Independent Living

I need to feel connected – to friends, to members of my retirement community, to the larger Philadelphia community.

Come and visit us to see why we are one of the best independent living communities in Philadelphia. PPH is both comfortable and affordable. Gone are many of the headaches of home ownership, while many of the pleasant aspects remain. Relaxation, security, things to do and places to go provide you with the lifestyle you choose! We have a busy schedule of activities and events promoting an active lifestyle.

We offer a variety of maintenance-free independent living options to fit your lifestyle needs. You can choose from modern and spacious studio, one or two bedroom apartments located in one of three independent living apartment buildings: Lawndale Manor, Alpha Manor and Gateway Manor. Each apartment is ADA compliant and has a full bathroom, kitchen, storage, cable-ready TV connection and many feature balconies. You can really personalize your space by choosing paint and flooring options. Upgrades for certain apartments can include: islands, built-in microwave, dishwashers and washer/dryer combos. It’s a place where you can feel at ease, meet new friends, get involved in a variety of daily activities and simply enjoy your best retirement lifestyle.

What Residents Say

"In my two 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 residents Jack & Bernice Segal
