Our specially trained team of healthcare professionals and personal care assistants are available
24 hours a day and 7 days a week. At Quarryville, you will find a renewed sense of spirit,
independence, and an opportunity to “Retire the Ordinary and Live the Extraordinary” because
daily tasks won’t get in the way of living your best life.
Quarryville is a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) and provides all levels of living on
campus: residential living, personal care living, skilled nursing care, and memory support.
No, assisted living and personal care are different long-term care options. Definitions, services, and regulations vary from state to state. In the past, the two terms were interchangeable, and many people may not distinguish between them; however, in 2011, Pennsylvania implemented new regulations that separated these two types of care and licensed them separately.
Personal care services are licensed and inspected by the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services. These regulations are aimed at protecting the health, safety, and well-being of residents. There are no federal regulations for personal care homes.
Personal care provides residential living with assistance and supervision. State regulations protect the health, safety, and well-being of the residents. There are no federal regulations for personal care and there is no third-party reimbursement.
Skilled nursing accommodations are medical facilities that are inspected and licensed by the Pennsylvania Department of Health and must meet both state and federal regulations. There are third party reimbursements (Medicare and Medicaid) for those who qualify based on clinical criteria and/or income. Quarryville also is licensed for skilled nursing care.
It all depends on an individual’s personal situation. Sometimes an individual may be uncomfortable living alone due to concerns about falling, becoming ill, safety issues, challenges with medication management, personal hygiene, loneliness, boredom, nutrition, or difficulty completing routine household tasks and responsibilities. Family members also may be unable to provide all the support an individual may need daily. Quarryville’s Personal Care living is for individuals who need less intensive help than skilled nursing care.
Quarryville’s memory support services provide care for individuals with dementia-related illnesses and other forms of cognitive impairment. Residents who require specialized care enjoy private accommodations in a peaceful, home-like environment.
Both our Personal Care Living and Skilled Nursing Facility have secure memory support areas, staffed by dementia-certified, licensed caregivers. Our team understands the importance of preserving our residents’ quality of life and provides support in a warm, gracious, and caring Christ-centered community.
