Pennswood Village is a Quaker-directed life care community at Newtown, Pennsylvania for men and women 65 years and older, without regard to race, religion, physical handicap, or national origin. Pennswood is under the direction of members of The Religious Society of Friends.
Pennswood Village is uniquely situated on a campus. Across the field is co-educational George School, a well-known Quaker secondary school, and down the lane is Newtown Friends, a Quaker elementary school. From this proximity comes the opportunity of living and learning logether on many levels, often as the spirit moves. It is a truly intergenerational community.
Pennswood is not a typical leisure village. There is time for relaxation, of course, but contemplative hours are likely to be balanced with a discussion of world affairs, a play or concert, or a hike along the Neshaminy Creek. Where others stress recreation, at Pennswood Village the emphasis is on re-creation. That hyphen is small but, we think, very important.
People at Pennswood find numerous ways to pursue particular interests and discover new ones. Activities exercise the mind and body not only within the community, but also at the neighboring schools - in nearby towns and villages - and in Princeton, Philadelphia and New York, all easily accessible.
For peace and privacy outside one's own apartment, common room, gardens (to look at and work in), and in the 225-acre George School campus provide quietly supportive and congenial atmospheres. Pennswood Village, said one resident,"...is for me not an end, but a beginning - new friends, new ideas, new work, new responsibilities."
Although all 252 apartments are occupied now, applications are being accepted for future admission. We suggest you write or phone the Admissions Office to make arrangements for a visit and preliminary interview.
