This is the promise that the staff at Emeritus at Latrobe - and throughout Emeritus Senior Living communities - has shared since 1988, when our community first opened its doors. It's a simple promise to be compassionate and kind, understanding and respectful - a promise to become extended family to the seniors entrusted in our care and to our residents who have chosen our retirement community for its active lifestyle.
The Perfect Location
Emeritus at Latrobe sits in the valley, surrounded by the beautiful Laurel Mountains of Pennsylvania, farmlands and wildlife. The Pennsylvania Turnpike is easily accessible, and the quaint town of Ligonier, rich in history and culture, is a short ride on Rt. 30. We are also one mile from downtown Latrobe, and next to St. Vincent College, which is situated on a foothill of the Alleghenies.
Emeritus at Latrobe commands a panoramic view of the countryside. Yearly, the Pittsburgh Steelers spend weeks at training camp on the fields of St. Vincent College. Enjoy a visit to Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece house above the waterfall, 38 miles away. Plan a fun-filled day with family at Idelwild Amusement Park in Ligonier, PA. Don't forget to attend our annual arts and craft festivals, where you will appreciate the exceptional visual arts, traditional crafts, educational activities and live performing artists to enlighten, entertain and enrich the community, while preserving and demonstrating Pennsylvania’s historical and living cultural heritage.
A Wonderful Selection
We pride ourselves in the hospitality and warmth we show to everyone who enters our community. We welcome everyone with a smile, and always want our residents and guests to feel at home. We are often complimented on our wonderful warm hospitality.
Emeritus at Latrobe offers four styles of accommodations, with six one-bedroom senior apartments, one two-bedroom apartment, and 75 private studios which can be occupied privately or semi-privately. The majority of our studios are 386 sq. ft. All our senior apartments have individual climate control and private bathrooms, and beautiful views of the countryside or courtyards.
Our senior living community is on one level, so all residents have easy access to our common areas. Our lovely outdoor courtyards are a wonderful location for our birdwatchers, while others enjoy a visit to our library to choose a perfect novel. You can have it all at Emeritus at Latrobe!
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
We nurture and take pride in the strong relationships with our community health care providers. Communication is the key to our success. The relationships we build with our local providers are always growing as the needs of our residents change.
We attribute our success to the longevity of our staff. Our management team is comprised of multiple supervisors who have more than 10 years of service. The nursing staff has multiple dedicated employees who are working here since our building opened more than 22 years ago. We are extremely selective when hiring new team members. Our process ensures that our new staff member’s skills, knowledge and experience match those of our current caregivers who have, over many years, provided exceptional care to our residents.
