You may have noticed that change has been in the air over the last few months at Heritage Woods of Yorkville, and it is all for the better!

Because our community is home to amazing residents, we always want it to be warm and welcoming. Both residents and families consistently rank the home-like environment as one of our best qualities, which is exactly what we are aiming for at Heritage Woods.

This spring, we participated in an outdoor beautification contest. Hanging baskets, container gardens, new shrubs, and flower beds now bloom around our community. Residents planted their own garden plots in the center of the patio area. Vegetables, herbs, tomatoes and a variety of vibrant flowers now grace our relaxing sitting area and walking path.

We are honored and excited to have been awarded first prize in this contest of more than 60 properties from across six states. Gardant Management Solutions, our management company, presented a prize of $300 to our activities program and hosted a pizza party for all residents and staff. It was such a fun event!

As we move slowly closer to fall, you’ll notice changes inside as well. The lobby and front desk area have received a fresh coat of paint and new curtains. Beautiful, durable new flooring has been installed in our dining room — with more changes to come!

Like any home, little changes make big differences.

Watch for more changes over the coming year, and thank you for letting us welcome you and your loved ones home.
