Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Philadelphia Protestant Home (PPH), at all times, is concerned for the ongoing welfare, safety, and health of our residents. To minimize the risk of our residents becoming infected with COVID-19, we continue to restrict all visits to PPH, until further noticeThis decision was made in accordance with recommendations from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and PPH Emergency Preparedness Plans.

COVID-19 is now spreading within Philadelphia County. To the best of our knowledge, none of our residents or staff members have contracted COVID-19.

The CDC has made several recommendations to reduce the potential for the virus to enter our buildings. PPH is following those recommendations. These include strict handwashing procedures, and in many circumstances, wearing facemasks, gowns, and gloves when interacting with residents who are ill. In addition, PPH is following guidance from our local and state health departments. For the most up-to-date information on this topic, please visit the CDC website at http://www.cdc.gov/covid19.


Please watch the below video of Rep. Jared Solomon interviewing our President & CEO, Anthony Manzo regarding preparations and community life during the COVID-19 epidemic.

What Residents Say

"In my two 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.
