Where were you June 11, 2013? We know where we were; Right here welcoming Heritage Manor in Newton, Iowa to the Eden Registry.

It is often said to the folks that work at Heritage Manor, “it just feels different here.” It’s no wonder because they know relationships matter and they take extra care to make everyone feel like part of the family.here were you June 11, 2013? We know where we were; Right here welcoming Heritage Manor in Newton, Iowa to the Eden Registry.

When a new Elder arrives at Heritage Manor they are welcomed with open arms and special care is given to be sure they become well known to everyone as soon as possible.  Elders are encouraged to decorate their rooms with personal furniture and items that make it feel nice and comfortable.

Simple pleasures and normal routines are honored as they awaken naturally and decide what and when they would like to eat breakfast. Mealtimes are special here as folks gather to chat with friends, listen to the piano and enjoy a delicious meal complete with homemade soup that is made from scratch each day.

Weather permitting the Elders and staff get outside to enjoy sitting in the sun, listening to music concerts or exercising under the canopy.  Community involvement is important to Heritage Manor and they work hard to support the pet shelter adoption days and raise money for the local school aged children that need school supplies.

This is a home filled by connectedness, meaning and joy. This is a home that lives and breaths the Eden way of life. We are proud to have them on board.
