A community planned by residents,
Pittsburgh presents a model for retirement
What distinguishes Longwood at Oakmont? You’ll find few Pittsburgh retirement communities where you have so many choices, from the home you select to the activities that intrigue you. You’ll also find few places where residents have such a powerful influence on community life - selecting and running the programs, getting involved in committees, even holding two positions on our Board of Directors.
We’ve planned carefully for that kind of environment, since we’re not-for-profit: guided by a mission to serve residents, not driven to generate dividends for stockholders. We invest all revenue after expenses to enhance our community. This strong direction comes from our sponsor, Presbyterian SeniorCare, a regional network of living and care options for older adults or persons with disabilities, serving all faiths since 1928. Respected for its charitable work, the Presbyterian SeniorCare Foundation helped build the new Hanna HealthCare Center at Longwood through donations from current Longwood residents.
Above all, prospective residents should know that Longwood at Oakmont meets the highest standards in detail, by every important measurement: We are accredited by the CARF-CCAC (formerly the Continuing Care Accreditation Commission). This independent, non-profit organization evaluates CCRCs for financial stability and quality of care, using 1,700 criteria. Only 11% of all LifeCare communities in America have earned this seal of approval. Longwood’s certification, achieved in 2001 and reaffirmed in 2011, is one more reason you can look to the future here with confidence.
