Touching Lives

Dorris' Story:
I love it here
I've lived here for 8 years. I love it here!

Everyone works hard to keep me happy and healthy. Every department has a wonderful staff. I do activities like yoga and bingo with the Resident Services Coordinator. I have physical therapy with rehab too. The kitchen staff is great. I tell the girls who bring my food that they are my kitchen angels. It's just so nice. I enjoy it here, and everything they do is good.

Anita's Story:
I completely recommend it here
I really am happy I'm here!

I know my kids don't have to worry about me. The staff will approach me and ask how I'm doing, and I just can't explain how wonderful that makes me feel. I completely recommend it here. I used to live in South Elgin, and I used to pass by Heritage Woods. My kids would say, "Someday, you're going to be there." Well, that someday came, and I'm not sorry one bit.
