Our staff is committed to involving and empowering the people who live at Heddington Oaks so their emotional, spiritual, and physical needs continue to be met.

The Admission Process

If you are considering Heddington Oaks as your next home,
please call us at 309.636.3600 for a detailed tour of our facility.

For complete consideration, we will need a completed Preliminary Application for Residency, as well as a copy of your medical history and current physical completed by a physician. If you (or the prospective resident) live in another facility, you may request this information from the facility or you may advise them that we will be requesting this information from them.

If you decide Heddington Oaks is the home for you, our staff will walk you through the admission process to ensure you know what to expect every step of the way. We will make sure you have all the necessary documents for admission and all the necessary personal items for your comfort. Prior to admission, a screening needs to be completed by the Council on Aging. We will explain this procedure to you and we will assist you in scheduling this screening.

Our staff will also help determine which care unit is best equipped for your comfort so we can provide you the highest level care possible.
