PHILADELPHIA PROTESTANT HOME
June 26, 2013

My 97 year old aunt is moving in to PPH in July 2013. We had our tour in the latter part of May 2013. PPH is wonderful! The facility my aunt now resides in is sad and pathetic, as though the few residents residing there were just waiting out their time. Very little to do of any interest. The few residents sitting in the main tv room seemed to be just staring at the tv without realizing or caring what they were actually watching. The food at this same horrible facility is horrendous and not fit for a dog. I personally had diner there and can't imagine the senior residents being able to tolerate or digest any of it.
Now PPH on the other hand is a bustling little city unto itself. A lot of the residents are out about throughout the facility. I can truly state that I did not see one resident who looked unhappy, forlorn or lost. Everybody had a smile on their faces and they were all so very friendly and willing to answer any questions I or my aunt had. We asked many questions of the residents and they were random selections. We asked residents in the dining room, in the hallways and everywhere our tour took us we stopped and asked questions. Not one of the 11 residents we spoke with had a negative thing to say about PPH. They were so excited that my aunt was considering PPH and let her know that she would not be disappointed if she moved in. The residents we questioned freely told us all kinds of things about PPH especially when it came to the food. They rated the food as extremely good. As we had lunch as part of our tour I can speak for my aunt and I that the food was wonderful. The food was first of all very fresh and it was served hot or cold as the dish warranted. The seafood salad was extremely tasty and all the ingredients were fresh as if just picked or fished. I cannot say enough good about PPH and my aunt is eagerly awaiting her move in. Hope this helps there isn't a better place to bring your loved one.
