Heritage Woods of Bolingbrook 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 Feb. 28.

“Since the beginning, Heritage Woods of Bolingbrook 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 Bolingbrook 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 opening its doors.

Heritage Woods also has a significant impact on the local economy and employs more than 50 people.

Much of the success can be attributed to the people who work at Heritage Woods of Bolingbrook.

During the celebration, the community will honor employees who have been with the community for the past decade: Dietary Manager Marleah Johnson-Cage, Dietary Aide Elizabeth Ramirez and Housekeeper Olivia Villegas.

Joan Schmitz, a resident who has lived at Heritage Woods since the building opened, will be honored as well.

Heritage Woods of Bolingbrook combines residential apartment home living with the availability of personal assistance, help with medications and a variety of convenience and support services.

“We provide a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home,” explained Joli Koch, the regional director of operations for Heritage Woods of Bolingbrook and other Gardant-managed communities in the northwest Chicago suburbs.

Residents live in private apartments that they furnish and decorate to their tastes. Each of the studio and one-bedroom floor plans includes a kitchenette, spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, individually controlled heating and air conditioning, and emergency alert system.

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 Koch.

Heritage Woods of Bolingbrook is fully certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living Program. Gardant Management Solutions is the largest provider of affordable assisted living in Illinois and the 10th largest provider in the nation.
