    What Make Us Different?
    ElderSpan Management LLC, which manages The Pines Senior Living, is a local Wisconsin family-owned company that began because Greg and Carol Griffin were seeking care for Carol’s mother, who was battling Parkinson’s disease. Not finding what they were looking for, Greg’s expertise as a hospital administrator and Carol’s as a Registered Nurse motivated them to develop a new resident-centered, healthcare-focused assisted living model. They opened The Pines, their first facility, in 1995.

    ?We are proud to share that many of our employees have worked with us for more than five years! We have licensed nurse’s (Care Coordinators) onsite at each facility. All of our Administrators are licensed nurses.
