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 Freeport.
Located in north central Illinois, Freeport serves as the country seat for Stephenson County.
Heritage Woods of Freeport is an affordable assisted living community for adults 65 years of age and older who need some help to maintain their independence. The community is fully certified to participate in the Illinois Supportive Living program.
Heritage Woods was recognized by the National Center for Assisted Living (NCAL) with a national quality award. The NCAL quality awards program is based on the framework of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Awards program for excellence.
