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.

The Senior Community

The Germantown Senior Community is the NewCourtland Network's flagship campus. This 13.5-acre park-like setting in the heart of Northwest Philadelphia is easily accessible via public transportation, including bus (route H and route 23) and regional rail (Carpenter Lane stop on the Chestnut Hill East line).

Consistent with the organizational philosophy of providing innovative housing linked to supportive services wherever possible and appropriate, the Community allows seniors to seamlessly transition from one level of care to the next as their needs change.

Accordingly, in addition to Germantown Home, the Community includes apartments designed for independent living, cottages for the memory-impaired and their caregivers, dormitory-style living with round-the-clock supervision, and housing designed specifically for seniors transitioning out of nursing homes and back into the community without compromising their safety.
