Stair Crest senior living community welcomes first residents



MUSKEGO, WIS. — Stair Crest, Muskego’s newest senior living community, welcomed 10 residents to their new apartments yesterday. Located at S67W14765 Janesville Road, the former site of Tess-Corners Elementary School, the community offers a continuum of care options including 80 independent living apartments, 20 assisted living apartments and 20 memory care apartments. This enables Stair Crest residents to enjoy the quality of life they desire with the assistance they need.

“We are excited to welcome our new guests to this gorgeous community,” says Janet Krahn, Stair Crest campus administrator. “Even more, we are excited to have them experience the many social, emotional, physical and inspirational benefits that come from enjoying the ‘freedom to live well’ at Stair Crest.”

Stair Crest is built in a modern revival architectural design. A promenade entrance opens into a spacious two-story foyer overlooking a beautifully landscaped outdoor terrace, gazebo and large pond. The campus also includes a putting green and Bocce Ball court.

Stair Crest apartments are bright and spacious, featuring generous storage, beautiful kitchens and in-unit full-size washers and dryers. The campus’ town center offers a movie theater, dining, fitness center, library and more.

The community welcomes seniors from the area as well as Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa. Stair Crest seeks to be filled with continued learning and social programming.

The community demonstrates environmental stewardship through participation in the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewage District’s Community-based Green Infrastructure program, providing additional water treatment to storm water for higher water quality.

Owned and operated by Presbyterian Homes & Services (PHS), the nation’s fourth largest nonprofit senior living community provider, Stair Crest offers desirable social programs and convenient amenities for a comfortable and engaging lifestyle.

Stair Crest is named for Lois Stair – the first woman elected as moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and who was a member of First Presbyterian Church (Waukesha).

Ziegler, a Chicago-based investment bank, provided financing for the construction. Insite Architects, Saint Paul, Minn., specializing in senior housing design, served as Stair Crest’s architect. VJS Construction Services, Pewaukee, Wis., served as the project’s general contractor.

Stair Crest solidifies Presbyterian Homes & Services’ presence in the Milwaukee metro area as a place of good health, vitality and well-being for seniors while being part of a nonprofit, Christian-based organization that accepts all faiths.

“We’re delighted to add Stair Crest to the expanding ministry of PHS in eastern Wisconsin,” said Jon Fletcher, senior vice president of Senior Housing Partners, the development arm of PHS. “As our senior population grows, the need for additional senior living communities and services also grows, so this new campus is greatly needed.”

In addition to Stair Crest, PHS owns and operates five additional campuses in the area, including: Avalon Square, Waukesha; Dickson Hollow, Menomonee Falls; Fairway Knoll, Germantown; Kirkland Crossings, Pewaukee; and Towner Crest, Oconomowoc.
