LIFE Program Opens New Small Home in Butler County

Published: Thursday, July 13, 2017

The small homes concept in the LIFE Programs is increasing in size and popularity. Marla Frailey, director of LIFE Butler County said, “The philosophy of the LIFE Programs is for participants to be able to age in place in their home and community, and these small homes are a way for us to achieve this goal.”

The small homes are fully furnished and meals are prepared and provided. The residents do pay rent, but all expenses are included. Residents benefit from the nursing staff support available through the LIFE Butler County.

Toni Hively, executive director of the LIFE Programs, is very excited about adding more small homes. “These homes give the residents an opportunity to be part of a community, which meets not only their physical needs, but also their social needs,” she said.

Lutheran SeniorLife also has two small homes in Aliquippa, which are serviced by LIFE Beaver County, and three in New Castle, serviced by LIFE Lawrence County.
