History Established in 1968 Harold and Nelma Drake recognized that while not all residents needed intense nursing care many couldn’t live independently either, so in 1968 Heritage Assisted Living was born, the very first such facility in Idaho. Harold and Nelma were guided by principals of social responsibility which ensured distinctive excellence. These principals included: * Quality care, accommodations and services, affordable for anyone to enjoy basic rights of health and dignity. * Compassionate respect towards all residents marked by personalized care. * The most committed team of staff members. Today, our standard of excellence is proudly continued by Harold and Nelma’s children, Richard and Cheryl plus grandchildren, Nathan and wife Amy in Boise and Ben and wife Dorkis in Twin Falls. We believe in providing the best care for our residents by supporting individuality, privacy and meeting the changing needs of residents. Our vibrant community ensures that our residents are enriched. Meet the Business Owner:
