Community Description

Welcome to Simpson House, America’s oldest retirement community historically related to the United Methodist Church.

Walk through the front door and you will immediately sense the friendliness and welcoming spirit that makes Simpson House a very special place. A close-knit community of independent seniors, we take great pride in the fact that each new resident immediately feels a part of the Simpson House “family.”

Simpson House is conveniently located at the corner of Belmont and Monument Avenues and overlooks beautiful Fairmont Park. Simpson House was founded in 1865 to attend to the needs of older persons in the community after the Civil War. This unbroken chain of caring exists today as we provide a unique and reputable tradition of commitment, care and affordability.

Levels of Care

Simpson House has served older adults in the Philadelphia area for over 100 years and has earned the reputation of a warm and caring community that provides exceptional senior retirement living. Independent Living, Personal Care, Flanagan Health and Rehabilitation Center and Memory Impairment Program are all part of Simpson House. Setting it apart from others, this well-respected community has been accredited since 1993 by the Continuing Care Accreditation Commission (CCAC).

Although Simpson House has historical ties to the United Methodist Church, we are truly a community that values diversity and individuality, and welcome all adults 65 and older without regard to religious, ethnic, racial or economic background. Simpson House features a campus of neighborhoods, each with its own personality, style and services to suit your individual needs.

Independent Living

Our Olde Main building at Simpson House has a floor plan to suit every lifestyle. We feature 12 different apartment styles, ranging from a studio to our spacious two-bedroom, two-bath apartment. Our recently renovated apartments feature new kitchens or kitchenettes, private baths, generous closets, individual heating and air conditioning controls, expansive windows looking out on a wooded campus, and unique architectural designs sure to complement your individual décor. Regardless of the size of the apartment you choose, maintenance and housekeeping services are readily available so you may enjoy the daily planned social activities.

The Bennett Building features studio and one-bedroom apartments with private bathrooms and enough space to create your comfortable new home. A leisure lifestyle with housekeeping and linen services provided will allow you to take part in the daily social activities. The best things about Bennett are the price and the advanced service package.

Independent Living residents dine in one of two dining rooms, the Philadelphia Room or the Barnes Dining Room. The Philadelphia Room features dining in an elegant and attractive setting where delicious meals prepared by our Executive Chef are served each evening. A restaurant style menu offers a variety of entrees and other delicious selections.

Personal Care

The Simpson House community features assisted living studio apartments located in separate neighborhoods named Carson Commons and Wesley Commons. Our residents in these neighborhoods desire to live independently, but require some assistance with their daily lives. The assistance may be with bathing, dressing, transportation, and taking medications. Trained assisted living staff provides individualized supportive care, while encouraging the highest level of independence possible.

Each of our specially designed neighborhoods provides a secure, self-contained community that is easy to access and maximizes the individual’s freedom. A casual dining room, activity areas and comfortable living rooms add to the charm of our intimate, family style setting. Our residents feel right at home in their private spacious apartments, which feature self-controlled temperatures, a private bathroom and spacious closets.
Levels of Service

Simpson House has designed the Personal Care program to meet the varying needs of those who are at this stage in their lives. We have incorporated many services into three distinct levels of care. This tier system allows individuals to stay in their Personal Care apartments longer, even if their needs increase. Upon admission, a member of our Medical Staff will complete an assessment. This assessment will determine the level of care that best suits the individual at that time.
