Independence never felt so good

As a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), Pennswood Village provides a full spectrum of wellness and healthcare services but above all, it offers independent options—be it a home or a way of life.

At Pennswood, residents can choose from 11 independent living floor plans to fit any lifestyle. Whether you’re traveling the world, chairing committees or getting connected with causes you care about in the community, Pennswood has a home for your lifestyle.

But in addition to beautiful apartment homes, it’s the resident-led activities and events that make Pennswood Village truly shine. Quaker Guiding Principles such as equality, integrity, stewardship and community spill over to many committees and the relationships among residents. In the spirit of independence, and a commitment to the Quaker Guiding Principles of individual equality and inclusiveness, Pennswood encourages residents to voice opinions and offer ways to enhance their community.

For example, Pennswood Village is a dedicated steward of the environment and its EarthCare Committee works hard to bring environmental changes to the community and the world. The Social Justice Committee brings awareness of peace, equality and social justice issues, and it also partners with the Quakerism Committee to celebrate advocates of civil rights.
