A Family Tradition
The roots of South Mountain Memory Care run deep in the Lehigh Valley. Founder Bill Wall is the current owner of AP Houser and Valley Builders, two esteemed companies with history dating back to 1912. Bill grew up in the family business working alongside his grandfather Sam Landis, Sr. until illness sidelined the patriarch. Bill took the reins and continued to build on the success of the organization as a legacy to his grandfather. It is these community ties and dedication to his grandfather’s memory that have led Bill to build a community where loved ones could have the peace of mind that their elders will receive proper care.
