125th Anniversary


On March 4, 1890, the vision of our founding fathers – to find a better way to minister to the needs of the aging – became a reality. March 4th also marks the date that our Home was incorporated, our Charter granted, and Maria Magdalena Seitz became our first resident – these are the roots of what is now our treasured past.


Since then, thousands of older adults at PPH have been offered an opportunity to live their retirement years with a new purpose, to age with dignity, and to be free of worry if they are no longer able to afford the cost of their care. As we celebrate this milestone, we ask our PPH Family to help us continue to make a difference.


As heirs to our founders’ vision, we are humbled and inspired to their example and to further their legacy of philanthropy with our 125th Anniversary Campaign to help pave the way for a triumphant future.


With your donation, residents of PPH will continue to enjoy life to the fullest and to age triumphantly.

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
