Providence Place Senior Living

Peaceful Retirement Living Near Hazleton

About our Drums Location:

Just outside of the Pocono Mountain region in the northeastern area of the state is the newly redecorated Providence Place Senior Living of Drums in Luzerne County. You’ll find this picturesque retirement community located on Rt. 309, just off Interstates 80 and 81. The Drums campus is designed to encourage outdoor activity and exercise. A paved walking path winds around the community and offers pleasant views of the Pocono Mountains. Residents can also take in the views from several covered porches and patios and a peaceful gazebo.

The flavor of north Central Pennsylvania is all around us – from activities, to local outings, to food – like homemade haluski, pierogies, pizza, stromboli and desserts – on our dinner table. The dining menu also includes healthier choices including a salad bar, vegetarian entrees, and sugar-free desserts.

With mundane housekeeping chores taken care of and the assistance you need for daily living, life at Providence Place allows you to enjoy spending time with activities and people that are important to you. At Providence Place you can make new friends, invite family over, get involved in an activity and have peace-of-mind and security to relax a little. We enjoy the annual funfest in Hazleton, great local restaurants and visiting the Bloomsburg State Fair every September. One of our favorite outings is to the Mohegan Sun Casino.

We have been taken care of very well, especially my wife who needs much more assistance than me.

I moved here last July, and it is a wonderful place for seniors to come and live. Staff, nursing, and the overall environment are very nice.
