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. Founded in 1877, Inglis is a Person-Centered Care community specializing in services to non-geriatric adults 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. The 252 residents — all wheelchair users — range in age from 20 to 90 (average age 54) and their primary diagnoses a range of neurological and musculoskeletal disorders such as multiple sclerosis (fully 43% of the current Inglis House population), cerebral palsy, and spinal cord injury. Along with providing medical and personal care, a key aspect of the mission of serving younger adults is recognizing 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. Inglis House is recognized as a “Center of Excellence in Long-term Care” by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for its excellent clinical care and quality of life programs for people with physical disabilities — one of only 10 organizations in the country to receive this important designation. Inglis is one of eight residential facilities throughout the United States that offers such highly specialized, long-term care for people with physical disabilities.
Inglis Community Based Services supports more than 800 people living independently in the community through resources including: accessible housing, care management (helping people navigate the health care system), a day program, Adapted Technology training and community employment. Inglis is the largest provider of affordable accessible housing in the Greater Philadelphia region with more than 300 accessible, affordable apartment homes for people with disabilities, including 80 new units just opened at Inglis Gardens at Belmont Pennypack Crossing, developed with Conifer, opening this summer in the Northeast as our next housing site with more in development.
Inglis welcomes great people without regard to disability, race, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, military service, marital status, or any other characteristics, as protected by law. We encourage all Protected Veterans and the long-term unemployed to apply.
