"Our compassionate staff strives to provide resident centered care with dignity and respect."
Opened in 1965, Heritage Health - Peru was one of the original facilities built by Heritage Enterprises. With additions being completed in 1967, 1974, and 1981, our facility now includes 129 beds. As a Medicare Certified Program, we offer physical, occupational, and speech therapies to our residents. Once in the middle of a cornfield, our facility is now close to two main thoroughfares in the LaSalle-Peru area, but we still maintain a neighborhood atmosphere.
"We have been committed to providing quality care to the Illinois Valley for the past 50 years," says Administrator Susan Morris.Our facility's dedicated staff works hard to provide for the needs and wants of our residents. We form strong relationships with our residents, which is just one aspect of the home-like atmosphere we provide. Our reputation in the community remains high because of the excellent care we provide, as well as our great track record with our residents - one half of the people who enter our facility go home because of our heavy focus on therapy services. We are truly a customer-oriented facility.
Heritage Health - Peru offers both respite care and hospice care (contracted through Illinois Valley Community Hospital and St. Margaret's Hospices) to our residents.
We also provide wireless internet service for guest and visitor use.
