Doll Making

Doll Making
Date Created - 2000
The Doll Making program teamed residents from Germantown Home and local students in a series of intergenerational activities that challenged the seniors' memories and expanded the students' understanding of and respect for the residents. The displays were accompanied by an audio recording, edited from interviews to provide a narrative dimension to each doll.

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.
