Life Care Services Appoints Julie Bissonnette as Executive Director of Newcastle Place

Dec. 14, 2012

Mequon, Wis., December 14, 2012 – Life Care Services™, an LCS™ company, recently assumed management of Mequon senior living community Newcastle Place, and it has named Julie Bissonnette as executive director. Bissonnette will oversee all operations at the community recently purchased by LCS.

“I’m excited to join such a strong, established team that clearly puts the residents first in all that they do,” said Bissonnette. “From my first visit, it was apparent that Newcastle Place is a beautiful community with warm, welcoming residents that made this a very attractive opportunity.”

Bissonnette brings years of senior living management experience to Newcastle Place having worked at three Life Care Services communities prior to accepting the position. She has held roles of increasing responsibility, including the position of executive director at Peabody Retirement Community in North Manchester, Ind.

“At Peabody, I started as executive director just as Life Care Services was beginning management, and I’ve seen firsthand the difference the company can make for a community,” said Bissonnette. “The ability to rely on the expertise and resources from an industry leader that has successfully done this for more than 40 years will be invaluable as we continue to strengthen the already stellar reputation Newcastle Place has earned.”

With Life Care Services now managing Newcastle Place, Bissonnette will guide the implementation of some of the company’s signature programs at the community including a customer service initiative and a resident wellness plan. Bissonnette and her staff are also currently soliciting input from all Newcastle Place residents with a survey to gauge opinions on the operations and services such as dining, transportation and resident activities.

Bissonnette holds a bachelor’s degree in health care administration from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, and she lives with her husband in Oak Creek.
