Heritage Woods of Moline is celebrating 10 years of service to area seniors and their families with an anniversary party from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 12.
The celebration will take place at the community, which is located at 5500 46th Ave. Dr. in Moline.
Guest speakers will include Moline Mayor Stephanie Acri and Quad City Chamber of Commerce Interim CEO Kristin Glass.
“Since the beginning, Heritage Woods of Moline has established itself as the premier affordable assisted lifestyle community,” said Rod Burkett, CEO of Gardant Management Solutions, the company that manages the community. “With the opportunity for seniors to live with dignity in their own apartments and receive the assistance they need, we are proud to say we continue to set the standard for assisted living in the Moline area.”
Over the past decade, Heritage Woods has spent more than 5 million minutes touching lives and providing love, compassion and care for residents. The community has served more than 500 families since it opened its doors.
Heritage Woods also has a significant impact on the local economy and employs nearly 50 people.
Much of the success can be attributed to the people who work at Heritage Woods of Moline.
During the celebration, the community will honor employees who have been with the community for the past decade, including Resident Services Coordinator Amy Fisher, Receptionist Donna Howell and Cook Linda Maher.
Two residents – Betty Burns and Kay Wolber – who have lived at Heritage Woods since the building opened will be honored as well.
Heritage Woods of Moline combines residential apartment home living with the availability of personal assistance, help with medications and a variety of convenience and support services.

Certified nursing assistants, working under the direction of a licensed nurse, are on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Meals, housekeeping and laundry are among the included services.
“Residents also benefit from all of the opportunities that are available to socialize with friends and neighbors and participate in activities and special programs,” said Steward.
