Heritage Woods of Rockford Affordable Assisted Living Community is Celebrating Its 10th Anniversary
Date:10/9/2017

Heritage Woods of Rockford, an affordable assisted living community, is celebrating 10 years of service to area seniors and their families with an anniversary party from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Oct. 12.

“Since the beginning, Heritage Woods has established itself as the premier affordable assisted living community,” said Rod Burkett, CEO of Gardant Management Solutions, the company that has managed the community since it opened in 2007. “With the opportunity for seniors to live with dignity in their own apartments and receive the assistance they need, we are proud to say we continue to set the standard for assisted living in Winnebago County.”

Over the past decade, Heritage Woods has spent more than 5 million minutes touching lives and providing love, compassion and care for residents. The community has served more than 500 families since it opened its doors.

Heritage Woods also has a significant impact on the local economy and employs more than 60 people.

Much of the success can be attributed to the people who work at Heritage Woods.

During the celebration, the community will honor longtime employees, including Angie Juarez, a housekeeper; Randy McDougall, Director of Environmental Services; Yvonne Peterson, Director of Marketing and Sales; and Crystal Whitely, a dietary aide.

Special celebration guests will include Tiana McCall, constituent liaison for U.S. Congresswoman Cheri Bustos, Rep. Joe Sosnowski, Sen. Steve Stadelman and Wester Wuori, chief of staff for Mayor Tom McNamara.

Entertainment will be provided by Harlan Jefferson.

Heritage Woods of Rockford combines residential apartment home living with the availability of personal assistance, help with medications and a variety of convenience and support services.

“We provide a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home,” explained Heritage Woods Administrator Jaclyn O'Keefe.

Residents live in private apartments that they furnish and decorate to their tastes. Each of the studio, one- bedroom and two-bedroom floor plans includes a kitchenette, spacious bathroom with shower and grab bars, individually-controlled heating and air conditioning, and emergency alert system.

Certified nursing assistants, working under the direction of a licensed nurse, are on-duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Meals, housekeeping and laundry are among the included services.

“Residents also benefit from all of the opportunities that are available to socialize with friends and neighbors and participate in activities and special programs,” said O'Keefe.

Heritage Woods of Rockford is fully certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program. Gardant Management Solutions is the largest provider of assisted living in Illinois and the 12th largest provider in the nation.
