In 2010, ACTS completed an affiliation with Peninsula United
Methodist Homes (PUMH) and Heron Point of Chestertown, thereby
assuming management and operation of four United Methodist
Christian retirement communities in Delaware and Maryland.
PUMH was founded in 1954 by Rev. George H. Pigueron, Jr., a
Methodist minister who recognized the need to provide secure
residential United Methodist retirement communities for the older
adults in his congregation. His vision blossomed and in the years
that followed, PUMH emerged as a pioneer in providing outstanding
retirement living and senior housing, setting the standard for an
industry that has since grown tremendously.
Country House in Greenville was established as
the first continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in Delaware,
built in 1960.
Manor House opened in 1966 in Seaford. It is
also home to the first Alzheimer's wing in Southern Delaware and
the first fully integrated on-site wellness center to serve
both United Methodist retirement residents and the larger
Cokesbury Village, a Christian Methodist Retirement Community
Village in Hockessin welcomed its first residents in
1978 to a contemporary campus. The first Alzheimer's care unit in
Delaware was opened here in 1985.
Point in Chestertown, Maryland was built in 1991. It
was managed by PUMH, Inc. and owned by PUMH of Maryland, Inc. Its
location on the shores of the Chester River and, adjacent to
historic Chestertown, made it PUMH's first ideal destination for a
premier retirement community.
