Welcome to Bethlen Communities

We are dedicated to nurturing the spiritual, emotional, social, intellectual and physical needs of every person
every day.

Operating as a faith-based, non-profit continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in historic Ligonier, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. Accredited by Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, or CARF, our comprehensive services are designed to offer a person-centered lifestyle for each resident while maintaining a high standard for quality of care.


An independent and active lifestyle is encouraged throughout Bethlen Communities. We strive to help seniors within and beyond our community to increase active life expectancy, a longer life free of disability. When limitations occur, the skilled and professional staff at Bethlen are there to assist with medical, therapeutic, and spiritual care. 

The hallmark of Bethlen Communities has been from our early beginnings in 1921 and continues to be the exceptional quality of care offered by service minded individuals. From independent retirement living at the cottages within the Bethlen Community to skilled personal care at the Bethlen Home, a continuum of care is available as necessary to meet both individualized medical requirements and personal requests.

Regardless of physical or mental limitations, Bethlen’s goal is to help each person served maintain the “Spirit for Living".
