We pioneer a new approach to assisted living with the opening of our Catered Living Community Compass Point. This 75-unit community replaces the Home/Van Brunt Hall.
Extensive analyses are launched to investigate an economically viable future use for the building.
Hickory Suites Rehabilitation Facility opens. At 13,000 square feet, it features 14 private suites for inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation.
Riverside Lodge is updated and becomes home to our new memory care (Alzheimer's) unit.
Our Wellness Connection opens. Designed for Three Pillars' residents, staff, and community members 55 and older, the facility has a state-of-the-art exercise gym with custom equipment and an aerobic studio for classes such as Pilates, Yoga, and Zumba.
There is also a full demonstration kitchen where our campus chef provides healthy cooking demonstrations. The goal of the Wellness Connection is to focus on the whole person, by creating an environment for the health of the mind, body, and spirit.
Three Pillars is chosen to host Prudential Absolute Realtors' 2012 Giraffe Awards ceremony. Established in 1996, the Giraffe Awards celebrate volunteerism throughout the Lake Country area and the individuals who "stick their necks out" for others.
A formal Development Department is established with the hiring of Three Pillars' first Chief Development Officer. The department will lead fundraising efforts and cultivate advocacy for our residents through philanthropic support to further enhance their quality of life.
After the closing of Van Brunt Hall in 2006 and the following years of extensive analyses by Three Pillars' leadership, a future use for the building could not be identified. Due to its age, construction type, and market demands, an economically viable use was not attainable, and the most beneficial use of the property was determined to return to its original buildable condition. Van Brunt Hall was removed and the site restored.
In celebration of Older Americans Month during the month of May, Three Pillars releases their first ever lip syncing music video in partnership with student volunteers from Kettle Moraine School District's KM Perform. The video sweeps the internet and social media, reaching thousands and starting an annual tradition.
