Carefree Living in a Homelike Community

Nestled in a quiet residential area, our senior living community has been part of York since 1998. With our caring, socially rich atmosphere and small-town location, Elmcroft of York offers a lifestyle of comfort and convenience. Our compassionate caregivers are dedicated to residents’ happiness, health, well-being and peace of mind, and each resident is treated with dignity and respect. 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 personal care community is pet friendly, so dogs and cats are welcome. Studio, shared and companion apartments are available. Menus feature multiple choices of chef-prepared meals served restaurant-style in our dining room. Fun activities are planned according to the interests of our residents. And whether residents want to socialize or enjoy some peace and quiet, our comfortable indoor and outdoor common areas, courtyard and patio garden are perfect places to relax. 

What really underscores carefree living at Elmcroft of York 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. 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 compassionate, 24-hour resident care staff, as well as our culinary staff, housekeeping staff 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 art classes, gardening, trivia and barbecues.

Health and Wellness

Helping our residents stay healthy is part of our mission. We coordinate with their outside healthcare providers and provide transportation to appointments. We also offer on-site physical, occupational and speech therapy and nebulizer treatments.
