Healing Quilt

Healing Quilt
Date Created - 2002
In response to the tragedies of September 11, 2001, seniors from Germantown Home and students created the Healing Quilt. Designed as an American flag, the quilt was presented to the City of Philadelphia Police and Fire Departments. The Healing Quilt, replete with the seniors' and students' thoughts, prayers, and well-wishes was a way for residents and students to show their thanks to Philadelphia's everyday heroes. The quilt traveled for six months to various police and fire departments before being proudly displayed in Philadelphia's 9-11-02 Memorial March.

Germantown Home provides nearly 200 seniors with compassion, respect, and an unparalleled level of care. We blend a commitment to innovation with a dedicated and talented staff to create a warm, welcoming environment designed to feel just like home.

Our unique programs – such as Comfort & Joy™, SELF, and Pastoral Care – keep seniors physically, mentally, and spiritually active, and engaged with the community. And our beautiful 13.5 acre, park-like campus in the heart of Northwest Philadelphia is easily accessible via all major roadways and public transit, including Septa bus and regional rail lines.
