Independent senior living at Atria McCandless means you can spend your days experiencing life as you wish – enjoying the amenities, friendships and engaging events – while the dedicated staff tends to the daily tasks of cleaning, cooking and driving.
Atria McCandless is a licensed Personal Care Home, offering amenities and supportive services that are tailored to meet your individual needs, including transportation, medication administration and daily living assistance.
There’s a difference between personal care homes and assisted living communities in Pennsylvania.
Licensed to offer personal care services, Atria McCandless provides amenities and services similar to those of assisted living communities. This includes similar apartment layouts, scheduled social activities, chef-prepared meals, housekeeping, transportation services and assistance with activities of daily living and medication administration. However, due to state law, we do not offer skilled care services. If such care is required, a third-party provider can be hired to perform these services in our communities.
