Who We Are
Premier retirement living without pretense.
The Highlands at Wyomissing is situated on 113 acres of gently rolling land with tree-lined roads and walkways located next to the beautiful Wyomissing Park. Our community draws a diverse group of residents from the surrounding counties and beyond. We remain the only senior community in Berks County to provide a life care contract with unlimited healthcare at essentially no increase in the Monthly Service Fee.
Our history started in April of 1989 when The Highlands opened its first apartment residences. The Highlands is a nonprofit entity of Reading Health System. Reading Health System is a not-for-profit healthcare organization providing comprehensive acute care, post-acute rehabilitation, behavioral, and occupational health services to those of Berks and adjoining counties.
Today, The Highlands offers 240 residential apartments of various sizes, 40 spacious two- and three-bedroom villas and homes and the Farmstead. Our residents enjoy amenities such as a fully equipped Fitness Center, a heated indoor salt-water swimming pool, computer center, 5,000-book library, art studio, billiards room, putting green and garden plots. Services include three diverse dining venues, daily social events, bi-weekly housekeeping and linens, maintenance, full-service on-site bank, transportation, and educational enrichment opportunities. Residents also enjoy the added security of lifecare with our 66 Personal Care apartments and an 80-bed Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation center.
Members of our Future Resident Club can take advantage of many programs and amenities at The Highlands years before they actually move in. A fully refundable deposit assures senior adults a place on the Future Resident Club until they’re ready — in a month, a year, or ten years — to move to The Highlands.
Although most residents of our senior living community enter The Highlands through a life care agreement in residential living, those requiring a higher level of care may directly move to a Personal Care apartment or to Skilled Nursing, where there is no Entrance Fee. Respite accommodations are available for senior adults when their caregivers are temporarily unavailable.
