At 94, Pete has so many stories to share, including his favorite one where his high school sweetheart waited to marry him until he returned from war. Since he moved to our community, we have been fortunate to hear about the two things this World War II veteran loves: his wife and his country.


Heritage Woods of Benton has given Linda a chance to focus on what matters. Her new carefree lifestyle allows her to do more of what she loves. Now, Linda is able to make a difference in our community by volunteering at a nearby elementary school several times a week.




Nestled next to a wooded area just east of Franklin Hospital in Benton, Illinois, the community is designed to serve adults 65 and older of all incomes who may need some help to maintain their independence.

Heritage Woods is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living Program and serves as a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home. The community especially benefits seniors who cannot afford private pay assisted living.

Gardant Management Solutions, the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois, has managed Heritage Woods of Benton since it opened in August 2004.

Especially Designed for You

Our community combines residential apartment home living with the availability of personal assistance, support services and opportunities for residents to enjoy the companionship of friends and neighbors and to participate in social events and programs.

The two-story building houses 100 apartments, each with its own kitchenette, bathroom with shower, and emergency alert system. Studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom floor plans are available.

The building layout consists of four-corridors that meet in the middle, where a variety of community areas are available for residents and their families to enjoy. Elevators provide convenient access to and from the second floor.

The exterior of the building features two lovely porches on either side of the canopied-covered front entrance as well as a patio off the dining room.

Certified nurses assistants are on-duty around-the-clock to provide the personal assistance needed by residents. They work under the direction of the community’s licensed nursing staff.

Support services, including three daily meals, housekeeping and laundry, are included in a surprisingly affordable monthly fee.

The emphasis at Heritage Woods of Benton is on providing residents with the dignity they deserve and on helping each resident maintain as much independence as possible for as long as possible.
