Timbercrest celebrates 50 years in North Manchester

NORTH MANCHESTER -- For 50 years, Timbercrest Senior Living Community has been serving the North Manchester community, giving older adults a place to call home.


While Timbercrest opened its doors just north of North Manchester in 1968, it was in 1889 when Churches of the Brethren in Indiana began the ministry of caring for older adults and orphans in Mexico.


According to Timbecrest's website, the children's department closed in 1942 and the focus shifted to older adults. In the 1950s, the buildings at the Mexico home could not meet changing regulations and preparations for the North Manchester site began.


“It was really special caring for people who moved over from the Mexico home who really had their lives altered in a major way,” former Timbercrest CEO Dave Lawrenz said. Lawrenz recently retired after 43 years serving at Timbercrest.
