    I moved to Heritage Woods in Feb 2021 and have been very pleased with the community. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. The staff reminded me many times that this was my home and to treat it as such. Even during COVID they did everything they could to make it as comfortable as possible. While keeping us safe..

    My father has been at Heritage Woods for several years. Mary Stone the director is amazing. I cannot say enough about her care of the residents and her willingness to listen and accommodate. She did a fabulous job of keeping the residents safe during this last year during the pandemic.

    We have had a very positive experience at Heritage Woods. My mother moved in several months ago. All of the staff have been very friendly and helpful. The front desk staff always greet us by name when we visit. Mom has received personal assistance from everyone there including the maintenance, recreation, and medical staff who always do more than just their job. Director Mary has been very accommodating and spent extra time with us when we needed to work through arrangements. The facility is bright, attractive and well cared for. There is a full schedule of activities and entertainment. The dining room has a nice varied menu. We regularly see Physical Therapist and other health care providers there helping those that need extra assistance.

    This is just a wonderful place to be. My husband and I have been very satisfied with the services they provide here and they suit our needs very well. We always see the director walking around the building talking to residents and we love to see that. It shows us the management team is very involved with the people here. The food and service in the dining room is excellent, the variety on the menu is very well rounded, the activities are excellent, and the housekeeping and maintenance department keep up with the building and rooms. The care team is also on the ball ! we are so impressed with how knowledgeable and respectful they are. So far everything is up to par here and we are thrilled to have moved here!

    Heritage Woods has been a blessing for my family and my mother. Mom feels safe, loves the food and has enjoyed making new friends.The apartments are larger than most which allowed for my Mom to be able to take a lot of her furniture and treasures she holds dear. The staff is wonderful especially the director Mary who takes the time to get to know each member of the community.

    I can’t say enough about the care Mary Stone and her entire team at Heritage Woods provided my father. The genuine level of caring and concern my father received allowed him to feel so comfortable living there, being part of their loving community. I always felt welcome there too and, when I couldn’t always visit, I could tell they took care of my father like family. I was especially impressed with how well Mary and her team followed best practices during all phases of the pandemic and yet kept the residents’ days filled with safe, meaningful activities. I 100% recommend Heritage Woods!

    My parents moved into Heritage Woods in October 2017. They loved it there. The staff was awesome as my fathers health declined and through his passing. My mom still lives there and loves it there. She has become an active resident in many activities. The staff there is very caring and supportive. There has not been turnover in front desk staff the entire time she’s been there. She knows them all by name and they all know her. It is so comforting knowing they care. If they don’t see her during her regular walking or exercise, they loo for her and check on her. Mary Stone, the director, has been a strong stable throughout the pandemic. She kept everyone safe. There were very few cases in the entire year. She was on top of getting all the residents vaccinated as soon as she could. This is not just a job. She really cares.

    My father has been at Heritage Woods for a year and it was the best decision he made for himself. Everyone at the community is friendly, respectful and helpful. The food is great and a wide variety is offered daily. Prior to COVID there were multiple activities a day. During COVID they have been very concerned with the residents health but still offer activities that keep them safe. Mary Stone has done an excellent job in maintaining the safety of the residents! I highly recommend Heritage Woods to anyone needing an Independent Community to live in!

    My Mom moved down to NC in June of 2019. She had come to visit in April and picked Heritage Woods from the places that she visited. Well...she picked right! Heritage Woods has been a great place for her to live. Just recently, she fell and fractured her hip and the Executive Director, Mary Stone, who cares for each and every individual resident, helped us find a place where Mom can get her rehab before returning to Heritage Woods. Mom has enjoyed all the activities and socializing and I'm sure she will once again when she returns to her new home.

    We moved mom from another nearby facility for security concerns - and Heritage Woods has been wonderful! The staff are very caring and professional. A year and a half later, we have had to transition to the Assisted Living section, and we could not be more pleased. Mary Stone and her staff have made the transition seamless. We would highly recommend Heritage Woods to anyone!

    After visiting other Senior Communities in the Winston-Salem area, I immediately knew when I went to Hertiage Woods, I had found my mom’s new home. My mom has been at Heritage Woods for almost 2 years and I can say without hesitation, the Director and staff are wonderful and feel like an extension to our family. The Director and staff are always helpful and go beyond to do and assist, so if you are looking for a safe and loving environment for your parent or yourself, I highly recommend Hertiage Woods.This was a difficult move for my mom, she was having to leave her home of 55 years, her friends and her hometown and due to multiple health issues, she was scared and nervous. It did not take long for both us to realize, she’s living in a very caring and loving environment, she is so happy and has made lots of new friends.I would also like to thank the Director and the entire staff for working so hard to make sure my mom along with the other residents stay safe during Covid-19, their hard work and diligence has been exceptional!!Thank you again for being so kind and loving to both my mom and me.Vanessa M

    In 2017, my parents moved to an Independent Living apartment at Heritage Woods Senior Living (HWSL) and after my mom’s husband died, she has continued to happily live there. Although there have been several staff changes, the present Executive Director, Mary Stone, has definitely kept the facility in tip-top shape for the past two years. Her ability to keep everything running smoothly is amazing; not only do the residents love her, the families do as well. Before COVID-19 caused a change in procedures, the regular routine provided numerous daily activities including exercise class, Bingo, Arts & Crafts, movies, card games, outings to local restaurants, entertainment (singing, dancing, choruses, instrumental performances, and even “Elvis”!) as well as many special events and seasonal offerings. (Since “Quarantine” began in the Spring, HWSL has continued to offer as many activities as possible with the restrictions that are in place to keep the residents safe and healthy.) The front desk ladies are personable and professional; the wait staff is friendly and attentive; the dining room chef provides a variety of daily food choices; the maintenance staff responds as quickly as possible to needed repairs; and the other staff members are courteous and responsive to the residents’ requests. From the comfortable rocking chairs at the building’s entrance to the cozy arrangement of the furniture in the Atrium, the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. Your loved ones will enjoy the companionship and feel right at home when they become residents at Heritage Woods Senior Living!

    My Grandfather lived there about 20 years ago and now my Mother lives there. The staff has always had the needs and wants of residents catered to above and beyond. The facility, inside and out, has always been very inviting. The resident rooms are set up perfectly for their needs. The food, activities, family involved events, etc. have made it an easy transition from private home to retirement center living. Our family can’t say enough wonderful things about Heritage Woods. We love it!
