What is Short Term Rehabilitation?

Short-term rehabilitation helps residents recover from a hospital stay. It provides individualized rehabilitation and nursing therapy for accidents, strokes, hip fractures, joint replacement and other skilled nursing needs. Our goal is to build residents’ strength and skill levels, helping them adapt to new challenges as they progress through treatment toward the fullest and most independent life possible.

What is Long-Term Care Skilled nursing?

Skilled nursing provides seniors with 24-hour nursing care in a residential setting. Seniors needing a higher level of care, such as one-on-one assistance with meals, complete care for activities of daily living (dressing, medication management, bathing, etc…) would likely reside in the skilled nursing home. Additional services provided in skilled nursing communities include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, diabetes management, medication management, wound care, cardiac care, IV/antibiotic therapy, hospice and palliative care as well as social services.

Skilled Nursing at PPH

PPH is much different from other nursing homes in Philadelphia. We provide a beautiful and peaceful setting for providing the highest quality nursing care. A rehabilitation coordinator assists every resident through the continuum of care and into the community by assessing the resident’s level of care, communicating needs to families and coordinating discharge plans. The interdisciplinary team collaborates to ensure each resident is receiving the optimal level of nursing care while following the mission and values of PPH.

In Pathways, we believe individuals have healthcare needs that change over time. We provide compassionate care to help uplift long-term care residents so they can enjoy a high quality of life. Our facility is secure, the staff cheerful and the environment bright and stimulating. If you are searching for the best Philadelphia nursing home, Pathways is the best place for you.

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
