December 22, 2020 — Senior officials for Moravian Manor Communities, Luthercare, and Pleasant View Communities are pleased to announce a new partnership with Pleasant View Communities in their jointly-owned and operated home care agency, Your Neighborhood Connection.

J. David Swartley, CEO of Moravian Manor Communities; Carl R. McAloose, CEO of Luthercare; and Jonathan E. Hollinger, CEO of Pleasant View Communities each share in the mission, benefits and importance of home care and in-home supportive services to each of their communities as well as the surrounding area.

According to Mr. McAloose, “Having another excellent partner join Your Neighborhood Connection enables us to more fully care for not only our individual resident communities, but also brings additional high-quality resources and care givers to the greater Lititz area and surrounding communities.  I am personally thrilled to have Pleasant View share in our collective vision!”

Said Mr. Swartley, “I am very excited to have Pleasant View Communities join Your Neighborhood Connection.  The combination of three, solid, faith-based organizations will continue to build on our goal of servicing the broader community in addition to our residents.  Collaboration enables us to continue to offer excellent services at the best price possible.  It is likely that this model will lead to greater areas of collaboration in the future.  I commend the visionary leadership of all three ministries as we strive to grow into the future.”

Mr. Hollinger stated, “The landscape of senior living is changing rapidly.  There is an increasing desire to age in place as well as a growing need for care in the home.  Partnering with Luthercare and Moravian Manor Communities helps each organization be better stewards of existing resources and provide a larger breadth of services to the greater community.” 

All three confirmed that regarding their vision for the collaboration, there will be a continuing commitment to serving the unmet and underserved needs of the area’s senior population.

Your Neighborhood Connection, with offices located at 706 Rothsville Road, Lititz, offers a comprehensive range of companion care services, personal care services, and memory care and end-of-life supportive services. Additionally, Your Neighborhood Connection is one of very few agencies to offer Licensed Practical Nurse Services to allow for administration of some medications and treatments.
