Lutheran SeniorLife Now Managing the

Heritage Valley Senior Living Community

We are pleased to announce that, as of August 1, 2022, Lutheran SeniorLife is providing management services to the residents of the Heritage Valley Senior Living Community (formerly The Willows). Lutheran SeniorLife is a faith-based provider who, for more than 100 years, has provided quality care in residential living and personal care facilities, home health, rehabilitation, Alzheimer’s memory support and more in western Pennsylvania.  


The Heritage Valley Senior Living Community consists of Independent Living, Personal Care and Memory Care residences, and is conveniently located across the street from Heritage Valley Kennedy hospital.


Independent Living is perfect for seniors in good health who are looking for a comfortable, attractive maintenance-free setting. You can engage in a wide range of social and educational activities, make new friends, and entertain visiting family and friends.


If you need assistance with caring for yourself and managing your daily routine, our Personal Care residence is the one for you. We combine all the comforts of home with the activity and security of a small community, and we will create a plan tailored to fit your individual needs. 


We also offer a neighborhood designed for the specific needs of seniors with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Our Memory Care residence is designed to create meaningful and personal routines based on each resident’s life story, and offers a home-like environment conducive to both emotional health and physical well-being.


We believe that moving into the Heritage Valley Senior Living Community will enhance your lifestyle and improve your outlook on life. For information on the Heritage Valley Senior Living Community, or to schedule a personal tour, please call 412-331-6139 or CLICK HERE.
