How Heritage Community Cares for Your Health

As you search for your retirement destination, what sort of questions have you found yourself asking along the way? In other words, what aspects of your retirement are most important to you? 

For some, it’s the location. For others, it’s the amenities and lifestyle. But one thing all retirees worry about is their health and wellness as they age. And that makes sense, because as you enter your senior years, it can become more and more difficult to maintain good health. That’s why it’s vitally important to consider senior living communities that offer healthcare services and amenities. That’s also why we created Heritage Community. 


At Heritage Community, we know that empathy and compassion play an essential role in how we provide healthcare. And as a Life Plan Community, we understand just how vital it is to your health to have a care plan that grows with you by extending its offerings as needs arise. That not only gives you the tools necessary to live a happy and healthy retirement, but it also alleviates the stress that can come with not having a plan in place should your health begin to decline. 

 With multiple levels of care available, our community offers everything you might need to live a healthy retirement lifestyle. There are four levels of care provided here at Heritage Community: independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing care + rehabilitation.  

Independent Living

Independent Living is ideal for seniors who can live on their own but want the conveniences of living within a community that provides services and amenities. Most retirees will enter the community as independent living residents. 

 At Heritage Community, our independent living options at The Artisan and homes like Ridge Creek offer residents the freedom to enjoy a low-maintenance lifestyle enhanced by a full range of services and amenities. Plus, as an independent living resident, our Life Plan model allows you to have immediate access to exceptional medical services if and when necessary.

Assisted Living

Assisted Living at Heritage Community incorporates housing, personal care services, and health care uniquely designed to each resident. With assisted living, either at Meilland Square and Hawthorn Landing, a 24-hour licensed staff of nurses and trained caregivers are available to provide personalized assistance with daily activities like bathing, dressing, monitoring medications, and more.  

 It is our caregivers’ objective to promote our residents’ independence while also providing personalized care. At Heritage Community, we’ll offer a wide range of services with varying levels of support. Everything is catered to the individual to make you feel at home. With top-notch assisted living services, Heritage Community supports residents’ interests and needs with wellness programs, monthly events, high quality dining options, and well-trained staff to ensure satisfaction. 

Memory Care

Memory Care is a specific type of care that focuses on individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or other memory-related problems. In this level of care, residents are involved with stimulating activities and live in a supportive and home-like atmosphere. 

 The trained staff of professionals at Heritage Community at both Meilland Square and Hawthorn Landing are available 24/7, and will guarantee residents the comfort and familiarity of home while providing prompt and intuitive care as needed. We make it our purpose to make sure residents feel connected and secure so you can experience an improved and dignified quality of life. As part of this mission, we’re also home to the Memory Care Learning Center – an educational resource to families and individuals around the region who are living with dementia. Since its founding in 1945, the Memory Care Learning Center has helped thousands of seniors and their caretakers as they navigate the often confusing and heartbreaking progression of dementia and Alzheimers by providing care with love and dignity.  

Skilled Nursing Care and Rehabilitation

Skilled Nursing Care provides residents with elite nurses and rehabilitation services. Our Skilled Nursing Care has numerous branches of care – covering short-term rehabilitative services, to acute long-term care for those who need personalized, around-the-clock attention. 

 The Upjohn offers residents three branches of therapy, designed to highlight comfort and support. At our rehabilitation center, we provide speech, occupational, and physical therapy through one of the most highly-rated, in-house therapy departments in Kalamazoo


The recent expansion of Heritage Community of Kalamazoo is designed to provide exceptional care and comfortable living to seniors throughout West Michigan.
