About Highlands at Wyomissing, The

Who We Are

Premier retirement living without pretense.

The Highlands is situated on 113 acres of gently rolling land with tree-lined roads and walkways located next to the beautiful Wyomissing Park. Our retirement community draws a diverse group of residents from the surrounding counties and beyond. We remain the only senior community in Berks County to provide 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 center providing comprehensive acute care, post-acute rehabilitation, behavioral, and occupational health services to the people of Berks and adjoining counties.

Today, The Highlands offers 247 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 swimming pool, computer center, 5,000-book library, art studio, billiards room, woodworking shop, and a putting green. Services include three diverse dining venues, social events, bi-weekly housekeeping, maintenance, full-service on-site bank, transportation, and educational enrichment opportunities. Residents also enjoy the added security of lifecare with our on-site healthcare featuring 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 retirement 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.
