The new building, on same campus as LIFE Center, includes 60 apartments

NewCourtland Senior Services welcomed its first residents to The Apartments at Allegheny, a brand new building with 60 one-bedroom apartments specifically designed for seniors 62 and older.

NewCourtland’s Vice President of Health Services, Mary Austin, welcomed the residents and members of their families.

“I am proud to stand here on the site of the former Stanley Blacker Suit Factory in North Philadelphia with the first 14 residents of NewCourtland’s Apartments at Allegheny,” she said.

Many of the residents who will live in the building formerly resided in nursing homes but took advantage of NewCourtland’s Nursing Home Transition program to move back to the community. The Allegheny campus epitomizes NewCourtland’s unique approach to combining housing with medical care and supportive services. This model helps seniors live as independently as possible for as long as possible.

“All of this is designed to enable low-income seniors to live out of nursing homes and in the community,” Austin said. “We’re proud to give them the option to stay self-sufficient for as long as they are able.”

A second phase is planned for the Apartments at Allegheny with another 45 apartments.
