Assisted Living in Spooner

We are excited to welcome you into our Dove Healthcare family as we expand our footprint in Wisconsin!

This location at 819 Ash Street Suite W201 in Spooner, WI (previously Villas at Maple Ridge) was acquired by Dove Healthcare on May 1, 2024, and the new name is Dove Healthcare – Spooner Assisted Living!

Conveniently located next to Dove Healthcare – Spooner, our close association assures skilled nursing and rehabilitation services are just a step away if you require outpatient therapy or a short-term, inpatient stay after hospitalization or illness.

Our executive leadership team is committed to supporting Spooner and growing together as we advance Dove Healthcare's mission and confidently step into this next era.

Focusing on the needs of our residents and supporting our team members are what sets us apart.
