Attention Family and Friends –

  • Homme Home’s Nursing Home Changing Focus

  • Due to ongoing critical workforce shortages and unsustainably high costs of operations due to low reimbursement through the Medicaid program, Homme Home for the Aging, Inc. has made the difficult decision to close the skilled nursing facility (nursing home).

  • The decision to close the skilled nursing facility was not taken lightly. With the ongoing challenges with the workforce shortage and inadequate reimbursement, our organization can no longer sustain the skilled nursing facility. Homme is not alone in this as since 2016 over 50 nursing homes in Wisconsin have made the difficult decision to close due to the ongoing pressures of workforce shortages and reimbursement. Furthermore, according to data from LeadingAge Wisconsin, since March of 2020, over 2,110 nursing home beds have been delicensed, which is equivalent to the loss of thirty, 70-bed nursing homes.

  • Homme is working closely with the State Relocation Team to ensure a careful transition of nursing home residents to an appropriate setting. Throughout this process we will assure that all care needs are met, resident rights are protected, and resident centered care is maintained.

  • At Homme we will continue to provide our mission and serve our residents in our assisted living facilities and independent living. Our plan is to transition the nursing home space into additional assisted living space, so that we can expand our mission and further care for older adults in our community.

  • At Homme we have been caring for our community for one hundred forty years and look forward to continuing our mission and providing the highest level of care for our residents.
