The Senior Wishes story began in 2013, when ideas were being discussed on how the UCHS might best serve the senior citizen population of Western New York. UCHS, founding company of Fox Run at Orchard Park and the United Church Manor in West Seneca, was looking for a program that could bring real value to the aged. Wendy Miller Backman had volunteered with a small wish program years earlier and began describing it to Mike Maloney, CEO of Fox Run Orchard Park and UCHS Inc. at that time.

Mike and Wendy began a series of brain storming sessions and much research and realized that although there were a handful of these wish programs throughout the country, none existed in Western NY. UCHS decided to begin the Senior Wishes program to foster respect and appreciation for seniors by granting life enriching wishes!
