Madison, Wisc.—BrightStar Senior Living Madison and BrightStar Care Madison recently announced the Village of Waunakee has granted them approval for an assisted living and memory care community to be constructed at 1001 Quinn Drive.

“We identified a lack of assisted living and memory care options in northern Dane County,” Susan Rather, co-owner of BrightStar Senior Living Madison, said. “For families who live in or near Waunakee, having an option that is close to home means they will be able to spend more time visiting their loved ones.”

In 2014, BrightStar opened its first assisted living and memory care community in Madison, Wisc. Rather and her husband Jeff Tews officially took over the ownership of BrightStar Senior Living in 2015. With a current staff of more than 300, they have served over 1000 families and have provided temporary medical staff for dozens of facilities.

After seeing how the smaller, home-like environment had such an impact on the families it has served in its first location, BrightStar Senior Living Executive Director Bonnie Banker is excited that families in the Waunakee area will get the opportunity to experience that same feeling closer to home. “We are also excited about the opportunities this will bring to current and future staff looking to grow their careers in the healthcare field,” Banker stated.

The new property is slated to open in early 2018.
