Heritage Woods is the only senior living community in Hamilton County that is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program. The community is managed by BMA Management, Ltd., the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois.
"The community provides seniors with a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home," says Kelly Webb, Director of Marketing at Heritage Woods of McLeansboro.
Residents benefit from the opportunity to live in a residential apartment-home environment and receive the personal assistance and help with medications they need.
Each of the apartments features a kitchenette, spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, and an emergency alert system.
Certified nursing assistants 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 no matter what the weather and to participate in a variety of activities and special events, says Webb.
“Our focus is to provide residents with the love, compassion and dignity that they deserve in addition to the care and assistance that they need,” she says. “Our emphasis is on helping each resident to achieve and maintain as much independence as possible for as long as possible.”
