Heritage Woods of South Elgin Affordable Assisted Lifestyle Community Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Heritage Woods of South Elgin celebrated 10 years of service to area seniors and their families with an anniversary party that was held this afternoon.

The affordable assisted lifestyle community, which is located at 700 N. McLean Boulevard, opened in the summer of 2009. The campus also offers memory care at White Oaks at Heritage Woods of South Elgin and White Oaks at Spring Street.

“Since the beginning, our South Elgin campus has established itself as the premier assisted living and memory care community in the northwest Chicago suburbs,” said Rod Burkett, CEO of Gardant Management Solutions, the company that manages the community. “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 the South Elgin area.”

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 hundreds of families since opening its doors.

Heritage Woods also has a significant impact on the local economy and employs more than 100 people.

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

During the celebration, the community recognized two employees who have been with the community since it opened: David Yaeger, Director of Maintenance, and Felicia Patterson, a housekeeper.

Therese Cihlar, Billy McNair, Lari McNair, Doris Olson, Barbara Papenhause and Michael Pump – residents who have lived at Heritage Woods for the past decade – were honored as well.

Heritage Woods 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 Martin Bukacek, Regional Director of Operations for Gardant Management Solutions.

Residents live in private apartments that they furnish and decorate to their tastes. Each of the studio and one-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 Bukacek.

Heritage Woods of South Elgin is fully certified to operate through the Illinois Department of Public Health. Gardant Management Solutions is the10th largest provider in the nation.

Gardant also manages the Heritage Woods assisted living communities in Batavia, Bolingbrook, Chicago, Huntley, McHenry and Yorkville.
