...thanks again for all your team did for (my mom) while she was there.  I'm so grateful that she was well cared for and has a very good taste in her mouth about her experience.  She even liked the food!  Her care team of nurses, aides, therapy, and such all treated her very well.

Forget all the stereotypes of nursing homes - this place rocks! The food is good, everything is spic and span, concern for safety and infection control - no shortcuts. Every single encounter with ever staff was caring, competent, compassionate. The therapist treated us (family members) like we were part of the team and was interested in our success. God bless them!

...the nurses and staff are extremely dedicated to each resident. I was blessed to have my mother experience their loving care. In fact, I saw my mother bloom during her stay at Heritage. It was so sweet when I realized that most of the staff, lovingly called her Grandma. My love and everlasting thanks to each of you.
