Broadmead Announces Openings for Independent Living Residents

Broadmead is a Quaker continuing care retirement community founded by Friends of Baltimore Monthly Meeting, Stony Run and located in Cockeysville, Maryland. They have announced that they have some available studios in Independent Living that they would like to make Friends aware of, as Broadmead also has a healthy fund that could be used to financially assist age and medically appropriate Quakers with obtaining residency at Broadmead. Their residency would include the on-site higher levels of care if needed as they age. This is an excellent opportunity. For more information, contact Alycia Edwards.
