Retirement center opens local office
STRASBURG -- Homewood Retirement Centers is open for business in the Shenandoah Valley.
Homewood, a Hagerstown, Md.-based nonprofit affiliated with United Church of Christ, has opened a marketing office for its newest planned community, to be located on 60 acres on the north edge of Strasburg along Cedar Creek.
Homewood will break ground on the project this spring, with independent-living cottages available as early as the fall. Plans call for a three-phase project, with the first phase to include 38 cottages. The second phase will add a full-service community center, 60 independent-living apartments, 40 assisted-living units and a small health care center. The final phase will add 80 cottages on the lower section of the property along Cedar Creek.
Shenandoah County native Jan Bane has been named executive director of Homewood at the Shenandoah Valley. She served the company's former Woodstock community, the Susan B. Miller Nursing Home, for four years in social services and most recently as marketing director for another area retirement community.
In a statement, Bane said she is excited to be back with Homewood and to be able to offer local residents "moderately-priced units rich in service and tradition."
Reservations for cottages are currently being accepted. Call 465-5500 or (866) 781-7333, or visit Homewood's local marketing office at 33859 Old Valley Pike in Strasburg.
