About Us


Convenient, affordable senior living

Lutherwood staff members believe that everyone is entitled to enjoy the conveniences of retirement living, regardless of income. Offering numerous amenities in our rent-subsidized, equal opportunity housing apartments, Lutherwood boasts a scenic wooded setting with a breathtaking view of Lake Scranton—all at a price you can afford.

A tranquil, scenic site

Situated on the outskirts of Scranton, Pa., Lutherwood is located in a peaceful setting, with urban amenities just minutes away. Downtown Scranton boasts various cultural, educational, and recreational offerings including the Scranton Cultural Center, the Mellow Center, the Northeast Philharmonic, Nay Aug Park, Steamtown Mall, Steamtown USA National Park, Lackawanna Stadium, Marywood University, Lackawanna Community College, and the University of Scranton. Additional popular destinations—the Viewmont Mall and Montage Mountain—are also nearby.

Lutherwood’s prime location allows residents to reap the benefits of our peaceful, scenic campus. Lake Scranton provides not only a breathtaking backdrop for the community, but also the setting for walking trails. The wooded landscape is ideal for shaded summer picnics and serves as a perfect place to gather with friends to play shuffleboard or horseshoes.

Lutherwood is readily accessible from a number of major highways including Interstate-81, Rt. 307, and the Northeast Extension of the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Health care is readily available, with nearby facilities including the Community Medical Center, Moses Taylor Hospital, and Mercy Hospital.

Embrace your independence!

If you are 62 years of age or older or physically handicapped and 18 years of age or older, our fair-market housing facility offers equal opportunities for all applicants who meet current income limits.

Lutherwood provides a safe and secure environment, with regularly scheduled trips to shopping destinations, via our handicapped-accessible minibus. Hourly public bus transportation also is available to residents. Residents may choose to participate in a variety of social activities planned by the Lutherwood Residents Association.
