Your Support Makes a Difference
Diakon Senior Living – Hagerstown is proud to continue Diakon’s tradition of providing exceptional care and service. In order to help us fulfill our mission, we rely on the compassion and support of philanthropic donors.
We are owned and operated by Diakon Lutheran Social Ministries, a not-for-profit organization committed offering a continuum of care and service to active seniors, as well as to providing a wide range of services to children, youths and families including adoption, foster care and family counseling. With “Many Hands Acting as One Heart,” Diakon cares for older adults in its communities through acts of service.
As part of Diakon Lutheran Social Ministries, we are proud to offer charitable care to residents who have exhausted their financial resources through circumstances beyond their control or whose cost of care exceeds reimbursement. This benevolent care promise allows residents to receive continued housing, care and support services for the rest of their lives within our community.
In 2016, Diakon Senior Living – Hagerstown provided more than $2.5 million in uncompensated care as part of our investment in service to older adults. That amount included the actual cost to provide nursing care beyond what is reimbursed by state and federal programs and the provision of assisted-living services for those who have exhausted their financial resources.
