Assisted living facility to convert to private apartments

St. Louis-based Cedarhurst Senior Living will convert its local 60-bed facility, at 5601 Burke Road in Madison, from assisted living to private apartments, according to a Wisconsin State Journal report. The decision will mean the facility will stop accepting Medicaid payments as of Dec. 10 and approximately two dozen residents will be required to move within 60 days. A letter from Cedarhurst to residents said the company is ending its relationship with Wauwatosa-based My Choice Wisconsin. My Choice is a managed care organization that oversees care for older adults and people with disabilities in Wisconsin’s Family Care program.
