TO LIVING WELL
Charming, historic Medford, NJ, was founded in 1847 and was selected by National Geographic as one of the nation’s “small town treasures.” Lumberton, founded in 1683 and incorporated in 1860, was originally named for its timber industry and sawmills.
Medford Leas is an accredited Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), spread across over 250 acres and two campuses, providing a uniquely fulfilling living experience to adults age 55 and older. Medford Leas also gives back to the community in many ways, click here to learn more.
QUAKER ROOTS, VALUES & CONNECTIONS
Medford Leas is sponsored by The Estaugh, a Quaker-related not-for-profit corporation founded in 1914 to serve the needs of older adults. Their purpose was to create a special community in which the principle of loving concern would guide their common effort. Medford Leas was born of that early vision and has grown in scope and in stature on The Estaugh’s stable foundation.
The Estaugh is guided by the teachings and beliefs of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers), particularly the basic tenet that there is ‘That of God’ in everyone and the respect for the sanctity of every individual inherent in that belief. The Estaugh is further guided by the following values: community, stewardship, life balance, human resources and excellence
BOARD OF TRUSTEES & LEADERSHIP
The vision of Medford Leas is achieved by a highly respected and engaged board of trustees. The all-volunteer board is comprised of a maximum of 15 members and requires that a majority shall be Quakers and that at least one member shall be a resident of Medford Leas. No individual has any equity or beneficial interest in the community.
The leadership team is comprised of senior living professionals providing residents and staff a welcoming atmosphere of mutual trust and respect.
