Care Wisconsin is fairly new to Shawano, but not to the state. The organization is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.
The family care program, which has been here for one year, works with people who have been referred by the Shawano-based Aging and Disability Resource Center of the Wolf River Region.
“It’s going very well,” said Cathy Gove, Care Wisconsin marketing and communications manager.
Care Wisconsin’s Family Care program matches frail seniors and individuals 18 and older with disabilities to the health care and long-term services they need.
“We are committed to helping members live as independently as possible,” said Julie Stoltenow, care manager.
Stoltenow’s primary office is in Shawano, but she also supports members in Oconto, Marinette, Menominee, Brown, Door and Kewaunee counties.
Family Care fills the gaps in services to help people at risk who meet income, functional and residency requirements.
