LIFE Program (Living Independently for Elders)

LIFE (Living Independently for Elders) is a comprehensive program that provides healthcare services and social activities to seniors who are nursing facility clinically eligible, but want to live independently in their homes. LIFE is modeled after the Federal Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). The LIFE model of care is centered around the belief that it is better for older adults and for their families if their chronic care needs are provided in the community whenever possible.

PHA partners with two LIFE providers, Mercy LIFE and NewCourtland LIFE, to offer the program on site at two PHA senior properties - the Pratt Apartments at Greater Grays Ferry Estates and Germantown House.
