About Us: The Heartwood Place Community

At Heartwood Place, before we provide any services, we ask:

What is best for your loved one? What is best for your family? How can we improve everyone’s daily outcome? What type of community best suits your loved one?

In your search for answers and the ideal care setting, we suggest looking beyond the manicured lawns and tasteful décor (although those, too, can help make a decision). Seek out a sincere and caring space that offers a complete living experience. Find a community that goes beyond addressing solely one’s health concerns; find a space that commits to the whole person and their wellness. You will find that these ideals are what the Heartwood Place community stands for. It is who we are, and what we love to do.  

Our goal is to help families avoid problems before they even arise. The author Cindy McDonald once wrote,

“Aging is not an option, not for anyone. It is how gracefully we handle the process, and how lucky we are, as the process handles us.”

Here at Heartwood Place, we want to create an option for seniors and their families that feels good.  When aging requires greater medical attention and care, things start feeling challenging. Feelings of helplessness, guilt, fear or worry may enter the picture when you or your loved one’s needs cannot be fully met at home. Fortunately, the experience and expertise we provide at Heartwood Place Memory Care are offered with an abundance of understanding. Let us help you or your loved one regain control and dignity. Our compassionate care team offers an excellent daily experience that can greatly relieve the impact of aging.  

Join Our Support Group

On the third Wednesday of every month, Holly Hordichok (our Community Relations Manager) hosts the Heartwood Place Support Group starting at 3 PM.  This group has been gathering for over six years, with a short pause during the pandemic.  Support Group is available for family members of our residents, as well as caregivers taking care of a person with dementia, Alzheimer’s, or memory loss.  In fact, anyone seeking support or greater awareness of these diagnosis is welcome to attend. 

Support Group is a special part of the Heartwood Place community that offers dementia education, compassion and a safe place to share experiences.  Special guests and speakers bring their knowledge and experience to the group, and light refreshments are provided.  Older residents family members often attend and share their stories, their failures and their memories. We find that new guests, who perhaps don’t know where to begin when facing the challenges of dementia, find these meetings both impactful and comforting.  If you or someone you know would benefit from this type of gathering, please join us!  If you have any questions, please reach out to Holly at the following number: (503) 980-9990. We look forward to connecting with you.
