Keith Bryan, CEO at Fahrney-Keedy Home, was the guest speaker at the Nov. 27 meeting of the Antietam Exchange Club in Hagerstown.

Bryan talked about the Boonsboro area facility, a faith-based continuing care retirement home, with residential retirement cottages, assisted living facilities and a nursing home. The facility is situated on a 90-acre parcel, with 40 acres in use. The home is making some upgrades and building additional cottages. It has 217 residents, more than 200 employees and many volunteers.

  • Go green
  • Consider where you want to retire
  • Give thought to the importance of being close by (family, friends, medical providers)
