My mother, suffering from Parkinson’s with Dementia, resided at Wright House Memory Care, also known as Ionicare of Mequon LLC, for 13 months until her death in [removed]. After a fall out of bed, she sustained a subdural hematoma and fractured arm, resulting in her death. During her time at the Wright House, she had numerous falls from bed. They failed to implement an appropriate fall management and prevention program, which, with proper execution may have prevented her death.
The state visited Wright House in July to interview personnel and collect data in accordance with the grievances filed in June. However, those reporting the initial violations did not verify statements and information provided by the facility. Misrepresentations found in those documents are consistent with others evident in the deceased’ records obtained from Wright House.
In October 2017, the WI Department of Health Services - Division of Quality Assurance issued a Notice of Violation, an Order to Submit a Plan of Correction, a Notice of Special Orders, and a Notice of Imposed Forfeiture to Ionicare of Mequon LLC, doing business as Wright House Memory Care, a Community Based Residential Facility. This notice and order addresses concerns, issues and wrongdoing at the facility.
Not too bad but not too great
I toured this community when I was looking for a place for my aunt and the second I walked in, I could tell it wasn't the right place for her. The whole facility felt so sterile and institutionalized. I'm sure this wasn't their intention but the whole place just felt like a hospital and not at all like a warm home. No one seemed to be rude, it just didn't feel like it was a nice place to relax and rest.
Tour for care
We toured this community and it had a lot to offer. This would have been my second choice for the care and the great staff who answered the questions on the care that is offered. This community gives you a good feeling. And the activities are offered for the residents who want to participate. I would highly recommend this for families to your for good care.
The Aster Memory Care has been to my mother so far. The place is clean, the staff is all friendly, and the food is good. It's a small community so the residents receive more attention from the caregivers.

Moved my mom from an assisted living center on Port Road in Mequon to Aster Care. I am very pleased with the decision. Mom is actually getting better. She looks good, she gained a little weight and started playing games again. I inspected 7 different memory care facilities in the area and Aster Care was the clear winner.

Beautiful facility, High staff turnover. Management seem unattached and unapproachable. Recommended by a close friend who loved the executive Director and stated she was very involved.
My friend parent has since moved out. Executive Director no longer there.

They shouldn't have opened up yet!
The community is clean and the food is good. They are understaffed making it very difficult for them to give my mom the attention she needs. They don't have a full time activity coordinator. My mother has no privacy as residents are constantly walking into her room. I will be moving her out very soon.

New building but severely unprepared to provide quality care. The understaffed caretakers are poorly trained and have little personalized interaction with the residents. Caretakers expected to do housekeeping, maintenance and activities. Management staff availability is limited and often unresponsive.
