Welcome to The Martini Club Here at The Heritage Downtown!

Our Martini Club is more than just an event. Martinis bring to mind another era of style and sophistication; martinis have a dash of mystery and a twist of elegance. Though the monthly club is for our residents, the Martini is our guest of honor. The Martini’s vibe is “loungey” and reflects the club as residents mingle and chill, all while enjoying cheese, crackers and sliced meat. The martini was popularized by Bond… James Bond, however a tuxedo is not mandatory to enjoy our “The Heritage Downtown” Martinis.   A popular theory on the origins of the Martini suggests it evolved from a cocktail called the Martinez, served sometime in the early 1860s at the Occidental Hotel in San Francisco, which people frequented before taking an evening ferry to the nearby town of Martinez. Alternatively, the people of Martinez say the drink was first created by a bartender in their town, or that the drink was named after the town itself. […]

Taking On Isolation To Help Improve Quality Of Life

We make it our mission here at The Heritage Downtown to provide the best quality of life for our residents! As they spend their twilight years with us we know that providing an environment that offers a wide range of activities and promotes healthy lifestyles helps to improve happiness and longevity.

Poor Vision or Hearing. Because both of these can cause a senior to become less social, often times they end up becoming isolated because they cannot communicate with others very well. Encouraging testing in these areas can help improve their quality of life. The technology in hearing aids and in vision improvement have come a long way, and will help seniors communicate better among their peers. […]

Assisted Living vs. Independent Living? What Is The Difference?

Selecting a Senior Living Facility is a big step, whether it is for yourself or for a loved one! There are many factors to consider and probably the most important issue is first determining whether you or your loved one needs an “Assisted Living” facility, or if an “Independent” facility will work. What is the difference between an Assisted Living facility and an Independent Living facility? An Assisted Living facility will provide help, usually with regards to medical, memory or aging issues. These issues greatly impact a persons ability to safely live at home, so they seek a living facility that offers options with regards to the level of help or assistance they will need. On the other side is the Independent Living facility, where a person makes the choice of moving into a facility because they no longer want the burden or responsibility of living in their current home.
