Carefree Living in a Country Setting at Elmcroft of State College

Our recently updated, ranch-style senior living home has been part of the vibrant State College community since 1998. Residents enjoy relaxing in rocking chairs, admiring the community’s gorgeous views; participating in activities and outings matched to their interests; and socializing with fellow residents and our friendly staff. All maintenance and housekeeping is included, so days are spent enjoying life, not doing chores.


We take our residents’ preferences into consideration in every way. Our community is pet friendly, so dogs and cats are welcome. Private or shared room options are available. Menus feature multiple choices of chef-prepared meals served restaurant-style in our dining room or as room service. Fun activities are planned according to the interests of our residents. And when residents want some peaceful quiet, our gardens, courtyard and fireplace lounge are perfect places to relax.


What really underscores carefree living at Elmcroft of State College is our capability to meet the needs of our residents, even as those needs change. Our staff are specially trained in the full range of personal care skills. Our dedicated memory care neighborhood offers the same personal care support, with the added focus on the special needs of adults with senior dementia. That means our residents can enjoy as much independence as safely as possible, as long as possible.


Respectful, Compassionate Care

One of the many things our residents compliment us on is our staff. Our management and care staff have 162 years of combined experience in senior living care. And, our 24-hour resident care staff, culinary staff, housekeeping and activities coordinators are completely devoted to making our residents happy and at home.


When our residents need a little extra help throughout the day and night, our personal care staff are specially trained to provide the considerate and compassionate service that helps them thrive. We provide help with day-to-day tasks like incontinence and medication management as well as dressing, bathing and dining. And we’re there with support for safe engagement in fun activities like arts and crafts, cooking classes, field trips, gardening club, movie nights and parties.


Convenient, Family-Friendly Location

Elmcroft of State College is a Happy Valley senior living community, close to a bustling college town. Visitors appreciate our convenient location near a variety of shops, restaurants and entertainment, including:

  • Walmart, Dollar Tree, Target and Nittany Mall
  • Dairy Queen, Doan’s Bones Barbecue, Olive Garden, Applebee’s and the Original Waffle Shop
  • Tom Tudek Memorial Park, the Arboretum at Penn State and Spring Creek Park


Health and Wellness

Helping our residents stay healthy is part of our mission. We coordinate with their local physicians and other healthcare providers and provide transportation to and from needed appointments.  We coordinate with physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists to continue residents’ care right on site, even in the comfort of their own apartments. And, our in-house physician is available, as needed, per family request.
