Welcome New Town Planner sponsor: The Egle House Memory Care Assisted Living Facility.
We were first introduced to the folks and facilities of the Egle House during a recent tour and our reaction can be summed up as Wow! Located in Lonaconing, the newly constructed Egle House was developed by the same caring professionals that have owned and operated Egle Nursing & Rehab Center for the past 30 years. Sitting adjacent to the nursing facility but in a separate building; The Egle House offers 16 private suites for its residents. Each suite provides a private bathroom with individual showers.
The Egle House seeks to fill a much-needed void in memory care services to the residents of the tri state area. Their focus is on providing the highest quality memory care services to those members of our community who have memory loss or cognitive decline.
