Bethlen Communities is dedicated to nurturing the spiritual, emotional, social, intellectual and physical needs of every person, every day.
Bethlen Communities Operates as a faith-based, non-profit continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in historic Ligonier, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. Accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, or CARF, our comprehensive services are designed to offer a person-centered lifestyle for each resident while maintaining a high standard for quality of care.
An independent and active lifestyle is encouraged throughout Bethlen Communities. We strive to help seniors within and beyond our community to increase active life expectancy, a longer life free of disability. When limitations occur, the skilled and professional staff at Bethlen are there to assist with medical, therapeutic, and spiritual care. Regardless of physical or mental limitations, Bethlen’s goal is to help each person served maintain the “Spirit for Living."
Bethlen Communities services include skilled nursing and rehabilitation at Bethlen Home; personal care services at Ligonier Gardens; an independent living retirement community; in-home Companion Care and Home Health and Hospice services; and our newest addition, the Graceful Aging Wellness Center which includes our Lifelong Learning Center. The Graceful Aging Wellness Center takes a proactive, preventive approach to aging. Wellness is positive and affirming. It’s recognizing that you are in a powerful position to make a significant impact on your health today and in the future. Graceful Aging Wellness Center engages adults age 50 and up in programs and opportunities that increase the joy of living a happier more enriching life.
The Seven Dimensions of Wellness are defining instruments that lead to opportunities in creating wellbeing.
