Located in Topton, Pennsylvania, in northeast Berks County, the Continuing Care Retirement Community includes senior living accommodations in its Tower Court apartments and Luther Haven cottages, various levels of memory care in both skilled nursing and personal care, a personal care community, and a large nursing care and rehabilitation center providing both short- and long-term care. Amenities include a fitness center and walking trails.
