"Families trust us because we see to their loved ones' needs and concerns immediately."
In 2005, Barton W. Stone - located in a quiet, residential setting in Jacksonville, Illinois - became a part of the Heritage Health family of nursing facilities. As a multi-level health care community, Heritage Health offers residents a range of care options. From independent living in apartments and cottages to a fully licensed nursing facility, residents can balance the type of care they need and the independence they desire.
"We offer a full range of care to our residents," says Administrator Mike Schneider. "Our staff provides excellent care, and families trust us because we see to their loved ones' needs and concerns immediately. We have a long-standing reputation in the community as an excellent long-term care provider."
Heritage Health offers residents five living options, including: independent living, sheltered and residential care, intermediate care, skilled care, and specialized care for patients with dementia. The friendly and caring staff provides all of the residents with a home-like, family atmosphere, making each resident feel comfortable.
Heritage Health is a Medicare Certified facility and offers both Respite and Hospice Care. Other services include physical, occupational, and speech therapies, diet and nutrition services, and a full range of activities for all residents. There is wireless internet service available for guest and visitor use.
We are also proud to offer Shelter Care at Heritage Health. Shelter Care is a healthcare living option for seniors that allows them to live in a small community of other seniors who also enjoy a more independent lifestyle but have the security of knowing that if they should need additional assistance, the resources are nearby. Nurses are available to help in emergencies, and assistance with daily living tasks is available.
