Built to take advantage of Pennsylvania's picturesque landscape while providing an exceptionally wholesome community in which older adults can thrive, St. Andrew's Village needed a makeover to further improve its capacity to enhance and nourish the lives of its residents.

The Long Community at Highland is a not-for-profit organization and joined the Presbyterian Senior Living network of care in 2009, becoming one of the thirty communities in the mid-Atlantic region. The original Long Home was established in the late 1800’s as a result of the generosity of the late Judge Henry G. Long. The Long Home was established to provide a home and care for Lancaster’s widows and single women who did not possess the resources to care for themselves. Since that time, admission expanded to include men.
