Heritage Heights

Senior Living Community

Heritage Heights (HH) is a licensed assisted living facility located in Chelan County in Northcentral Washington. The non-profit 501(c)3 operates a resident-centered facility that has been serving seniors since 1996.

Heritage Heights has a proven 28-year track record of providing 24/7 high-quality assisted living services to seniors and medically fragile in the region. We also provide comfortable community amenities such as a fireside living and game area, TV and movie room, and space for exercise classes and workout equipment.

Our staff have special certifications for providing comprehensive assisted living and respite care services, including personal care options such as medication management, bathing, housekeeping, and nutritional services.

Non-Profit 501c3

Our roots and history are deeply embedded in our local community. Unlike for-profit facilities, we are primarily accountable to our community and its residents. We manage our pricing and expenses carefully so we can continue to accept Medicaid reimbursement for those who do not have other resources.

Deseria Bare
Executive Director

I was born and raised in the Chelan Valley. I have worked at Heritage Heights for over 20 years.

I attended Wenatchee Valley college from 2011-2014, where I completed courses related to health care. I have been a Certified Nurse’s Assistant since 2005, I have completed Nurse Delegation, the LEAD Assisted Living Executive Training Program and I am a state approved instructor for Dementia Specialty Training, Mental Health Training, Home Care Aid Training, and continuing education training.

In my off time, I love going to the water or mountains and spending time with my family.

Maria Jay, RN
Director of Wellness

My name is Maria and am the Director of Wellness at Heritage Heights Assisted living. My family and I moved to Chelan in the summer of 2020.  We had been visiting Chelan yearly since 2008 and absolutely fell in love with this community!  I have 2 young adult children and my youngest is in the class of 2024 at Chelan Highschool. My hobbies include golfing, pickleball, swimming in our lake, spending time with friends and family, traveling and watching my son play basketball!

I am originally from everywhere and nowhere at the same time as my father served in the Army. I was born in Hawaii and graduated high school in Germany and lived in many places in-between. I chose to move to Washington State for college and after receiving my nursing degree I started working immediately. The bulk of my career was on the medical, neuro and cardiac intensive care units in hospital settings,  however I also have worked in an out-patient cardiology clinic, home health and hospice nursing.

I absolutely love to contribute to and serve my community through Heritage Heights. The residents and the staff at Heritage Heights are rich in Chelan history and have embraced me as one of their own. It’s an honor to be here in this capacity.

A happy staff supports great service for our residents.

Most of our staff has been with us for 15+ years

Our History

In 1995, the need for senior housing for those that could no longer remain independent in their own homes was apparent and immediate to a group of caring citizens. The community went to work raising funds to build the facility, our non-profit 501(c)3 was created and a community board was established. The facility was completed in early 1996 and the facility was full within 30 days.

Growth at Heritage Heights

Memory Care and dedicated End-of-life suites will be included in renovation beginning March 1st, 2024

The senior population continues to grow in our region and as a result families are having to send their loved ones at least 40 miles away to receive the care they need, taking them from the security of their doctors and the community they know and family they have come to rely on. This puts additional burden on our neighboring communities who are already struggling to meet the needs of their own fragile seniors and who may not accept Medicaid payment.

Look for more about our plans to renovate and help us grow to meet the changing needs of our community with our capital campaign. COMING SOON
