Why we moved to PPH

Posted on: Nov 29, 2018

Let’s be honest. Moving to a senior living community is not easy. Our residents each have a different reason why they moved but all came to the same place. At PPH we thrive on ensuring that our residents, who come from all walks of life, have the experience of their dreams. For the Sextons, who joined our PPH Family in 2017, it’s about the future. At a Resident Panel session we held earlier this year for individuals interested in moving to PPH in the future, Marge Sexton said, “I’d rather be here 10 years early than 10 minutes too late.” She and her husband Tom went on to discuss how they were initially planning to wait until a bigger unit became available. Tom was in no rush to make the move, Marge felt that they should move while they are both in good health and can get acclimated to the community.

Marge and Tom are really enjoying their new home, the great food and most importantly, the day-to-day feeling of community. “It’s great to feel like you’re part of a neighborhood.”

These sentiments are shared by many other residents who live here at PPH. While Personal Care and Skilled Nursing residents have more healthcare needs, the preference for PPH is undeniable. With such a variety of Life Enrichment activities including block parties, cocktail hours and pop-up malls, getting much needed quality nursing care while enjoying life as much as possible is most ideal.

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
