About Us

A History of Service

In the early 1960s, a group of dedicated community members embarked on a mission to create a rest home – as it was called then – that celebrated the service philosophy and values of their denomination, the Church of the Brethren. Their goal was to create a community that would not only care for but would enhance the health and vitality of area seniors. After over a decade of tireless dedication to their cause, in 1971, Peter Becker Community was born.

Since then, the community has grown from a small 37-bed “rest home” to a thriving Continuing Care Retirement community on a beautiful 100-acre campus. It’s a community that provides seniors with a variety of engaging lifestyle options that can address nearly every need. It’s a community that combines health and wellness with fun, friendship and high-quality care. It’s a community that provides our area seniors and their families with real peace of mind.

Peter Becker Community is a not-for-profit community.

Our Mission

Enriching the Lives of Seniors and Our Community through Compassion, Excellence, Integrity and Stewardship.

Our Vision

To cultivate a COMMUNITY where residents and employees are embraced by the warmth and support of all. We are committed to promoting the well-being and vitality of the residents we serve, with the values instilled in us through the Church of the Brethren, recognizing a culture of service love and integrity. We honor our history by maintaining the passion that sets us apart and defines who we are.

Our Culture

At Peter Becker Community, the close relationships between our residents and team members enhance daily life. This is the hallmark of our lifestyle – and our culture.

In a place where the team works each day to care for our spaces and serve our residents, human interaction happens naturally. We take this interaction very seriously. Ask a resident and you’ll hear stories of extraordinary closeness and kindness. Ask a team member and you’ll be reminded of the personal fulfillment found in respectfully serving our residents’ needs and how having an open mind encourages everyone to grow. This genuine, person-centered philosophy is brought to life each day at Peter Becker Community.

But it truly is the people at Peter Becker Community – and their passion – that sets us apart and defines who we are. We are a warm, welcoming community that genuinely cares for and about one another.
