Finding a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) can seem daunting, especially with such a large selection to choose from. Each community has its own advantages and perks, so how do you know which one is right for you? Well, every week we will be highlighting some of our favorite CCRCs in the Philadelphia area to help make your decision a little easier. We’ll also tell you why we love these communities so if any of these CCRCs peak your interest, you can simply contact us and we’ll schedule a viewing. Our first highlighted community of the week is The Quadrangle.
Started in 1986 by a group of Haverford College professors, The Quadrangle has started a new style of retirement living. Originally an elegant English-country style mansion (the Linden House), this life plan community has expanded to several residential buildings in addition to nursing and personal care facilities and residential cottages.
Located in Haverford, The Quadrangle community is perfect for those looking for a low-key, relaxed lifestyle. From the fine dining to the concierge service to the heated indoor swimming pool, this community leaves little to be desired. They even have an on-site spa and stylist to ensure you’re always looking your best. Other highlights include:
- Walking trails
- Six-hole golf course
- Putting green
- Tennis courts
- Community garden and greenhouse
Perhaps one of the best qualities of The Quadrangle is the large selection of activities offered. This community hosts events for both independent living residents and personal care residents so you’ll definitely be able to find something to keep you busy everyday. Learn to speak Spanish or try some gentle yoga. Or if you prefer, hop on over to the comedy matinee for a great afternoon filled with laughs.
DINING OPTIONS GALORE!
If you enjoy delectable food and plenty of options, you’ll love living at The Quadrangle. Menus change seasonally to ensure residents are receiving an impressive variety.
