Our Mission: Rooted in the Judeo-Christian Tradition of hospitrality and service and dedicated to a mission of love and respect for each individual, The Sisters of Saints Cyril and Methodius and the Staff of Maria Joseph Continuing Care Commuity offer a welcoming and secure environment where the loves of senior adults and their families are enhanced with compassionate and professional care.
On March 19, 1962 the Sisters of Saints Cyril and Methodius, in keeping with their
mission to "reach out in compassion to care for the elderly, the young, the poor,
the sick, the lonely, wounded families and immigrant," first welcomed guests to Maria
Joseph Manor in Danville, PA.
After its inception, Maria Joseph Manor became a caring and welcoming home for
all residents with help from Sisters and staff. People began to refer to Maria Joseph Manor as the "Home With the Heart.." To face the challenge of the 1990's and to carry on their mission into the 21st Century, the Sisters recognized the need to expand and develop a continuum of care concept.
The formal dedication of The Meadows, the independent living part of the Maria
Joseph campus, occurred in 1996. Maria Joseph Manor was then converted into a
Personal Care building and Emmanuel Center for Nursing and Rehabilitation was
established. Doors opened November of 2001. The Sisters recognized a need for
specialized, supportive, personal care for individuals living with Dementia. In 2003
Nazareth Memory Center began welcoming residents and then the Sisters
dream of a Continuum of Care for Seniors became a reality.
To this day Maria Joseph Continuing Care Community continues to be a leader that
sets standards in care for the elderly in the Central Pennsylvania Region.
