Find the two essentials in a senior living community: quality and affordability
Most central PA families looking for a senior living community for an older family member have two main requirements: it must be affordable for their family and provide excellent care for their loved one.
Families often feel they could never afford a high-quality community offering several senior living care levels. But nearly as often, after a little research, they are pleasantly surprised to discover they were mistaken.
Compare costs and services when considering senior living options
If your family is starting to look for a senior living home, we suggest beginning your research by talking with acquaintances who have made that decision. Also, you can seek solid financial advice from a financial advisor, trust officer or estate attorney, while a realtor can provide a fair market value of your home.
After you have one or more senior living communities in mind, meet with the admissions directors. They can provide you with information on specific benefits and costs, as well as possible financial options to make your retirement living affordable and your decision easier.
Be sure to consider expenses you will eliminate by living in a senior living community. You won’t have to prepare regular meals, do laundry and maintain a property. That’s why many residents of senior living communities find they can eliminate many expenses in their new living situation and have more benefits. We invite you to use our interactive tool to make this comparison easier for you. Living at Ecumenical Retirement Community may cost less than your current living situation.
To find the best retirement communities in central Pennsylvania, you also will want to compare their services. Ask if they offer consultation with dietitians, various therapies (physical, occupational, and speech), round-the-clock access to nursing staff, support groups, salon and spa services, game room, theater and library. Ecumenical provides all of these.
