The state of Pennsylvania uses these terms differently than many of our surrounding states. The two terms were interchangeable until 2011, when the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania began to distinguish between assisted living residences and personal care homes, licensing them separately. By definition, they now differ somewhat in their levels of care. A personal care home offers housing, meals, medication assistance, and personal care tasks. An assisted living residence also provides skilled health care services to supplement personal care.

Our Personal Care Center here at Laurel View Village is licensed as a personal care facility through the Department of Human Services, but as a campus, we offer skilled health care services in our Health Care Center.
