All about Mercy LIFE

Mercy LIFE is a program that helps seniors stay healthy in their own homes. We offer health care, social services and much more.

Mercy LIFE helps seniors who have:

  • chronic illness, like COPD, diabetes or kidney disease
  • memory loss
  • difficulty providing personal care, such as bathing or dressing

A Built-In Community

With Mercy LIFE, seniors can go to one of three LIFE Adult Day Centers in Philadelphia. At the centers, they enjoy activities and hot meals. They can socialize with other seniors. And they have appointments with LIFE doctors, nurses and social workers.
