Choose the Right Senior Living Community

Is This Community a Good Fit for Me?

If you are relatively independent but concerned about how your needs will change as you get older, Providence Place is a good fit. Unlike an active adult community (CCRC), we have staff available at all times to provide care. While we cannot offer extensive skilled nursing, our licensed nurses are on-site 24 hours a day to provide medical attention for personal care & memory care needs.

Our resource center offers more in-depth information about choosing the right living option for yourself or a loved one.

Contact our Executive Director Howard Holben to learn more.

Our mission at Providence Place is to truly be a community where residents, team members, and families can all be involved in making decisions and creating a fantastic place to live & work. Finding purpose and contributing is a major factor in experiencing fulfilling days.

We were proud to honor some outstanding residents at the Collegeville Inn for all they do in and outside of our community. 👏

Our Pottsville Executive Chef, Jake, collaborated on a special dining event for community life programming — we like to call “Dine In with Chef Jake”. 👨‍🍳

Jake planned an Italian themed night, cooked and presented the meal in our private dining room. The menu consisted of fresh made Caesar salad with scratch made dressing, pasta with red or white sauce with your choice of protein. The protein options were steak, chicken, shrimp, or scallops. Bananas Foster was the dessert. 🍽

The residents enjoyed this event!
