We are conveniently located at West Gore and Old French Road just 1.5 miles north of Interstate 90 in Erie, Pennsylvania. Our community is close to the VA Hospital, St. Vincent Hospital, Erie Zoo, Peach Street, restaurants, the shopping mall, and the casino.

Our courtyard is private and located in the back of the building with wooded views. We have multiple seating areas, lovely landscaping, and shaded areas.

    Inside, our community has recently been fully renovated. Spa-like colors and décor make our personal care community peaceful and comfortable. If you haven’t been by to see our updates, call us today for a visit!

    Life Enrichment Programming

    Independence Court’s Life Enrichment program boasts many activities and local outings that give our residents a purpose every day. We don’t just do Bingo. We make sure to take care of our residents’ physical, mental, and spiritual health. For example, from mid-April through October, residents visit an arthritic swim program in a heated pool. From September through April, a professional musician offers music therapy. Chair yoga is offered twice per month. And, to help our local community, residents bake and provide cupcakes for the neighborhood art house.

    Looking for more? Residents with a competitive nature compete every month with other communities in a trivia contest held at various locations around Erie. Four times a week, you can find residents out and about at ball games, picnics, concerts, museums, shopping, boat trips, and more!

    Memory Care Neighborhood

    Along the Journey is Priority Life Care’s memory care programming. The Along the Journey program was created for our seniors with memory impairments and to help develop strong relationships between families and caregivers. A successful transition involves supporting the resident in their new environment and being a resource for the family.

    Goals of Along the Journey:

    • Create a safe and comfortable environment for residents
    • Provide consistent, well-trained caregivers specific to dementia care
    • Provide care based on residents’ abilities and needs, with respect to the individuals culture and preferences
    • Achieve the highest quality of life possible for residents through cueing and assistance
    • Be a resource and provide support to families, staff, and other residents

    At Independence Court of Erie, we use activities to help reduce residents’ agitation, improve their moods, and encourage social interaction. Popular activities include morning coffee (hydration) and news, listening to music, spiritual programs, ice cream socials, reminiscing, trivia, and puzzles. One-on-one sensory activities may also be used to help residents relax and have a good night’s rest.

    Short-Term Respite Care

    Residents in short-term respite care receive all of the amenities and care in our assisted living or memory care options, but for a shorter, predetermined length of stay. Respite care is for loved ones who may need a little help after a hospital or rehab stay, or when caregivers plan a family vacation or just need some time to relax and recharge. We are here for you. Call and ask us about our respite care package.
