Carefree Living in a Country Setting at Elmcroft of Reading

Our ranch-style senior living home has been part of the vibrant Reading community since 2006. Residents enjoy walking, conversing with fellow residents and participating in activities on our beautiful grounds tucked into scenic woodlands. And, we offer events, recreational amenities, field trips and classes to fit each resident’s interests, talents and activity level. All maintenance and housekeeping is included, so days are spent enjoying life, not doing chores.


We take our residents’ preferences into consideration in every way. Our personal care home is pet friendly, so dogs and cats are welcome. All rooms are private, and they’re available in a variety of sizes and styles. Menus feature multiple choices of chef-prepared meals served restaurant-style in our dining room or as room service. Fun activities are planned according to the interests of our residents. And when residents want some peaceful quiet, our patio, gardens, outdoor courtyard and comfortable indoor gathering spaces are just right for reading or contemplation.


What really underscores carefree living at Elmcroft of Reading is our capability to meet the needs of our residents, even as those needs change. Our staff are specially trained in the full range of personal care skills. That means our residents can enjoy as much independence as safely as possible, as long as possible.


Respectful, Compassionate Care

One of the many things our residents compliment us on is our staff. Our management and care staff have 169 years of combined experience in senior living care. And, our 24-hour resident care staff, culinary staff, housekeeping and activities coordinators are completely devoted to making our residents happy and at home.


When our residents need a little extra help throughout the day and night, our personal care staff are specially trained to provide the considerate and compassionate service that helps them thrive. We provide help with day-to-day tasks like incontinence and medication management as well as dressing, bathing and dining. And we’re there with support for safe engagement in fun activities like art classes, billiards, cooking classes, gardening club, outdoor parties and barbecues, trivia contests and wine tastings.
