At Brookside Care Center, a Kenosha County facility, employees are 100% responsible for our first-class reputation within the community. We strive for excellence in providing outstanding care and services to our guests. We choose quality employees who are willing to work as a team and are dedicated to our mission.  Come join our team of caregivers at our state-of-the-art facility!


In addition to 24 hour per day Registered Nursing staff, we have a full complement of Licensed Practical Nurses and Certified Nursing Assistants who deliver the highest quality nursing care to each of our residents, encouraging them to reach their optimal state of health and wellbeing.

We offer skilled rehabilitation nursing services, assisting short-term clients to heal and return to their previous living settings as quickly as possible, as well as services geared towards those who require the assistance of a skilled facility on a long-term basis and those nearing the end of life. Our services include, but are not limited to, post-surgical care, IV infusion therapy, respiratory services, wound care (directed by a wound care certified nurse), peritoneal dialysis, pain management, restorative nursing, dementia care, and hospice care.

We are dedicated to the model of Person Directed Care and work closely with residents, families, and the rest of the interdisciplinary team, to formulate a plan of care designed around the resident’s goals.

We promote continuing education for all of our nursing staff by offering online education as well as live in-house programs. We encourage our staff to remain current in the standards of nursing practice as well as working to improve their skills.

Brookside is also proud to contribute to the future of nursing by serving as a clinical practice site for Gateway Technical College’s A.D.N. and C.N.A. programs, Carthage College and Herzing University’s B.S.N. programs, and the Marquette University M.S.N. program. We are honored to help develop the nurses who will serve our community for years to come.
