Fairmount loves to find ways to keep our residents active and fit! With two fitness rooms on campus and extensive walking trails winding throughout the 50+ acre campus overlooking the scenic vista of rural Lancaster County, there are many options for our residents to stay in shape. For those who prefer exercising with others, Fairmount offers a number of exercise classes led by Fairmount team members.
Fairmount has been blessed with strong support from our residents and the broader local community. Over 250 volunteers support the mission of Fairmount and partner with us in many aspects of Fairmount life: taking care of flower beds, transporting residents to doctor appointments, organizing and coordinating activities and special events, performing special musical programs, sewing masks, creating quilts for our auction and conducting personal visits with our residents. Our annual events, such as Heritage Day and Benefit Auction and Chicken Barbecue, rely on the support of a multitude of volunteers. Many of our residents are actively involved volunteering in a wide variety of community organizations.
What Makes Fairmount Unique
Views. Values. Value: For over 50 years, Fairmount has provided some of the best views of the surrounding Lancaster County countryside. But, we provide much more than stunning vistas. Our Christ-centered focus and Mennonite values drive us to enrich the lives of our residents, and the broader community, with compassion, quality care and a commitment to dignity. We accomplish all this at very affordable prices.
Enjoy the safety and peace of mind that comes from senior living in a Life Plan Community. When you choose Fairmount as your home, you experience lively and friendly neighborhoods in our Residential Living apartments and cottages. What’s more, living at Fairmount frees you to spend more time
with family and friends, pursue new activities and hobbies or engage in favorite pastimes.
Active Residents: You’ll love the breathtaking views while walking the trails around campus. The Wheat Ridge courtyard is the perfect place to gather with friends to play games on the recently installed Bocce court or sit and relax by the fire pit. For those needing a little more practice before hitting the links, the court can also serve as a putting green. In addition to the multiple outdoor opportunities to connect with your friends and neighbors, Fairmount provides opportunities to connect indoors. You can join friends in the fitness centers, libraries, wood shop or lounges. Feel free to check your emails or do online searching on one of our computers available for our residents’ use. If you want to host a family gathering or holiday meal, you are able to do so in one of our community rooms. If you don’t feel like cooking, just walk on over to our recently renovated Cat’s Back Café to enjoy a taste of Lancaster County cuisine. Fairmount offers daily transportation across campus, as well as for scheduled shopping trips and outings, musical programs and special events.
Involved Community: Fairmount is passionate about supporting and enriching our residents’ faith and helping them to maintain deep spiritual roots. We offer regular chapel services and Bible studies led by volunteers or by our full-time in-house chaplain. Our chaplain is also very involved with one-on-one visits and has developed many creative ways to encourage our residents’ faith even during the pandemic.
