On March 4, 1890, the noble vision of our founding ministers – to better tend to the needs of aging parishioners – became a life – changing reality. It was then that The Philadelphia Protestant Home (PPH) was incorporated in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and we welcomed our first resident, Maria Magdalena Seitz.
With more than 127 years of experience, PPH has been a leader in providing seniors access to an active, purposeful lifestyle, affordable quality care and peace-of-mind security.
Today, our community offers superior Independent Living, Personal Care, Rehabilitation, and Skilled Nursing options to 600 residents in a loving, family-oriented, and wholesome senior living community.
The Philadelphia Protestant Home (PPH), founded in 1889, is a non-profit senior living community in Northeast Philadelphia, licensed by the Department of Human Services (DHS) and the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) and certified by the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS). Pathways Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is recognized by U.S. News & World Report as one of the best nursing homes in the country and continues to receive a five-star rating from CMS. PPH is dedicated to service, excellence and the highest quality of senior living. PPH fosters a caring environment, promotes independence, advances individual dignity and respect, and encourages a sense of family. PPH provides lifelong access to a full continuum of services to some 600 residents, including Independent Living, Personal Care, Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation, Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of Memory Care.
Q: Can I enter at any level of care?
Residents may enter directly into personal care or Pathways, our skilled nursing and rehabilitation center, depending on their healthcare needs. Personal care offers assistance with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, and medication administration. Each resident enjoys individualized care, a private room, three meals per day, plus laundry and cleaning services. Pathways offers skilled nursing care for those who require the best medical services available. We provide compassionate care and planned activities so they may enjoy the highest quality of life possible.
Q: What if I run out of money?
PPh’s motto is “We’re Family.” Our residents become a part of our family and families take care of each other. Prospective residents must submit a detailed financial application. Approval is based upon the applicant’s age, income and assets. If you are living in personal care or independent living and are unable to meet your monthly expenses you may apply for assistance from our Benevolent Care Program. Pathways, our healthcare center, is Medicaid and Medicare certified. Both of these programs allow you to continue receiving quality care and remain in a community that is familiar.
