Live the Good Life at Lake Howard Heights

You can find Lake Howard Heights in beautiful Winter Haven, Fla. Our high-rise community overlooks majestic Lake Howard, so you can expect inspirational views at the close of each day as the sun gently descends upon the lake. Providing both Winter Haven Independent Living and Assisted Living lifestyle options, 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 life you’ve always dreamed awaits…

Enter our community, and you’ll be welcomed by a large lobby and seating area, a stately library, a relaxing dining room overlooking the lake, a multipurpose room for activities, meetings or family gatherings, and a full-service beauty salon and barber shop. We are centrally located in Florida, an easy drive to a number of attractions, including the newly opened Legoland—the largest of its kind in the world! We’re also just an hour away from Walt Disney World theme parks and two hours in either direction from Florida’s beautiful beaches.

We are at your service

Life at Lake Howard Heights includes our dining program featuring fresh, locally sourced meals prepared by the Executive chef; housekeeping service; award-winning programs; daily wellness checks; and more. Caregiver services are also available 24 hours a day. We drive groups to local markets, restaurants, and attractions, too. Have a request? We are more than happy to take you wherever you need or want to go—just ask!

Care that’s always there

Our Winter Haven Assisted Living residents and residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that a licensed nurse is available. Prior to moving in we speak with you and your physician to find just the right level of assistance that will allow you to enjoy your independence to the fullest. Together, we will compose an Individual Service Plan (ISP) to guide us in assisting you. Our mission is to provide a lifestyle that fosters independence, actively engages the mind, invigorates the body and nurtures the spirit while offering you and your loved ones the peace of mind you deserve.

Worry-free lifestyle with just a simple lease

While some communities insist on new residents plopping 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 30 Winter Haven Assisted Living apartments, and 100 Independent Living apartments. All of our apartment homes are spacious, with varying floor plans and amenities described below.

Live Well, Dine Well

Allow our professionally trained service staff to present you with delicious dishes made from locally sourced ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At Senior Lifestyle, dining is an integral part of the resident experience, and we do everything we can to delight you with a personalized dining experience.

Dining Directors and Executive Chefs meet with residents to discuss and incorporate enhancements to the menu, special requests, favorite recipes or foods, and unless otherwise specified by state regulations we offer therapeutic diets such as reduced concentrated sweets, mechanical soft and purée. Residents can select healthy, locally sourced options based on the nutritional information, or they can simply opt to choose their favorites. And we always encourage residents and relatives to make special arrangements when expecting a family visit!

Executive Bio for Lake Howard Heights

Meet Our Executive Director

Glenda Hanley

Glenda has over 28 years of experience working in the senior living industry, having worked at Lake Howard Heights since 2008. Her favorite part about her role as Executive Director is knowing that at the end of the day, she is making a difference in the lives of residents.

“I believe that what makes Lake Howard Heights special is the people,” she says. “We have an amazing management team who all work together for the common goal of making life as good as it can be for our residents. Most of our staff have been here for a long time, so it’s gotten to the point where it isn’t so much a job as it is a part of who we are, and the residents feel this.”

For fun, Glenda enjoys singing, listening to music, and being with her family.

Glenda is excited for you to experience Lake Howard Heights for yourself!

From the moment we went for our first tour, we knew this was the place for my dad. Everyone was so friendly, the dining room was bright and inviting, the rooms were clean and spacious…it was perfect!

Lake Howard Heights is a great place! We looked at seven different places, when searching for assisted living for my dad, and none of them provided the friendly staff and value that LHH did. And, Brian [Removed], the sales director, could NOT be more helpful!

“Seeing the care that the staff at Lake Howard Heights provide to my mother makes me glad that she chose this assisted-living facility. She certainly had plenty of options, so it’s nice to know that she’s being treated well and taking care of.” – LovingLife65

Testimonial Image

“My dad has been at Lake Howard for over a year now. Overall I have been pleased with the facility. This site lists cable as being included. It is not. And I “accidently” found Lake Howard when I was searching for a nursing home for my dad. Somehow they have been misclassified. Lake Howard is an Assisted Living Facility NOT a nursing home. Over the last year, my dad has gradually deteriated. During this time, they have been helpful and very sweet to him. There is only one staff member my mom doesn’t care for (my mom visits my dad every morning, spending the morning with him and then goes about her day). He’s just become too difficult for her to deal with. Every issue and every request we have ever made has been met with in an extremely timely and caring fashion. It is always a JOY to be there on any holiday. Even on dad’s worst dementia days, they not only deal with it well but help us deal with it well too.” – Lampp
