About Acts Retirement Living
The leader in life care for over 50 years
Acts began out of the concern of a suburban Philadelphia pastor and some members of his church who sought a dignified and acceptable retirement setting for the older members of the congregation. From there, Acts opened its first community in 1972, what is now Fort Washington Estates, in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
Today, Acts is one of the largest not-for-profit operators of continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) in the United States.
With a vision founded in faith and guided by a commitment to integrity and Loving-Kindness, Acts has established an unsurpassed reputation for strength and stability in the senior retirement living industry.
Acts - where loving-kindness and Christian ideals are practiced to meet the needs of those we serve.
Acts is committed to providing security and peace of mind to seniors by being a pre-eminent provider of retirement-life services, responsive to individual, social, personal, health and spiritual needs in a Christian atmosphere graced with Loving-Kindness, dignity, sensitivity, honesty and respect, without prejudice or preference.
Culture of Loving-Kindness
The Acts Culture of Loving-Kindness is based on the extension of God’s grace, goodness, mercy, and love without prejudice to others. Acts embraces Loving-Kindness, recognizing the inherent value in others through an attitude of respect and acceptance, without favor. Acts is committed to following God’s directives to care for seniors and, in doing so, glorifying Him through intent, purpose and righteous justice.
Diversity & Inclusion
In keeping with the teachings of our Christian heritage and the Culture of Loving-Kindness, Acts is committed to the belief that every person is equally created in the image of God—a basic human identity— and that all individuals shall be treated with respect and dignity regardless of their religion, race, national origin, color, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, age, or other unique attributes. This commitment to inclusion and diversity goes to the core of our beliefs.
