Country House

The rolling hills outside Wilmington and classic architecture are just a few of the features residents enjoy at Country House, which includes the original Winterthur estate and is an easy drive to Philadelphia and surrounding metro areas. This senior community provides the financial peace of mind of an Acts’ Type A Life Care Contract to its residents, and it has the highest accreditation available for a Continuing Care Retirement Community.

You’ll find sprawling walking trails that run over streams, through gardens, and next to a gazebo. There are rooms for cards, woodworking, fitness classes, and art projects. Art and music appreciation classes take place regularly, and a fitness room offers all of the latest equipment. An auditorium hosts events, while day and overnight trips ensure residents can enjoy all of the cultural attractions in the region.

The apartments and cottages range from one bedroom to three bedrooms. Most include a patio or a balcony, and the kitchens have solid countertops, beautiful cabinets, and updated appliances. When it’s time to enjoy a chef-prepared meal, there is a formal dining room and a casual dining room, offering plenty of space, light, and seating options.

Housekeeping services are available, and there is a room for overnight guests and a private meeting room. There are wide hallways that connect the various buildings together, and spacious gathering areas make it easy to keep in touch with friends.

It’s always easy to catch a ride to a doctor’s appointment or for a shopping trip, and the staff on hand help set up lifelong learning opportunities and help residents access services such as massage therapy. Lifelong care is available at Oakbridge Terrace Assisted Living and at WillowBrooke Court Skilled Care.
