Supportive Services for Residents in Apartments: Enhancing Independence and Dignity
Unlike any other retirement community in Lancaster County or its surrounding areas, at Homestead Village, we’re licensed to provide residents with personal senior care services for short or long-term periods right in their apartments through the Supportive Services program.
This unique program allows residents to thrive where they are and not have to relocate or downsize to another part of campus if they need personal care. These senior living options also mean that couples can stay together in their apartment, even if only one person requires care.
- Three meals daily in our dining room
- Bed making/linen changes
- Weekly housekeeping
And one or more of the following services:
- Wheelchair transports
- Light daily housekeeping
- Medication management
- Hygiene assistance
- Continence management reminders
- Appointment scheduling
- Periodic checking—seven days a week through the 24-hour period
- Health management
Because support needs vary from person to person, we design an individualized support plan for each participant, with input from the resident, family, and staff. As the resident’s needs change, we revise the support plan in consultation with an interdisciplinary team. If the resident regains independence and can complete daily living activities, we’ll discontinue the support plan once the minimum contract period is complete.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Advantages Does A Life Plan Community Offer?
There are many advantages to moving to a Life Plan Community such as Homestead Village. If you desire to maintain an active, maintenance-free, independent lifestyle, then Homestead Village is for you. There’s also plenty of cultural and recreational opportunities to get involved in.
Should you ever require personal care in the future, you’ll rest easier knowing that personal care is available. Additionally, living in a Life Plan Community can be more affordable than staying in your home without any chores and upkeep.
What Makes Homestead Village A “Personal Care” Community?
At Homestead Village, we offer housing, meals, and a variety of personal care services in our apartments—just several reasons we’re able to be licensed for “Personal Care.” Additionally, at our Apostles Center, we also offer skilled nursing care and different levels of care in a secure memory support neighborhood.
Does Homestead Village Offer Safe Transportation Options?
We do! Transportation is another aspect of our campus services. A lack of safe and reliable transport is a significant concern for many seniors who depend on them to get to appointments, shopping centers, and local grocery stores. At Homestead Village, we remove this hindrance by providing our residents with a comprehensive transportation program. Additionally, transportation to all doctors’ visits within a 5-mile radius is free of charge. Because of our campus location, this radius includes all the major health campuses and hospitals in central Lancaster County.
