About Us

Home » About Us

North Willow is a brand new, locally owned and operated community and we’re thrilled to welcome you.  

Our community has a quiet, resort-like feel, even while it is conveniently located next to St. Vincent Hospital and in the active West 86th Street corridor of Indianapolis. We’re within walking distance of Indianapolis restaurants, coffee shops, pharmacies and our Kroger store, but transportation is also provided.

North Willow offers well-appointed Independent Living as well as thoughtful, expert Assisted Living and Memory Care, designed to encourage independence, dignity and well-being.

A beautiful building is important, and North Willow has all the modern amenities and comfort you would expect. But it’s what happens inside these walls that makes our community special.

The Varietas Memory Care Program relies on the things we learn about your loved one to comfort and connect with them in a warm and nurturing environment. We are trained in the award-winning Behavior-based Ergonomics Therapy (BBET), a personalized, non-pharmacological therapy for seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia, designed to engage seniors, reduce their stress, depression, falls and medication use. Our licensed nursing staff is available to residents around the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to monitor healthcare needs and supervise personal care. Residents may also take advantage of an onsite clinic that is staffed by St. Vincent practitioners specially trained in the care of seniors. 

The President and founding partner of Traditions Management lives and works just one mile from North Willow. His commitment to the area and members of the community are something he and his team feel very strongly about.

Our Wellness Director not only creates Personal Service Plans for each resident when they join the community, she and her team routinely reassesses residents for emergent needs. Everyone makes it their job to understand what makes a resident happy.

We believe in the power of good nutrition, fellowship and freshly prepared, home-cooked meals, so we employ an Executive Chef to plan our menus, train our staff and create a delicious restaurant-style dining experience. We ask for our residents’ suggestions and recipes to incorporate comfort foods and personal favorites and we serve breakfast throughout the day.

Above all, we make room for the important things over the routines of the day. Sitting together and listening to a story, holding a hand, learning something new about a resident’s life and remembering we are in the presence of people who have shaped our world. These moments don’t show up in our job descriptions, but they make up the most meaningful parts of our day. We know how important they are.
