Providence Place Now Leads Lancaster Senior Facility

COLLEGEVILLE PA – Providence Place Senior Living, the Hummelstown PA corporation that operates the older adult community Providence Place at the Collegeville Inn, 400 Ridge Pike, said it “took over leadership” at a related community, the facility formerly known as Country Meadows of Lancaster.

The change was announced Tuesday (Feb. 15, 2022) and the facility, located at 1380 Elm Ave., Lancaster, has been renamed as Providence Place of Lancaster.

Providence Place and Country Meadows Retirement Communities are “sister” companies with common business ties, its media release explained. Both are owned by the family of former Pennsylvania Gov. George M. Leader. Current Providence Place President and CEO David Leader, son of the founder, earlier served as chief operating officer of Country Meadows.

The company offers independent living, assisted living, and memory support services to seniors on a total of seven campuses in Central and Eastern PA. Providence Place focuses on helping residents to age-in-place and said it features “exceptional quality of life,” “rates (that) tend to be more economical than most,” and a culture “of kindness, caring and respect for others.”

Its two-stage memory support program provides “daily support for early dementia in a non-secure setting.” When needed it also offers “more continuous memory care assistance for those with moderate to late-stage dementia in a secure neighborhood.” Its primary communication techniques in memory support, it said, “follow the Positive Approach to Care developed by Teepa Snow.”

The company has planned an open house at the Elm Avenue, Lancaster facility to feature its memory care floor on Tuesday (March 22) from 5-7 p.m. The event is free to attend and open to the public. For more information, call 717-392-4100.
