Our Services

Heritage Square offers a continuum of quality care to seniors. Individuals can choose independent housing in a duplex; they can receive assisted care in the sheltered living unit; or they can live in our Health Care Center, staffed by Skilled Nursing Personnel around the clock.

Wide Range of Housing Options Available
Our range of housing options allows seniors and their family members to determine which type of living arrangement will best meet the resident’s lifestyle needs. And we continually adapt and accommodate to the changing needs of our residents, helping individuals move from one unit to another – from sheltered care living to the skilled nursing unit if they need additional care – so that they receive the care they need without being uprooted from their familiar and comfortable surroundings. Individuals needing more care can retain their room in the sheltered care area if they need to move to the Healthcare Center on a temporary basis.

Family and friends are encouraged to visit residents.

Visiting hours are from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. The main entrance door is locked at 8:00 p.m. To enter after 8:00 p.m., use the buzzer at the main entrance, north parking lot or the north entrance near the resident parking area.

If a resident has a guest leave after 8:00 p.m., he/she should notify the staff that the guest is leaving the building. Special circumstances for visiting may be discussed with the Social Services Director.

A guest room offers overnight accommodations for out-of-town visitors. If there is a room available in Sheltered Care, a guest of a resident may arrange to stay by contacting the Social Services Director. There is no fee for this service, but donations are accepted.
