Health care in senior living can mean many different things. Depending on the type of senior living community, the care offered to residents varies greatly. To get a better idea, let’s start by defining senior care. Seniorcare.org defines senior care as “specialized care that is designed to meet the needs and requirements of seniors at various stages.” Let that sink in. At Heritage Community of Kalamazoo, we go above and beyond the “requirements” of senior care. We don’t just meet the needs of our residents; we surpass them by providing our residents with genuine and personalized care.
At Heritage Community, we believe that empathy and compassion play an essential role in how we provide health care. This form of care involves showing sensitivity and understanding to our residents, combined with an enthusiasm to help and promote their well-being. The compassion of our caregivers not only enhances the health of our residents, but also enhances how they live.
How We Care

By choosing a Life Plan Community, residents can rest assured knowing that future medical care will be provided for them, either in the convenience of their homes, or right within the community. At Revel Creek, we truly value the health, wellness, and confidence that comes with lifelong care. Our senior living community offers six unique levels of care through Heritage Community –staffed with compassionate and skilled professionals.
