Heartis Village Peoria
Offering assisted living and A Knew Day® Memory Support to seniors in Peoria, IL, at Heartis Village, we have a unique perspective of senior living that not only changes minds. It changes lives.
So, what’s so different about our perspective on senior living? Well, we believe that moving to a senior living community is a natural step in the journey of life. In fact, we think it should be a step that is celebrated and applauded. After all, while one may need supportive care to remain living an independent lifestyle, the desire to lead a full, active and meaningful life doesn’t diminish. And there’s nowhere better to lead that engaging lifestyle than at Heartis Village. It’s our purpose and pleasure to help our residents be inspired. Every day!
Heartis Village is built on the belief that while people may need care, they also deserve an enriching lifestyle.
