Faith-Based Housing That Meets Evolving Needs

Residents at Pennswood Village in Bucks County, Pa., a “spiritually vibrant” retirement community founded on Quaker values. When Elaine Daniels turned 60, she made a small deposit on a senior living apartment at Pennswood Village, knowing that one day she might want to move into the retirement community founded on Quaker values.

In November, at age 78, she finally did.

“I didn’t want to worry any more about the roof leaking or shoveling snow,” said Ms. Daniels, an artist who had previously lived in nearby New Hope, Pa. “I did not have a husband. I did not have a child. I wanted to go someplace that would take care of me the rest of my life. “

Ms. Daniels chose what is called a continuing care retirement community, which provides a range of care from independent and assisted living to skilled nursing. Some are faith-based, like Pennswood, where she now lives independently in a newly renovated apartment with access to three dining rooms, various services, including health care and shuttle bus service, and excursions to chamber music concerts in Princeton, N.J.
