Perched on Crowley’s Ridge, the South Wind Heights retirement community offers a relaxed senior living experience in historic Jonesboro, AR. Our independent living community is located on a tree-lined lane near a main road that connects you with many local amenities. There are several markets, pizzerias and cafes within two blocks of your front door. South Wind Heights is also only 6 miles from NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital.
Just an hour from Memphis, Jonesboro is a southern city with a lot to offer. Enjoy the modern art on display at the Bradbury Art Museum or learn more about the area’s fascinating history and heritage at The Arkansas State University Museum. Both are only three miles away. When you want to stretch your legs, it’s just 15 minutes to the lakeside nature trails at Craighead Forest Park.
South Wind Heights is an award-winning, independent senior living community. Awards include the 2020 Great Place to Work certification, the 2019 Great Place to Work certification, and the 2018 Great Place to Work certification.

People from the outside community also frequent our salon for manicures and pedicures, ear candling, ear piercing, and paraffin treatments.

South Wind Heights residents enjoy a variety of health and fitness activities, from weekly group exercise classes to anytime access to on-site fitness equipment. We also have an onsite physical therapist if you're ever in need of those services.

Sit with friends or invite your family for a special occasion in our private dining room. Each meal is designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of community members.
Our chef gathers recipes from residents to feature in the "resident choice" section of our menu. He also hosts a monthly roundtable for feedback and suggestions. South Wind Heights offers a 24-hour snack bar.
Make Memories Exploring the Surrounding Community
There’s so much to explore in the Jonesboro area and South Wind Heights makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.
Complimentary transportation provides residents with easy access to a variety of local activities, events and attractions, including a monthly “Lunch Bunch” outing to resident-selected restaurants.
Life is Never Boring
South Wind Heights' comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.
To relax, kick back on the porch or wander on-site paths under crepe myrtle and pear trees.
Pets Make Life Better
Furry friends are welcomed as residents at South Wind Heights. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.

Lend a Helping Hand
We have empowered residents to become resident ambassadors. These individuals have often lived in the community for quite some time and enjoy helping new residents get acclimated to senior living. They encourage new residents to take their time settling in and them feel comfortable in their new home.
Outside volunteers also come into the community from organizations from Civitan, Boy Scouts, and the local high school.
Join us for a Complimentary Meal
At Holiday Retirement, we love our food and know you will too. We invite you and a guest to join us for a flavorful meal and the opportunity to see first-hand if independent retirement living is right for you.
