Senior Services

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.

Phipps Neighborhoods does not recruit tenants for these properties and any questions should be directed to property management.
