'When one visits Heatherwood, the first thing that one notices is the upbeat, happy atmosphere. The staff greet you with a smile. Heatherwood has a great feel. This is pretty remarkable, given that Heatherwood specializes in caring for residents with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. Heatherwood is a family owned memory care community in downtown Walnut Creek. It is a large enough community (32 beds) to support a robust memory care program and a full time activity staff. Heatherwood is small enough, that the staff get to know every resident very well. This allows Heatherwood to provide a highly individualized care plan. Heatherwood is doing something very right for memory care. If I ever get dementia, this is where I want to be placed.' Dan M., Walnut Creek, CA. January 21, 2016

'My husband has been at Heatherwood for 2 1/2 years and I couldn't be happier. He was at a corporate owned facility before, and the care and concern were nothing compared to Heatherwood. The staff REALLY care about the residents. The food is homemade, varied and plentiful. Activities are always going on and appropriate to the residents. Management helps guide you through all the different aspects of caring for a memory impaired person. Also, the management support the families in making the difficult choices that come up in caring for our loved ones. I would recommend Heatherwood to any family dealing with a loved one with memory issues.' Terri H., Livermore, CA. January 21, 2016

'My husband passed away at Heatherwood on Christmas Day 2014 after residing there for 6 months. I cannot praise the caregivirs highly enough. He received such wonderful care while he was there. The staff was so very caring and helpful. I would highly recommend Heatherwood for anyone requiring care for a dementia patient and especially during the latter stages.' Carol G., Walnut Creek, CA, March 1, 2015

'I have always appreciated the loving care Heatherwood team have provided. They care about how each resident has been and how to help them smile today. I have referred many happy families. And today Amy agreed to work with our referral business YEAH!!! Thank you Amy!' Shirley M. Walnut Creek, CA, February 24, 2015

'My mom has been here for over two years after things not working out in two prior locations. Amy and the folks at Heatherwood are awesome. Even my mom's doctor tells me how impressed he is with the care my mother receives. They are able to handle the most challenging situations and have a loyal and dedicated staff.' Gabriela O., Alamo, CA, November 7, 2014

'My mother lived at Heatherwood Alzheimer's Assisted Living for 3 1/2 years. They took great care of her and helped us through the Alzheimer's journey. Thank you Heatherwood.' Dawna D., November 13, 2015, Walnut Creek, CA

'The facilities are beautiful, and very much like a home environment. I always enjoy each visit to Heatherwood as I see staff caring for patience, and enjoying each patient, treating each patient with high regard. I also enjoy seeing the entertainment organized for all to patients. I know all this first hand as my Father in law was graciously, and lovingly well taken care of at Heatherwood, and we as his family were taken great care of as well. We were always given an update of how our Dad was doing, and given counsel to our next best steps to help him, and in the end how to keep him comfortable. We as a family have high regard for Heatherwood Memory Care, the staff, and the overall facilities!!!' Kelly M. September 30, 2014, Walnut Creek, CA

'Great place. My Mom was a resident at Heatherwood for 10 years. She had the best care ever. Thank you Moris and Amy and all the wonderful staff for taking such great care of her. She lived to be 100 years and 7 months.' Carol B., Walnut Creek, CA, September 30, 2014


  • I liked that this community used a charting system to help care for the residents.!!!

    They had a chart showing a fall risk that the caregivers can take around to check on the residents. Once they checked on them they entered a code and their initials to show they did check on them. The people...
