Whether you've just begun to think about retirement or you've come to a point where you can no longer live on your own, Zerbe Retirement Community offers affordable retirement living and continuing care options to enjoy a truly worry-free retirement.

Nestled in the countryside of northeastern Lancaster County, Zerbe Retirement Community offers easy access to major roads and highways, yet residents enjoy the tranquility of rural living. Zerbe's 60-acre campus supports all levels of retirement living—from independent cottages to complete skilled nursing care. Each resident is welcomed as part of our "extended family," and we strive to enhance all phases of your retirement years.

We founded Zerbe Retirement Community upon strong family values and our commitment to care for and serve our residents with respect and compassion. This tradition started more than 50 years ago with the Zerbe Sisters Nursing Center. Our family-owned business has been serving the senior community since 1958.
