Throughout 167 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.
