Why give to Heritage?

As a trusted partner in Chautauqua County since 1886, Heritage has become a leader in senior care and a vital part of the healthcare system. We are proud to be one of the largest career providers in the county and to be using our voice to lead industry change for residents and staff. With the changing landscape of senior care we are more committed than ever to providing quality care, engaging careers, and community support.

But we can’t do this without you. By giving to Heritage, you provide local access to industry-leading, long-term care. You make a difference in the lives of frontline caregivers by helping close the Medicaid funding gap to ensure competitive, sustainable careers. By giving to Heritage, you make an important difference in your community.

Don’t delay, give today.

What does Heritage need funding for right now?

Medicaid Funding Gap Leaves $810 million Shortage for Nursing Homes

Medicaid pays for 75% of the care provided in nursing homes. Whether residents rely on Medicaid or not, this impacts 96,500 nursing home residents across New York State. The answer to nursing home funding challenges is to ensure that Medicaid rates match the current cost of care for your loved ones. 

“I want to express my sincere appreciation for Heritage Ministries’ dedication to others. They are all very much appreciated.”
– R. Blake and family –
