The organization is the sixth largest employer in Oconomowoc, works as a strong City, County and State partner, is a productive Chamber member and community advocate. Shorehaven is not only a leader in providing progressive senior services, but serves as an industrious force in providing for its communities.

Shorehaven delivers 55 Mobile Meals a day to inbound community seniors as part of our community outreach. The prices are low and volunteers deliver them to their door.
Waukesha County Food Recovery Program -Shorehaven donates hundreds of dollars’ worth of food annually to county pantries to provide meals to the less fortunate.
Shorehaven lends its warehouse property to Feeding America, a jointly sponsored church outreach supplying thousands of pounds of food annually to needy families. Food is dispersed to families monthly Oct. – March.
Also, Shorehaven is Medicaid certified, and we accept state funding for residents who have outlived their assets, which is usually much less than the private pay rate is. We help to subsidize their care.
We also assist staff who can’t afford to go back to school through our Tuition and Scholarship programs, to assist them in continuing education. This also ensures quality care for our residents.
Shorehaven also hosts and provides clinicals and classrooms for Certified Nurse Assistant training classes.
We donate extra medical supplies to various charities in the United States and the World.
