If you live in it, you should love it.

The best part is, you can make your apartment home your own. Just drop by the PPH Design Center and see all the interior design options and materials to update your living space as you see fit. Plus, we can coordinate your move, give you resources for downsizing and moving experts, introduce you to reputable real estate agents and help you organize the layout of your new apartment.

Once you’re in, we’ll do the rest.

Never worry about upkeep, maintenance or repairs. Need a lightbulb changed? Just give us a call. We can arrange for laundry and housekeeping services as well. And, if you want to jet off to Floria or visit family for an extended stay, all you have to do is lock up your apartment and go. We’ll do the rest. And when you return, everything will be how you left it.

The non-profit difference.

Long-term peace of mind is a deciding factor for choosing a not-for-profit community like PPH. Access to higher levels of care is available should their needs change in the future. In fact, independent living residents have priority access to switch to a personal care apartment, memory care or skilled nursing should the need arise. And, if you ever outlive your money due to no fault of your own, you can apply for support from our Benevolence Fund. For-profit communities do not offer Benevolence Funds.

A safe place to thrive.

Our director of security has been with us for over 20 years and is a former Philadelphia police officer. With his help, PPH has invested in a robust security system with a gate at the entrance and a 24/7 on-site security team. Plus, we have a backup generator to weather any city-wide power outages.

The PPH security team is a part of our family. They serve the residents in many other ways that go beyond just protection. Whether helping to locate misplaced keys, purses or phones, answering questions or just checking in on the general well-being of residents, our security team is truly a well-trained, friendly group of dedicated professionals. Plus, every resident has an emergency call system for emergency health response or security matters.
