To allow seniors to “age in place,” Phipps Neighborhoods offers on-site supportive services for residents at some Phipps Houses apartment buildings. Seniors from each community receive the assistance and skills-development they need to maintain healthy and independent lives. Social activities, professional services, and health-related partnerships are designed to help seniors stay active, combat loneliness, and participate in engaging experiences.
