For the third straight year Germantown Home received 5 (out of 5) stars from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Each year, CMS reviews several performance measures to provide residents and their families with an easy way to understand and assess nursing home quality. And in each state, the top 10% of nursing homes receive the coveted 5-star rating.
Philadelphia Senior Center-Allegheny (PSC-Allegheny), a 10,000 square-foot senior center on the Allegheny Senior Community in North Philadelphia, opened in January. The center is open to all seniors 55 and older and provides an upgraded facility for those who previously attended the Lehigh and Tioga branches of Philadelphia Senior Center (PSC).
Germantown Home launched its memory support program in 2015 which combines state-of-the-art design with a compassionate highly trained staff, and innovative programming to care for the unique needs of residents with Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia. Former Eagle and Congressman Jon Runyan helped officially open the program in October.
The Apartments at Allegheny welcomed its first residents in October. Located on NewCourtland’s Allegheny Senior Community, this building includes 60 one-bedroom apartments specifically designed for seniors 62 and older. 45 additional apartments are currently under construction next to this building.
Located at 3232 Henry Avenue in East Falls, this 15 acre, 322,000 square-foot site will eventually offer affordable senior apartments and a LIFE Center. NewCourtland is currently working with legislators, the community, and city planners to plan what else the future will hold for this unique campus.
