Adding to its list of achievements, Rockhill Mennonite Community, a continuing care retirement community, recently received the highest rating from the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (formerly the Department of Public Welfare) during its annual visit to Rockhill’s Personal Care Center. Of 1,229 facilities surveyed by the department each year, 10 percent receive a perfect score. Rockhill Mennonite Community is part of this elite group, receiving a deficiency-free rating for two consecutive years.
“Rockhill Mennonite Community’s staff consistently provides high-quality compassionate care to all of our residents,” said Catherine Fox, vice president of Health Services. “Receiving a deficiency-free survey from the Department of Human Services is a significant achievement for our Personal Care team. I commend them for all they do, every day,” she added.
Director Lili Meyers and Assistant Director Jamie Dierolf lead a Personal Care team of 38 staff that serve 57 residents. Both have worked at Rockhill Mennonite Community for over 25 years.
“This is the work that God has given me,” says Meyers. “We love the residents. Their happiness is our joy. We honor God by providing the highest quality of care for mind, body, and spirit. I am so proud of our team and this accomplishment!”
CEO Karen Lehman believes a perfect score on this state inspection demonstrates the high level of care and compassion that sets Rockhill Mennonite Community apart. “We are all about the residents. Providing care, dignity, and enrichment to each person is what drives our work every day.”
