    The Heritage is a small, homey, family environment where seniors are welcome to live and celebrate their life. We have a great stable staff, who take a real interest in the lives of our resident family. Our staff has been known to bring their children in to visit to offset the missed grandchildren or great -grandchild. We are focused on the joys of life not the losses. We will get Therapies in to ensure our folks can go for that all important walk or do their gardening in our wonderful flower filled garden. Baking of cookies and cakes for ourselves or others is routine. We are close to New Mexico State University, yet located in a small community of homes in our rock walled neighborhood. If laughter, smiles, happy hearts are important to you please contact us.
    All genders welcome
