At Pennswood Village, a Bucks County Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), you’ll find residents swimming and playing in our two indoor pools, located in the Passmore Fitness Center. The 60-foot lap pool and the warm water exercise pool make the fitness center a popular campus destination. The lap pool is kept at 82-84 degrees and the warm water pool a pleasant 90-92 degrees.
“It’s a very beautiful building,” says Kay Silberfeld, Pennswood resident. “You can look out the windows to the trees, and it’s quite beautiful, regardless of the weather outside.”
Captivating Aquatic Classes
Aquatic classes are held every morning, except Sundays in the 9 a.m. hour and the 10 a.m. hour. The 9 a.m. class is called Aqua Blend, a combination of cardio and vigorous movements. It starts with exercises in the lap pool, and then moves into the warm water pool for a well-rounded workout.
As a Quaker Continuing Care Retirement Community, Pennswood Village often celebrates stewardship, generosity, and giving back. The Employee Scholarship Fund is just one example of this culture in practice.
Every year, Pennswood Village residents contribute donations to the Employee Scholarship Fund, a fund dedicated to investing in the education of current Pennswood employees.
“The scholarship means that I am supported by the community,” says Nicole Folston, scholarship recipient and fitness trainer at Pennswood. “The support and encouragement I have received from the residents and my peers has been the most valuable to me through my back to school process.”
Donating to this fund is a special way for residents to thank employees for their hard work and to invest in their futures. Currently, the Scholarship Fund has benefitted almost 100 employees, with over half a million dollars donated.
