Support Our Extra Needs For COVID-19

Community News in Middleton & Madison WI

It's Official!

Attic Angel has earned the Dementia Specific designation from Leading Age Wisconsin, a professional community of nonprofit aging services providers and other mission-driven organizations serving older adults.


The Dementia Care Designation System™ is intended to both highlight the dementia care services in which a facility might be excelling along with the areas in which a facility could grow and expand. For consumers, families, and the greater community, this assessment strives for excellence within the aging services industry to best support and provide the utmost quality of care to individuals living with dementia.

Attic Angel Community, whose locally loved senior living services date back to the 1950s, added memory care in 2007 to its array of high-quality retirement living options.

The Playing Field

The Playing Field Poster

Children affected by trauma such as homelessness and those with special needs such as autism spectrum disorders have different sensory needs for emotional support that helps them learn to manage behaviors. Our dream is to create a play space that allows children to be successful while ... being kids! Some of our plans:

  • A large open space for running (crowded spaces are often a behavior trigger for children)
  • High fencing and an appropriate climbing structure (children impacted by trauma or those on the autism spectrum often take bigger risks and climb higher)
  • Sensory panels that welcome independent play when children are agitated
  • A maze for children to walk through (this helps the brain to organize)
  • Small structures where children can feel safe
  • Specially designed pieces to work large muscle groups

By helping children at this critical point in their development, your gift will be helping the future of our community!
