The Suites at Heritage Point is now Offering Assisted Living in Morgantown

Posted Date: 11/6/2020

The state has approved a license for The Suites at Heritage Point to offer comprehensive assisted living services, which means residents experiencing limited daily living skills are able to remain in their homes.

“This freedom to remain in place and know that comprehensive care and dedicated assistance is available to them is a blessing for our residents,” said Wilma Sternthal, Executive Director of The Village and The Suites at Heritage Point.

The assisted living services include medication administration; 24-hour assistance with activities of daily living, such as bathing or dressing; three chef prepared meals served daily; housekeeping and personal laundry services; scheduled transportation; personal grocery shopping; emergency pendant with fall alert system; and highly skilled nurses who can assist with telehealth appointments.

“Continuing to offer expanded services and care to our residents is a key part of the mission of Mon Health System,” said David Goldberg, President and CEO of Mon Health System. The senior living residences have been part of Mon Health System since 1999.

The Office of Health Facility Licensure and Certification (OHFLAC) of West Virginia has granted Assisted Living licensure to The Suites at Heritage Point. Previously licensed as residential care, The Suites at Heritage Point has a 21-year reputation for providing exceptional care and services to older adults in the Morgantown area.

“I am excited to be able to offer assisted living services to our residents. Our past licensure status required our residents to be able to safely and independently remove themselves from the building in case of an emergency. As we age, some assistance may be needed to get up out of a chair or to walk, and now we are able to continue care for residents with these needs,” said Sternthal.

Even during COVID-19 safety restrictions, residents have a wide array of social, recreational and physical activities in which to participate. Outdoor live concerts, guest lecturers and Bible study classes on video, as well as many opportunities to volunteer are ways the well trained, tenured and warm staff helps residents lead a healthy, fulfilled and vibrant lifestyle. 

“As a result of the pandemic, our staff has added more services to help keep all of our residents safe. We have expanded our personal shopping services, so residents do not have to leave the community to grocery shop, and have assisted residents in alternative ways to communicate with their loved ones, such as email, Facebook, FaceTime and Zoom,” added Sternthal.

The Village at Heritage Point, a not-for-profit life plan community, offers both independent living apartments (in The Village) and assisted living apartments (in The Suites) on a single campus. The beautifully landscaped grounds include a pond with abundant wildlife, paved walking paths and gazebos for residents to enjoy. Indoor amenities include two elegant and spacious dining rooms, beauty salon/barber shop, spacious arts and crafts studio, newly equipped fitness room, two libraries, computer lab, café, several gathering rooms, and much more.
