Heritage Place is a privately owned seniors’ housing village offering Independent and Assisted Living Services to Seniors over 65.
Seniors who move in to Heritage Place early in their memory decline adjust very well to their new surroundings compared to seniors who wait until they are in crisis before moving. The ideal is for a senior to move in on an independent basis and then contract from a full menu of assisted living services as and when needed. Decisions are left to the public health system if a senior doesn’t make his/her own decision about future housing and health care before a crisis develops.
What sets Heritage Place apart from publicly funded Assisted Living facilities?
1. Heritage Place welcomes seniors with mild-moderate dementia. Government subsidized Assisted Living facilities no longer admit seniors with dementia.
2. Couples may stay together living at Heritage Place if one spouse can make decisions for the other one with dementia. Couples are often separated in the public health system.
3. Seniors living at Heritage Place usually never have to move again. Seniors living in an Independent Living facility may have to move again for more care.
4. Heritage Place will advocate for a senior’s end of life wishes. Seniors may continue to live at Heritage Place when deemed palliative, ending their life’s journey in their own home.
5. Heritage Place staff is trained to bring every resident back to the most independent that he/she can be. Residents at Heritage Place receive care and attention tailored to their needs, preferences, cultural and religious beliefs.
The following hospitality package is included in the monthly rent at Heritage Place.
Self-serve breakfast and home cooked evening meal
