Carefree Living in a Homelike Setting at Elmcroft of Heritage Woods
Our single-level senior living home has been part of the vibrant city of Mobile since 1998. With our caring, family atmosphere and culturally rich location, Elmcroft of Heritage Woods offers a lifestyle of comfort and convenience. Our compassionate caregivers are dedicated to residents’ happiness, well-being and peace of mind, and each resident is treated with dignity and respect. All maintenance and housekeeping is included, so days are spent enjoying life, not doing chores. Best of all, our rates are all-inclusive, so there’s no increase in rate if a resident’s needs change.
We take our residents’ preferences into consideration in every way. Our community is pet friendly, so dogs and cats are welcome. Shared and private apartments are available. Menus feature multiple choices of chef-inspired meals served restaurant-style in our dining room. Fun activities are planned according to the interests of our residents. And when residents want some peaceful quiet, our screened-in patio, community gardens, courtyard and comfortable indoor gathering spaces are just right for reading or contemplation.
What really underscores carefree living at Elmcroft of Heritage Woods is our capability to meet the needs of our residents, even as those needs change. Our assisted living staff are specially trained in the full range of personal care skills. Our dedicated memory care neighborhood offers the same personal care support, with the added focus on the special needs of adults with senior dementia. That means our residents can enjoy as much independence as safely as possible, as long as possible.
While cost may not be the most important factor when considering living options for your loved ones, it can be complicated. Planning for the varying expenses of utilities, maintenance, housekeeping, food and entertainment – and adding the cost of care – can seem overwhelming. As an all-inclusive community, there are no surprises on a resident’s monthly senior living bill from Elmcroft of Heritage Woods. You’ll pay the same amount every month for exactly what your loved one needs to continue enjoying life without worry. That predictable pricing means peace of mind when it comes to budgeting.
Respectful, Compassionate Care
One of the many things our residents compliment us on is our staff. Our 24-hour resident care staff, as well as our culinary staff, housekeeping and activities coordinators are completely devoted to making our residents happy and at home.
When our residents need a little extra help throughout the day and night, our assisted living staff are specially trained to provide the considerate and compassionate service that helps them thrive. We provide help with day-to-day tasks like incontinence and medication management as well as dressing, bathing and dining. And we’re there with support for safe engagement in fun activities like barbecues, cooking classes, fitness classes, live entertainment, shopping and dining outings, and trivia.
