The History Of Presby’s Inspired Life

Presby’s Inspired Life grew out of a response by members of the Presbytery of Philadelphia to provide quality housing and long-term care for older adults in the greater Philadelphia region. In 1955, the retirement community that would later be known as Rosemont was opened to offer housing for 14 older adults who needed to be relocated after their previous senior living community closed. That residence was the first Presbyterian retirement community of what is now Presby’s Inspired Life, and that initial act of charity spawned a ministry that continues to enrich an increasing number of lives.

Nurturing the body, mind and spirit is our priority throughout our Life Plan Communities, formerly known as Continuing Care Retirement Communities, or CCRCs. At these residential communities, we offer a wide range of active senior living options, including independent living, personal care, short-term rehabilitation, long-term skilled nursing care and memory care programs. Our broad range of cultural, educational, spiritual and dining programs create limitless opportunities for residents to stay active and engaged while enjoying the peace of mind that comes from knowing that additional care is available if needed. Our communities for adults 62 and better are among the most respected in the Philadelphia region.

In our Affordable Housing communities, our long-term partnerships with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency have created opportunities for residents to experience an enhanced quality of life that they may otherwise not have known. Residents with limited financial resources enjoy life in safe, affordable and beautiful apartments in welcoming residential communities. What’s more, our reputation for excellence in sponsorship, development and management of senior living properties remains the catalyst for other Affordable Housing developers to seek our expertise in managing their senior apartment communities, resulting in several new referrals each year.

Throughout its history, Presby’s Inspired Life has shown a constant, values-based commitment to residents. Our residential communities and services for adults 62 and better go far beyond typical nursing homes or care for older adults. Our goal is to create an environment that brings engagement and possibility to the lives of all those we serve.
