Mission: The faith-based mission of mennonite home communities is to enrich the lives of residents, staff, and the community.
Programs: Mennonite home is a large faith-based non-profit 501(c)(3) continuing care retirement community in lancaster county, pa, providing a continuum of comprehensive services and care appropriate for residential living, personal care and skilled nursing residents. The campus serves residents with excellence and compassion, providing both personal care and skilled nursing healthcare options. Secure dementia care units are available in both levels of service. A comprehensive therapy department provides physical, occupational and speech therapies as determined by a physician, ensuring that residents can return to their highest level of function and independence. We provide skilled nursing services in home-like households of 16 to 29 residents. We emphasize individual dignity, self-direction and privacy through our person-centered care philosophy. The wissler run household focuses on the unique needs of short-term residents requiring therapy. Woodcrest villa is our residential living campus, providing apartment and villa accommodations and a range of services to approximately 560 residents. Volunteers are crucial to providing the comprehensive services our residents need. In the current year, 442 volunteers provided 21,750 hours of service to our residents, representing approximately $326,250 of donated services. Our benevolent care fund allows us to honor our 115 year tradition of caring for financially challenged residents. Last year we provided $5 million dollars of uncompensated care to 75 residents. Approximately 35% of our residents need this financial assistance every year.
