About Gracious Living Estates
Gracious Living Estates is a 65-bed Personal Care Home in Montrose, PA. It has faithfully served the seniors of Northeast Pennsylvania since 1998. GLE meets all of the food, shelter, and personal needs of its Residents.
GLE’s unit mix is roughly:
- 1/3rd Privates
- 1/3rd Semi-Private Deluxes
- 1/3rd Semi-Privates Unit types
While the majority of GLE Residents are fully mobile, a reasonable number need partial assistance with mobility or utilize wheelchairs. GLE is fully and easily accessible for all levels of mobility. Especially for Resident safety (from falls), the majority of GLE Residents receive bathing assistance.
GLE’s food is delicious and nutritious—And very flexible. Our augmented continental breakfasts, along with health-related menu flexibility, demonstrate our devotion to our Residents. GLE has an enormous Activity Room and a similarly oversized Great Room. There is also an Exercise Area, on-site Beauty Salon, and twenty-four (24) gorgeous, gently sloping acres—with visiting families of deer, wild turkeys, and red foxes.
There is no need to drive, there is no dependence on friends and/or family, there is no dependence on outside commercial or community services…GLE gets its Residents where they need to go. GLE is a Personal Care Home, colloquially providing what most other states call “assisted living.” Most simply put, we serve those with any need of help on ADL’s (Activities of Daily Living). Some Residents don’t want to cook, clean, and do laundry. Others may have impaired mobility, (earlier stages of) dementia, or other concerns. Of course, in general, we are not a SNF (nursing home). But, rather than speculate, please contact GLE with any questions if a Resident or prospective Resident is a good bit for GLE’s services.
Facts are wonderful…And they make “houses.” But warm feelings turn a “house” into a “home.” Visit Gracious Living Estates to see for yourself…And join the GLE family.

It’s true—Man does not live by bread alone. At GLE, we feed delicious, family food, restaurant-style, in our luxurious dining room, carefully prepared to meet the nutritional needs of the elderly—Three (3) meals a day, plus an evening snack. We minimize processed foods, and we strive for a balanced, healthy diet. And, did we already mention “delicious?” …
GLE’s building was painstakingly designed to meet senior needs. In addition to the excellent common areas, it is a fully secured building, with an emergency call system, staffed 24/7, with an in-house physician and podiatrist (and dentists, optometrists, and physical therapists available). It is safe, with smoke/fire alarms and sprinklers (and fire-safe area), it is fully wheelchair accessible. And your room—whether private, semi-private deluxe, or semi-private—is both cozy and spacious, and it is comfortable, laid-out to meet your needs…With your furniture or ours.
Finally—We are family. Our family is our staff, our residents, and our residents’ families and loved ones. We’re all in this together…Yes, indeed, we are family…Come visit us, and join our family
