What makes our Oneonta senior living community unique?
Heritage at The Plains at Parish Homestead is the only community within a 50-mile radius of Oneonta that offers independent living, assisted living and memory care in the same building, allowing seniors to age in place.
Located just a few miles from downtown Oneonta and West End, The Heritage is also located near a number of colleges. (Perfect for your grandchildren to stop by for a visit if they stay close to home!)
“We are located in a college town and have developed many relationships through internships. These students get to learn with our residents through nutritional, social and music programs,” says executive director Trudy Claudy. “We even have several former professors who have come to reside here as well.”
