Our Culture

As a member of the North Shore Healthcare family, our community’s dedicated healthcare professionals strive to deliver quality care to those who have chosen us. Applegate Terrace’s goal is to create an environment that affords our residents the opportunity to be a partner in the care they receive, to develop trusting relationships with our caregivers, and to reach their highest level of independence. We are passionate about making our center The Right Choice for you or your loved one.

We have been serving the Wausau, Wisconsin and surrounding communities since 2001. The facility is just a block away from the Aspirus Wausau Hospital as well as many clinics to serve both Marshfield Clinic and Aspirus patients.  Additionally, we have an attached memory care unit and a skilled nursing center on the same campus allowing easy access to out-patient therapies.

Leadership Team

Executive Director – Krystena Kunze

“I have been working in the healthcare industry for a total of 10 years. I started out as a caregiver in an assisted living facility and knew this industry was where I belonged! I loved it so much I decided to go to school for Healthcare Administration and have never looked back! My favorite thing about working in healthcare and assisted living, in particular, is the daily impact that we are able to make on someone’s life each and every day.”

Director of Nursing – Nicole Jobe

“Healthcare is always changing. I have professionally accepted the challenge to improve and refine my personal practice to enhance my care and outcomes for the residents, families, and employees I serve.”


“I have been to three other facilities, and this is home. The staff are so friendly, courteous and always willing to lend a helping hand. My brother comes to visit often and is always made to feel at home, which is important to me. Applegate is a very fine place to live.”

– Alice Fisher, Resident

“The staff at Applegate Terrace administer good care and pay special attention to our needs. We feel safe here. We enjoy activities offered at the center such as bingo, trivia, and entertainment. Truly, everything you need is under one roof. We definitely would recommend this place to our friends and family!”

– Jack & Betty Marciniak, Residents
