The history began in 1988 with Shoreline Residence, an 18 bed Community Based Residential Facility in Cudahy, WI. Founded by a team of two siblings, Richard and JoAnne Coury, it provided a strong administrative and compassionate nursing balance which set a precedent for future growth. Their sister, Geralyn, was added as a nurse in 1992. In 1995, their brother, John, also joined the nursing team as Ramsey Woods Residence, a 32 bed Community Based Residential Facility, was established.
The growth continued in 2001 with the expansion into Franklin when the namesake property, Elizabeth Residence, a 63 bed, 2 building property named after the Coury’s mother, was built. A fifth sibling, Mark, was brought on board in 2005 with the acquisition of the Bayside campus, a 52 bed Community Based Residential Facility and newly opened and remodeled 40 unit independent and supportive living apartment complex.
In November 2009, a 50 bed Community Based Residential Facility in Caledonia was remodeled and opened as the latest location in the Elizabeth Residence community.
