Wellness & Aquatics Center

The PPH Wellness and Aquatics Center offers residents and active-agers in the community (45 years and older) a safe and comfortable environment to stay healthy and independent. The Wellness and Aquatics Center is a host site to five free programs if you qualify through your insurance provider: Silver Sneakers, Silver & Fit, Renew Active, One Pass, or Prime.

Our goal is to enhance the vibrancy and quality of life of the residents we house, and the community members we serve through physical activity, wellness, and fellowship. We strive to accomplish this through fitness, affordable facilities and programs, and to instill in members our philosophy to value health and wellness. We seek to motivate our participants through programs that will increase mobility, flexibility, muscle strength and endurance, and educate them to improve their quality of life through exercise and balanced nutrition.

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.
