Providing the Altoona, PA, Area with Quality Care Since 1903
Since our founding in 1903, The Village at Morrisons Cove has expanded to serve 270 residents through our nursing home, independent living, and personal care facilities. Many of our residents come to live on our campus from across the Altoona area. We strive to provide our residents with compassionate, high-quality care, allowing them to age gracefully and with the care they need. Our campus is a continuing care retirement community, so our residents can remain on our campus in Martinsburg from independent living, move into our personal care facilities, and then transition into our nursing home, if needed.
