Liberty Lutheran is Transforming Mary J. Drexel
For many years the historic campus and mansion has served the Personal Care and Skilled Nursing needs of residents.
In 2008, Mary J. Drexel joined the Liberty Lutheran Family of Services and began planning for the future.
In the spring of 2012, the demolition of the nursing home and cottage was completed to accommodate the construction of a state-of-the art Assisted Living Community.
The additions to Mary J. Drexel include two story East and West wings, which will be physically attached to the existing three story mansion. Each of these four floors will be a unique household community, accommodating a total of 80 residents.
Transforming the traditional medical model of long hallways to these households nurtures the human spirit and meets the residents’ medical needs, while offering daily choices that reflect their unique preferences and personalities. One of the four households will be designed for residents who need memory support.
A Culture Change for the Liberty Lutheran Senior Communities
What is Culture Change?
“Culture Change” transforms the traditional hospital model to one that nurtures the residents’ individual preferences and needs. Culture Change is a journey, always moving to meet the needs of our residents by highlighting choice, dignity, self-direction, relationship and emphasizing possibilities, not limitations.
