My mother lives at Heather Hills and is so happy there! After Grandpa died, she was lonely so we asked her to look into a retirement community. She found Heather Hills and has really enjoyed her new apartment. She has a lot of friends and there are so many activities. The most important thing is that she is enjoying her independence. I'm so grateful for the staff at Heather Hills...they are just great.

Built In 1974 , Number of Beds : 171

Assisted living communities provide a chore-free lifestyle and the support seniors need to maintain as much independence as possible. Living in a senior community has many advantages. Research suggests that seniors who live near their peers and have a variety of social activities feel a greater sense of well-being. With assisted living, you'll enjoy senior-friendly homes and a welcoming staff. Other services you'll find include around-the-clock supervision and security, access to professional nurses, emergency call systems, help with daily living, and nutritious meals prepared by chefs. These communities typically provide linen service, housekeeping, transportation, and a calendar of social events. Independent living is designed for seniors who are self-reliant but who want to enjoy a low-maintenance life. Tailored for both individuals and couples, these senior communities are also known as retirement villages, 55+ communities, and senior apartments. Residents stay in private apartments or individual homes with a range of community amenities, services, and programs tailored just for seniors. You’ll enjoy your own space, so you can bring your favorite belongings, such as furniture and personal items. With independent living, residents won't have to worry about maintenance, mowing, or other chores associated with home ownership. Because independent living communities are intended for older adults who need little or no assistance, most do not offer medical care or supervision. You'll find many social programs and community amenities, such as gardening, bridge, bingo, fitness programs, book clubs, and planned outings. Continuing care retirement communities (CCRC) provide a complete care platform, from independent living to assisted living to skilled nursing care. In-home care is ready when you or a loved one needs it. Care professionals come to you. This choice is perfect for those who prefer to stay in their homes but who need some help with the daily activities of living. Available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, services are paid by the client or by a variety of public and private sources, such as Medicare and/or Medicaid. Home care provides a variety of medical and non-medical support services. There are two types of home care providers. The first is a skilled service provider, usually licensed nurses and therapists, who can meet various medical concerns or rehabilitation needs. The second, more common, type of in-home care is supplied by an aide who can provide companionship and emotional support as well as assist with daily activities, including grooming, meal prep, and transportation. For seniors who prefer to stay in their own homes where it's familiar, in-home care allows them to stay indepedent. For seniors who need continuous, long-term medical support or short-term rehabilitation, nursing homes are a good option. The level of care depends on the medical needs of each resident, but typically residents receive nursing support and daily assistance with the activities of living, such as bathing, grooming, and dressing. Most residents share a room, with nutritious meals offered in a central dining room. An activity director plans an activity and events plan to nurture mental, physical, and social well-being. Assisted living offers help as necessary, with the goal of supplying the support required to stay as self-reliant as possible.
