The health and well-being of our patients, residents and team members is our number one priority. Despite many of the counties in which we operate beginning to re-open, per the Departments of Health, Concordia is still operating under a no visitation policy, except for patients/residents in end-of-life situations. However, those wishing to see their loved ones can schedule time with them at one of our safe visitation areas. Please call your loved one's facility for more information. For information regarding Concordia’s coronavirus precautions and cases, please click here. We have also began publishing regular video devotions from our Chaplains.

Concordia Calendar Portraits: Franklin Park

March 5, 2013

The theme of the 2013 Concordia Lutheran Ministries calendar is "Faithful Caring Our Way of Life," and each month offers a picture of a resident/patient with one of our dedicated caregivers. We thought it would be fun to tell the stories behind the models, in a series we're calling Concordia Calendar Portraits. Enjoy!

Our February calendar girls are from Concordia of Franklin Park, a 100-bed personal care community located a few minutes from Rt. 79 and Rt. 910.

Kirsten and Betty Kirsten and Betty

Betty Grandy, at age 94, celebrated her first year at Concordia last week. A former first grade teacher in the Deer Lakes School District, Betty has been retired for 30 years. She has five children, 11 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Prior to coming to Concordia at Franklin Park, she lived in the Hickory Hills Apartments in Wexford.

Her caregiver is Kirsten Charlton, a licensed practical nurse who resides in Cranberry Twp. with her husband, Steve, and two daughters, Mykaela and Maddy. She came to Concordia a year ago, after she graduated from Lenape Technical School. Kirsten said she loves her residents and is working toward earning her RN because she wants to make a difference. When she is not at work, this self-proclaimed shy individual enjoys camping.

Concordia of Franklin Park offers the best of both worlds for our Personal Care residents in the north Pittsburgh region. Featuring breathtaking woodland views, a stunning courtyard, wonderfully landscaped grounds and several walking paths, this community allows our residents to truly enjoy their surroundings. There are many intimate sitting areas, a cozy library, an expansive activity room and more.
