Valley Care Association has been a leader in providing comprehensive, high-quality elder care in the Sewickley Valley since its founding in 1978. Formed through an unprecedented partnership of nonprofit organizations and concerned citizens, Valley Care made a commitment to address this vital need. With broad community support, it raised funds and hired experts to develop and operate Valley Care Nursing Home and two Adult Day Care Centers, establishing services that have met changing elder care needs for four decades. In 1999, the nursing home became part of the Masonic Village retirement community. Today, Valley Care continues to support the elderly as a pillar of the community. Authors Janice Jeletic and Alison Conte tell the story of excellence and compassion that mark Sewickley's Valley Care Association.
