Assisted Living or Personal Care Services Is there a Difference - Serving Lancaster, York, Harrisburg, PA


Brereton Manor was the very first Assisted Living home to be built as an Assisted Living Home in the state of Pennsylvania. Because of this we were the leader in assisted living that many other facilities were modeled after.

Assisted living care homes are designed to aid those who are more independent. Often a resident in assisted living care is capable of holding employment outside of the facility but needs additional supervision either while at the place of employment and /or during their commute. Assisted living care homes are required to have a kitchenette in the residentís room so that they may prepafe their own meals if they desire to do so. Because of the additional staffing requirements and the kitchenette, assisted care can cost more than personal care.

Brereton Manor has only 25 bedrooms of varying size. This allows for a range of prices as the costs associated with staying at Brereton Manor is partially based upon the size of the bedroom a resident occupies.
