Harmony Place is an assisted living community located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This community is a great fit for seniors whose care needs may change over time but who wish to age in place. The facility offers a host of support services that are tailored to the needs of each individual resident. Residents enjoy restaurant-style dining, where three delicious meals are provided daily. Common areas for relaxation and social engagement give residents an opportunity to connect to their community. Additionally, each resident’s accommodations, meals, amenities, and utilities are covered in one all-inclusive monthly fee based on the amenities program chosen, room selection, and ongoing assessment of the individual’s needs.
What Residents are Saying:
Customers reflect on the many ways Harmony Place brought them peace of mind. One family member stated, “My dad lived at Harmony Place during his final years. The staff was very good and whatever food they served, he inhaled, so he seemed to like that a lot. The dining area was very nice and quaint. They had a few activities available that the residents could participate in, like bingo. His room and the facility were kept very clean. I highly recommend this place for others.”
