Did you know Crossing Rivers Health offers Assisted Living? Crossing Rivers Health Assisted Living (formerly Walter Schmidt Assisted Living) is located at 424 N. Beaumont Road in Prairie du Chien.

Crossing Rivers Health Assisted Living offers a home-like atmosphere for 26 residents who are free to come and go as they please. Residents spend most of their time having fun – with minimal time in their rooms.

We would love to talk with you and schedule a tour. Please feel free to call 608.357.2170.

Experience a place where everyone is like family

At Crossing Rivers Health Assisted Living, we aim to improve the quality of life of our residents and are dedicated to maintaining and improving their independence. We truly feel like our staff and residents together “experience a place where everyone is like family”.

Our residents enjoy:

  • Made to order breakfast and chef-prepared lunch and supper
  • Engaging activities every day during the week, including parties (lots of parties!), outings, BINGO, trivia, exercises, pet therapy, fun activity time with children, and much more!
  • A variety of religious services

As members of the Crossing Rivers Health Assisted Living staff, we love what we do. It’s like going home every day when you go to work. We are also very proud of our patient to staff ratio and truly enjoy getting to spend quality time with our residents.
