“Serving seniors is a 24/7 job. Our team embraces this responsibility,” said Larry Rouvelas, Chief Executive Officer of IntegraCare, which took over management of The Residence at Presque Isle Bay on March 25, 2022. “It is exciting to welcome this new community to the IntegraCare family.” 

Based north of Pittsburgh, IntegraCare has operated senior communities for more than two decades, establishing a reputation as a great place to work and a great place to live. The Residence at Presque Isle Bay joins 15 other IntegraCare communities in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia.

With a panoramic view of Lake Erie, The Residence at Presque Isle Bay evokes the spirit of the grand hotels of decades past while providing residents modern amenities and individualized personal care and memory care.

“Our team at IntegraCare makes us special, and for The Residence at Presque Isle Bay, our location makes us amazing,” Rouvelas said. “This community is located at the center of one of the most amazing natural resources in the Eastern United States.

“We also are located near the region’s major hospitals and rehabilitation centers,” added Rouvelas of the senior community located at 1012 West Bayfront Parkway in Erie.

Capital improvements of more than $900,000 will be invested to upgrade the community.

The Residence at Presque Isle Bay includes amenities such as:

  • Beautifully appointed dining room featuring individualized menu choices that adhere to doctor-recommended diets
  • Spacious activity lounge
  • Full-service beauty salon

IntegraCare brings to Erie the philosophy that a great place to work makes a great place to live.
