Throughout Liberty Lutheran’s family of services, our staff go above and beyond to uplift the well-being of older adults and their families– providing hope, comfort, and security to many. Our staffs’ heroic efforts help adults in their later years rediscover purpose and fulfillment through empowering opportunities. Their faithful presence alongside our residents through so many life journeys remains strong through both the highs and the lows.
2020 has been an extraordinary year. The coronavirus pandemic and the many stressors it has created are present every day. These stressors highlight the importance of what Liberty Lutheran offers to those who count on our family of services. Every day, Liberty serves as a source of hope.
As Thanksgiving approaches, there’s no better time to reflect on all that we are thankful for as Liberty employees bring graciousness and blessings to the lives of those we serve. Here are thoughts from some of our residents throughout our family of services that demonstrate the lasting impact our organization makes on so many lives.
I am thankful for the loving care and concern I receive daily from the Artman staff as well as the goodies and surprises received during the pandemic.~ Dolores B., resident of Artman
I am thankful for the health and safety of all the residents and keeping the community sanitized and taking extra precautions to keep us safe. My daughters are also very grateful for all the precautions that Artman is taking to keep everyone safe.~ Phyllis M., resident of Artman

I am thankful for the staff at The Manor, from dining to reception to maintenance and housekeeping, for their kindness and patience, especially during these challenging times.~Marie G., resident of The Manor at York Town
The one who should be thankful is not the one who has the most, but the one who needs it the least. It is not what you make, it’s what you keep. I am thankful for my relationship with God; that has carried me through these difficult times.~Dr. Divo M., resident of The Manor at York Town
I am thankful for a long term & short term memory, ears that hear, eyes that can read, hands and legs that work without pain; my new heart valve that works, my pacemaker that works, my diabetes under control, my blood pressure being under control, my retirement money that will take care of me. I am thankful for my three daughters who are the best! I am thankful for being 86 years old, born in 1934, and the joy of being a creative writer of 100 poems and stories, the good fortune to have had a wonderful wife for 58 years since 1957! I am thankful to have had a roof over my head here at Paul’s run.~Arnold E., resident of Paul’s Run
I am thankful for Paul’s Run. I feel right at home here and the Paul’s Run employees have become my second family. I am also thankful for my daughter and four grandchildren, and turning 93-years-old this year!~Elsie L., resident of Paul’s Run
I am thankful the love of family is far stronger and powerful than any COVID virus. And even though the world is in turmoil right now, God is still in control.~ Hazel F., resident of The Village of Penn State
At my age 83, I’m thankful for my health, my family nearby, my new church and my new home at The Village~ Dan M., resident of The Village at Penn State
