Senior Citizen Programs Through Catholic Social Services

Catholic Housing and Community Services (CHCS)  and Catholic Social Services provides programs and support for seniors. Through our network of independent living communities, our in-home care programs and neighborhood senior centers, we aim to support our senior citizens with dignity and respect.

  • Catholic Housing and Community Services, a division of Catholic Social Services, addresses the social, emotional, and spiritual needs of seniors to foster independence and health so they can continue to live in their own communities with a dignified quality of life.

    Catholic Housing and Community Services is committed to providing the best quality support for seniors and we are committed to helping loved ones find the right resources for their aging family members.

    If you or a loved one are seeking information about programs for seniors in your community, contact Catholic Housing and Community Services at 215-587-3663.

We offer light housekeeping, personal care, senior companions, and minor home repairs. This program is offered in partnership with the Philadelphia Corporation for Aging. In order to qualify, you must be 60 years or older. There is no income eligibility requirement. Transportation assistance is also available to those 65 and older.

  • Catholic Housing and Community Services supports older adults in parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. Through a team of Care Managers, we assist individuals and families by providing valuable resources, acting as advocates and liaisons, and coordinating needed services.  The core of our parish eldercare program is an in-home assessment and care plan that is tailored to each individual’s unique needs.
