Rev. Cecelia Chiodo, mother and grandmother to the current owners of Hillview Home, was a woman with a big heart who always made sure that anyone who needed a place to stay was welcome to call on her and she would be sure to open the doors of her own personal home to help those in need. It was through this time period of her life where Rev. Chiodo recognized an additional need in our society -- to create a warm and caring facility with an emphasis on personal attention for our senior citizens.
In July 1968, Rev. Cecelia Chiodo and her son, Richard Arena and wife Ann started Hillview Home to provide care for many disadvantaged men and women. In the early 1970's, Richard Arena worked on the Pennsylvania Task Force to institute a licensure for Hillview Home and all personal care homes in the State. Currenty, Rev. Chiodo's granddaughter, Mary-Jo Arena Cronin, serves as administrator for our facility and shares this role along with her parents Richard and Ann Arena.
Our maximum capacity at any given time is limited to 22 residents. Much thought and attention was given to setting the maximum number of residents in our facility so we would be able to provide the utmost attention to each and every one of our residents as we welcome every guest into our home as part of our extended family.
We offer private and shared rooms, two large social areas for activities and dining, a covered outdoor deck offering beautifully landscaped views of a variety of seasonal plants and flowers as well as wildlife during all seasons of the year, and more!
Please be sure to visit us and take a tour of our lovely facility.
