Ground Breaking Ceremony for New Addition

We recently held a groundbreaking ceremony to announce we have started construction on a new 29-bed neighborhood addition to our current senior living facility in Lewisburg.

Since opening in January 2015,we have been at full capacity with a waiting list, sometimes as long as 15 people. “You can't imagine how difficult it is for us to not be able to accept everyone who needs our care,” said President/CEO, Colleen Fritz, RN, PCHA. “This second neighborhood will allow us to extend the care we provide to seniors who need and deserve to be in a community that is best suited for their specific needs”, she continued.

Mirroring the current facility, the new 16,000 sq. ft. addition features an innovative building design to create a calm, safe, and engaging environment. In addition to the resident suites, the new neighborhood will also house a dining area, private dining room, activity room, beauty salon, and office/conference areas. The two neighborhoods will share a sun room and the enclosed courtyard and garden.

Heritage Springs Memory Care is the only facility in the Susquehanna Valley that is solely focused on people with Alzheimer's and other types of dementia. “We are bringing about a better quality of life to our residents, while bringing peace and comfort to their families,” said Fritz.

Heritage Springs Memory Care will begin reviewing resident applications for the new neighborhood this summer.
