When it comes to living your best life, a furry friend can make all the difference.
That’s why, at Moravian Manor, we consider ourselves a pet-friendly Life Plan community with heart. Our philosophy is simple: we believe that pets help us “live in the moment” and enrich our lives both physically and emotionally.
No one should have to give that up just because they’re entering
Moravian Manor not only offers a welcoming environment for owners
of cats, dogs, fish, and birds, we remain committed to making sure residential
pet ownership is part of our future. Our expansion plans include the
construction of a dog park and other pet friendly amenities.
Currently, we have an interconnecting sidewalk
system that keeps residents and their pets secure within our community. And as
a community within a community, our residents are free to take their pets for a
casual stroll into the peaceful and bucolic borough of nearby Lititz whenever
the spirit moves them.
Pets are Part of Our Identity
Moravian Manor also has partnerships with several therapy
groups, including KPETS, whose volunteers
bring animals into our community every month. And when it comes to visits,
family and friends are welcome to bring their pets into all of our areas of our
skilled care, personal care, and assisted living facilities.
While we make the health of our residents a top priority, we
understand that the health of their pets is among their top priorities. The
good news is that Moravian Manor is surrounded by several, well-respected
veterinary practices that are located within a 5-mile radius of our community.
Pets are ingrained in every aspect of life here at Moravian Manor. Not only does our pet policy allow for them, future residents who are finalizing their wish lists for their new homes can make upgrades that include pet-friendly finishes, as well.
Because we’re a residential community and a health
care facility, there are, of course, some rules, restrictions, and safety
guidelines we expect our residents and visitors to follow.
For example, we have a pet information and emergency
agreement that identifies who will take responsibility in the event an owner
becomes absent or has an emergency. We also need all shot records and
inoculation documentation to be on record with our facility. Likewise, a non-refundable,
one-time deposit of $250 is required for pet owners.
In the cottages, carriage homes, or townhomes there are no weight limits, but animals must be 50 pounds or less to reside in an apartment, and dogs are restricted to first-floor apartments only.
One dog per home is permitted, or two cats, or a combo of
one dog and one cat. Our insurance company also requires us to restrict certain
dog breeds that can sometimes be perceived as aggressive. Sorry!
