Guide to Retirement Communities

We have assembled information about continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) in the Philadelphia region, including many where Penn faculty and retirees currently reside and have been resident recently.  The information in our report has been provided by the CCRCs and sourced from their websites.  We hope you find this information useful if you are considering moving to a CCRC.  Retirement communities are constantly developing or otherwise changing their living arrangements, amenities, and cost structure, and it is important to check directly with the CCRCs you are considering for up-to-date information.  The information provided here is a good starting point.   The report gives contact information for each of the CCRCs.  The PASEF office has contact information for Penn faculty and retirees currently living in the listed CCRCs, and you may email if you wish to talk to residents about their experience at a CCRC.

The initial CCRC report was compiled in July, 2014 by Howard Goldfine, James Saunders, and Heidi George.  The current updated version was prepared by Paul Shaman during the 2018–2019 academic year.
