Guardian currently offers Independent Living facilities at two of its locations: Brookline Manor (Mifflintown, PA) and Epworth Manor (Tyrone, PA). Our Independent Living facilities offer seniors their own, home-like living quarters in a lively community setting. Our guests are afforded the opportunity to remain independent, while still benefiting from nearby assistance if it’s ever needed. Our Independent Living communities are designed to be a place where you can maintain control over your life, while enjoying all of the comforts of home.

The Crossings (Independent Living) at Brookline Manor offer a true independent presence, as the cottages are not attached but are single dwelling, spacious, “homelike” residences. They are completely maintenance-free, as we have services to provide lawn maintenance, landscaping, and snow removal. Amenities of water, sewer, and trash removal are included. We schedule activities and outings weekly. Each cottage is equipped with a 24-hour Emergency Nurse Response System.

Epworth Manor offers one and two bedroom independent living apartments, which include water, sewer, washer/dryer unit, a private kitchenette, a private bathroom, and electric. Access to gym, spas, the billiard room, chapel, and the library is also included. These spacious apartments are just right for the active senior who wants to maintain a comfortable lifestyle. Our apartments offer an exceptional value with convenient location and an attractive setting, as well as access to Epworth Manor.

il Villaggio Luxury Accomodations(formerly Golden Pond Apartments) has undergon a multi-million dollar renovation.  Just like the name, luxury is in every aspect of our facility.  With our expansive Social Room , beautiful courtyards, acres of greenery and peaceful pond, Il Villaggio will provide an amazing maintenance-free living experience to people over the age of 55.  Il Villaggio is designed with the Active Retiree in mind.
