11/01/2010

Milwaukee Bucks point guard Keyon Dooling will be at Newcastle Place (12600 North Port Washington Road) on Monday, November 1, from 3:30-4:30 p.m. for the first ASSIST (Active Seniors Supporting Influencing Students Transitioning) program of the season. Dooling will speak with a group of local Milwaukee youth and senior residents about the economy and entrepreneurship.

Aside from playing in the NBA for 11 seasons, Dooling has established himself off the court in the business world. He majored in business at the University of Missouri and now owns several businesses, including part-ownership of the financial company International Sports Management.

For the fourth straight year, the Milwaukee Bucks have teamed up with the Milwaukee Protestant Home - Eastcastle/Newcastle Places (senior living communities) to create and implement the ASSIST program.  The program is a mutual mentoring program that gives students from Messmer High School a chance to learn more about how to handle adversity, networking for the future and what it takes to become a good leader, as well as allowing them to mentor the seniors in learning more about today's technology.    
Milwaukee Protestant Home, Inc., has provided care to seniors in the Milwaukee area for over 120 years.  Founded in 1884, Milwaukee Protestant Home has earned a reputation of providing compassionate care to seniors throughout the metropolitan Milwaukee area.

Newcastle Place in Mequon offers seniors the best living nestled in a beautiful country setting.  Eastcastle Place, on the corner of Downer and Bradford Avenues on Milwaukee's east side, offers seniors the best in urban living. Both communities provide a full continuum of care - independent living, assisted living, memory support and skilled nursing.
