Following much anticipation and anxious new residents, Harrison Heights Senior Village greeted the La Vista public with a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, April 26.  Distinguished guests included Charles Isom, District Director for Congressman Lee Terry, Honorable Mayor Doug Kindig of La Vista, Craig Howell, Chief Service Officer from Honorable Mayor Jim Suttle of Omaha’s office, and Sarpy County Chamber of Commerce President, Wendy Richey.

Conveniently located at 7544 Gertrude Street, Harrison Heights offers both 1 and 2 bedroom suites with many of the services bundled into the rent structure to make them more cost effective. This type of senior living is unique and virtually absent in the Omaha region with the exception of Woodbridge Senior Village – another Calamar property with the same concept – located in the Woodbridge area.

Harrison Heights bridges the gap between the low-cost subsidized housing and the upper echelon of the high rent retirement communities.  They’ve positioned themselves to accommodate and support the middle income bracket and the response has been very positive.

Harrison Heights officially welcomed its new residents on April 1st and is quickly filling up as seniors appreciate the independent living community and recognize its value.
