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.

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.
