Understanding Priority Wait Lists at Luther Acres & St. John’s Herr Estate

In the competitive senior living market in Lancaster County, many prospective residents appreciate the opportunity to plan ahead and reserve exactly the style of cottage or apartment they want.

At St. John’s Herr Estate and Luther Acres, our senior living communities in Columbia and Lititz, respectively, we offer the opportunity to join a Priority Wait List. The Priority Wait List is for individuals who are seriously interested in moving to a Luthercare community.


What Is Personal Care at Luthercare?

Seniors today are living healthier, more active lives than ever before – and that approach certainly continues when individuals move to personal care at Luthercare.

Each of Luthercare’s three senior living communities offers personal care – a supportive, caring, living experience that provides residents with services and support tailored to meet individual needs. The program offers as much or as little assistance as each resident requires while giving residents’ family members peace of mind.
