Bob: "We selected Eicher's Family Home for Mom. It's very clean and the residents are well taken care of, which you can tell by the way they look. They are dressed and they don't sit in wheelchairs, but in nice recliners. The food is great. The staff is very friendly. It's great. They have activities and the food is all homemade. I've seen some of the food and it looks wonderful. We're all pleased with it."

Judith714803: "Maybe because it was a Sunday afternoon, I don’t think there were too many activities going on at Harmon House. There were a lot of people sitting in wheelchairs right outside their doors, looking very bored and sad. Other than that it seemed clean, no frills, and it looked like it could use some modernizing.

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Connellsville

Connellsville is a small city that sits on the banks of the Youghiogheny River in Fayettville County, PA. This city, which has a history that stretches back to the early-1800s when it was most notable for its coal-mining and metallurgical coke production, is home to just 7,500 residents. Of these, about 21 percent are over the age of 60. To support its aging citizens, the Connellsville area offers 39 assisted living communities, two of which are in the city proper and another 37 that are located in the surrounding region. These facilities are categorized as assisted living residences or personal care homes, depending on the level of care they provide. Assisted living residences are licensed by the Department of Aging, Office of Long-Term Living, Division of Licensing, and personal care homes are licensed by the Department of Public Welfare, Adult Residential Licensing
