The survey certification process is designed to ensure that communities are fully operating under the rules and regulations of the Supportive Living Program. 

In the survey process, representatives from Healthcare and Family Services visited Heritage Woods of Batavia to conduct a detailed review of all aspects of the community's operation, including the physical plant, nursing and ancillary services, maintenance, food service and disaster preparation. The survey process also included interviews with residents.

“We are extremely pleased to have received a perfect score on the survey,” says Marcy LoDolce, Administrator of Heritage Woods. “We are especially pleased that the HFS surveyors noted that our residents are happy.”
