“Heathwood is the place you WANT to be, not HAVE to be. I’m blessed that my mom lives there. I know that she is cared about in every way.”
- Judy E.

Heathwood Assisted Living at Williamsville offers both assisted living and memory care for seniors in need of a little extra help with details of daily life. It’s the perfect blend of independence and care. Residents benefit from round-the clock nursing supervision, medication management, and personal care assistance. They enjoy personalized attention from caring and professional staff who are genuinely happy to see them each day.

Heathwood was awarded the 2015 Bronze National Quality Award by the American Health Care Association and the National Center for Assisted Living in recognition of their commitment to improving quality care for seniors. Under the same ownership for 37 years, Heathwood was attractively renovated in 2011. With more comforts than home, Heathwood offers furnished private and semi-private rooms giving residents a sense of independence in a warm and welcoming environment. Residents enjoy delicious home-cooked meals with their friends in a beautiful dining room, complete with crisp table linens and restaurant-style service. The café offers a cozy setting to share a cup of coffee or dine with family. The two wellness centers offer a wide range of group activities that enhance residents’ physical, cognitive, emotional, and spiritual well-being. Other amenities include a library, beauty and barber shop, gift shop, chapel, and laundry facilities. The beautifully landscaped backyard covers 2 acres and offers walking paths and plenty of seating to relax and enjoy the surroundings. Residents and their families enjoy cookouts and outdoor concerts all summer long.

Heathwood’s Memory Care program offers a specially designed secure unit for memory-impaired residents in an assisted living environment. This distinctive program employs specific techniques to help those residents maintain their dignity, abilities, and independence. Proven results include less anxiety, improved communication and cooperation, better eating and sleeping, and often less medication.

One of the many things that makes Heathwood unique is the “men’s only” activities. With 30% men, special programs geared especially for men are offered. They enjoy Men’s Club, discussion groups, movies, card games, carpentry, billiards, car shows, or simply sharing a cup of coffee with friends.

The Activities calendar is full so there is always something fun and interesting to do. Daily fitness classes include chair yoga and a walking club. 60% of the residents at Heathwood participate in some exercise programs that are designed by a wellness director who has over 30 year of experience in the fitness industry and specializes in programs for the “new” older adult.

Arts and crafts encourage creativity and give residents a sense of accomplishment and pride. Outings include shopping, restaurant dining, and museum visits. Worship services are important so services are offered several times each week. Daily movies are shown in the in-house movie theater as well as interesting activities including Wii games, cards, bingo, and a variety of other games.
