About Our Wausau Community

At Primrose, life really is carefree! We strive to create healthy, secure environments for all our residents, where they feel valued, respected and free to live on their own schedules.

First-Class Amenities

Spacious floor plans, modern appliances, delicious meals, lively entertainment and gorgeous scenery of our local community ensure that your retirement experience at Primrose is always rewarding.

Comfort and Convenience

The Primrose lifestyle is maintenance-free, so you never need to worry about or schedule time for chores. Gone are the days of lawn mowing, household repairs, laundry and other maintenance tasks that would normally take up your entire day. We take care of everything from snow removal to repairs to providing 3 delicious, home-cooked meals every single day.

Rich Community Entertainment

Enjoying the programming options and social events at Primrose, as well as around the surrounding Wausau community, will add excitement to your everyday routine. You can choose to spend the day inside our community—at the library, in the theater, at the fitness center, or in our cafe—or you can venture outside into the great city of Wausau for some local shopping, hiking, cycling, or dining. We offer transportation options to help you get where you want to go in style and with ease.

Support for Your Health & Wellness

Your safety and security are always at the top of our minds. Our nursing staff is on-site 24/7, and wellness checks are scheduled at regular intervals, so you know you’re always getting the best care possible from our friendly team. If you do require support with certain daily activities, Primrose offers assisted living apartments, where you’ll have access to the help you need without it disrupting your independence.

We’re here to support you, not hinder you, which means every service we provide is done with respect and integrity.
