Wednesdays at PPh

Posted on: Sep 13, 2016

If you’ve ever visited us on a Wednesday, then you know about the memorable music medleys playing from our lobby. Courtesy of WBCB 1490AM’s Sunshine Memories with Gaet Martini, Smilin’ Lou Powers and Chris Ermer, every Wednesday morning from 10-12 our residents, along with WBCB listeners, have a chance to enjoy the show right from The Philadelphia Protestant Home. Guests on the show include PPh staff, current residents, and family members discussing current news, plus anything and everything PPh.

DJs and friends to PPh, Lou Powers and Chris Ermer, recently hosted our Caribbean Fiesta a few weeks ago (images below). Guests were dancing to some oldies and newbies while enjoying the festivities with some island flare. They also won some great raffle prizes, including tickets to our upcoming Havana Nights Gala on September 30, 2016.

Tune in every Wednesday morning from 10-12 to 1490AM, listen through, or stop by to enjoy the show!

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
