Outings and Events with Heritage Community

At Heritage Community, there is always the opportunity to enjoy activity. The Life Enrichment Coordinators for each community design monthly calendars with a series of events at Heritage Community, in Kalamazoo and throughout the surrounding area.
On campuses, there are many ways to connect with other community members: art classes, choir, knitting circles, card-playing clubs, family night potlucks, picnics on the lawn, ballroom dancing lessons, poetry readings, cocktail hour and continuing education opportunities.

In the community at large, our residents frequently enjoy lunches out, evenings at the theater or symphony and trips to behold a South Haven sunset, or spend the day at a county fair. If there is a special event that a Heritage Community member wishes to attend, our Life Enrichment Coordinators are available to help schedule such an event or procure the desired tickets. Here at Heritage Community, it's delightfully easy to continue doing what you love.

Fitness at Heritage Community

Life at Heritage Community is active and dynamic, which is why we encourage and offer a variety of physical wellness classes for our residents.

Cardio Drumming—Heritage Community is known for our cardio drumming program and has presented on it at the International Council of Active Aging. With 25-30 participants to a class, our Cardio-Drumming Course helps you regain and maintain muscle strength while enjoying yourself. Drumming's unique integration of rhythmic patterns releases endorphins and negative feelings while increasing synchronization of brain activity, which in turn provides feelings of euphoria and improved mental awareness. This unique exercise routine promises to have you tapping to the beat.

©Enhance Fitness—©EnhanceFitness promotes a senior-friendly fitness experience intended to promote physical activity among adults at all levels of health and ability. Through this hour-long class three times a week, our nationally-certified staff promotes strengthening, cardiovascular stimulation, mobility, laughter and enjoyment! The program offers individual support for special needs, safety and health challenges as well as periodic fitness checks.

Tai Chi—Tai Chi is a form of athletic movement combined with a series of beautiful and graceful flowing routines. At Heritage Community, our trained Tai Chi instructor leads weekly sessions to help participants restfully increase their flexibility through deep breathing, positive visualization and a rhythmic series of physical postures. This class will leave you feeling energized and invigorated in body, mind and soul.

Rehabilitation at Heritage Community

In addition to our four branches of residential care, Heritage Community's Upjohn Care & Rehabilitation Center also offers rehabilitative services for injuries and surgeries. At the rehabilitation center, each resident or outpatient is assigned a team of therapists. Our therapists discuss with every individual their personal goals and help map out a number of physical and cognitive exercises to ensure those goals are achieved in a timely way. That is what makes the Upjohn Rehabilitation & Care Center so unique—customized care and a comprehensive therapy plan from our in-house staff, tailored to each person's specific needs.

From implementing physical agent modalities and extending range of motion in joints to everyday activities like cooking and cleaning, therapy at the Upjohn Care & Rehabilitation Center is thorough and well integrated. Each therapy plan is paced out—designed so residents experience restored health in body and mind and can enjoy a smooth transition home. Here at the Upjohn Care & Rehabilitation Center, we provide holistic care as we assist you on the journey to wellness through three key kinds of therapy:

Occupational Therapy—covers both basic skills such as eating, bathing and dressing as well as higher-level skills such as washing dishes, cooking and cleaning a house. Therapists work to increase arm strength and movement, balance, coordination, endurance and safety so you can return to normal, daily living at home.

Physical Therapy—includes treatments that utilize heat, cold, massage, exercise, balance activities and ambulation training. The overall goal is to decrease pain and increase strength and function, returning you to your previous level of physical ability.

Speech Therapy—focuses on both issues of swallowing and communicating (talking, hearing or understanding). Sessions range from exercises that strengthen muscles in the mouth and throat to structured activities used to increase problem solving, attention skills and, if necessary, the development of alternative means of communication.

Best Friends™ at Heritage Community

Heritage Community of Kalamazoo is the region’s leading educator in the Best Friends™ Approach. All of our staff are trained in the Best Friends™ Approach to care. This curriculum emphasizes the importance of creating a familiar and safe space for Heritage residents to “be where they are.” Heritage Community trains our entire staff in this internationally-praised curriculum, equipping our caregivers to understand and connect well with all residents, especially those experiencing dementia or Alzheimer’s.

 As Best Friends™ Staff:

  • We empathize, understand and anticipate the needs of our residents.
  • We are equipped with advanced training to navigate the challenges inherently connected to Alzheimer’s disease, including personality changes and/or strange or unsettling behaviors that are often a coping mechanism for someone’s changes in cognition.
  • We recognize and can assist residents who have needs regarding getting dressed properly, knowing when it is time to eat, bathroom assistance or disruption of their normal sleep/waking cycle.
  • We design both structured programming and spontaneous events that bring attention to the arts, music, humor, familiar skills, sensory and physical exercises and conversation. We are prepared to adjust activities to stages of mobility and mental acuity.
  • We create a sense of community and a friendly atmosphere that gives all our community members, especially those with cognitive loss, increased feelings of comfort, a sense of belonging and security.

One of the gifts of being a part of the Heritage community is complete confidence in the care you or your loved one receives. We also offer workshops in some of the Best Friends™ techniques for spouses or home-care organizations in the local area. For more information about scheduling workshops for you or your organization, contact the Heritage Community Memory Care Center of Excellence, Heritage Community of Kalamazoo at (269) 343-1164 or (800) 210-9490.
