Heartwood Homes Senior Living

Home is where the heart is...

What's the difference between a house and a home? Most people have heard the saying that "Home is where the heart is." Here at Heartwood Homes Senior Living, not only do we believe in that statement, every day we strive to put our hearts into making you feel at home, by the personal care we provide as well as the atmosphere of our homes.

Owner Jason Schmitz, R.N., established Heartwood Homes Senior Living more than 10 years ago with a simple vision: to provide the best assisted living and memory care services possible. Ensuring that our elders live with distinction, independence, personal choice and respect, we've become one of the most experienced and innovative providers of memory care in the Fox Cities.

Our homes are licensed as Community Based Residential Facilities (CBRF), more commonly known as assisted living facilities. We are unique to the industry as we specialize in caring for people with all forms and stages of dementia. In fact, 'memory care' is all we do, in addition to providing compassionate 24-hour nursing care in a professionally managed, carefully-designed, real home setting, where individuality is recognized and privacy is respected.

We understand that each person is unique and special. The services each senior requires are never exactly the same. We call this our "person-centered" approach to living. It allows us to give choices about day-to-day living, service and care options. This way, we help maintain the individuality and dignity of our elders and provide the best possible lifestyle and service options. We accommodate and strive to make Heartwood Homes Senior Living the kind of place you'd recommend to friends and family; the kind of place you would be happy to call home.

Our mission and vision are straightforward. We are devoted to providing the highest quality in assisted living health services by ensuring that our residents reside with the greatest dignity, individuality, and comfort as possible. We envision that elders truly direct their own care and make their own decision about how they spend their time. A world in which caregivers are highly interactive in choices that are related to their jobs and the people they care for. The elders, their families and the staff are part of a flourishing, independent community where interaction matters. We encourage a common movement where new ways of individualizing care are freely shared.

Heartwood Homes Senior Living has two convenient locations in the Fox Valley: 1413 N. Mason St., Appleton, and 1255 De Pere St., Menasha. For more information, please visit our Web site at, or call (920) 955-3131.
