Now Open – Heartis Village Peoria
Offering assisted living and A Knew Day memory care to seniors in Peoria, IL, at Heartis Village, we have a unique perspective of senior living that not only changes minds. It changes lives.
So, what’s so different about our perspective on senior living? Well, we believe that moving to a senior living community is a natural step in the journey of life. In fact, we think it should be a step that is celebrated and applauded.

And there’s nowhere better to lead that engaging lifestyle than at Heartis Village. It’s our purpose and pleasure to help our residents be inspired. Every day!
