Made for Memory Care
Heartwood was strategically developed to provide an environment specifically suited for those living with dementia to optimize safety, independence, and prosperity.
Simple Floor Plan
Advanced research has shown that those living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia thrive in a small, intimate environment, therefore our home-like model lends itself to maintaining each resident’s health, happiness, and freedom of movement. Our floor plan is easy to navigate, promoting independence and a smooth transition for new residents by helping them to get accustomed to their environment.
Individualized, Flexible, and Nutritious Dining
Early birds and night owls alike appreciate the flexibility of our Individualized Dining concept. What’s different about it?
We recognize that people tend to follow their own lifelong natural rhythms for sleeping and eating, which is why our kitchen is always open. In addition to our scheduled meal and snack time options, our flexible dining provides seniors with more choices and personal control over their daily routines by allowing them to dine whenever they please. Additionally, we offer a variety of delicious options to accommodate each resident’s personal preferences and nutritional needs.
To put it simply – our residents eat what they want, when they want it, where they want it.
Heartwood’s Activity Stimulation Program is inspired by the unique sensory needs of Memory Care residents, providing regular opportunities for your loved one to get moving, get social, and engage in simple tasks that stimulate the mind and elevate mood. To ensure everyone experiences the many benefits of this program, we offer a wide range of activities, as seen on our sample Activity Calendar.

Every aspect of Heartwood was designed with memory care in mind. Our facilities provide a secure environment, featuring electronically-monitored exits to help those who may wander. Our safety features continue outside, permitting our residents to enjoy the gaited patio and walking paths as they admire our beautiful garden. Our residential model with centrally located common areas permits residents to relax and feel at home, while allowing staff to provide accessible care and supervision. Not to mention, thanks to a higher staff to resident ratio compared to most Assisted Living communities, residents enjoy individualized attention and care every day at Heartwood.
