Bell Tower is a corporate ministry of the Holy Cross Sisters, licensed by the State of Wisconsin since 1990. Bell Tower is a Christian community providing a broad range of options that help seniors enjoy a full life. By combining elements of home with services that aid in daily activities, we offer a place where seniors live well, with dignity and purpose.    

Bell Tower Residence blends a special combination of residential housing, personalized supportive services, and health care designed for the individual needs of those requiring help with activities of daily living.

                                

With respect for each person’s religious preference, worth, and dignity we strive to meet the spiritual needs of the people we serve. Our spiritual nurturing includes Protestant worship services, Catholic Mass, ecumenical services, Bible studies and one-on-one visitation.
