Heritage House operating through the pandemic


Amid COVID-19, assisted-living facilities are under scrutiny like never before, but The Heritage Assisted Living -- independently owned and operated by Trevas Younger since July 2016 – is moving through the pandemic.

The facility consists of three adjacent Heritage Houses: 846, 854, and 866 Lettuce Lane, all in Las Cruces.

Younger said she employs “32 heroes,” who are well trained in person-centered care.

“We offer help with activities of daily living,” she said, “[including] grooming, bathing, transferring, exercising, interesting and fun activities, meals, medication management and friendships. We are not a nursing home.”

Younger said The Heritage House follows strict protocols around safety and sanitation.

“33 percent of staff and residents are tested weekly, and so far, we remain negative from COVID-19,” she said. “Understanding the serious nature of this pandemic, we are committed to preventing its spread.“

Younger said she and her staff endeavor each day to attend to each resident in a way that makes them feel at home.

“We are small community living,” she said. “No one gets lost in the crowd here. We have a brand new, clean house with beautiful, spacious private and companion rooms now available.”

Younger said she welcomes inquiries about virtual tours or requests for information.
