Short-Term Respite Care.

At PPH, we offer short-term respite care stays in our Philadelphia personal care community. Our respite care community welcomes those in need of short-term care after rehab. After therapy, respite care residents enjoy all the amenities offered to our permanent residents. Our Philadelphia respite care also offers short-term care for seniors to provide caretakers rest. Families and caretakers can be assured their loved one is being cared for by our friendly, experienced staff while they are on vacation or enjoying a much-needed rest. Seniors who would like an opportunity to experience PPH for themselves before making a final decision about moving in are welcome to stay as part of our respite care program. Many respite care residents enjoy their stay so much, they decide to make PPH their next move.

Tenured team of professionals.

Compared to similar communities that struggle with short-staffing issues, PPH is pleased to report many of our team members who have been with the organization for decades. This longevity and retention of key team members creates continuity, ownership and commitment to the mission. And, most importantly, love and a genuine connection to our residents. In fact, many former employees moved into PPH after retiring, which speaks volumes about the quality of the care and lifestyle we provide to residents.

Frequently asked questions.

Q: How do I know what kind of care my family member needs?
A: When you schedule a tour of PPH, we will not only show you around the personal care community, we will address any questions or concerns you have. Generally, someone who is unable to take care of daily living tasks, such as dressing, eating, bathing, medicine management or other similar living tasks is probably in need of personal care services. Personal care, along with other care needs are determined after we have a chance to meet potential residents, evaluate their individual needs and design a custom plan unique to each person. If you are looking for an assisted living community in Philadelphia, our personal care community at PPH could be perfect for you.

Q: Should my family member try a respite care short-term stay before moving into PPH?
A: A short-term senior care stay is not required before a future resident moves in, but we recommend potential residents give it a try. By trying out our Philadelphia respite care, seniors have the chance to become familiar with the buildings, meet new friends and see what it is like to be a part of our PPH family. This helps seniors and their families feel much more comfortable with the move to our Philadelphia personal care community.


PPH has heavily invested in wellness and fitness programs to help keep mature bodies strong and agile. In fact, our state-of-the-art fitness club is on par with many retail fitness memberships and includes a pool for lap swimming and water aerobics. The pool is heated to a toasty but comfortable 84 degrees, in compliance with the Arthritis Foundation.

Wellness specialists will also educate participants about how to improve their quality of life with a mix of regular exercise and balanced nutrition. Sign up for a weekly class, such as tai chi or yoga, or speak with a staff member to help you set up a custom fitness program.

Separately, PPH also features a convenient on-site medical practice for regular checkups, specialty appointments, and blood draws. All of this adds up to healthy aging. Our PPH Wellness Center is a state-of-the-art facility, where you will find cardiovascular and resistance equipment.


In the Arts, Culture & Education (ACE) Center and Gardens, enjoy brightly lit spaces to inspire creativity, including elevated gardens plots. Find a cozy spot in the library to read a book, work on puzzles or surf the web. The PPH Greenhouse, run by residents and volunteers, offers home-grown plants for sale, with all profits donated to the PPH Benevolent Care Fund.

In addition, WiSE (Wisdom in Senior Education) classes, such as how to play shuffleboard and how to build a dollhouse, are offered three semesters per year.

We are proud to be situated close to Philadelphia and its rich history and cultural opportunities. Our residents enjoy frequent visits to town for plays, museum visits, restaurant openings and more. We support many of these outings with transportation to and from location.

What residents and family members 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

“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 two years — but it’s only been two months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.”
