From Presbyterian Home of Maryland:
[Towson, Maryland] December 3, 2013 – Presbyterian Home of Maryland, a faith-based not-for-profit organization, plans to develop the first continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in Harford County on a property located on Fountain Green Road in Bel Air.
The new Presbyterian Home community will offer residents ages 60 and up a variety of living choices ranging from apartments to single villa homes in a neighborhood setting. All residents will enjoy access to dining, housekeeping, maintenance and grounds keeping services as well as scheduled transportation to area shopping and activities. Planned amenities include multiple dining facilities and a pub, a wellness and fitness center, a convenience market and billiards, cards and library areas.
Unlike other senior communities, a CCRC provides a continuum of care on one campus including independent living apartments and villas, in home care, comprehensive nursing services, assisted living and memory support. Dietary and healthy-living counseling and case management services including supportive care, visitation and counseling will also be available to residents.
“Presbyterian Home of Maryland has a strong legacy of providing compassionate care for seniors for over 130 years,” said Susan Shea, president and CEO of Presbyterian Home of Maryland. “We look forward to creating a new community to meet the evolving expectations of today’s seniors and to expand our mission to Harford County, which we believe is underserved in retirement living options.”
Director of Harford County Economic Development Jim Richardson is an enthusiastic supporter of the project, saying, “Presbyterian Home is an outstanding organization which has been working for several years to bring their first class facility to Harford County. I couldn’t be more pleased that our citizens will have the opportunity to stay near their family and friends as they move into retirement, and know that Presbyterian Home will provide a quality, caring and healthy venue.”
