About Inglis:

Founded in 1877, Inglis' Mission is to enable people with disabilities - and those who care for them - to achieve their goals and live life to the fullest Inglis House is a specialized, skilled nursing, long-term care community-based in Philadelphia, PA.  

Inglis House is a Person-Centered Care community specializing in services for 252 adults (mostly younger - average age is 46) with severe neurodegenerative physical disabilities resulting in paraplegia and quadriplegia.  Inglis' Person-Centered Care vision is to strive every day to create a homelike environment where residents and staff work together with autonomy and a deep sense of community. 

Along with providing medical and personal care, a key aspect of the mission of serving younger adults is recognizing that they typically have a wider range of needs than a geriatric nursing home resident. Younger adults, whether congenitally disabled or disabled later in life, struggle to achieve goals that give a sense of autonomy, mastery, and creativity.  Inglis House provides a range of medical, personal and enrichment services that enable residents to live life to the fullest. Our Adapted Technology program is nationally recognized - and can get anyone online. Inglis is one of only a handful of organizations in the country designated a “Center of Excellence in Long-term MS Care” by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and is one of only eight residential facilities throughout the United States offering such highly specialized, long-term care for people with physical disabilities.

Inglis also supports nearly 1000 people living independently in the community through resources including care management (helping people navigate the healthcare system), an innovative day program, Adapted Technology and community employment services.  

Inglis is the largest private provider of affordable, accessible housing in the Greater Philadelphia region with nearly 350 units, including 80 units opened at Inglis Gardens at Belmont in 2016 and 44 new units at Pennypack Crossing, developed with Conifer, opened November 2017 and more in development.
