Our Community

Northland Heights Senior Living

As one of Pittsburgh’s newest facilities, we feature newly constructed rooms and amenities with beautiful finishes thoughtfully designed to feel like home for today’s seniors. Conveniently located off McKnight Road near many dining and shopping options, we are tucked away in the quiet trees with tranquil views, offering the best of both worlds for our residents and loved ones.
With our main floor offering an array of amenities and gathering spaces for our robust activities calendar, you’ll be impressed by the energy you feel when you walk in the door. Our residential floors, on the other hand, offer privacy, security and peace of mind with nurses on-site, not just on call, 24/7. Additional comfort comes from knowing that our Independent Living and Memory Care residents enjoy dedicated floors, each designed for their specific needs and wants.

A Letter from The Administrator

Cheryl Fester

Hello, my name is Cheryl Fester and I am the administrator of Northland Heights. For over 20 years, I’ve worked in the senior healthcare industry. I obtained my license as a Licensed Practical Nurse in 2005 and worked my way from floor nurse to Director of Nursing to Administrator. I have used my knowledge and passion for helping others to make the communities I lead the best they can be.

I have infused this knowledge and passion into the creation of this truly special community. I’d love to share that passion with you and answer any questions you might have as you learn more about senior living. If you have not had the chance, please schedule some time to visit us. I’d love for you and your loved one to meet our employees and residents and experience first-hand what a special place Northland Heights is.

I look forward to meeting you soon.

-Cheryl Fester
