When you think Life Enrichment at Homestead Village, the first names that comes to mind our Karen Longenecker and her assistant, Maureen Deibert. Karen, with Maureen's assistance, creates the wonderful programs each month detailed in the Adventures in Life. Karen has been our Life Enrichment Coordinator since 2006 and came to Homestead Village with 25 years of experience. In fact she will celebrate her tenth anniversary in August of this year. Maureen has assisted her for about five years.

Homestead Village has embarked on a wonderful improvement of our nursing care. The expansion of the Apostles Center for Care includes the addition of Young House with added kitchen, dining and living space, additional private rooms in Radcliffe House and additional outdoor living space for all the houses. When completed, the new Apostles Center will feature three separate houses: Fickes House serving 22 residents; Radcliffe House serving 21 and Young House serving 15.
The beginning of 2016 brings with it many changes for Homestead Village, including many new faces and a variety of new places!
Shortly before Christmas, on Tuesday, December 22, 2015, Homestead Village Enhanced Senior Living, Lime Spring Partners and Marietta Associates met to finalize the agreements reached on October 8, 2015. Homestead Village purchased the buildings and fifteen lots at The Farmstead which will become the fourth neighborhood of the Life Plan Community located along Marietta Avenue and celebrating its 30th anniversay in 2016.
Life Plan Community has been chosen, after a multi year effort, to replace Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) as the primary description of communities for older adults. For most people, their first question would be, "Why change?" That is a good question. The best way to answer it is to first look at history and then look at the present.
Every two years for over a decade, Homestead Village has asked our residents to participate in a satisfaction survey. The survey has two components. The first is the numerical scoring in 22 categories. The second and much larger part of the survey is the comments that are solicited within each question and overall.
