Our Mission is to provide older adults with comprehensive and coordinated human services to encourage and promote healthy lifestyles, independence, well-being and quality of life.

Our Target Population

  • Older Adults in Marion County age 55+
  • Older adults served yearly = over 1,250
  • U.S. Census results for Marion County: more older adults are living alone, more people are living to older ages and the 55+ population is rapidly increasing.

What difference does Heritage Place make?

  • We help older adults live in their residence of choice, an important aspect of independent living.
  • We help older adults live more socially active lives - important because socially isolated seniors are at high risk for poor health and for poor physical, mental, emotional and social functioning.
  • Watch our video: Heritage Place - Making a Difference in Our Community
