Bleiler Caring Cottage:
Offering Fulfillment & Opportunity

"It's a nice house. Everybody here is nice. We're like a family and everybody gets along. I'm thankful for being here." ~ Kevin Koch, resident.

The Bleiler Caring Cottage, located on the campus of the Masonic Village at Elizabethtown, provides support services, growth opportunities and loving attention for residents with mild to moderate developmental disabilities. This nurturing home, which has been completely remodeled including all new flooring and paint, a new kitchen and new furniture, currently has two openings.

Personalized services are offered 24 hours a day, seven days a week for residents and include accommodations, three nutritious meals, social and recreational programs, transportation and assistance with activities of daily living.

The staff embrace a holistic approach to providing exceptional care for the mind, body and spirit. Supervised activities are arranged with the adults' developmental goals in mind to recognize their talents and explore their creativity. Residents are also encouraged to seek out their own interests and career opportunities within the local community, as they desire.

If you or anyone you know has a loved one who is 18 years or older and may be looking for a caring home for his or her special needs, or would like additional information about this unique program, please call the Outreach Program at (800) 462-7664.

Residential Living Availability: Enjoying the Simple Life

At this time, Residential Living has immediate openings offering a variety of floor plan selections, including studio, married couple suite and single deluxe accommodations (which include a living room, bedroom, bathroom and in select units, a kitchenette). Unique to the Elizabethtown campus, Residential Living offers an independent, apartment-style setting with all the comforts of home, but without the hassle of meal preparation.

Residents enjoy three meals daily, including a buffet breakfast and supper, as well as a restaurant-style mid-day meal (à la carte). In addition to meals, a variety of modern conveniences are included in the daily room rate: twice monthly housekeeping services, all utilities (except phone and cable), on-campus shuttle transportation, a wide variety of activities and social events, outpatient medical services and emergency assistance available 24 hours a day. If a resident should require additional medical care in the future, the Masonic Village at Elizabethtown offers both personal and nursing care options.
