Couple SunRoom Topton webNearby senior living campuses offer the best of both worlds. Not sure if you want to enjoy retirement in the city or country? Diakon Senior Living makes the decision easy.

Whether you choose suburban Luther Crest in Allentown or the charming setting of The Lutheran Home at Topton, you are just a short distance from the other community, making it possible for you to enjoy the amenities, events and programs that interest you at both locations—transportation included!

The two Continuing Care Retirement Communities offer independent living, personal care, memory care, short- and longer-term rehabilitation and traditional nursing care. While Luther Crest boasts multiple dining options, a billiard lounge, heated pool, woodworking shop and on-campus Medical Arts Building, Topton’s nature trails and pond, fitness center, historic locale and on-site Brandywine Community Library are equally appealing. Both locations offer infinite opportunities for a rewarding lifestyle.

But even the most vibrant older adults may need occasional assistance with daily tasks. When that happens, Topton residents benefit from Personal Care at The Buehrle Center, which offers everything needed to continue an active lifestyle without health care or home-maintenance worries. Available 24/7, our staff members help residents with daily activities such as bathing, dressing or assistance with medications. The goal: maintaining as much independence as possible.

For people with a memory-related illness, Topton offers memory care at The Timothy M. Breidegam Center. This secure personal care community promotes safety without compromising independence. Trained, nurturing staff helps residents maintain individuality, dignity and quality of life through specialized care, needs-based programming and meaningful activities.

Need additional support following a hospital stay or short-term rehabilitation? If so, our Bridge to Home program provides short-term services so residents can quickly return to the lifestyle they most enjoy. Individualized care plans mean people achieve their goals, strengthen their bodies, maximize independence and minimize the likelihood of re-hospitalization. The program is more affordable than a short-term rehab stay in a skilled nursing unit.

So choose country or city! Either way, as a resident of Luther Crest or The Lutheran Home at Topton, you will find everything you need for a full life, while your family enjoys peace of mind knowing you are in good hands should health-care needs change. Plan now to visit both campuses and learn why our residents proudly proclaim, “This is the way to live!”
