I need to feel connected – to friends, to members of my retirement community, to the larger Philadelphia community.
PPH is a comfortable and affordable senior community in Northeast Philadelphia. Our senior independent living apartments are conveniently located in the Lawndale section of Philadelphia, minutes away from the culture, arts and delicious restaurants throughout the city. Come visit us to see why we are one of the best independent living communities in Philadelphia.
What is Independent Living?
Independent living is a senior living option for active seniors who require little to no assistance. Our Philadelphia independent living residents are able to live on their own and take care of themselves while enjoying the services, amenities and security of a retirement community. While residents in independent living apartments don’t usually need assistance, they have peace of mind knowing they have access to higher levels of care should their care needs change in the future. At PPH, our independent living residents have priority to switch over to personal care, memory care, or skilled nursing over the outside community.

Q: What happens if I run out of money?
If you are living in independent living and are unable to meet your monthly expenses, you may apply for assistance through our Benevolent Care Program. The benevolent care program raises funds throughout the year to help residents remain in a community that is familiar in the event their personal funds run out.
Q: Is transportation available?
PPH provides transportation for doctor and medical appointments in the area surrounding our community. For your convenience, a bus is provided each week to two local supermarkets. There is no charge for these services. If public transportation is what you are looking for, there are two bus stops directly off our property. Weekly excursions are also scheduled for independent residents to a variety of places of interest.
