Quarryville: Retirement Community in Lancaster County

PLEASE NOTE, DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19), OUR ENTIRE CAMPUS IS CLOSED TO VISITORS. This means ALL buildings, residential apartments, cottages, personal care, skilled nursing, and memory support facilities. If you have questions, please call 888-786-7331.

Since 1948, Quarryville Presbyterian Retirement Community has offered Christ-centered living, excellent care, and the freedom to explore new possibilities. Nestled in the beautiful countryside of Lancaster County, Quarryville is a community where neighbors become friends and friends become family.

We are committed to helping each resident live life to the fullest. We view retirement as an opportunity to embark on new adventures. You can retire the ordinary things in life—the lawnmower, the snow shovel, and the rake – so that you can nurture your passions and focus on what matters most: share your God-given talents, deepen bonds with family and friends, kindle interests or try out a new hobby, make new friends, or volunteer in the community.

We are actively monitoring all our healthcare residents and team members for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and working with the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the CDC, and the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency and following their guidelines.

All residents living in apartments and cottages are encouraged to self-monitor for signs of fever, persistent cough, shortness of breath, or sore throat. If you have signs of illness, immediately contact your physician and notify the Healthcare Response Attendant by calling 717-786-5207.

Our team members continue to follow the CDC guidelines to reduce the risk of further spread of COVID-19. These include strict handwashing procedures, the utilization of personal protective equipment as needed, and social distancing. We strongly encourage residents to do the same — wash your hands frequently, do not touch your face, limit social interactions, and maintain a 6-foot distance from any other individual.

“Very impressed with this nursing home. From the admission staff to the nursing staff they are top notch, caring, professional, dedicated people. Thanks for all the care given to my stepfather, during his last days. I am forever grateful.”

Mary, Family Member

“Originally, I didn’t know if I wanted to move to a retirement community because I thought I would lose my independence. That’s not the case here at Quarryville. One can be as independent as they wish without the problems of keeping a house and yard.”

Carmen, Resident

“I appreciate Quarryville’s Christian atmosphere, the multiplicity of things to do and the sense of security that one feels in having health care and support readily available right here on the campus should it ever be needed.”

Harold, Resident

“O God, from my youth You have taught me, and I still proclaim Your wondrous deeds. So even to old age and gray hairs, O God, do not forsake me, until I proclaim Your might to another generation, Your power to all those to come.”

Psalm 71:17-18 (ESV)
