Bradley, Illinois (PRWEB) November 18, 2013
Heritage Woods of Rockford, a BMA affordable assisted living community, is partnering with Heartland Hospice to host a remembrance service at 2 p.m. on Nov. 19.
The community, which is located at 202 N. Show Place Dr. in Rockford, Illinois, serves older adults of all incomes, including those on Medicaid, who need some help to maintain their independence.
As the holidays approach and the year comes to a close, Heritage Woods invited the Heartland staff to help people prepare for what can be a difficult and emotional time of year.
“Our remembrance service is a great opportunity to share your experiences and learn about resources to help you recall special memories and rebuild your life,” said Director of Marketing Yvonne Peterson.
