Heritage Woods of Benton is the only affordable assisted living community in Franklin County, Illinois.
Nestled next to a wooded area just east of Franklin Hospital in Benton, Illinois, the community is designed to serve adults 65 and older of all incomes who may need some help to maintain their independence.
Benton is the County Seat for Franklin County and is located along Interstate 57 between Marion and Mt. Vernon.
Heritage Woods is certified to operate through the Illinois Supportive Living program and serves as a wonderful alternative to a nursing home or to struggling alone at home and especially benefits seniors who cannot afford private pay assisted living.

The building’s layout consists of four-corridors that meet in the middle, where a variety of community areas are available for residents and their families to enjoy. Elevators provide convenient access to and from the second floor.
The exterior of the building features two lovely porches on either side of the canopied-covered front entrance as well as a patio off the dining room.
