My older brother (age 61) is having some medical/neurological issues right now – “ataxia,” which means he has blackouts from time to time. Not clear why, and not at all clear if they’re going to be able to do anything about it.
He’s looking to move back to Philly (on top of everything else, he and his wife split up last fall – he’s been in DC for the last 30 years), and needs to find a place to live where there’s some support for him. Specifically, someone available to come help if he buzzes if he has an incident. Also, since he can’t drive, accessible to public transportation, or with a van or whatever available for shopping and getting to the library, etc. And not too expensive. And a nice place to live – not a “nursing home” per se.
So he’s looking at some retirement communities (the Quakers have a bunch in this area – our family is Quaker – like Kendall, Medford Leas, etc.) – but wants to explore as many options as possible.
If anyone knows anything about semi-assisted living in the Philly area, pls. let me know.
Thanks in advance.
