Life is About Choices. Exciting New Choices Await You Every Day at Heritage Pointe!
While it may be difficult for some folks to think about moving to a senior living community, there are many benefits right now to start making that decision.
A Social Life
Participating in shared activities and engaging with their peers socially are the main reasons seniors choose to move to Heritage Pointe. Every day our event calendar is full. This gives seniors lots of opportunities to stay active and socialize within the community. Research has shown that socializing with friends improves your health, including physical and emotional wellness. After the pandemic, its more clear than ever the toll of isolation. At Heritage Pointe, a team of Activities staff plan each week full of diverse and entertaining programs. Best of all, we encourage residents to participate and even lead new activities.
Excellent and delicious nutrition should be a part of every seniors’ daily experience. Heritage Pointe offers a rotating menu, filled with dishes that are flavorful, nutritious, and a delight to eat. We can accommodate specialty diets, including low-sodium, Kosher, heart-healthy, and pureed diets. Residents enjoy three meals a day in the main Dining Room, where wait staff offer daily specials, personalized service, and restaurant-style dining.
On-site Fitness and Physical Therapy
A senior’s mobility is often linked to their physical and emotional wellbeing. A senior may become depressed or anxious after a recent fall or injury. Heritage Pointe offers multiple daily fitness classes, led by accredited personal trainers, group walks, a personalized fitness plan, and scheduled assistance if requested. There is also a physical therapist on site if needed, and the senior-friendly fitness center promotes a healthy lifestyle for all residents.
While many senior communities, including Heritage Pointe, have everything on-site, there are times when residents want to run outside errands. Having a car is not needed, and most seniors can stop worrying that they will miss having one. But many freedoms come with senior living, not to mention freedom from car insurance and monthly payments! Heritage Pointe has a weekly transportation schedule, as well as a fleet of bus/van/car options for residents. Trips to doctor offices, banks, the mall, the drugstore, and more are available every week for free. Volunteers are also available to help residents navigate medical buildings to get you where you need to go. Weekly outings to restaurants, concerts, and events add to the social atmosphere of a lively senior community.
Retirement and Inflation
The cost of goods and services to maintain a senior’s home and healthy lifestyle continue to climb. Now, more than ever, it is important to secure a safe and comfortable home for a senior to age in place. Many seniors live in too-large homes with stairs, steps, thick rugs, or other potential fall risks. Sadly, some seniors move to a retirement community after a recent fall or other injury. The best time for seniors to decide where to live is when the decision is their choice, and at their timing. Heritage Pointe is a rental community, so there is no costly buy-in like other communities. The monthly rent includes all utilities, phone, cable, transportation, Wi-Fi, emergency alert system, weekly housekeeping and linen services, and three kosher meals served daily.
