Philadelphia has a high proportion of citizens over the age of 65, a significant segment of whom are frail and isolated. While their preference is to continue living in the comfort of their homes and communities for as long as possible, many are unable to afford the resources that enable them to do so.
The Pew Fund for Health and Human Services in Philadelphia provides operating and project-specific support for the delivery of crucial services that can make the difference between a safe, secure home environment and placement in a nursing home. These services include personal care, such as light housekeeping and help with bathing and dressing; home-delivered meals and chore services; mental health and social support; and information, referral and legal assistance to help the elderly obtain and maintain public benefits and other community supports.
The Pew Fund for Health and Human Services in Philadelphia was created by Pew in 1991 to support nonprofits in Philadelphia and neighboring Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties.
