The community, which is located at 701 E. Mazon in Dwight, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.
"We invite you to come and learn about a program that is helping many older adults enjoy books and many magazines," says Becky Gish, Resident Services Coordinator for Heritage Woods of Dwight. The program is not just for those who are blind or those who have significant visual impairment.
