Developers recently broke ground on the new 94-unit Heartis Village Orland Park assisted living and memory care community at 159th St. and Harlem Ave.
The community will be owned by a Caddis affiliate and will be managed by Pathway Senior Living LLC. Heartis Village Orland Park will take senior living to the highest level, according to Maria Oliva, Pathway Senior Living Chief Operating Officer.
“We provide a life-enriching environment where seniors are engaged and living meaningful, purpose-filled lives,” Oliva said. “We offer unique activities, including VIVA! World Tour that gives residents a chance to experience exotic cultures and learn new languages without leaving the community. Residents also can participate in the canine companion program, garden in our Victory Gardens, learn new topics and past times in our ‘Lifelong Learning Center’ and experience the beauty of art through projects for both beginners and experienced artists.”
Heartis Village Orland Park will provide spacious accommodations; exceptional, personalized care; and a wide range of special amenities to make everyday living better. This includes wellness and fitness classes, tours and excursions, games and movies, fishing and boating, horseback riding and more.
The community will feature a salon and spa with a therapeutic tub; two interior courtyards; delicious, chef-prepared meals; a large dining room and a private dining room; an arts and crafts room; media room; beautifully landscaped grounds; 24-hour emergency call system; housekeeping and laundry services; personal transportation; assistance with the activities of daily living; and luxurious finishes.
Heartis Village Orland Park is expected to be completed in fall 2017. The community will be conveniently located near highway I-80 as well as the Metra commuter rail system that links to the Chicago Loop and from there to O’Hare and Midway Airports.
