A place that cares for seniors should be 3 things:

  1. Be fewer than 20 residents
  2. Be family owned
  3. Should be family centered and oriented

The Heathers achieves each of these criteria to a remarkable degree surpassing other competitors we toured.  It is truly an excellent home with caring and wonderful people.

Our mom moved into The Heathers Senior Homes in December 2022 and it has been truly a blessing.  The home is beautiful and the attention to detail and design provide a safe environment while still very warm and homey.

The caregivers, nursing staff and the rest of the folks are all wonderful and mom always says how nice everyone is.  They communicate and keep us updated and send pictures of mom.  They have great activity schedule and fun-themed meals/days.  Mom always looks nice and especially loves that they do her nails every week.

The Heathers has taken off the care giving responsibility and let us be a family again.  Visits with mom are great whether we hang out at the home, go to bingo or run to the store.  Our situation was difficult as we moved mom from Arizona to Illinois and I was always worried if I made the right decision...I don't wonder anymore because mom is thriving.

We had our mom at 3 other places.  Nothing compares to The Heathers.  The staff took care of her as if she was their own.  The house is well maintained, clean and really is homey compared to the "big" places.  We cannot say enough about the care she received and the trust we had in the staff.

I have been a resident with my wife since last year.  What I appreciate the most is the individual attention of each member of the staff gives to each resident.  The home is great and any requests are immediately responded to.  The food served is excellent and well balanced.  We toured and looked at seven different homes before choosing The Heathers and this is the best place for us.

My brother, Mike has been living at The Heathers for 3 months now and we could not have found a better place for him to be.  The warm home environment and the caring staff they have make him feel like he never left his house.  It truly is a family environment and they make everyone feel right at home.

In anticipation of the Ringwood-based home opening for occupancy, The Heathers have been caring for my 89 year old mother. We are proud to say she will be Resident #1 in the home! During this time their caregiver has given amazing care and Mom just loves her. We have also had multiple visits by owners, management, and medical staff. In conjunction with a visiting Advocate nurse, The Heather’s staff has been able to turn around a Stage 2 pressure wound in record time! They also are super diligent about making sure that the various treatments align with the medical situation... My Mom reacted poorly to a new medication prescribed by her primary care physician who had not seen her in 8 months. The Heathers care partner sounded the alarm and convinced Mom to give up the medication. The new medicine was obviously messing with her entire system. The Heathers Care Partner brought in their Lead Medical person for confirmation and worked with me (the family) on the next steps.

I had the pleasure of attending an open house at The Heathers Senior Living. I have to say that I was more than pleasantly surprised with my emotion. I have been in this industry for over 25 years and have been marketing to senior living facilities; independent, assisted and skilled nursing. I have come to not set my expectations very high regarding atmosphere and care.
I say my emotion overcame me because I was greeted by a village of family members. This is a family run and operated business. The concept I learned surrounding the idea behind opening the Heathers was built on their grandmother being in an independent facility. There they had a good experience but felt it lacked the “family atmosphere”. This is what The Heathers has definitely fostered.
The buildings are well rounded. The atmosphere is warming and serene. I would recommend The Heathers because for me I feel like it is “La Familia-a place I can call home."
