Sheboygan Senior Community has been proudly serving our senior community members since 1962. We have maintained respect, care, friendliness and an enjoyable living atmosphere.
2018 - 2019
- May 2019, SSC rebranded to remain Sheboygan Senior Community, but to go by SSC for short.
- Spring 2018 strategic planning began for our upcoming memory care building and campus vision.
2010 - 2015
- New Executive Director Paul Treffert hired.
- Former Executive Director Joan Kleist retired.
- Then, in September 2015, the residents moved in to our facility off County Rd Y.
- Lighthouse Commons, Beach Skilled Nursing (now known as Maple Creek and Oak Drive) and Beacon Suites (now known as Willow Lane) relocated under one roof to our new location off County Road Y and Mueller Road in the town of Sheboygan.
- At the end of June 2014, construction began on our current building.
- Beginning in the winter of 2010, SSC began strategic planning for a replacement facility for the aging building off 6th.
2006 - 2008
- Landmark was finally completed on May 1, 2008 and opened its doors as Sheboygan’s newest independent living facility for seniors.
- Tragedy struck when an arsonist set the nearly completed Landmark Square condos on fire in 2007.
- In May 2006, construction began on the independent living condo association, Landmark Square.
- In May 2004, our name officially changed one final time to Sheboygan Senior Community.
- Major renovations to the old 6th Street building include expanded dining rooms and kitchens and an outside deck on the east side of the Sheboygan Senior Community nursing home.
- Beach Health Care Center nursing home was added to existing buildings thanks to the donation from the Beach family.
1968 - 1978
- We broke ground in 1968 to move one of the apartment buildings, connecting it to another similar building on the property. This combined unit was eventually demolished when SSC expanded in 1980 to include a health center.
- On July 1, 1970 we opened our doors to the first residents. We were the only nonprofit institution in Sheboygan providing independent retirement living and nursing care (through an infirmary) for seniors.
- By 1978, we knew the need for a true skilled nursing care facility was imminent. The State approved the request for 84 total skilled care beds.
- We were founded as a nonprofit home for men and women age 65 and older in 1962 in large part due to Dr. T. Parry Jones, former minister of First Methodist Church.
- Sheboygan Retirement Home opened its doors!
- In 1966, a four apartment home was purchased, bringing the total number of apartments to 14.
- Also in 1966, our Articles of Incorporation were amended, changing the corporate name from Sheboygan Methodist Home for the Aged to Sheboygan Retirement Home, Inc.
- Our roots date back to 1945. First Methodist Church (now St. Luke United Methodist) purchased an adjacent house and lot for future use, and soon after rented it to a church couple in need of low cost housing.
- Purchased a 2-apartment house on the adjoining street.
- Bought another smaller house.
- All rented to needy church members at low cost.
- The church already owned two lots on the block, so they bought one more to begin what would become SSC.
