Celebrating 150 Years of Aging With Grace

Main Line Senior Care Alliance communities — Saunders House and Bryn Mawr Terrace — both have a celebrated tradition of providing exceptional care and services to seniors and their families.

As non-profit organizations, Saunders House and Bryn Mawr Terrace have an enduring commitment to older adults that stems from the philanthropic mission of our organization. We focus the entirety of our resources on the care and comfort of our residents. Our highly trained professional staff, array of services and homelike environment all serve to enrich our residents’ quality of life. It’s a tradition we’re proud to continue.

It all began in 1864 when Saunders House – originally known as The Old Man’s Home of Philadelphia – opened its doors to afford relief and the comforts of home to older men of reduced financial means. Operating continuously for 150 years, Saunders House has provided outstanding rehabilitation services and nursing care to thousands of senior citizens. Saunders House is located in Wynnewood.

Although its mission to provide quality healthcare services to older adults is the same as Saunders House, Bryn Mawr Terrace has been in existence since 1966. Operating as a non-profit organization since 2007, Bryn Mawr Terrace offers the exceptional services of a larger continuing care retirement community but in a quiet, homelike setting. It is located near Bryn Mawr Hospital.

Over the decades, both Saunders House and Bryn Mawr Terrace have evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of older adults and their families. Today, the two communities offer a continuum of care, including services such as short-term rehabilitation, traditional nursing care, restorative care, memory care, independent living and personal care, as well as specialized programs for those with visual impairments.

Saunders House and Bryn Mawr Terrace became affiliated in 2007.
