Sterling Glen sits just off Benjamin Franklin Parkway, a busy street lined with architectural masterworks, museums, theaters and restaurants. Located right near the hub of Center City, the facility enjoys spectacular views of the Logan Circle Fountain and the Franklin Institute. Residents maintain active lifestyles, participating in a diverse activity calendar with movies, exercise, cocktail hours, current events groups, games, religious services, high tea and trips into the community.

An attendant staffs the gorgeous lobby twenty-four hours a day, locking the main doors in the evening. New furnishings enhance the elegant décor, with a baby grand piano, inlaid marble flooring, oil paintings, statuettes and tapestries. The hallways house couches, armoires and potted plants, creating pleasant visiting spots just inches from residents’ rooms. A massive skylight spans the entire length of the fifth level; a top-floor balcony provides residents with space for flower and vegetable plantings.

A nautically themed bar, the bistro and the main dining room all occupy the first floor. The dining room, with a chandelier and fine table linens, overlooks Logan Square’s many famous landmarks. A sitting area off the dining room has a china closet, wooden chess, checkers and backgammon tables and assorted greenery. Residents who require feeding assistance eat in two upper level dining rooms. When we visited, the braised pork chops, grilled swordfish and chicken cordon bleu all looked and smelled delicious, and the dessert selection was enough to satisfy even the most insatiable sweet tooth! Residents exercise, play games and attend discussion groups in the first floor multipurpose room. The second, third and fourth floors all have their own libraries. The fitness center doubles as a therapy and rehab room. The movie room, with a big-screen TV, offers residents a quiet spot for watching movies.

The management at Sterling Glen of Center City practices the philosophy presented in Fish!, a management parable that encourages staff members to adopt a conscientious work ethic and passionate commitment to both work and play. This approach trickles down to residents. One ninety-six-year-old resident we met still maintains a busy volunteer schedule, and two other residents who met onsite are currently planning their wedding!
