I Visited This Community
Heatherwood is a small, 19 room, memory care community that is devoted 100 percent to the care and well-being of its residents. Its tucked away amidst a very busy downtown, but is very accessible to two local hospitals. Because they are a memory care only community, they offer on-site beauty care, as well as regular dental/medical/podiatry contracted providers to make it an easier experience for their residents. They are also a state contracted hospice provider, which provides much relief to families, when or if the need arises for their loved one to need hospice care and to not have to scramble to find another community for their loved one.

Description of Heatherwood
We welcome you to experience memory care at Heatherwood in beautiful Walnut Creek, California. Our community is near the center of town, by countless shopping and dining establishments and medical centers such as Kaiser Permanente are just seconds away.
Heatherwood’s staff understands each resident for the unique individual that he or she is. We get to know those whom we care for and learn about their life story before memory loss, so we can better accommodate them. Using reminiscing tools, we capture every resident’s history, surrounding them with what is familiar, and providing them with a comfortable and predictable environment.
Heatherwood offers both private and semi-private apartments, with private baths designed to help orient and cue resident behavior. With brightly lit common areas as well as a large, secure and enclosed courtyard including an exercise area, our community has a wonderful relaxing atmosphere.
Heatherwood offers three nutritious meals every day in our comfortable dining room as well as snacks and refreshments available 24/7. Our staff organizes numerous activities, keeping residents physically, mentally and socially active, such as music or art therapy.
We take care of the duties and chores of home maintenance, housekeeping, linen service, even offering personal laundry service. All utilities except for telephone and cable TV are included in monthly rates. Non-scheduled transportation services, beauty and barber shop, and manicure/pedicures are available for additional fee.
Heatherwood provides wellness solutions so our residents may thrive, living a full life throughout retirement. Our 24-hour awake-staff is there to support residents through activities of daily living, including ambulation support, bathing, grooming assistance and medication management. Our residents are afforded special care and activities designed to provide structure and meaning to the lives of those with dementia.
