Founded nearly a century and a half ago, Inglis enables people with disabilities — and those who care for them — to achieve their goals and live life to the fullest.
Since 1877, Inglis has made a commitment to helping people with disabilities. Inglis serves people living independently in the community, as well as those living in our residential long-term care community.
Inglis House is a specialty nursing care facility providing long-term, residential care for 297 adults with physical disabilities, including multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injury and stroke, among others. Residents receive rehabilitative medical and nursing care; physical, occupational and speech therapies; and a selection of more than 20 social enrichment and therapeutic recreation programs every day.
Inglis Community Based Services supports more than 800 people living independently in the community through resources including: accessible housing, care management (helping people navigate the health care system), a day program, an MS Evening program and community employment.
Inglis is the largest provider of affordable accessible housing in the Greater Philadelphia region with 208 housing units, and plans for 50 more units by 2015.
Inglis also assembles and markets a patented hands-free water bottle for wheelchair users called Drink-Aide® — sold both nationally and internationally.
All Inglis services and programs are designed to enable people with physical disabilities to enjoy life with the greatest amount of independence and mobility.
