National Aging in Place Council of Philadelphia

NursePartners and Rothamel Bratton (now Bratton Scott) co-founded the National Aging in Place Council in May 2016.  We realized that not all segments of the population had access to the same resources.  Individuals that are ineligible for public assistance, but also not wealthy, did not know where to access the resources to help them age in place.

How would older adults know who specializes in providing quality care for aging in place related services?  Who could they contact to make home modifications, downsize their residence, seek long-term care insurance, or enroll in hospice services?

This need for reliable and certified services spurred our desire to create a group that could provide solutions to these questions.  We could feel confident that our members supported older adults age independently, comfortably, and safely at home.  We bring professionals together to share their expertise from the private, academic, and non-profit services.  Together we collaborate on initiatives and educate the public.

We thoroughly vet potential members.  All NAIPC Philadelphia members have successfully completed criminal background checks, possess senior certifications in their field of service, and are verified by the group through reference checks and interviews.  We only want to refer the best service providers to our clients in their moments of need.

National Aging in Place Council Comes to Philadelphia

NursePartners, in partnership with National Aging in Place Council Philadelphia members, are pleased to announce the formation of the NEW Philadelphia chapter.

The National Aging in Place Council (NAIPC) is a non-profit association of service providers dedicated to working together to help people in their later years live a healthy and comfortable life in the home of their choice.

Members of the Philadelphia Chapter include geriatric care managers, elder care attorneys, home care and home health care professionals, dementia experts, financial planners, home remodeling,  caregiver support groups, and moving services.

The mission of the Philadelphia Chapter is to support the residents of Philadelphia and the surrounding areas by providing products and services to retiring seniors that allow them to remain in their homes comfortably, independently and safely. In addition, our goal is to educate the public through hosting educational events throughout the year about the importance of planning ahead.

If your goal is to age in place, we urge you to take advantage of our senior support network. We can help ensure you have a plan, understand all available resources, and assist you so that you can remain independent in the home of your choice.
