History / Mission

Our history of helping you get the most of out of life started over 100 years ago when William and Ruth Chopson opened our first community in Warren, Indiana in 1910. In 1937, Dr. D.C. Souder, a pioneer in long-term care, took over operations, continuing a strong commitment to compassion and respect.

Dr. Souder’s legacy was carried on by his son, Philip Souder, who served as administrator from 1964 through 1996. Under his leadership, the Home thrived, as did the relationship between our facility and the community of Warren. Today, the tradition continues with the third generation of Souder leadership.

David P. Souder currently serves as chief executive officer and administrator. His goal is to carry on his family’s commitment of providing the best care in a Christian atmosphere. It’s this rich history of dedication and commitment that serves as the foundation for our heritage of caring.

Heritage Pointe was founded on the philosophy of helping all people, regardless of race, creed, sex or religious preference, to fully enjoy their retirement years, a philosophy of fostering friendship, belonging, security, and dignity; of respecting individual privacy and independence while offering professional and thoughtful guidance.

Heritage Communities are owned and operated by United Methodist Memorial Home (UMMH).
