Personal Care Facilities Provide Quality Care

As we age, our needs can vary greatly from person to person. For those seniors who benefit from some form of supervision, but don’t necessarily require the round-the-clock care of a skilled nursing facility, personal care at Penn Highlands is the ideal home away from home.

How is our Personal Care Facility Different from Others?

Unlike other personal care facilities, there are no “visiting hours” at Penn Highlands because our residents and guests are free to come and go at their leisure. We are a senior living center, but our team does everything we can to ensure residents retain their independence and lead the lives they’re accustomed to. But as a personal care facility, our staff is always willing and able to help residents with bathing, dressing, medications and other activities of daily living.

If you’re researching a senior living facility for yourself or a loved one, we hope you’ll consider Penn Highlands Healthcare.
