November is National Gratitude Month. It is a time to reflect on what we are grateful for; a time to celebrate and give thanks for our many blessings.
Throughout the month, we are posting Blogs that feature the thoughts on gratitude from residents of the senior living, assisted living, supportive living, and memory care communities Gardant operates.
In today’s Blog, we feature expressions of gratitude from residents of Heritage Woods of McHenry.
Located in McHenry County, Illinois, Heritage Woods is an affordable assisted living community that serves adults 65 and older who need some help to maintain their independence.
The community is fully certified to participate in the Illinois Supportive Living program so can serve low-income individuals who are on or who would qualify for Medicaid.
Earlier this year, Heritage Woods of McHenry was recognized by U.S. News & World Report as being one of the best assisted living communities in the United States. It was the first Gardant communities to be awarded the Silver Quality award by the National Center for Assisted Living. The NCAL quality awards program is based on the framework of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Awards program for excellence.
