“I wanted to live in a place central to lots of activities in New Richmond. Boardman Meadows is just a four block drive to a grocery store, which I love, and is near downtown, so when my kids visit we can hop in the car and be at a restaurant in minutes. I also love Boardman Meadows’ staff.”

“When my only sister died suddenly in Nevada, my almost 104 year old mother had to be brought back to Wisconsin soon. Assorted phone calls led me to Rose Lenzner at Boardman Meadows. What a break in a stressful situation! With her help and expertise I was able to move my mother into Boardman Meadows quickly. Rose, who is Boardman Meadows’ manager, does a great job. The residences are very nice and my mother is happy here. Thanks Boardman Meadows and Ecumen for being there when we needed you.”
– Jackie Echleman
