What is Independent Living?

Independent Living is designed to enhance individual well-being and ensure a rich life experience by promoting a personalized lifestyle and social interaction with other seniors. It offers comfortable living with the companionship of friends and the freedom to spend your time doing the things that you enjoy most. Independent Living is apartment style living where individuals can live without health care providers on staff.

Heritage Heights consists of 35 affordable housing apartments that are subsidized by HUD. Our target population for the apartments includes those with low income. (A tenant is able to have assets.) No one pays the same amount of rent as it is based on 30% of your adjusted gross income.

To qualify a person must meet one of the following:

1) The head of the household/spouse must be 62 years of age or older.
2) Handicapped (must be 18 years of age or older & must meet the requirements for this special designation).

In addition, tenants must qualify for the housing assistance program. Each day, two meals are available and served in the dining room. Weekly transportation is available to the grocery store. Tenants can participate and lead activities in the building or join community events.

Located adjacent to Eventide Lutheran Home, the community features one-bedroom and studio apartments, as well as comfortable lounges, an exercise room, laundry facilities, and a full-time manager. Within a quiet & safe environment, Heritage Heights also offers security, emergency call light system, 24-hour maintenance, and easy access to the remainder of the Eventide community.

Our apartments will allow you to maintain your independent lifestyle while enjoying the social aspect of community living.
