Landis Communities Announcements
Landis Communities is committed to offering many options, because retirement does not follow a one-size-fits-all mentality. Envisioning the goals that are most important and unique to you is essential for planning. Please consider attending this seminar to learn ways persons age 40-85 can plan for future care—as well as the key differences in a long-term care plan that members experience with a Continuing Care at Home membership. Landis Communities offers this in collaboration with the Quaker organization, Friends Life Care. The next seminar will take place at East Petersburg Mennonite Church, Wed. February 5 from 1:30-3:00 pm. The church is located at 6279 Main Street in East Petersburg. For more information and to RSVP, please call 844-2Landis (844-252-6347).
