Enjoy Comfort and Safety in our Independent Living Apartments

Carnegie Place, a senior living community located in the heart of West Allis and metropolitan Milwaukee, has become a warm and comfortable home for many senior residents who enjoy the deluxe amenities of the community and the proximity to the neighborhoods they know and love. Residents can choose from a variety of spacious one-bedroom apartment styles each with unique, charming and well-designed features. Built as a library by a grant from the Carnegie Foundation in 1904, the building was acquired and renovated into apartments by Capri Communities in 2001.

Carnegie Place encourages an active, independent lifestyle balanced with comfort and security. Our location offers easy access to supermarkets, medical services, churches, restaurants and all the entertainment and activities in Milwaukee. Carnegie Place builds and maintains relationships with area business and civic organizations. These connections make it easy for our residents to participate in activities inside and outside the community.

    Mona Schmalz

    Community Manager

    Mona joined Capri Communities in 2005 and is the Community Manager at Hedwig House, Three Oaks Circle and Carnegie Place. She has worked in all forms of property management for over 40 years. The ability to help people each day is what makes Mona most proud about her role at her communities. “In some small way I can make residents’ lives better even for the briefest of moments,” she said. “My residents have taught me so much. The greatest thing they have taught me is to never give up and to love with everything you have.” Mona hopes people remember her for the way she can make people laugh, even in tough times, and that she is passionate about helping people. “I want to let anyone who has ever helped me or loved me to know how much they mean to me.” When Mona is not at work, she is happiest learning new things and exploring new ideas. Her personal motto is: If you are not doing things to help make this world a better place, it is not worth doing. It’s clear that Mona has a kind, helpful soul and is passionate about working with her residents and team, making sure they have the best experience and outcome possible.
