Aging & Our Sense of Smell

Our sense of smell is one of our five senses. It is an important sense that can help alert us to potential threats: gas leaks, rotten food or the smell of a fire. It is also closely tied to parts of the brain that process memories and emotions. Like music, particular smells can trigger good or bad memories. Like many things that change as we age, o...

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.
