Personal Care Homes That Are Perfect For Your Loved Ones

As you enjoy your retirement years, your health or physical disabilities sometimes make it more difficult for you to live without assistance. Personal care homes are an excellent option for you if this is the case! They offer the independence you're used to with the help you need, and they are a perfect way for you to maintain a sense of community and belonging as you navigate your retirement.

When living on your own is no longer an option, Harvest View at Zerbe Retirement Community could be the perfect solution. Located on our beautiful, 60-acre campus in northeast Lancaster county, Harvest View provides personal care for residents who require supervision or general assistance with daily living in a safe and nurturing environment.

Our compassionate caregivers are experienced in all areas of senior health care and make sure residents are treated as individuals with the dignity and respect they deserve.

Residents also enjoy a close family community and the opportunity to experience a full and active life. Our community is welcoming and fun-filled for maximum enjoyment all the time, whether that's through socializing all day or slowing down and getting through that stack of books you've been meaning to read. There's always something to do, including making new friends and getting to know each other during our planned social activities. Aside from our social events, we also offer therapeutic activities to enjoy. We take pride in our commitment to achieving optimum health and well-being for our residents - from their physical and social needs to their spiritual needs.

What Do Our Personal Care Homes Offer?

When you call our Harvest View personal care community your home, you opt for some of the best personal care available in Lancaster county.

That, coupled with some genuinely wonderful amenities, makes for an experience of being an individual within a community that you know cares about you and your well-being.

Private Suites

Harvest View is a personal care community that encourages you to socialize and enjoy activities within the community. However, having your own space is essential even in a community-based setting.

Our personal care residents live in their own private suite with a kitchenette and bath. Each suite contains a lockable door for maximum privacy, and we encourage our residents to bring their own furnishings to create a personal, home-like environment. Whether you enjoy reading and want to add a small bookshelf to your room or have dozens of photos to hang up, we can't wait to learn more about you and get to know what you love!

And because we are a personal care facility, all our suites are equipped with emergency call bells for convenient and quick staff response in case you need them.

Our personal care center also includes common areas for all residents, including:

  • Library
  • Private Dining Room
  • Multi-Purpose Room
  • Laundry
  • Beauty / Barber Shop

You are welcome to utilize these spaces whenever you'd like!


If you tour personal care homes, you may discover that their amenities vary greatly. At Harvest View, we always want you to feel comfortable and welcome, so we designed our community to be as homey as possible, with amenities you would have access to if you lived on your own.

Dine like never before, with daily meals prepared in-house. Our chef is committed to quality and freshness and incorporates the bounty of local agriculture, combined with traditional Pennsylvania Dutch cooking, to produce incredible meals you will savor.

Enjoy a clean space and fresh bedding as we provide weekly housekeeping and linen service. Never worry about paying the electric bill on time, as management has included and addressed basic utilities.

Some of our other services include assistance with:

  • Medications

Is Harvest View the Right Choice For Me or My Loved One?

Choosing between personal care homes, assisted living facilities, or nursing homes can be challenging. You want to live the best life you can as you enjoy retirement. But how can you ensure you are getting the care you need? Health issues can be harder to deal with as you get older. What about your independence? Having that freedom to be yourself is crucial. So what's the right choice?

The answer depends on you. If you feel personal care homes meet your needs best right now, consider Harvest View. At Harvest View, we encourage you to maintain your individuality and help you through those moments of difficulty where you need a little more assistance. Something like remembering to take medication at the same time each day can be difficult, but we are here to ease that burden for you. Let us take care of you while you enjoy socializing, participating in the community, and carving out time for yourself and your own hobbies every day. We can't wait for you to join our personal care community!

Continuing Care: Skilled Nursing Center

Our continuing care model means we offer several levels of care for you, depending on your needs during your stay with us. We have independent living options for those requiring little or no help throughout their daily activities. Harvest View provides four levels of care should your needs change during your stay in our personal care homes. However, sometimes your needs exceed what we can provide in our personal care homes, and that's when you might consider our skilled nursing facility.

Residents can receive additional long-term care in our Zerbe Sisters Nursing facility. For those that need complete, skilled nursing care, our nursing facility is staffed with licensed and certified medical professionals like RNs, LPNs, and CNAs, so we can give our residents the around-the-clock care they deserve and may need.

We also offer rehabilitation services with occupational, speech, and physical therapists so you can enjoy the highest quality of life possible during your time with us!
