Carroll Heights is a senior housing complex for those 55 years of age or older which is owned and operated by La Crosse County. There are 58 one and two bedroom units in a variety of floor plans.
A senior housing complex is a style of life. It's more than an apartment complex, more than just walls. It's a way of life you choose to live to maximize your opportunities and independence. It's a community surrounding you with caring people from staff to other tenants who participate in the nutrition program, socialize, or challenge one another in a game. It's living in a safe and secure environment. It's knowing that you are a part of a caring community that is able to provide services needed to make your life comfortable and independent. It is a lifestyle of being set free from the responsibilities of maintaining a house. It is a lifestyle that frees you from the fears of loneliness, or having an accident while home alone.
Carroll Heights is located on a large campus near the bluffs with plenty of outdoor space including walking paths. It is adjacent to Hillview Health Care Center, (a 199 bed skilled nursing home) and the new Hillview Terrace Assisted Living Facility. The Carroll Heights apartments include tub with shower, electric range, frost-free refrigerator, mini-blinds, individual heat/air conditioning controls and an entry system for security. There are carports with electric outlets and additional parking for tenants and visitors. For those who like to garden, there are a number of garden plots available. Another popular plus is the Guest Suite for visitors of both Carroll Heights and Hillview. Carroll Heights has a connecting doorway to Hillview Health Care Center to provide easy access to church services, special activities and the beauty/barber shop. This has been particularly helpful for those who have spouse at Hillview and do not drive. Transportation is available as there is a city bus stop directly in front of the building. There are charter buses which provide transportation for grocery shopping and the County Mini-Bus system is available for clinic or special appointments.
