Summer at PPh

Posted on: May 27, 2016

What event perennially marks the first day of summer for you? As children, it was often the last day of school. As adults, it can be something simple like wearing shorts outside for the first time, or perhaps the first day of the season that you have Italian water ice from Rita’s.
We each tend to have our own ways of deciding when summer officially has arrived, and these ideas tend to vary. Summertime in the Delaware Valley can mean a lot of different things such as Phillies games, trips to the Jersey shore, and evening walks along the Schuylkill River Trail. It also can mean a summer concert at PPh, a 4th of July Parade down Rising Sun Avenue, or even taking a cool stroll inside Neshaminy Mall on a hot day.
Summer is always a busy time at PPh, and this year will not be any different. Our summer concerts begin on June 23 with The Ferko String Band making a heralded return to our beautiful community. The John Hoey Orchestra visits PPh on July 14. Tell your friends, get a group together, and come down and listen to some great music with the rest of the PPh family. Have a wonderful June.

What Residents Say

"In my nine years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.…especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.

– Rhonda Frenkel, daughter of resident Bernice Segal
