Frequently Asked Questions

What is a CCRC?

A continuing care retirement community offers lifestyle options including independent living, personal care, skilled nursing, memory care, and rehabilitation on one campus. Residents benefit from a full scope of care needs addressed in one community, avoiding another move should their needs change.

Can I enter at any level of care?

Residents may enter directly into personal care or Pathways, our skilled nursing 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.

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 health care center, is Medicaid and Medicare certified. Both of these programs allow you to remain in a community that is familiar to you.

Must I be Protestant to live at PPh?

Don’t let the “Protestant” in our name fool you. Yes, we are proud of our Protestant history and are grounded in our Christian roots, but PPh is home to residents of many denominations and faiths. PPh promotes diversity among our residents and staff.

Are dining options available?

Enjoy the service of our friendly staff in Main at Martin’s Mill, our formal dining room where lunch and dinner are served restaurant style. If you are looking for a lighter fair, visit the Bistro at 6500 or Scoops, our popular ice cream parlor. Scoops also offers sandwiches, soups, hot dogs, hamburgers, and a daily entrée special. The PPh Café offers breakfast and lunch options. Whatever option you choose, you will not go hungry at PPh.
