“The Caring Communities organization and its Members welcome President & CEO Nicole Pretre and the entire Cedar Community organization as our newest Member,” said Caring Communities Chief Growth Officer, Ashur Odishoo. “Through our shared commitment to advanced aging services risk management, we are thrilled to be partnering with Nicole and her management team to elevate best practices in resident safety and security. The nearly 80 Members of Caring Communities recognize the importance of collaborating with like-minded organizations like Cedar Community as part of their long-term strategy to innovative industry partnerships.”

“Guided by our commitment to the safety and well-being of our residents and team members, Cedar Community is excited about the opportunity to become a member of Caring Communities,” commented Nicole Pretre. “Being an owner-member allows us to be a part of a collective network of not-for-profit senior living peers who foster collaboration, knowledge sharing, and the exchange of best practices. Additionally, this partnership gives us full access to Caring Communities’ resources and expertise that will guide us in implementing innovative risk management solutions.”

Over 70 years ago, Cedar Community was founded with one gift of land, the tireless efforts of a visionary leader, and thousands of volunteer hours. Over the years, they have grown to be the region’s largest faith-based, not-for-profit senior living community—supporting their friends and neighbors as they enjoy, explore, and embrace their best lives in beautiful Washington and Sheboygan County. Cedar Community’s natural settings, faith-based mission, and high-quality services afford seniors the opportunity to live a more purposeful, fulfilled life among family and friends.

Woven into the prairies, waterways, and forests of Wisconsin’s Kettle Moraine—just 45 minutes north of Milwaukee—the natural beauty surrounding Cedar Community makes their campuses unique. From that inaugural gift, Cedar Community has grown to include five campuses, with more than 900 residents, nearly 400 employees, and over 300 volunteers. Learn More
