Senior Living Advisor

Claire Merkt

I was born and raised in Wisconsin, and currently live in Waunakee. My family includes my partner of 30+ years, our 2 adult children and 3 grandchildren. I am the youngest of 7 children and grew up with a strong sense of family. My father passed away when I was a teenager. This was a huge loss for me. Currently, I balance life and work as interchangeable parts. With great pride and love, I was a primary caregiver and support to my mom for many years, until her passing in late 2018.

I've spent most of my career working with/for seniors. It's a passion and a calling! I've worked in healthcare, rehabilitation, case management, and a variety of senior living communities. Thank you for allowing me, and our Oasis Senior Advisors team of support, to help you locate and secure the services and resources you desire!

Senior Living Advisor

Ryan Landerholm

I’m originally from Rockford, IL where I spent much of my youth with my grandparents whom I had a strong connection with and always admired. My wife and I moved to Florida soon after we married and then returned to the Midwest soon after our children were born. We now call Sun Prairie, WI home and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else.

Before joining Oasis, I’ve spent most of my adult life serving older adults in both community settings and hospice services. Having extensive knowledge of what families navigate through to make decisions for their loved ones has propelled me into this role where I can offer a much broader scope of available services.

As a Senior Living Advisor, my goal is to remove the stress of finding the most appropriate community for your loved one. I look forward to working with you and taking away that overwhelming stress of choosing a community.

Hear From Families We've Helped

“When my mom was being released from a nursing facility but wasn’t yet ready to return home, I started to look for a place for her myself, and it was overwhelming. Without Oasis help, it would have been a long, confusing & time-consuming process. With his help it was quick & doable.

- Deborah L.

“You are a comforting presence to families during a difficult time. Your knowledge of local facilities and care options is invaluable.

- Holly

“As everyone knows, selecting a facility to care for a family member is an emotional journey. Oasis Senior Advisors provided counsel, guidance, and direction, and without their assistance we would not have found this facility.

- Terry B.

“I appreciate all of your help and guidance with our investigation. You definitely helped me with these decisions, as you had information that no one else I talked with seemed to have.

- David C.

“Oasis Senior Advisors services went the extra step for me and my advisor was compassionate and knowledgeable.

- L. Clayton

“Have referred a number of families to Oasis and will continue doing so. Every family is treated with tremendous respect with THEIR needs coming first. Do NOT look for a new living situation alone. There are too many decision points to list. Oasis will guide you through the maze.

- Kris B.

“I had the experience of placing my Aunt in a Assisted Living facility and called Oasis...the rest is history. They made a hard decision bearable, love them dearly. They are more than a job they are friends who care. I would recommend Oasis to anyone.

- Ann B.
