Heron House

Go with the Flow at Heron House

Discover for yourself just how good it can get. At Heron House in Sarasota, Fla., we provide the care and support to live your life to the fullest while only a short drive from the action of Sarasota. Our one-level community is located near award-winning beaches, a trendy downtown area, and spectacular shopping at St. Armands Circle. We offer five levels of care tailored to your needs. It’s our top priority to provide you all the services and amenities you need to live life the way only you know how!

The comforts of home, and then some

Step through our doors and be welcomed into a gracious community where new friends and familiar comforts await. Sip your coffee and enjoy a good book on our porch as you look onto our quiet garden, have friends over for a delicious restaurant style meal, take a shopping excursion to one of our favorite hotspots in town, or join the Wii bowling team! Our lovely common areas are as cozy as your own living room, perfect for a quiet moment or entertaining family and friends. A variety of activities each day assures you can be as busy or quiet as you like.

Care that’s always there

Our Assisted Living residents and residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that a certified nurse is on staff 24 hours a day and a security system is in place for residents with mild dementia. Our outstanding senior living experience employs specialists in health services for the aging as well as an ongoing passion for daily service excellence. When necessary, we enlist the highest quality community resources available, including the finest in home health care, physical therapy, and visiting physicians.

Worry-free lifestyle with just a simple lease

While some communities insist on new residents putting down huge, non-refundable payments up-front, we like to do things a little differently. We care about not only the physical and emotional well being of our residents, but their financial health as well. That’s why we offer our residents all the perks of country club living without the expensive buy-in—just a simple lease. Our community consists of 90 apartments, with three different floor plans and a number of amenities listed below.

Dining Directors and Executive Chefs meet with residents to discuss and incorporate enhancements to the menu, special requests, diet restrictions and favorite recipes or foods. Residents can select healthy, locally sourced options based on the nutritional information, or they can simply opt to choose their favorites.
