Special Events & Programs
Altenheim Retirement Community has been a presence in Wheeling since 1891. We now offer stylish housing for independent men, women and couples who are 65 years of age and older. Eight free-standing cottages are rented on a monthly basis and are equipped with stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, washer and dryer. Amenities include lawn care, snow removal, general maintenance, meals, activities, and more! Rent does not include utilities. There is no admission fee.
We have an active community! Dinners out, movies, special meals in summer and on holidays are just some of the events scheduled for retirement community residents!

Senior/Caregiver Resources & Referral Services
SEEING ALZHEIMER'S THROUGH A SON'S EYES will be presented on Monday, June 20 from 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm with sign in starting at 12:30 pm. The program is being co-sponsored with Good Shepherd Nursing Home and will be held at Good Shepherd, 159 Edgington Lane, Wheeling WV. Our presenter is Randy Forzano. Randy is a licensed social worker, HR Director at Good Shepherd and Nursing Home Administrator. Randy is no stranger to dementia but the impact took on a different meaning when Randy began to provide support and care for his parents when both developed dementia.
This program is being held in observance of The Longest Day, an observance that seeks to raise awareness about Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.

LET US BE YOUR GATEWAY TO SENIOR CARE! Finding assistance for our aging family members or for ourselves can be challenging. There are many services to meet needs and to provide information but sometimes the choices add to the confusion. Let us help!
Altenheim Resource & Referral Services has been a division of Altenheim since 1995, providing assistance to seniors and caregivers without regard to income or location. We receive no federal, state or local funding, and offer unbiased information on services and aging issues for those needing help. Free services include assessment, resource information, and free personal enrichment programs for all who want to learn.
Workshops with continuing education credit are offered for social workers and nurses. Free Personal Enrichment programs are offered on a variety of topics and are open to all who are interested. (Contact us with program suggestions!) We will also come to you to do presentations on aging, caregiving or on our Altenheim Retirement Community at no charge, and your group's size doesn't matter!
Seniors, family caregivers, and professional caregivers are encouraged to contact us for information on service options, available resources, and caregiving concerns. We can help you with the aging and caregiving journey.
