The Terrace at Chestnut Hill

Review by Barbara B


The Terrace at Chestnut Hill is not what I was looking for. They didn't have 1-bedroom apartment. The place itself was so different from the rest of the ones that I looked at. It wasn't really spacious, but it was more intimate. It had common rooms, so it was different from the other facilities in that sense...

Deer Meadows Retirement Community

Review by Jim


Deer Meadows was a nice place, but it was like an old Baptist home and looked institutionalized. It's near Nazareth Hospital. The rooms were OK, but they were smaller than what my brother-in-law has now.

Deer Meadows Retirement Community

My grandmother is doing very well in Deer Meadows. It's a nice and clean place, the food is good, and her apartment is very nice. The place is also safe and handicapped-accessible, which is good considering that most senior places in this area are not...

My mother stayed at Wesley Enhanced Living Burholme for two weeks for respite care. They were pretty good, and the food was good. They were understaffed. I don't think most of my complaints were heard well...

The Watermark At Logan Square

Review by Pat


The entry fee at The Watermark at Logan Square is something we could afford, unlike other places. It isn't cheap, but we like everything they have. The food is good, and my mom's apartment is really nice. They have activities and amenities where the seniors don't have to go out if they don't want to...

Information About Assisted Living Facility in Philadelphia

Home to the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, Philadelphia can easily be considered America's most historical city. Our country was essentially born in Philadelphia, where both the Declaration of Independence and The United States Constitution were signed. As residents of assisted living in Philadelphia stroll the streets of their city, they never know when they might stumble upon the next famous building or landmark. Located in what was once the most populous area of the United States, Philadelphia now contains the fifth highest number of citizens in the nation. Over 185,000 of residents are age 65 or older. Seniors living in The City of Brotherly Love will experience sun in the summer, snow in the winter, and mild autumns and springs.

Philadelphia Attractions

Philadelphia is best known for its many museums and historical attractions, but the city also offers ample encounters with nature at the Philadelphia Zoo, Longwood Gardens and Valley Forge National Park. In the evenings, seniors enjoying assisted living in Philadelphia can relax while viewing a Broadway show, opera or musical recital in the glass-domed Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. The city is a shopper's paradise from the elegant King of Prussia Mall to the savings found at the Philadelphia Premium Outlets—and clothing is always tax-free in Pennsylvania!

Philadelphia Senior Activities

The Philadelphia Corporation for Aging (PCA) funds nearly 50 community senior centers throughout the city. The PCA website provides a helpful calendar of activities and programs geared specifically for elderly Philadelphians. Tech-savvy residents of assisted living in Philadelphiacan keep up with the city's senior services and events by subscribing to the Milestones eNews online magazine.

Philadelphia Medical Facilities

Albert Einstein Medical Center is the area's premier teaching hospital, and it offers residents of assisted living in Philadelphia a free health and wellness membership program called Premier Years. If your loved one is in the mood to mix history with health, there's nothing better than a visit to Pennsylvania Hospital, an institution founded by Benjamin Franklin in 1751. Now affiliated with the University of Philadelphia Health System, only the roots of this facility remain in the past, as their medicinal practices have advanced dramatically over the years since the hospital's establishment.  

Philadelphia Transportation

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) offers a wide variety of public transportation options. Seniors age 65 years or older ride free on all buses, trolleys and subways. It costs residents of assisted living in Philadelphia only $1.00 to ride the railway system within Pennsylvania and 50% of the standard fare to cross into neighboring states. Customized Community Transportation (CCT) provides a paratransit service called CCT Connect to senior citizens. CCT Connect operates as a door-to-door drop-off or a shared-ride program. Riders must pay a fee for either service.
