Our communities introduce new opportunities for residents to experience joy, make meaningful connections, and remain actively engaged through programs, activities, events, and outings. Our mission is clear: create a home-like environment where residents and their families are embraced with care and comfort in a vibrant community.

Assisted Living at Commonwealth Senior Living

Assisted Living

Assisted living at Commonwealth Senior Living, also known as Personal Care in Pennsylvania, provides the ideal balance of personalized support, delivered with dignity, respect, and independence. We understand that while the need for personal care and assistance with everyday activities such as getting dressed or bathing may have brought you to our community, it doesn't mean your desire to live an active, full, and meaningful life has changed. And it shouldn't have to. Here, you can have it all!
