Review for Heatherwood Community
I would say overall we are very satisfied with our choice of Heatherwood. We choose it because of its location, so close to family, the lower cost to other communities we reviewed, and that it checked off many of our desired requirements.

Highly recommend!!
My parents moved into Heatherwood a month ago and I could not be more thankful for the wonderful staff here. The apartments and common areas are lovely, the food is healthy and delicious, the facility is so clean and well maintained, but above all else it is all the people who work here who truly make a difference. From the admin team and clinical staff to all those working tirelessly behind the scenes, they are truly kind and caring and work so hard to make all the residents feel at home and well-cared for. Thank you for all you do; I am so grateful my parents moved here.

Warm and Welcoming
So far this has been sufficient since my loved one after moving in to the community. The staff isn't always responding promptly to the residents call buttons. It would be nice to have management have a discussion with the staff about responding to the call buttons in a timely manner. Overall it has been a great experience for us.

Incredibly caring staff
Everyone at Heatherwood is genuinely lovely and caring. From the dining staff to the housekeeping team to the nursing staff, everyone ensures that the residents are treated with dignity and respect. There is a wide variety of activities, like the always popular bingo, cardio drumming, and lifetime learning classes taught by professors and other experts. On-site physical therapy and spa services, as well as bus transportation to appointments, makes Heatherwood a very convenient place to live.

Ups and downs
The administration staff has completely changed and they have had trouble keeping good help. The residents are all lovely and the servers are great. The nursing care has been pretty good and consistent as well, but the CNAs change constantly. It is practically a whole new staff. There have been ups and downs during our experience so far, but in general my loved one seems to be happy here. He loves the gym and the exercise classes that they provide.

about Heatherwood Community

Heatherwood Community offers Studio, 1 Bedroom and 2 Bedrooms. Learn more.

A Place for Mom has scored Heatherwood Community 9.8 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
