For more than 45 years, CHI Franciscan Villa has lovingly and skillfully cared for the residents of South Milwaukee and the surrounding communities. We have held the hands of mothers recovering from traumatic health issues and we have comforted fathers and their families as they face end of life together. We have helped husbands and wives who have lost their spouse to death or dementia cope with the challenges of being alone.
These challenges have not changed and our care to those in need has not ceased; rather it has grown in ways we could not have imagined. As we look to the future and how CHI Franciscan Villa can best meet the needs of our residents and the greater community, we face many uncertainties that stem from a world that is ever changing. Reductions in funding for seniors and lack of resources, all weigh heavily on everyone’s mind—
CHI Franciscan Villa is no different. As a Catholic Healthcare Ministry we continue Jesus’ mission of love and healing despite the many challenges. It is the love of our residents that is foremost in our mission of care.
Providing this care does not come without significant challenges for CHI Franciscan Villa. On an annual basis, we face an average $2 million shortfall in public assistance funding. Despite this significant shortfall, our mission guides us to provide for everyone regardless of their ability to pay and we recognize that caring for our residents does not end when their finances are diminished. With over 270 seniors who call CHI Franciscan Villa home, we provide a much needed continuum of care which includes skilled nursing, assisted living, as well as care for residents who are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.
Help us help others who need the safety and support that CHI Franciscan Villa provides. A gift to the CHI Franciscan Villa Foundation’s Resident Assistance Fund, in honor or in memory of your loved one, will help us to continue to provide the high level of care, dignity, safety, and compassion our residents--and their families--deserve. Any amount will help our mission, but please consider a gift of $35.00 or more; $35.00 equals the average daily shortfall for a resident that is dependent upon public assistance. A gift of $250.00 will help offset the average weekly shortfall for one of our residents that is dependent upon public assistance.
