The community is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program, which is designed to provide older adults and adults with physical disabilities with an apartment-style alternative to a nursing home. The emphasis of the program is on personal choice, dignity, privacy and individuality.
“Residents benefit from living in a residential environment and receiving personal assistance and help with medications,” says Peg Spear, Director of Marketing for Heritage Woods of Dwight.
Private studio and one-bedroom apartments are available. Each of the apartments feature a kitchenette, spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, individually-controlled heating and air conditioning, and an emergency alert system.
Certified nursing assistants are on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. All three meals each day, 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 to participate in social activities and special programs such as the upcoming baseball lunch,” says Spear.
