I’m staying active mentally, socially and physically for as long as I can.

Living at PPH means living life to its fullest. Residents enjoy peace of mind and worry-free living thanks to our range of helpful services. PPH residents have access to endless social opportunities ranging from Yoga and fitness classes to stain glass work and quilting. WiSE (Wisdom in Senior Education) classes are offered three semesters per year. Classes are taught by staff or volunteers and subjects range from learning to play Shuffleboard to doll-house building. Our holistic wellness approach encourages a healthy, fulfilling, active lifestyle that engages the mind, body, and spirit.

Mind- Our brains retain the ability to grow and change throughout our lives. New experiences, new challenges and mental exercises can strengthen and enhance cognitive function over time. PPH offers opportunities to engage in book clubs, WiSE classes, volunteer opportunities, discussion groups and socialize with friends all while maximizing cognitive skills.

Body- A growing body of evidence shows lifestyle and nutrition choices affect “whole-person” wellness. You can choose from an array of programs and activities to improve physical health and heart healthy options at every meal . Feeling good both physically and mentally is the basis to a healthy life.

Spirit- One of the beautiful aspects of being a part of our PPH family is the diverse faith traditions represented by residents and staff alike. We recognize the value of spiritual wellness and offer opportunities to explore various aspects of spirituality through yoga classes, multi-denominational services and activities that encourage friendship and fellowship.

With such an array of amenities, you can continue living the lifestyle you have or start living the one you have always wanted!

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
