Renovations are Underway
Heritage House has been serving the Atlantic community for over half a century with exceptional senior living and healthcare services, as part of WesleyLife, a nonprofit, mission-driven organization devoted to transforming the aging experience.
In 2015, Heritage House began work on transforming its campus through interior renovations and construction of a state-of-the-art Lifestyle Pavilion. Take a glance at Heritage House's transformation plans.
Renovations include replacement of its original 1963 kitchen, expansion of the dining and common areas, and upgrades to the health center to reflect a more homelike environment for residents.
The Lifestyle Pavilion will not only act as the gateway to Heritage House, it will serve a vital role as a health and well-being community center for residents and members of the public. Programming and services will focus on the physical, emotional, spiritual and nutritional well-being of participants. Through a partnership with the Nishna Valley YMCA, plans are to offer a range of high-quality health and well-being services for older adults.
Help Us Raise the Roof
WesleyLife has asked the community to contribute 27 percent or $1.9 million toward our $7 million project. We have received an exceptional response to the public appeal; however, we continue to need additional support.

Future Transformation Plans
WesleyLife already has visions to expand upon its efforts to transform Heritage House. That longer-term vision includes updating Brookridge apartments and building new townhomes with "Smart House" innovative designs on a buy-to-build basis.
If you've been considering senior living options and would like to live independently in a private residence, and still enjoy all of the amenities and services offered by Heritage House, give us a call to discuss a Heritage House townhome.
