My mom's new home

reviewed on: 05/11/2020 by Fred Weiss

Penn House has a number of positive aspects. The location is ideal and is in a quiet neighborhood in town, the facility is small which allows for a much different experience, and there are beautiful gardens and walking paths for the residents to enjoy which is unusual being in an urban environment. The staff are so personable, with a nice and warm feeling, which makes me feel confident about my mom living there. Another unique feature is that it is a historic building, and at 92, my mom really enjoys that feeling. The building is decorated like a museum which is very pleasing to her and to me. Overall, the food is good and the dining area is warm and inviting like a restaurant.

A Wonderful Non-Profit Facility Where You Are More Than a Number!

reviewed on: 10/17/2017 by Melissa L. Stager

Visiting facilities for my mother was a bit overwhelming and slightly depressing until I found Penn Home. Right away I knew it was the place for my mom when the person on the tour actually helped and spoke with the residents. My choice was further supported by the perfect record of the facility on the state website, and the value for the money. Mom has been here for almost ten months and we couldn't be happier. I am so glad a place like Penn Home exsists.

A Wonderful Non-Profit Assisted Living Facility!

This was an incredible place. During the tour the staff interacted with the residents, and everyone on staff seemed truly happy. The residents seem happy too! I moved mom there three weeks ago and she likes it. She keeps thanking me for finding it! A non-profit is totally the way to go if you want affordablity and excellence combined. We highly recommend this home.
