About Silverstone Memory Care of Appleton

Silverstone Memory Care Dining Room

We are licensed by the State of Wisconsin Dept of Health Services, Division of Quality Assurance as a Community-Based Residential Facility (CBRF) “assisted living”, specializing in caring for those with moderate to advanced Alzheimer’s Disease and other dementias.

Our brand-new facility features 44 private resident rooms in two wings named Birdsong and Riverscape. Each wing is designed to evoke a sense of tranquility and connection to nature. This is an innate human sense that remains in each of us even when dementia becomes a reality.

Our leadership team has been together for over 14 years providing assisted living memory care in central Wisconsin. We look forward to bringing our expertise, advocacy for the elderly and passion for caregiving to our new venture in the Fox Valley.

About the Owners

Jessica and Brad Schmidt own Tanglewood Assisted Living which has two memory care CBRFs in Plover, WI and Silverstone Memory Care which has a memory care CBRF in Appleton, WI.

Jessica and Brad live in Plover with their two daughters, Emma and Lauren, along with their Bernese Mountain Dog, Simon and Siberian Husky, Thor.

Jessica Schmidt holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology with a minor in Gerontology. She earned a Master’s Degree in Public Administration (MPA), along with a formal Graduate Certificate in Health Care Finance.

Jessica started her long-term care career at age 18 as a caregiver and manager working in the same CBRFs in Plover that she now owns nearly two decades later. At age 22, Jessica was recognized as the youngest volunteer for Hospice of Portage County.

Jessica spent 10 years working for Portage County’s “Family Care” program, now called Inclusa as a Provider Network manager prior to re-joining the CBRF world.

Jessica’s husband and company co-owner, Brad Schmidt holds a Master’s Degree in instrumental music for K-12 and has 31 years of teaching experience at the junior high and high school level for band.

He is currently the band and jazz band director for Stevens Point Area Senior High School. He is also skilled in maintenance and construction work. He has owned several real estate investments, including rental properties and has constructed multi-family housing complexes.

Jessica and Brad received Portage County’s “Young Leaders” Award in 2009 for their entrepreneurship. They share the philosophy that assisted living is the type of business that is most successful when it is locally owned and operated. Assisted living is about taking care of people who are aged and evolving through the final years of life. These are our respected elders who have lived in, contributed to and influenced the life of our community for generations.

No one can provide the kind of genuine, sincere care and attention that is so needed and deserved by our elders than business owners who share the same community values and hold in their hearts and sound business minds an unwritten commitment to care for one another through the passage of life.
