Penn Home is a non profit personal care retirement residence located in the Fishtown/Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. Established in 1848 as the Penn Asylum for Indigent Widows and Single Women, the Home continues its charitable heritage today by offering an affordable option in age-appropriate housing and personal care to both men and women ages 60 and older. Throughout 169 years of operation, our mission endures: to provide a quality living environment that serves the physical, mental and spiritual needs of seniors surviving on limited resources. Residents’ physical needs are overseen by a full time Registered Nurse and a staff of Certified Nursing Assistants/Medication Technicians. Mental needs are met through daily activities such as games, entertainment and social events managed by our Activities Coordinator. And spiritual needs are tended to through visiting clergy and weekly religious services that are hosted in the Home’s on-site chapel. In 2013, Philadelphia Magazine named “Fishtown/Kensington” as one of the city’s hottest neighborhoods due to its “city feel, without the city price.” There are plenty of affordable options to choose from when it comes to leisure, entertainment and dining. The Sugar House Casino is just a mile from the facility. Residents can also take advantage of the free events that frequently take place at the nearby Penn Treaty Park and the Piazza at Schmidt’s. Penn Home is conveniently located just minutes away from center city Philadelphia, home to some of the nation’s best hospitals. The area offers plenty of public transit options allowing residents to easily navigate the city. In addition to Penn Home’s ideal location, it’s unique & historic facility is smaller and therefore more intimate than the average personal care home. The Home embodies the residential model of care which encourages and promotes independence. There are several common areas throughout the building which are perfect for residents’ to host their family and friends as guests.

"It helps to have someone objective who can think more clearly
for you and guide you and do some of the legwork for you because
your head is spinning and you have little time. Thanks again for
being that person for me. I may have gotten there eventually but
not after a lot of running around, and a lot of crying while I was
looking. You saved me from all of that and I am very thankful."
