Penn Nursing's LIFE Program for Seniors Opens Facility That's Gone from Community Eyesore to Asset
April 26, 2007
WHAT: The grand opening of a new facility for the Living Independently for Elders, or LIFE program, a community outreach of the School of Nursing of the University of Pennsylvania. LIFE provides nursing home-level day care, including medical, dental and personal grooming services and social activities, for more than 300 frail elderly from West Philadelphia who are nursing home-eligible but prefer to live in their own homes. The LIFE staff also make house calls, providing in-home oversight to members.
