Lakeland Care Celebrates 20 Years of Service

Lakeland Care 20 Year Anniversary Logo.







Lakeland Care, Inc. (LCI) is excited to announce our 20-year milestone of providing key services to seniors and adults with disabilities! Located in communities throughout Northeast and North Central Wisconsin, Lakeland Care is proud to be known as a member centered long-term care resource for individuals.


Lakeland Care evolved from Creative Care Options of Fond du Lac County, which was one of the first Family Care pilot organizations to open in February 2000. We’ve now grown to serve twenty-two counties throughout Northeast and North Central Wisconsin and are grateful to provide long-term needs and enrichment to the lives of over 7,400 members.


We do this by working in close partnership with our over 1,000 local provider organizations. These provider partners are the backbone to ensuring that members are able to live in the community they call home. In addition, many members are fortunate to have the support of their family, friends, or neighbors to help them live in their own homes.


Throughout the many changes in health and long-term care during the past two decades, LCI leaders and employees have remained committed to providing person-centered care to all it’s members. As a mission-focused company, our goal remains constant: To assist members who receive care and services from Lakeland Care to live their best possible life while maximizing their strengths.


Sara Muhlbauer, Lakeland Care’s CEO, stated “Lakeland Care has experienced exceptional growth over the past several years, and has achieved this milestone through the hard work and dedication of our employees and providers. We are honored to be a part of so many local communities and to serve those citizens.”


Lakeland Care values the communities we live and work in and encourage all employees to find a way to ‘give back.’ Our employees live and work in the communities we serve. Our success is directly related to the relationships we form with others, and the contributions that we make together!
