Heritage Woods

Heritage Woods of Freeport provides the assistance you need to maintain the independence you desire. Our affordable assisted lifestyle community lets you leave behind the worries of home ownership and living alone.



Designed for adults 65 and older who need some help to maintain their independence, Heritage Woods is located on more than five acres of property on the southwest corner of West Pearl City Road and south Forest Road in Freeport.

Heritage Woods of Freeport is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living Program, which enables the community to serve older adults of all income levels.

The community was developed through a partnership between Gardant Management Solutions, the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois, and the Stephenson County Nursing Center Foundation. 

Especially Designed for You

Heritage Woods of Freeport combines residential apartment home living with personal assistance, support services and opportunities to enjoy the companionship of friends and neighbors and participate in a variety of social, educational and recreational activities.

The two-story building houses 76 studio and one-bedroom apartments, each with its own kitchenette, private bathroom with shower, and emergency alert system. Community areas include an activity room, beauty/barber shop, convenience store, dining room, exercise area, library, multi-purpose room, outdoor patio and television lounge.


A Wonderful and Affordable Alternative

Our community provides a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to those struggling alone at home. 

Among the services included in the surprisingly affordable monthly fee are three restaurant-style meals each day, plus snacks; housekeeping and laundry services; health monitoring; nursing assessments; help with medications, and assistance with activities of daily living.

Financial assistance is available for those who do not have the resources to afford the monthly fee. Older adults who are on Medicaid or who only receive Social Security benefits can qualify for residency.

The emphasis at our community is on providing residents with the Love, Compassion & Dignity they deserve and on helping each resident maintain as much independence as possible for as long as possible.
