(West Okoboji, Iowa) – As you walk in to Jean (Tina) Hansen’s apartment it is evident she is a collector.


As you glance around you will see Cabbage Patch Kids, beautiful antiques, but most noticeable is her love of everything Elvis!


Due to health issues Jean made the decision to leave her home in Elkhorn to live closer to her family near Milford. She had lived and taught school in Elkhorn for 45 years so it was not an easy move.


Her sister went in search for a place for Jean to live.


“I always loved to collect things. I’d see something, I liked it and it would go from there.” — Jean Hansen


Her sister, brother and Jean all liked Heritage Landing because you didn’t have to purchase your apartment. There were no monthly association fees or a long-term lease.


The apartments rented month to month and everything was included. She liked that the noon meal was served daily. Jean also liked that there were two bedrooms as she wanted the extra space for her collections.

(West Okoboji, Iowa) – Coming to live at Good Samaritan Society – Heritage Landing has given us a new lease on life.


Originally, we are from Newton, Iowa, where we lived for a total of 72 years. We lived in a two story home with a basement garage. We have five boys who have grown up and moved away.


We stayed in Newton caring for our parents and in-laws until we started experiencing some health issues of our own, including both of us having knee surgeries. Going up and down all the steps in our house became a challenge.


Our sons talked to us about moving closer to one of them. They all live in different towns. We had spent time visiting all five of our boys, and we decided we liked the town of Milford, Iowa, the best. Our son, Joe, his wife, Carrie, live in Milford with our 13 and 15 year-old grandsons. All of our other grandkids are older and already have left home.


We called Joe and Carrie and told them that we had made our decision so they immediately began to look for us a place to live. We looked at other options but we kept coming back to Heritage Landing.
