Retirement Living Couple Enjoying Highpointe Worry-Free Lifestyle

Dougherty highpointe 1

Did you know Concordia has multiple senior care locations that offer retirement living? At any given time, we are serving around 1,000 seniors in western Pennsylvania, eastern Ohio and Tampa, Florida in that one service line alone! We hear a lot of great things from our retirement community residents and their families about our services, and we wanted to take the opportunity to share one of their stories with you.

Tom and Joan Dougherty moved into Highpointe at Rebecca, Concordia’s newest retirement community, last November. After living in their home on nearby Cramlington Drive in Gibsonia for 41 years and wanting to get away from the potential hazards that came with it, the Doughertys knew it was time to make the transition to Highpointe.

“There are good sized apartments, no steps  and a lovely set of staff members and residents,” Tom said. “Moving here was painless and easy.”

Tom grew up in the Morningside neighborhood of Pittsburgh, one of five children. He got a job at the old Commonwealth Bank in downtown Pittsburgh and worked there for 40 years. He has two children: Joe and Jody.

Joan grew up in Crescent Township and worked for Union National Bank for 20 years. She also has two kids of her own, Joseph and Joan. Together, Tom and Joan stay very busy spending a lot of time with their five grandchildren, supporting them in sporting events, school events and other activities they are involved in.

At Highpointe, the couple enjoys attending monthly bingo, church services and musical performances held on campus.

“We love going to the events that take place here,” Joan added. “Some of my all-time favorite performances have been right here at my home!”

Most importantly, Joan is very grateful for all the assistance and care that she has received from the Concordia staff after a serious surgery.

“After my spinal surgery, I had to wear a neck collar for three months, and I was able to have all of my physical therapy and medication available in the comfort of my apartment,” Joan said. “That was a special blessing for me.”

The Doughertys could not be any happier that they chose to make their retirement home at Concordia.

“We originally thought about getting a patio home,” Tom said. “But at 81 and 83 years old, coming to Highpointe was the best decision for us and every expectation we had has been met.”


Looking at the pricing for any retirement living community can be overwhelming at first, but many current Highpointe at Rebecca residents were surprised to discover that they could live at Highpointe for the same or less than what they were paying in their current homes or apartments – but with all the support services and amenities of our beautiful community. For the month of October 2018 only, Highpointe will be offering One-Year Anniversary Discounts – an opportunity you don’t want to miss.

6 Percent Discount
For those who commit to an apartment in the month of October, we are offering a 6% discount on the entrance fee, monthly fee and second person fee.

Veteran’s Discount
All eligible veterans will receive a 3% discount on their entrance fee. This discount will be added on top of the 6% discount. Only one veteran’s discount can be applied per couple. This also applies to spouses of deceased veterans.

Rebecca Residence Services Discount
For a limited time, those who commit to an apartment will receive a 10% discount on future health care services at Concordia at Rebecca Residence, which offers short-term rehabilitation, personal care and long-term nursing care. The 10% discount will be applied to your Daily Rate and Level of Care fee.

These advantageous One-Year Anniversary Discounts can save you thousands now and in the future. For example, if you choose a standard two bedroom apartment, the 6% discount alone can save you between $16,000 and $24,000 over 10 years. Want to learn more?
