The organization that runs it is associated with the Presbytery of Philadelphia, as the name of that property should indicate.

That organization has two separate divisions. One operates several dozen apartment buildings for lower-income seniors throughout the city and some of its suburbs. These are all independent living facilities, and they offer some community facilities but not much in the way of services or amenities.

The other operates senior living communities ranging from independent living to continuous care and charges market rents for their units. These are very nicely equipped and outfitted facilities with a panoply of facilities, services and programs for their residents.

OK, so as we said, the Riverside Tower is a low-income facility. The other ones are the type that can provide independent to nursing home care. Might be overkill for him at this point.

If the uncle just wants an over-55 at this point, I think there are tons of other active communities that have been mentioned above. If the uncle would prefer to be in a location with other Jewish folks, I believe the Wynnewood/Lower Merion area would be great for him, and the Green Hill Condos offer a lot of amenities, including tennis. Plus the area is super-convenient to center city.
