own Suite decorated just as he likes it; the grounds are beautiful and provide an opportunity for bird watching and gardening. He is truly living in a community and I can't begin to say enough about his new home.

Provider Response

Your wonderful review of Library Terrace is a reminder to us as why we love working with Seniors and their families! We are so gratified to hear that your dad’s move to Library Terrace has transformed his life for the better. We appreciate the kudos your family offered to our staff members. We feel truly blessed to have found and retained such an exceptional team of long term employees. Robyn, who you mentioned, has working with our residents for over 8 years! Thank you for the heart-warming compliments but also please let us know if there is anything that we can do to improve the experience for your dad or your family.

Love this place! Mom has lived there a couple years and is very happy there. Staff Is wonderful and facility is very nice.

Provider Response

Thanks so much for taking the time to let us know how happy your Mom is at Library Terrace. We appreciate your feedback and agree that we have exceptional staff! Just one of the reasons why Library Terrace was voted as one of the best Assisted Living Communities in Kenosha, Wisconsin for the second year in a row!

I visited this facility

It didn't feel as good as I walked in Library Terrace Assisted Living. There were only around 4 residents sitting around talking, but it was so noisy. I could not understand why it was so noisy because these 4 people weren't even talking loud. It may be the acoustics or the high ceiling. I don't know; I just didn't like it from the very beginning. I just talked to the one who showed me around. The whole place just kind of turned me off. I think they need to improve on the overall appearance and their presentation.

Provider Response

Thank you for your feedback. We agree that continued improvement is important for assisted living providers. Many positive changes occurred at Library Terrace during 2016. We wanted to make you aware that both buildings on our campus have had a complete update….. including new carpeting and painting throughout, remodeling of common area spaces, upgrading of the resident apartment kitchenettes and all new furniture, to name a few of the many improvements. We do have a lively and social group of residents who are engaged in many activities throughout the day. Admittedly, there can be quite a bit of laughter and high spirits when they get together. Our two full-time Life Enrichment Coordinators provide many opportunities during the day in which residents can be involved including our daily senior fitness program. Library Terrace is a good option for individuals who are seeking a smaller, more home-like setting in a long established single family home neighborhood. We continue to seek more ways to increase the quality of the services that we can offer to our residents and are participating in the Wisconsin Assisted Living Association Diamond Accreditation program. In October of 2016 Library Terrace was voted as one of the top two assisted living communities in the Best of Kenosha County people's choice awards. We certainly hope that you found a senior living community that was a better fit for your family member's needs.

Library Terrace Assisted Living has activities like crafts. It has a little room where they do puzzles, and they have exercise equipment. It's a small community, so they can give the residents more attention. Dad has a 1-bedroom which is very nice. It has 2 closets, and the size is good. The bathroom has a nice cabinet and bars to help him get up from his wheelchair. The neighborhood is nice, too. There are religious services, and they also have laundry services.

Provider Response

We very much appreciate the positive review! We are indeed gratified that your family member has chosen to live at Library Terrace Assisted Living. We continue to seek ways to enhance the services and amenities that we offer and welcome feedback from our residents and their families. Thank you!

Library Terrace Assisted Living is an intimate senior living campus with spacious apartments and suites located in a long-established, family neighborhood in Kenosha WI. Our caring staff under the direction of our campus RN provide 24/7 assist our residents to graciously maintain their independence as their needs change. Chef-inspired fine dining with made-from-scratch meals. We offer a wide range of daily activities including our Senior Fitness program.

Small enough to be home-like yet large enough to offer the amenities and services one might expect in larger senior communities, Library Terrace Assisted Living is perfect for those who are struggling with making the transition from home to a senior community. Located adjacent to the Kenosha Southwest Neighborhood Library, the campus is conveniently situated near Festival Foods, Walgreen’s pharmacy, banking, medical clinics, churches, restaurants and much more!

The campus consists of Library Terrace Apartments – 26 apartment units where seniors can age in place and receive up to 28 hours of services per week depending on their needs --- and Library Terrace Suites – 20 units for seniors with higher care needs. Offering a continuum of care allows seniors to move in while still relatively independent and then age in place as their needs change over time.

We see each resident of Library Terrace Assisted Living as their own unique individual. Consequently, a variety of services are offered tailored to each resident’s needs. Our chefs get to know the food preferences of each individual and menus feature fresh fruits and vegetables plus high quality meats and fish.

Our full time on campus registered nurse does weekly wellness checks and works closely with our direct care staff to monitor changes in condition. Our 24/7 staff are here to respond to needs as they arise, day or night.

The smaller building size can ease the transition from a home of many years and allows new residents to quickly get to know the staff and other Library Terrace seniors.

At Library Terrace the focus is on the whole person including physical, spiritual, social and mental well-being.
