A Community of Faith and Fellowship
Type of Community
Calvary Homes is an independent, not-for-profit Continuing Care Retirement Community.
Range of Services
Residential Living; Personal Care with Memory Support; Skilled Nursing; short-term Rehabilitation; Respite Care as available.
Calvary Homes is conveniently located in a beautiful suburban setting on the edge of the City of Lancaster. We offer comfortable and well-appointed homes and apartments of various sizes for gracious retirement living. Personal care is offered in either private or semi-private rooms, as well as in our newly redesigned health care center (now with mostly private rooms and baths). The two options provide person-centered care in two separate neighborhoods for those needing specialized services.
Residents may choose from several meal plans – including a pay-as-you-go option – offered in our popular Grandview Café that’s open daily from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. A meal plan, while recommended, is not required.
Calvary Homes understands the importance of pets for their owners. We welcome dogs (cottages only), cats, caged birds and fish in residential living. Dogs must be licensed and pet owners are required to provide verification that pets are current on vaccinations and immunizations. A pet security deposit is required.
What Makes Calvary Homes Unique
“The fact that we are one family bound by the love of
the Lord.” – Calvary Homes Resident
In 1961, a group of visionaries from Calvary Church in Lancaster, understood that God’s work includes the support and nurture of older adults. Particularly for Calvary Homes, this includes missionaries and Christian servants moving from their prior fields of labor to new ministry opportunities in their senior years.
By faith, these leaders boldly stepped forward, creating a separate not-for-profit ministry from the church to serve older adults by supporting their ability to age successfully and bring glory to God.
As a result of their visionary insight, Calvary Homes became the first continuing care retirement community in the region and the first Medicare-certified nursing facility in Lancaster County. Later growth addressed the growing demand for independent living and has led to a lovely community of almost 400 residents.
Our uniqueness, however, isn’t our prime suburban location, our facilities or our positive outcomes from regulatory inspections, but in the joyful and grateful hearts of our residents. Calvary is a Christ-centered community of Faith and Fellowship and approximately one-third of our residents have served in mission fields and Christian ministry. Their experiences and faithfulness serve as an inspiration for all residents and unites us as one family.
