Celebrating Labor Day & Seniors

Many of us associate Labor Day with nothing more than an extra day off school or work, a plethora of mattress sales, or maybe just one more day at the swimming pool. Once Labor Day comes, the season of autumn is only a few short weeks away, and our minds invariably turn to the promise of falling leaves, football season and the start of something ne...

RESTORE Therapy is a comprehensive therapy program that addresses a wide variety of injuries, illnesses and diagnoses that seniors encounter.

Pulmonary and Cardiac Therapy treatments with RESTORE focus on patients with cardiac or pulmonary conditions, building up the patient’s stamina and endurance, so they can become stronger.

Respite Care Services at Heritage Health

Respite Care Services at Heritage Health

Caring for a loved one at home can be a rewarding experience. It can also be exhausting for the caregiver, both mentally and physically. That is why Heritage Health provides Respite Care services at our facilities throughout Illinois.

 

Respite Care means that a caregiver can admit their loved one to our homes for a short stay, allowing the caregiver time to rest, relax and recharge. Taking time for themselves is an important part of providing care for another person. Without the opportunity to care for themselves, a caregiver can become burned out, frustrated and unable to provide the care their loved one is counting on. Respite Care gives family members the chance to focus on themselves, and take care of things in their own lives that may need attention.

Wellness Community in Indianapolis

Wellness Community in Indianapolis

Since 1963, Heritage Enterprises has provided skilled nursing care to seniors who were unable to care for themselves. Seniors and their families have relied on our expertise, compassion and dedication for more than 50 years. Today, healthcare is much different than it was in the 1960s, and we are proud to say we are also changing and adapting to the needs and wants of the Baby Boomer generation. At Heritage, we keep a close eye on changes in the healthcare field to ensure we continue to provide the care that seniors want, all the while meeting their medical needs and keeping them healthy.

 

One of the ways Heritage is ahead of the curve is with our first Wellness Community, located in Indianapolis. Evergreen Crossing & The Lofts, which opened in October of 2014, provides two levels of care: short-term therapy (also known as transitional care), and assisted living apartments. Evergreen Crossing’s RESTORE Therapy services offer aggressive, short-term therapy for seniors recovering from surgery or an illness.Patients stay in luxury accommodations, including restaurant-style dining and concierge services.

RESTORE is the comprehensive therapy program that provides respiratory, physical, occupational and speech therapy to seniors who have suffered an injury or illness, and need help to regain their strength, endurance and skills. The goal of RESTORE Therapy is to provide seniors with the confidence and tools they need to live as independently as possible. Returning seniors to their families and the comfort of their homes is what we strive for every day.

 

RESTORE’s speech therapy programs include therapy for dysphagia (swallowing) as well as neurological deficits including Parkinson’s disease. RESTORE actually employs both physical therapy and speech therapy regimens to patients with Parkinson’s disease, as both the ability to walk and to speak clearly are affected by this disease.

A Heritage Of Care

A Heritage Of Care

A lot can happen in 50 years. Businesses open to great fanfare, and often they close. Friends and neighbors come and go as life takes them on new adventures. But some things remain the same. Some things continue to grow and thrive, and over the course of 50 years, make a substantial impact on their communities like no other. That is the case for Heritage Health facilities throughout the state of Illinois.

 

In the early 1960s, a new trend in how to care for seniors was sweeping the nation. It was nationally recognized that the practice of converting old homes into nursing centers was not safe or conducive to providing proper care for the elderly. A newly formed company, Bloomington-based Heritage Enterprises, was on the cutting edge of this trend, building nursing facilities that were safer and designed to more appropriately address the needs of seniors. The first Heritage Health (then named Heritage Manor) opened in Bloomington in 1963, and additional Heritage facilities soon opened in Streator, Peru and Gibson City. For 50 years, providing dignified and high quality nursing care has been our mission and life’s work.
