Welcome to Saunders Nursing and Rehabilitation Center

Compassionate Care, Advanced Healing

The idea for what is now Saunders Nursing and Rehabilitation Center arose in the spring of 1860 when three women visited the Widow’s House in Philadelphia and realized that a similar organization to care for older men did not exist. In July 1860, the Court of Common Pleas granted a charter for the establishment of an old man’s home. The Civil War intervened, and the project was put on hold until a new charter was applied for and granted in April of 1864. The Old Man’s Home of Philadelphia opened its doors in 1864 to afford relief and the comforts of home to older men of reduced financial means.

The Old Man’s Home later evolved to become Saunders House, as it began admitting women in 1960. In 2022, under new ownership, Saunders House rebranded itself and is now called Saunders Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

Located in Wynnewood, adjacent to Lankenau Hospital, Saunders Nursing and Rehabilitation Center has become the residence of choice for older adults and their families in the area. Saunders Nursing and Rehabilitation Center offers exceptional short-term rehabilitation therapies, traditional nursing care, memory care, respite care, restorative care, as well as care for those with visual impairments.
