SEATTLE–Leisure Care, one of the most innovative operators of senior living communities in the country, is introducing its first community in Pennsylvania. The Landing of Collegeville has 95 total apartments, including 30 memory care and 65 assisted living units.

“We have a lot of ideas, and the residents are so open-minded,” she says. “It really is our people who set us apart.”
