Community Life Expands with Two New Locations and Reveals Updated Logo

Community LIFE, a Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly will be opening two new Day Health Centers in Lower Burrell and McKeesport early summer 2017. These openings will enable Community LIFE to serve roughly 300 more individuals in Allegheny and Westmoreland Counties. Community LIFE is also expanding services into more areas of the Mon Valley community, including Charleroi, Donora, Monessen, and Monongahela.

Community LIFE has been serving area seniors for 17 years, with centers currently in Tarentum, East End, Homestead, and McKeesport. Day Health Centers provide a place for older adults in the community to receive all the care they need in one location. Centers offer access to primary medical care, nursing, social services, therapies, transportation, and more.

Community LifeAlong with center openings, Community LIFE is introducing an updated logo, designed by Pittsburgh advertising agency, Elisco Advertising. The new logo highlights the organization name, as well as the LIFE acronym, which in Pennsylvania means "Living Independence for the Elderly."

"Our name - "Community" and "LIFE" - reflects that we are all about helping individuals maintain their community life. The modern look to the name shows that we are the still the cutting edge of alternatives to moving into congregate facilities," says Richard DiTommaso, Executive Director of Community LIFE.

With changing and complex healthcare options, older adults should be aware that Community LIFE is available for enrollment at any time throughout the year. "Program of All Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE®) is the most successful model in terms of preventing nursing home placement. We go further than any other community option in integrating medical services with the long term living supports that people need to age in place, and LIFE providers are the only programs in Pennsylvania right now financed to cover all things Medicare and Medicaid, so that participants don't have to worry about who covers what, co-pays, deductibles, or confusing bills," says DiTommaso. For more information, call 1-866-419-1693 TTY: 711, or email info@commlife.org.

Community LIFE is a program of all-inclusive care for the elderly, committed to enabling older adults to remain at home while preserving their dignity, independence and quality of life. Visit www.commlife.org to learn more.
