A VIP Preview Party and Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony was held for Heritage Woods of Newburgh, a new affordable assisted lifestyle community for older adults that opened in September.

The invitation-only event was held on September 10, at the community, which is located at 4211 Grimm Road in Newburgh, Indiana. The community is built on several acres of land and features a full spectrum of services to help older adults embrace their independence.

This multimillion-dollar development is designed for seniors of all incomes who need some help to maintain their independence. Residents are expected to move in as early as September 2020.

“We will be providing older adults with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home,” said Heritage Woods Administrator Diadree Jolly.

As an affordable assisted living facility, Heritage Woods will make assisted living a realistic option for seniors who have been unable to afford this type of community in the past. The community will combine residential apartment-home living with the availability of personal assistance, medication administration and a variety of convenience and support services, such as meals, housekeeping, laundry and transportation.

Residents live in private apartments that they will furnish and decorate to their tastes. Each of the apartments features a kitchenette, spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, individually controlled heating and air conditioning and emergency alert system.

In addition, Heritage Woods offers several areas for residents to enjoy, including a recreation room/theater, private dining room, lounges, fitness center, activity room, library/computer room and other amenities.

Certified nursing assistants, working under the direction of a licensed nurse, will be on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“Residents also will benefit from all of the opportunities that will be available to socialize with friends and neighbors and to participate in activities and special programs,” says Jolly.

Newburgh AL Developer, LLC is excited to bring one of its high-quality, residential-style affordable assisted living communities to Newburgh and the surrounding areas. Worn Jerabek Wiltse Architects, P.C. designed the community, and construction was completed by Horve Construction, LLC.

“Our focus,” says Rod Burkett, CEO of Gardant Management Solutions, the company that manages the community “is to provide Heritage Woods residents with the love, compassion and dignity they deserve and the help and assistance they need. Our emphasis is on helping each resident achieve and maintain as much independence as possible for as long as possible.”
