About Our Concord Retirement Community
The spirit of our community is strong because we live our mission every day.
Havenwood Heritage Heights is a not-for-profit, faith-based Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in New Hampshire., affiliated with the New Hampshire Conference of the United Church of Christ. We provide a continuum of healthcare services and long-term care, including independent living, assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing and rehabilitation. We are the largest of only three accredited CCRS in New Hampshire.
Residents of varying backgrounds and faiths live together at our Concord retirement community in an atmosphere of independence and dignity. We share a common bond of companionship and a sense of community. We are a retirement community enriched by the diversity of its members, living together in a spirit of mutual respect and acceptance. We offer services, facilities and programs that are meaningful, promote well-being, and meet the environmental, physical, emotional and spiritual needs of seniors aged 62 and above.
A Letter From Our President
Greetings from Havenwood Heritage Heights. Over the past year plus we have been involved full steam in the pandemic. HHH has done extraordinarily well to keep its resident population COVID-19 free and safe. My hat goes off to staff members that have gone well above and beyond and done so many incredible things that the history books most likely will never recount. The staff population and residents are responsible for the spirit that prevails in every aspect of our community. I believe that as you peruse this website you will begin to get a sense of what a wonderful, warm, and multifaceted retirement community we are.
Our rich history is very much a part of our daily lives. Founded by the Reverend Dr. Everett Barrows in the mid-sixties, we were a community ahead of our time. As a mission-driven organization, we gladly accept the challenge of keeping with that tradition by offering only the very finest and most innovative services available.
From our newly created sports complex and country store to the beautiful views of the Merrimack River to the shining Gold Dome of our State Capitol, we have a great deal to offer. As an accredited Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), we strive to serve you and meet your needs in every way possible.
Michael A. Palmieri President/CEO
The vision for our retirement home in Concord, NH began with our founding father, the Reverend Dr. Everett R. Barrows. He and his colleagues envisioned a faith-based, inclusive senior living community where seniors would live in independent cottages with access to supportive assisted living services. We first opened our doors in 1967 with our original Havenwood Campus, New Hampshire’s first independent living retirement community. In 1980, we added our second campus, Heritage Heights.
CARF Accredited Care
Havenwood Heritage Heights is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), the only accreditor for CCRC’s in the U.S. To receive accreditation, a CCRC must meet or exceed CARF’s rigorous standards, a bar that very few retirement communities meet. (Only two other CCRCs in New Hampshire are accredited.) Thanks to the amazing commitment on behalf of our staff, our CARF accreditation is a symbol of pride and a sign to residents that we are dedicated to providing the very best care.
