About Us

We’re a Christian retirement community in Lititz, PA offering senior living communities (cottages and apartments), personal care services, and skilled nursing care in our nursing home.

In the early 1900s, Barbara and Henry Firestone opened their home to neighbors who needed assistance and began caring for them. As members of the United Zion Church and owners of a bakery that served the local area, Barbara and Henry’s generosity flowed from their Christian faith and their commitment to the community. Along with the church, they formally incorporated the effort as the United Zion Home for the Homeless in 1905.

Today, United Zion Retirement Community carries out its nonprofit mission with the same Christian commitment that inspired the Firestones more than a century ago. As a life plan community (also called a “continuing care retirement community”), we offer a full range of services that accent the lives of our residents, their families, and the broader community. And our unique staff culture centers around loving and caring for our residents and each other. If you’re looking for a Christian retirement home/community, we’d be honored to meet you!
