The Easton Home has been an integral part of the Presbyterian Senior Living family of communities, providing personal care and memory support services to residents for almost 30 years. Founded in 1890, the Easton Home originally provided housing and supportive services for women of limited means. As the demand for services have changed over the years, Presbyterian Senior Living has adapted to meet the needs of consumers.
Most recently, people are staying in their homes longer and desire a community and residences where they can live in one home and adapt that home to meet their changing needs. As a result, there is less demand for Personal Care residential living. The Easton Home has witnessed this shift in consumer preference over the last several years and despite increased efforts to market these services in the Lehigh Valley, consumer interest for this product in our region has waned. As an organization we have been strategically considering how to approach this decrease in demand in order to take a more phased approach. With the recent pandemic, however, the demand has shifted much more quickly and a more immediate response is necessary.
As a result, we have made the difficult decision to close the Easton Home. Residents will have the option to move to another PSL personal care community with availability and programming that meets the need of the individual. We anticipate the relocations to be completed no later than November 15th.
