Our Mission

Meadowood Senior Living provides the highest quality of life for all who experience our community.

Our History

The vision for Meadowood began in 1982, when Bill and Sylvia Strasburg formed a nonprofit board to create a retirement community on the property of Malcolm and Blanche Schweiker, parents of former senator and U.S. Cabinet member Richard Schweiker. Bill and Sylvia now call Meadowood home.

Meadowood was founded on a three-legged stool philosophy, which means that our residents, board and management team all play an important role in making decisions that shape and enrich our community. Since opening our doors in 1988, members of our team have worked together to create one of the region’s finest Life Plan Communities. We have enhanced our beautiful green campus with a new renovation that includes an expanded weight training room, a cool-water lap pool, a central wellness courtyard and expanded Rehabilitation facilities. We’ve also opened Meadowood At Home, a new, all-inclusive plan to help active, independent, seniors age successfully at home, and we’ve broken ground on The Grove, a new expansion of 52 spacious, light-filled, open-plan residences with corner views of our park-like campus. Everything we do is designed to continue to empower our residents with independence, life enrichment and quality choices.

None of these new enhancements would be possible without the support of our volunteers and donors, who have given so generously of their time, talents and funds to support the Meadowood community.

Prospective residents may begin to experience our active, engaging lifestyle by joining the Meadowood Club, and get answers to their questions about life at Meadowood in our Q&A. We also want to do everything we can to help residents of Meadowood and the greater community live their best lives, so we’ve compiled a list of helpful resources.
