 Keeping our residents active, entertained, and engaged with both their fellow residents and the staff is one of our top priorities. We want to maintain a high level of socialization and interaction. All of our staff takes pride in the relationships we build and strive to make it the most positive living environment as possible! Heartland Assisted Living wants to get to know each and every one of our residents so that we can pick up on when they are having a bad day and need some extra encouragement or so we can share their favorite book or movie with them. We want to hear their stories and memories and help them to cherish these times from their past.

Everyone needs to have the option for socialization in order to maintain a true level of health. Although we will not force a resident to be in the commons areas, we encourage being together as a group and always want our residents to feel as though they are a valued member of our community. We offer many opportunities to interact with others and will be sure that no one ever feels as though they are left out or lonely; our staff members are there not only as care givers, but also companions.
