Our Position on the Pending Assisted Living Licensure in Pennsylvania
The State of Pennsylvania has proposed a new Assisted Living Licensure (AL), bringing significant change in the continuum of care for seniors. Ecumenical Retirement Community is now licensed as a Personal Care community. This new category does not adversely affect or change our Personal Care license status in any way.
We are assessing the proposed healthcare services and related cost implications involved in the new AL licensure and will only participate if it ultimately benefits the quality care of our residents, they, their families and our co-workers expect us to deliver.
